What exactly are you?!
It seems like these days, so many people are so unique that popping the old "sexuality label" on...just isn't working! The other day, my friends were discussing sexualities I have never even heard of, and I had to ask them what they meant, and what the differences between that and your standard LGBT is.
Demisexual is where someone gains a physical attraction to someone only after falling in love with them. This is different from pansexual, which is "gender blind", and bisexual, which is a sexual attraction to both genders. At first, I thought it seemed kind of useless. But then I began to understand about a month ago, when I had my own identity crisis for a while. Sometimes, people are just so different, that they wan to stick a label on it because it's much easier than having to explain the whole rigmarole to everyone that asks.
Now, I've settled on bisexual, but mostly gay, but it wasn't always like this. I have a little drag/alter ego personality called Jason, who is a heterosexual male. But that makes me, a female, lesbian, doesn't it? But when I'm not in drag, I have been known to find a very select few males to be sexually attractive. I've even had a very long relationship (5 uninterrupted years) with a boy. But my ex, and one other male, are the only exceptions to my rule, so when I say "bisexual", it makes me feel uneasy, because I don't feel bi. I feel like a lesbian. It's just...complicated.
So this is why I pose my question to you, dear friends. Do you feel like you're in the "un-label-able" ? And if you could define your sexuality in a few sentences or a paragraph, how would you do so, and why would you do it?
Also, what are some interesting sexualities that sway away from the common ground, that you've heard of recently?
Open for a big discussion, so keep those comments coming!
