Hetero-sex-ual, homo-sex-ual, bi-sex-ual. These things are all tied into sex. None of them describe the way I feel. I’m a person. “Sex” is not what I use to define myself.
I am a person, I am romantic, I am attracted to my significant other, my significant other has a penis. These things do not define me.
I have thoughts and dreams and hopes, I have accomplishments and I make mistakes. I like to watch movies and play on the computer. I have hair that I dye different colors depending on my mood.
Don’t all these things say more about me than my so-called “sexuality”?

    “Sex” is also a synonym for Gender. You are diluting the word to fit your rant.

      This, my friends, is an example of ignorance. Sex and gender are not synonymous. Sex refers to the biological makeup of a person; what someone is assigned at birth. Gender refers to that which the person identifies with, the external identification, portrayal of self.

      Sex, as I used above, is mostly in reference to the act of sexual intercourse, which is another thing entirely.
