I've responded in good faith. Because I've had more negative experiences with bisexual people who clearly state they only date WITHIN the gender binary (so people who are male or female, wouldn't date someone who is transitioning) that maybe that's coloured my view of bisexuality.

Which is very much "if it works for you happy days, it don't work for me"

Also I've never seen anyone act like the bi-community is lesser, I've just seen people choose labels that resonate with them. I've also stated that I will be bearing your points in mind to move forward, because ultimately yes to you bisexuality may encompass in writing and in your experiences everything pansexuality wants to be, but not everyone has the same experience.

And I'm not saying I'm going to judge everyone who's bisexual from my own experiences as a terrible person, but my own experiences give me pause to use that label for myself. And sometimes labels move forward beyond their problematic starting points, which isn't to say the starting point isn't problematic, but language changes and evolves.

I have issues using the word 'queer' to identify myself, I still view it as a slur. Other people are comfortable with it, and I'm happy for them, language moves and changes and that's good.
