I'm a cisgender male, polysexual and polyamorous. I tell most people I'm "bi" when I don't feel like explaining progressive gender/sexuality terminology. Amusingly, I often don't have to mention being polyamorous because there's a whole lot of ignorant people out there who think every bisexual person just wants to hook-up with anyone willing at any time.

I identify myself as a gay woman, instead of lesbian, because I do not like how local preachers say the word, lesbian. It irritates me. So, I just don't use it. I say I am a gay woman to avoid any confusion.

I'm bisexual. I've actually known this ever since I was nine years old but I had no idea what it was during the time. All I knew was that I found male and females both attractive and it was very confusing for me. Now I'm comfortable in my own skin-only thing is I wish I had more GLBT friends.

Trans* and androsexual (but celibate due to personal choice). I think, really, it's only a few internet friends that know. My family apparently think that Conchita Wurst is "disturbing" and wrong and all kinds of terrible, so if they're that uncomfortable about just a gender non-conforming drag persona, I don't think I really want to know what they'd say about me if they found out how I identify. Luckily, though, I live a solitary life and seem to be much more disconnected from my body than most, so I don't have much need to be 'out' anyway. Wish I could magic my body into the one I was supposed to have, though. Wish I could then magic myself into an awesome person with justifiable oodles of confidence. Gah, I just wish that magic was real. Magic would solve everything. LOL.

Teansgender female, pansexual but definitely more physically attracted to men (my answer would have been just pansexual a year ago, but things change).

Also, I identity as asexual,but my asexuality is tied in to both a very low libido and being unhappy with a certain part of my body

agender and (pan) gray asexual

i don't feel like a guy or a girl, and after agonizing over this for a long time i realized that's just fine! i used to be very preoccupied with how i looked to others (did i seem too masculine or feminine?), but now i'm focused on my own body happiness.

as for sexuality, i'm a fairly sexual person, but i rarely experience attraction, and i doubt i'll ever actually have sex anyway.

I've met many spiritual people and they see sexuality as emotional. These people are very kind and open. I am not as spiritual or as open as them but it has led me to believe that you can be bi sexual. I would even go as far as to say that bi sexual people are more enlightened than those who are not. I am one of those who is not, but my interaction with these men and women has led me to believe they are more capable of seeing the intricacies of both sexes and able to understand intimately, with little judgement and yet with concrete commissary to both.

Well, since I am a woman who is in a relationship with another woman, I am a lesbian.
But I don't like 'that' word. It conjures up bd pictures in my head of something scary .....
I remember long before got brave enough to "act" on my feelings, I was "scared" of being labelled (& being ostracised).
It's an interesting subject though because ...... I often wonder if heterosexual people have this kind of debate?
Would they consider themselves as labelled in some way?
What do you think? I believe they might not even think about it.

I don't identify as anything, I simply feel attraction to people who have attractive personalities and nice bodies, though bodies come in second if I'm considering having relations with someone.

I'm not even attracted to people most of the time.

I guess it's easier than being an ugly guy in the dating pool.

Now I'm just an ugly guy outside of the dating pool.

I'm not sure if I replied to this a while back or not, but if I did my answer has changed.

My sexuality is bisexual (leaning towards women) and my gender is either agender or genderfluid between female and agender.  
Heck, my nicname now is Raz rather than Mina since it's more unisex of a nicname, but since I like the idea of a Catholic Priestess as an empowering image for myself (uh, yeah) I'll keep being Mina on this site. 
....
I feel kinda odd having such an expanded sexuality and gender. 
I've been told by my father (and an ex boyfriend) that I have too much time on my hands to be figuring this stuff out.


Pssst, if you're wondering about the icon it's because I was raised Catholic and always wanted to be a priest despite growing up being told I wasn't allowed since I was a girl.
This pixelated priestly portrait is kinda special to me in a weird empowering way...it gives me the idea that I am something beyond my gender, my mental illness, and anything that would otherwise try to hold me back! :flowers: :inlove:

I'm still figuring that out. I feel quite genderfluid most of the time, I enjoy wearing women's clothing, and lately find myself attracted to men as well as women, at least sexually. I am in a happy marriage with a woman who is very open minded and considers her gender quite fluid as well. I think at the end of the day gender not as rigid or dichotomized as some people make it out to be. So whether I'm feeling more masculine or feminine, I'm just me. :)

Bisexual.

I had my first really crushes in eighth grade -- one girl, one guy -- but I didn't know there was a label for what I was. Putting a name to what I was feeling honestly didn't cross my mind at all.

Then in the beginning of high school I flirted with the idea of being a "homoromantic bisexual," but now I just go with "bisexual."
