AnonymousIf the definition of bisexual is same and other, how is that different from pansexuality

Simple matter of English my friend. The prefix bi- means two - meaning it refers to two things. Bisexuality refers therefore to a preference for two unique genders. The prefix pan- means all. Pansexuality refers therefore to a preference for all (or in some cases I suppose most) genders. If you imagine gender as a spectrum (not a straight line, but a moving four quadrant graph), it would mean bisexual people would find attraction only in certain points, but pansexual would fall all over the map. But a lot of this depends on the individual, and since sexuality and gender fall on that type of spectrum, pinpointing it exactly is difficult and there will be variation, but as a general rule of thumb, that’s a way to think about it.

Bisexual does NOT MEAN TWO SEXES OR GENDERS. It means two or more. MOST bisexuals use that definition.

Maybe I didn’t make it clear.

Here’s some charts (ignore the numbers - I just ripped a chart off Google Images that I could easily work with).

When I said bisexual can fall in multiple spots, I meant just that - multiple spots. Could be two. Could be more. But more than one - it’s easiest to understand by the prefix though, since y’know, the prefix DOES mean two, and when explaining that type of thing, when you start throwing in “Well pan means all but bi means two or more” that is how you get people asking questions like “What’s the difference”.

Also I don’t think you could say most bisexuals use that definition, since I doubt it’s ever been proven. Every bisexual I’ve met off Tumblr means two. If they mean more than two they say pan. And I know very very many bisexual people - I live with two of em. 

This is language, people. You can personally identify however you so please, when you can’t get indignant when it confuses people outside of that group with semantic arguments. Remember, by nature people have a hard time relating to experiences they don’t personally experience, and this goes for ALL people, and so a person who is not bi, or pan, or even a person who is bi or pan, but who has always understood those are being two or all, is not going to be suddenly understanding when you use obscure or easily confused definitions, especially since the concept is already difficult to understand on its own for many people.

They definitely won’t be itching to support you if you get indignant about it.

This isn’t a question about how people personally identify. This is a question about definition. Definition is not a spectrum of experience, it is precise. When explaining your experiences, you can identify as whatever you want, and explain it as it personally relates to you. That is personal, and your decision. On a general scale of definition, when trying to explain the concept to people who don’t understand, you stick with the simple. As a rule of life. By strict definition, I would be bi. But I don’t personally identify as bi, I don’t feel that definition suits me. That’s my decision. But if I try to explain lesbianism I’m not going to throw in qualifiers to make that definition fit to my experiences because that just means if that person comes across someone who doesn’t define it by my experiences, it will just confuse them, or worse. The anon wanted a generic definition. I provided one. If they want to ask personal experience and personal labels, then they’ll get that. But there’s a separation between those two and I think we need to start grasping that if we want discussions of this nature to be at all beneficial to anyone.

If you are a white woman don’t ever say “kill all men” or “I hate all men” because that is a sure way to anger woc because you are forgetting that not too long ago you could get any man of color killed just because they supposedly disrespected you and even now you are forgetting that your white fathers, brothers, husbands, friends are killing our brown and black boys via cops and drones

Fred Rogers Acceptance Speech - 1997

Our neighbor didn’t die, he was just needed someplace else.

He took a moment that was about recognizing him and turned it into a moment to recognize everyone who was there and everyone who made it possible for him to do what he does. If you want a perfect example of why he is so fondly remembered and such a great person, it’s tough to find a better one than this.

Mister Rogers is like, the one person where the more I find out about him, the more I love about him. It’s such sweet relief, rather than being disappointed in a celebrity when you find out more about their personal life, to go “my God, what a thoroughly good human.”

Fun Historical Fact: There used to be more gay and lesbian content in early silent films until religious groups protested resulting in “decency standards.”



THE WAY THE ONE GIRL LOOKS DOWN ALL SHY AND THE OTHER CUPS HER FACE SO SWEETLY TO COMFORT HER- AHHHH

THIS IS MY FAVORITE GIF OF ALL TIME. I ALWAYS GET HAPPY WHEN I SEE IT ON MY DASH GAAAAH.

Fun Historical Fact: This is a scene from the movie, Orphans of the Storm. A movie about two sisters who are not romantically involved and are instead caught up in the turmoil of the French Revolution, separated, and eventually reunited.
Get your facts straight. Do you honestly think the 20’s would have been accepting of the gay community? Oh yeah, women can’t vote, work or think for themselves, and people of color are lower than dirt. But lesbians? Yeah, okay we’re cool with that.
Fuck off. Stop spreading misinformation.

an important factual presentation by me

All the facts.

Wasn’t it proven she could have been light or fair skinned because of her biological family lineage though?

She has lineage from Ancient Greece

There are white people native to northern Africa.

Cleopatra was white, dumbasses.

Her dynasty was descended from Alexander the Great: she was greek.

Her dynasty also perpetuated itself with constant inbreeding: Cleo was betrothed to one of her brothers, and upon his death, married another one.

SHe probably didn’t have one drop of non greek blood in her. 

Deal with it, historical revisionist crybabies.   Brattishly declaring “there’s literally no argument shut up” won’t make anyone take you seriously, nor will it make your feels into reals. 

Also, I’m white.  I still have olive skin.  You know, on account of all the white people who live in the MEDITERRANEAN.

Jesus fucking christ.  You stop trying so hard. 

To top it off, the original post is a straw man to begin with: nobody is saying that the ancient Egyptians looked like fucking Swedes, there are just a few people who reject the Afrocentrist version of the story where Africa = 100% black and the Copts don’t exist.

What’s also funny is that this Murrica-centric revisionism of Egypt doesn’t just erase its actual inhabitants (who were not black, because tthe world isn’t divided into Sub-saharan africans and white Europeans), it actually perpetuates the erasure of the many advanced African civilisations that have flourished throughout its history: such as Ife, a kingdom that existed in Nigeria, and whose advanced and beautiful realism in their artwork was immensely shocking to the Victorians, who could not believe such beautiful and realistic sculptures could have been created on the “Dark Continent” as they called it.

As seen here:

And of course, the ruins of Greater Zimbabwe, the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Zimbabwe.  These ruins date from the Iron Age.

See more here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Zimbabwe

There is absolutely NO reason for this revisionism of Egypt, especially when it allows more people to remain ignorant of the many advanced civilisations and kingdoms that have existed throughout the history of Africa in favour of a delusional portrait that erases the true ethnicity of the Egyptians, simply because they were not white.

Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign

Cleopatra was Macedonian. Her ancestors came from Macedonia when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt. This was a very important event in world history that you should know aboutEven Zahi Hawass, the foremost Egyptologist in the world and Egyptian himself, says Cleopatra was not Egyptian and he undoubtedly know more about it than you do.

Here are some images of busts of Cleopatra:

And here is an image of some Macedonian ladies doing ethnic Macedonian things in the Balkans, where they are from:

This is The Balkans, it’s in Eastern Europe. The former Macedonia is right there in the center of White People land:

I hope this post has helped cure some of your ignorance about history!

PS I left out the part about how Egyptian temple paintings and carvings were stylized and weren’t meant to actually look like the people portrayed but were more symbolic in nature because i didn’t think you could handle that much truth in one sitting.
