What are the different types of sexualities?
Recently, I have discovered that there is more to the LGBT. How could they be distinguished?
Heterosexual - attracted to opposite sex (Straight)
Homosexual - attracted to same sex (Gay, lesbian)
Bisexual - attracted to both same and opposite sexes
Pansexual - attracted to person not gender or gender expression (so, all genders - including pre and post op transgender individuals, gender fluid people etc)
Asexual - not sexually attracted to anyone at all.
Transgender - born into the wrong gendered body eg male born into female gendered body or vice versa.
Cisgendered - born into gendered body that you identify with - eg male born into male gendered body.
Then you have the list of gender fluidity - so, gender queer, gender fluid, bi gendered etc
There are otherbut I can't remember them all.
I'm a Cisgendered gay woman, so part of the LGBT and even I get a bit confused!
It's also important to note that gender (trans, cis, fluid) and sexuality (homo, hetero, pan) are two separate things.
That's very true. I was answerin in a break so not a lot of time, but should have been more clear! Thanks
Thanks a lot! I never knew that there are so many of them. I was trying to figure them out because I get confused whenever I encounter these terms.
