OMG, what a mess. Please calm down. First of all you are referring to this threadhttp://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4137314
where I had already explained pan as orientation but also
where (and what your irritation seems to be)...
UndercoverMan saidANY sexual practice? So you're into shit play?
Any covers a WHOLE lotta territory! That's why I think pansexuality is a crock of shit.
Any sexual practice is referring to sexual orientation, the fact that you brought up shit play is just demonstrates that you're being juvenile.
...which is both a misunderstanding on your part and a careless misread on the so-called lawyer's part of what...
RaulMoonPride said that...I have found on Wikipedia..."Pansexuality is a human sexual orientation characterized by the sentimental, romantic, sexual and aesthetical attraction independently of the gender or sex of other people and any sexual practice."
He was in the wrong to misread "any sexual practice" as a part of an orientation when what he referred to said specifically that it was independent of the orientation. That gay men kiss does not making kissing gay, anyone can kiss. This is not complicated. Also, of course, he was being disgusting to emphasize his wrong point, as if we wouldn't have noticed him being wrong without his drawing our attention to it. So that's either a kindness or a stupidity. Judge for yourselves.
But also you've fucked up, because you stated that "sexual practice is referring to orientation" when that is just as untrue. We might in fun call ourselves practicing homosexuals but that's just to assure we eventually get it right. Practice makes perfect, it does not make an orientation.
Where some confusion might play by all this bullshit, is the difference between identity and orientation which, again, is not defined by practice. A str8 man can have sex with a gay man, that doesn't make him gay. A gay man can have sex with another gay man yet identify as a str8 man, that doesn't make him str8.
Orientation is how we are oriented on the inside, to what gender--or, I suppose for the exotic among you, the inanimate object of your desire--turns us on. This is pretty simple. Same sex attraction is gay/lez. Opposite sex attraction is str8. Either is bi. Following so far? Because it's gonna get a little complicated now: neither/either could be a) asexual when the sex drive is low or b) pan/omni when not just str8, gay or bi but when combined with an attraction to--hold onto your heads, they're about to explode--trans.
I know, I know, this is quite shocking and needs more study. But from what we seem to know so far, some people are naturally born intersex. That we know. Then--ok, get out the smelling salts--why wouldn't some people be naturally attracted to them if they are naturally occurring? Others alter their born genders by how they feel naturally inside. Then, again, why wouldn't some others be naturally attracted to them also. Those attracted to them include the pan/omni people who are not gender specific in their attractions, whether or not they practice any specific preference which is not by itself an orientation, the preference of practice, not the orientation of attraction.
So orientation is an attraction, not an act. Not even acting str8 which is more a matter of identifying not of orienting. It is that simple. Get over it.
