    Amen.

    I keep calling out: "I am the infinite, I am joy!"

    Or, "Let's go to the edge of time, and step off."

    If sexuality is based on what is done, then nobody can really say what I am. It's not enough information for them. I'm a really 40 year old virgin. However, mythical animals are in. It doesn't mean I'll ever consummate anything, but I would definitely like to meet a mythical animal for coffee and possible LTR. We are not in hurry.

    What kind of orientation is it where you want to meet mythical animals? Also, do you have to be a young virginal maiden to pet a unicorn, or can 40 year old virgin males do it?

    I'm heterosexual. I think other people have doubts about my sexuality, but I personally haven't on a viseral level. I had an incident round about when I was 24 where an (older) bisexual women tried to force herself on me, and yeah I had issues for a long time surrounding my sexuality and the vibes I was putting out.
    A friend of a friend, who happened to be a lesbian, put my mind at ease though, although she thought it amusing a heterosexual woman was doubting her sexuality. Actually she laughed really hard. Then told me, my signals were clear enough in regards to my sexuality. Others have said the same. It's straight women who question my sexuality most often. I'm not the picture of absolute feminity, you see, and as one lesbian friend said I'm a very strong personality (whatever that means).
    I think it's got a lot to do with my very strong sense of independence, or something. I struggle with gender roles some what. Always have. I am also bothered by the fact that I have such a womanly appearance....it sort of betrays my more adrogeneous sensibilities, but I love men well and truly.
    I did used to entertain the idea that I could fall in love with anyone, no matter what, and if we weren't stuck in these stupid flesh containers that are driven by pheromones, and hormones, I probably could, on an intellectual level, especially being some what demisexual, but some thing about boobs, and Vee-jay turns me off. I don't even particularly like my sex as a whole. I'm very fond of particular members, don't get me wrong, but women as a group are very strange.
    I think gender identity can some what confuse the sexuality issue. I think because I don't really identify with what it is to be a woman, and I don't identify with what it is to be a man...it can make things confusing (for other people.) Or maybe I'm just confused.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    I think gender is a really confusing subject in general. Honestly, if I could get away with it I wouldn't consider myself either gender, because that's how I feel comfortable. But most people want things neat and tidy and in their own pretty little boxes, and can't believe it when I tell them what I think about gender. I always get a "But come on, really, what gender do you really side with?" or "It's an easy issue, look down your pants and that's what you are."

    Also what really gets me is when people assume gender identity and sexual orientation are on in the same @.@ I just walk away from that argument as soon as it starts.

    This is only slightly relevant, but I was reading on one site that John Grey (author of "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus") is INFP. To me, if there's anything an INFP is not, it's not that. His whole worldview and career centers around these banal notions, and to have it associated with INFP irked me (more than the usual celebrity typing. I generally don't care). I don't think INFPs are androgynous or asexual necessarily, but it seems to me that they'd generally seek a bigger picture on this subject. At least, I don't think many would lock genders into specific behavior or communication styles.

    i prefer not to put a strict definition on my sexuality. I see it as something fluid. gender and sexual orientation don't mean much to me as i tend to just love people rather than a specific. i guess if you had to define it i would be classed as a polyamorous pansexual.

    I swing back and forth between being a highly sexual person and utter asexuality when the whole idea is simply 'meh' to me. in my late teens/early 20s i was compulsively sexual and discovered a lot of things attracted me. As i got older this only increased and i really dont think i could say that definitions fit me.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    Dammit! I wish I could Facebook like this post! What happened to that feature in the relatively recent re-vamping of this forum, HUH? *sighs*

    Well, just because you don't agree with him, that doesn't mean he doesn't share your type - it's about behavior, isn't it? That said, I also don't agree with his ideas, and those comments about "men vs. women" and the whole war of the sexes irk me.

    I see myself as mildly gender fluid, but I am without a doubt a cis woman. Perhaps not a "woman" in the traditional understanding of what one must do or have to earn the title, but a woman, nonetheless.

    Wait, is this what the OP's about? Gender identity? *goes to re-check* Oh got it. I'm het but have on the very rare occasion been sexually or romantically attracted to a woman. Never both sexually and romantically attracted, though, which is why I figure I'm not bi.

    Sexual orientation is something that I've never struggled with or had any confusion about. Men just aren't sexually appealing to me. I do find gender roles overly restrictive, however.
