Anonymous said: Hi, I'm a pansexual who has been out for about a year now and I've gotten over various hurdles such as getting my conservative father to accept my sexuality, but now I have a problem I don't know how to face. I have a friend who is very accepting of my sexuality but is very immersed in the whole "appropriation of cultures and sexualitys " and she insists that since I'm genderfluid I cannot be pansexual and I should stop saying that I am, How do I tell her that she is wrong?
…..try as i might, i can’t even begin to imagine what kind of argument your friend could possibly have that would link your genderfluid and pansexual identities to appropriation….??
and since i’m totally unable to understand her argument, it’s nearly impossible for me to correct her…. i don’t even know what she believes that i should be addressing!
could you please give me more information? i’d really like to try and help you with this… :(
