I don't understand what it really truly is. Of course I understand gay, straight, bisexual. But what is this "pan" sexual?

Bisexual means two, that they find both genders attractive. Personally I identify as pansexual because not everyone fits neatly into those two choices, people are a lot more complicated lol.
But really, gender isn't important to me. If I like someone, I like them. Simple.

It's a label for people who are bisexual but don't think that sound edgy enough.

That has always been my view on the subject too. :)

i believe it extends to transgendered people as well. So you might date someone who looks and identifies as a female, but perhaps hasn't had gender reassignment surgery so still has a penis. or vice versa. It's not letting any sexual boundaries hinder your attraction to the person, from my understanding.
