Bisexuality is a sexual orientation whereby a person is attracted to both males and females. On the other hand, pansexuality is a sexual orientation whereby a person is attracted to all genders, including transgender, intersex, genderfluid, and gender non-conforming individuals. Bisexuality is based on the gender binary, which is the assumption that there are only two genders: male and female. Pansexuality, however, does not take into account gender and is instead based on the individual’s attractions.
Bisexuality is generally seen as a subset of pansexuality, since it is limited to two genders. Pansexual individuals, on the other hand, may be attracted to any gender, regardless of its social or biological definition. Furthermore, pansexual individuals may also be attracted to individuals who do not identify with any gender, such as agender or genderqueer individuals. In this way, pansexuality is more inclusive than bisexuality.
