Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
Simple. I'm a bisexual transman. While my orientation might better be described by some as pansexuality (because I'm attracted to non-binary genders besides man/woman), I figure bisexual is simplier for people outside of the LGBT community to understand and I've spent long enough avoiding the label anyway.

Transman- I'm FtM but find I'm not overly fond of the term. I'm transgender and I identify as male hence, transman.

I'm simply Bisexual. But when I place it specifically, it would be somewhere along the lines of Heteroromantic Homosexual because I have a strong romantic attraction towards females, where most male attractions are 'primal' if you will.

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
Well I identify as a Bisexual. Or if I want to be more specific (as of now) I would say Homoromantic Bisexual because my attraction to females is less romantic than sexual.

That seems really shallow to me, but I like having girls for friends (most of my friends are girls in fact).

Possibly homolexible, for now gay

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
This is a simple definition but 'Polyamorous' means to be in a relationship with or to be attracted to more than one person at the same time, as opposed to a monogomous relationship which is only two people.

Gender: Androgyne/Transgender. I'm pretty much smack-dab in between male and female. Does that mean every waking moment of my life is there? No. There are times when I'm doing a guy thing and other times when I'm doing a girl thing. But being presented as someone who could look like either a male or female is really pleasing to me, as I don't follow either to the tee, nor remotely. Also, most of the things I do or reasons for doing them have more of a realistic outlook. For example, if I'm fixing a toilet, it's because it's not flushing and it needs to work. I also dress with aspects that could have either gender, as it's mostly a T-shirt, jeans and a hoodie.

Sexual Orientation: Gay. I'm biologically male, and actually plan to keep it that way. I don't need a ripped set of muscles to be a guy, and having a penis actually does have some advantages such as being able to stand while peeing. I also have a boyfriend, and I know he wants me to keep my body as a male.

Romantic Orientation: Biromantic. I usually see girls as the prettier ones, but I will admit to have fallen for guys as well. If I do ever have the chance to get drunk, my guess is I'll be much worse than I already am XD

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual, but I lean to guys. And I don't think I'll ever go out with a girl because I romantically like guys a lot more.
Gender: Technically, I guess you could say I'm MTF. But I really just don't give a shit (I would very slightly prefer being a woman, but not enough to really care), and so I'll stay a guy, like cBuilding.

I can think of a few more:
  • Aromantic (does not experience romantic attraction)
  • Gray-asexual (aka gray-ace) (not technically asexual, but finds asexuality useful in describing their experience)
  • Gray-aromantic (aka gray-aro) (same as gray-asexual, but for romantic attraction)
  • WTF-romantic(does not understand romantic attraction and can't say whether they feel it or not)
  • Lithromantic (experiences romantic attraction, but has no desire to act on it)
  • Neutrois (don't know enough about it to be able to give a satisfactory explanation)
  • Transmasculine/transfeminine (similar to trans man or trans woman, but not wholly binary)
  • Demigirl/demiboy (feels some affiliation with either of the binary genders, but not enough to really identify with them; applies to people regardless of whether the gender they side more with is the one they were assigned at birth)

As for myself, I'd probably say I'm a gray-ace/-aro (maybe wtf-romantic/-sexual) femandrogyne with a preference for women. Gender-wise I'm more female than male but experience discomfort when gendered. Because this was the gender I was assigned at birth, I don't identify as trans. I've pretty much given up on figuring out what my sexual and romantic orientations actually are. What do you call it when you are more likely to develop some sort of feelings for men but only ever develop desire for women...?

Gay :newcolor: :pride:

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
I'm a biromantic homosexual. This means I'm attracted to guys physically and emotionally but I'm only attracted to girls emotionally. So Basically, I'm bisexual.

Hrantou 26th Jul 2013 07:25 PM

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
Incredibly 10,000% gay. (Yes, ten thousand percent) :D

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
Bisexual hits closest to home... I've also considered biromantic heterosexual, questioning, and bicurious in the past. A lot of people dislike "queer" but I find it all-encompassing and less fixed, which I think sexuality is.

cis-gender bisexual male...super femme? :-)

Gay...I'm sure of it. I've considered all POVs of bi and none of them fit me. (that might've been a bad way of phrasing it)

George 26th Jul 2013 08:39 PM

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
I'm pretty certain that I'm gay. I don't think any of the other labels fit me.

Re: identities, what are they and which do you fit in?
 
Gay. One word, short, and simple.
