Anonymous asked: I have come out to a couple of people in the last few months as pansexual but many of them keep just referring to me as a lesbian or gay. Im not upset but more worried that people don't understand or just won't listen even when I try to correct them in what they have just said. What should I do as i think this might be a problem with them not believing that this is a real sexuality?
Be firm in correcting them about your sexuality. If they refuse to refer to your sexuality properly, it would be best to distance yourself from them, as that is highly disrespectful. If someone refers to you as gay or lesbian when you are something entirely different and refuses to acknowledge that it exists even after you correct them, it might be best to limit the amount of time that person is in your life.
