“I identify as pansexual, which to me means that I like…I don’t base who I like sexually on their perceived gender. Like if they look female but they’re actually male, I don’t really notice that.
I don’t notice a person’s gender when I first see them, cause everybody does this whether they realize it or not, in the back of their head when they see a person, they automatically have that moment of ‘Ooh. I’d totally do that person.’ Gender for me doesn’t play a factor in that. It just, it’s never played a factor.”
