Self Aware & Caught In The Identity Cross Fire

in Real Talk

If you’ve ever been hurt in a relationship you might have considered being alone, regrouping and focusing  on yourself. Some of us explore ourselves inwardly and outwardly finding that we ourselves are fluid with all genders.

When it comes to dating many of us want a better answer that explains our ideas about what definitions to use. GLAAD is a media group helping shape the narrative by provoking dialogue that leads to cultural change. Social attention is on correctness and definitions while Pansexuality among other LGBTQIA+ extensions is a organic existence and presents a love towards all human beings. The attraction to energy and seeing beyond identity. Gender blind people might say. The diversity among the community is extensive with many classifications. When not informed about, gender, sex, and sexuality this can be confusing. If someone identified as pansexual, they can be attracted to any gender identity, even if you yourself identify as a woman or man. This is composed of the prefix pan-, the sexual attraction to a person of any sex or gender.

Some of these celebrities are free in their expressions of themselves to name a few like supermodel Cara Delevingne, recently music artists like Janelle Monáe “I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker.” Miley Cyrus “I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy,” and Angel haze. In an article with The Guardian Angel mentioned “you have to be fearless. If I fall, if I float, I’m going to be me regardless. People are going to hate you and they’re going to love you with a passion you cannot imagine. I’m feeling the love right now and I’m feeling the hate too, it comes hand in hand. I’m happy more love than hate.” Either in their music or on social media people have come forward expressing their ideas. They may even get caught up in the middle of social media identity cross fire “Fans Educate Kehlani on LGBTQ Definitions”. Many tweeters pointed out that her definitions of the things she doesn’t identify with like being “queer” weren’t right. Kehlani deleted her tweets because they offended people, writing that she learned an important lesson in her apology. All these stars are true to themselves and don’t rely on other opinions on pansexuality. There is a common misunderstanding that pansexuals are turned on by all things sexual, including fetishes, animals, and non-consensual acts. Some people even confuse pansexuality with a person not identifying with any gender but many pansexuals identify as strictly male or female as well as non-gender normative. This isn’t a gay agenda not a phase but a revolution.  First mentioning being bisexual Janelle later explained “I read about pansexuality and was like, “Oh, these are things that I identify with too.” I’m open to learning more about who I am.

If we shared a life without the diversity and adversity we wouldn’t know what being at peace with ourselves is like. Curious people want to know what you identify as. Does it matters? Can we come to a common agreement that all lives matter? is there a way for all to be free and not be criticized about what we love and don’t. All our ideas of ourselves and our neighbors shouldn’t bring fear but be encouraged to see through into the idea that all lives matter and what we decide to do in our private time shouldn’t dictate who we are in our professional lives. How we perform by accepting, respecting and valuing LGBT people and their contributions in our society.
