Pansexuality, or omnisexuality, is the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity. Pansexual people may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are not determining factors in their romantic or sexual attraction to others.
At the age of 15, I had a crush on a trans male, and it didn’t click in my head that he wasn’t born as a male. I know I’m going to sound dumb I didn’t know what a transgender person is. Therefore I connect the label to myself but any case that person stayed in my mind from that on for a simple that I saw him in myself, but that story is for another day.
In my teens, I had crushes on males and female. Every time I had a crush on a girl I had to hide it. I grew in a mindset that a man can only love a woman and that a woman can just love a man. Which is wrong and as an adult I disagree a lot with that idea. When I told my mum that I like girls too, she was okay with it to my surprise. By the way, I came out as pansexual at the age of 20. My last word of advice is you no matter what gender you are or who you love. Love is love.
