The difference between bisexuality and pansexuality: a powerpoint guide.
I dig it. For me, a big part of why I identify as bi rather than pan is because my attraction to people is emphatically not gender-blind or “I fall for the person, not the gender.” Gender is a huge part of why I’m attracted to particular people…I just happen to be attracted to multiple genders!
And honestly, the other reason bi is a better label for me is that as a parish minister, I spend an inordinately large amount of time coming out to people who are 65+. Bisexuality is a marginally more accessible terminology for them than pansexuality, in general, and that matters to me.
why would you use ponies from a childrens cartoon for a powerpoint about sexuality. like this is so fucking stupid yes the powerpoint is nice and all but please refrain from labeling characters from shows sexualites that arent canon to them unless you’re talking about a headcanon
Yeah. Also, this doesn’t really clear up much. Bisexuals are attracted to their own gender and other genders, but Pansexuals are attracted to all genders… What?
Well, a few things.
First, “more than two” does not always equal “all.”
Second, I really go into detail here in those last 3 slides. Maybe read them again, starting at “seems like there’s a lot of overlap there”
Third, I used the ponies because they match the color scheme of the pride flags, I like ponies, and they add to the light and cheerful tone of the overall powerpoint. (Also, “refrain from labeling characters with sexualities”? I have a feeling very few people would be bothered if we assumed Twilight was straight. But oh, showing that her colors match the bi flag is out of line? Really?)
Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she was interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
