The first album by the Gossip is genuinely amazing.

I love X-Ray Spex but that record sounds absolutely nothing like them. I mean, there's a female singer I guess.

Man, I think that band improved a lot when the singer died.

why.... why would you say something like that?

Quote
Hallelujah
 
I've never been a huge fan of cover versions, but without a doubt, my least favorite cover version ever is Jeff Buckley's pitiful rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Buckley  turned this passionate religious classic into a sappy under produced love song. Cohen's version has him backed by an enormous choir and band, while Buckley's version only has him with an electric guitar, which makes it much less impressive. I mean, I'm not a religious person in the slightest but still, bigger is better.

I think a lot of people saw it and assumed that Chavez were hugely popular. Like, successful enough to sell out those giant arenas, donate enormous cheques to charity and fly to show in a helicopter. I guess if you make people think you already "made it", you might even "make it".

Pansexual can also mean that the person deliberately doesn't distinguish a gender preference out of contempt or disagreement with the traditional views of sexuality.

There are Pansexual women on this forum who are not remotely attracted to women but don't consider the distinction important enough to state an active preference.

Not really.

Having to identify as a specific sexuality is silly. I think it's a step in the right direction of sorts.

It's always come across as strange to me that one is expected to 'come out' as homosexual, but never heterosexual.

Oh for the love of...

No, really, it's silly.  A woman who is only attracted to men is straight.  By definition.  They don't "have" to "identify" as straight, but they are.  I don't "identify" as white (because I'm 1/4 Native American) but I am pale and therefore would be classified as "white".

I don't "identify" as male but I was born with a penis and testicles so by definition I am a dude.

People don't "have to" come out as homosexual, "coming out" is a phrase used to mean "letting people know that, upon reflection, you are gay".  There are plenty of gay people who have never "came out" because they were never "in" in the first place.

I'm sorry, but that's patently absurd. Every gay person I have ever met has had to 'come out' not because they were hiding their sexuality from themselves or from others, but because people didn't know they were gay. My point is that, really, heterosexuals should have to do the same sort of thing. If someone doesn't explicitly say to you "I fancy dudes/ladies/whatevers" then you shouldn't make assumptions about what they do like.

Using anecdotal evidence is absurd too, but let's run with it.  How many gay people have you known?  I've known, I don't know, at least a hundred, I would say.  Most of them never "had to" let anyone know they were gay.  They just were.  Now, granted, a lot of times their parents, being old and old-fashioned, would assume they were straight until they actually showed up to dinner with a same-sex partner and explicitly stated "This here, this is my partner" but that's not the same thing as "coming out".  Anyone I've ever known who has "come out" has been someone who thought they were, or tried to be, or pretended to be, straight and decided "OK, actually, not really" and wanted to tell everyone so they could feel better about not living a lie anymore.

You're right that people shouldn't assume other people are straight (nor should they assume they're gay) but that isn't what we're talking about here.

No, that's not what I was arguing against.  Is sexuality incredibly complex?  Yes.  That doesn't mean there aren't such things as gay, straight and bisexual people, nor does it lessen the silliness of someone who is only attracted to the opposite sex claiming they aren't "straight".

If "coming out" is simply stating one's preference, I would say that a good percentage of the species does that on a regular basis. The kind of guys who when asked about the new girl they're seeing include some variation of "rockin tits" as a primary factor of attraction tend to come out at least once a day.

As far as anatomy goes, sure, two sexes. But what causes romantic attraction? Is it really what the other person is hiding under their clothes (or, I guess, should it be)?

Umm, maybe. I actually don't know. But as far as being attracted to an individual personality goes, "male" and "female" and thus "gay" and... "not gay" (straight? normal?) don't really cut it anymore.

Anyway, I think that's the issue at hand underlying this terminology.

Why shouldn't heterosexual people have to "come out"?

Well lets look at this from a biological point of view. A male in order to reproduce will have to have an attraction for a female or vice versa. This being quite a crucial survival instinct for the species as a whole it would be fairly safe to assume that someone was straight unless otherwise stated. I'm not being offensive to homosexuals here I hope but having to "come out" as heterosexual is like coming out and saying you eat meat. Most people would assume that you would eat meat unless specified before hand. Having people in a sort of Schroedinger's cat state of Gay and Straight is just a little silly.

But as far as being attracted to an individual personality goes, "male" and "female" and thus "gay" and... "not gay" (straight? normal?) don't really cut it anymore.

But for some people, why not?  There really are some people, including, I'm sure, many in this discussion, who are only attracted to one gender.  Ever.  I don't see the problem in saying they are "gay" or "straight" because of that.  Is it a shorthand?  Sure.  Does that make it invalid?  No.

I personally believe that everyone in the world is bisexual to some extent, at least potentially.  That doesn't stop some people from claiming they are only attracted to one gender, and if someone is willing to commit to only ever being attracted to one gender then I feel no remorse in calling them "gay" or "straight".

Pansexual can also mean that the person deliberately doesn't distinguish a gender preference out of contempt or disagreement with the traditional views of sexuality.

There are Pansexual women on this forum who are not remotely attracted to women but don't consider the distinction important enough to state an active preference.

As having dated someone who was pansexual for 2 years (in a heterosexual relationship) I kinda have my biases about the subject (since it ended shitty); there's definitely a part of me that thinks it's bullshit, but it's dwarfed by the part of me that knows that my experience is just one in 1000000000000000 so... Yeah... People can be pansexual.

I kinda think that this thread just got interesting. Anyway I hit reply before you posted so I'm in the clear right?

Basically what I wanted clarification of was this statement here:

someone who is only attracted to the opposite sex claiming they aren't "straight".

I was under the impression that pansexual meant more not claiming a sexual preference than claiming one different to what you might be. It is not so much a sexuality as an outlook on people judging people by their sexuality. Am I on the right track?
