A Dating App for Pansexual Women

Pansexuality is fairly common, but also often misunderstood. A basic definition for pansexuality is being attracted to people regardless of their gender identity. The attraction can be emotional, physical or sexual, depending on the individual. ‘Pan’ is a Greek prefix that means ‘all’, therefore pansexual dating is dating all genders, in the same way that bisexual is two (or more) genders and homosexual is the same gender.

Like all sexualities, pansexuality is separate from gender identity, and people of any gender can identify as pansexual. Pansexual dating apps work best when they include users of all sexualities and gender identities, whether that’s lesbians, non-binary people, genderqueer people, bisexuals or trans people. HER caters to queer women of all kinds, and is inclusive of trans people and non-binary people too. so if you’re looking to connect with other pans, queer women or non-binary people, download HER today and find your perfect person.

Pansexual or bisexual?

Many people get confused about the difference between pansexuality and bisexuality, and truthfully there is no clear cut line between the two and everyone has their own way of defining them. Generally, pansexuality is considered to be attraction regardless of gender, and bisexuality is considered to be attracted to multiple genders, but gender is part of the attraction. So bisexual women would fancy women partly because they’re women and genderqueer people partly because they’re genderqueer. Pansexuals just don’t mind either way.

Because ‘bi’ literally means two and ‘pan’ means all, some believe pansexual is a more inclusive term. But this idea has pretty much been totally rejected by the LGBTQ+ community. It’s more about which term feels more comfortable to each individual, however they choose to define it themselves. You weren’t made to fit a label, the labels should be made to fit you – and this is a perfect example of that. Some people also prefer the term queer, because it’s less specific than bisexual and pansexual. Whatever feels right to you, go with that!

History of pansexuality and The Pan Flag

Pansexual is one of a number of ‘omnisexual’ identities, which means attraction to multiple genders. Pansexuality uses the ‘all’ prefix to reject a binary view of gender or the idea that there are only two genders. But despite its definition as ‘all genders’, this doesn’t mean being attracted to everyone. It just means that gender doesn’t really come into the equation. Love is love, and whoever you’re attracted to is amazing. Be proud to be pansexual! 

The pan flag has been floating around on the internet since around 2010, and is thought to have been created by a user called Jasper V on Tumblr. But pansexuality existed long before it had a flag. Flags have historically been used in the LGBTQ+ community to bring visibility to different sexual orientations and gender identities and gain recognition both within the queer community and more broadly. The pan flag consists of three horizontal stripes: blue, yellow and pink. The blue stripe represents attraction to those who identify as male or masculine, the pink stripe represents attraction to those who identify as female or feminine, and the yellow stripe represents attraction to everyone else, including non-binary people, genderqueer people and intersex.
