Big Thread of Sex, Gender Identities, and Sexuality

I'm a trans dude and see my body as male (because I'm male and it's my body). I'm pansexual and -romantic.

I'm biologically female, I guess I'm closer to femme but really I'm a tomboy and don't like the butch-femme dichotomy, and I identify as queer or bi. Biromantic or polyromantic, depending on the circumstances.

Biologically male, I see myself as androgynous. Identify as agender. I consider myself androphilic or "homosexual" if you are going solely by physical sex and NOT gender.

I would date someone of anywhere on or off the gender spectrum, but I admittedly have an overwhelming preference for male bodies.

I am a soft butch female lesbian. I answered 'other' to the sexuality question because I have recently come to discover that what I am is called (for lack of a better term, and I hate labels by the way) a stone auto-erotic. What this means is that I derive pleasure from giving other women pleasure, but I prefer to masturbate to give myself pleasure. I really don't like having other people 'handle' me.

Interesting poll.

I'm definitely a femme hetero female!

My body is female. More masculine than feminine. I'm strongly attracted to FTMs, andros, and only secondarily attracted to males. I'm demisexual. Panromantic. I identify as genderqueer.

Born female. I identify as male. Panromantic asexual.

Born female, highly uncomfortable with my assigned gender, but those feelings aren't always strong enough for me to fully identify as transgender.

As for my orientation, I'm a panromantic asexual.

Physically a male, but I am more woman than you'd believe.

I know I didn't include everything, but I tried to get a good amount in. Also, 42 seemed like a good stopping ...
Oy, is it sad that I didn't know what more than HALF of those were?! LOL

I am female bodied, mostly femme, bisexual and biromantic, in a long term heterosexual relationship.

My body is female, and I'm heterosexual and heteroromantic, although there are times when I'd like to see what having a penis would be like. I think that's just mostly my curiosity, though. Even if I had a penis, I still wouldn't trade my husband for someone female-bodied.

Friends joke me that I'm butch (for stupid reasons like I don't paint my nails or like pink) but I identify as femme so I put that in the poll.

Female body, male mind (transexual), pansexual, panromantic, etc.

i'm biologically female, identify and present as male. transmasculine/ftm. hetero, meaning i'm attracted to vaginas. open in the sense that i could see myself smashing/loving people outside this, but it isn't as likely. in a monogamous relationship with a cis female.

I'm biologically female, demisexual, heterosexual and romantic, and genderqueer. I have what I call gender compensation - around strongly feminine groups, I swing more masculine, and around highly masculine groups, I swing more feminine. I've been referred to as both the perfect boyfriend and the perfect girlfriend. In writing or role playing, I completely adopt the gender of the character I'm working with. I've started regarding my male identity as a separate persona.

My male identity is panromantic, but homosexual (as in, he will romance people of either gender, but is only sexually attracted to penises).

Body is female, gender identity is male (so i guess trans*). Uhh presentation is male or androgynous. I'm pansexual but I'm not romantically attracted to people... just physically. If I'm "romantically" attracted I'm not physically attracted and I'd rather hold them close as much-loved friends rather than in a uhh sexual/intimate relationship. So I put other on the romantic interest because idk what that would be at all.

My body is female but I identify as genderqueer and present androgynous. I am asexual but questioning in my romantic attraction.

Female, 100% femme, heterosexual and heteromatic.

(Please forgive me if this post winds up in the wrong place - I'm new to this forum)

My body is female (I have mixed feelings about that - I dislike having breasts in public and refuse to tolerate having periods) but I identify and present as nonbinary (I'll accept genderqueer or androgynous too).

I really have no particular sexual orientation... I'd describe myself as sort of A-flexible - primarily/naturally asexual, but I can be sexual some of the time (I don't think I have established preferences yet, but I'm not really drawn to people who are heavily invested in the gender binary). It's sort of complicated and I know it sounds very weird but I'm still learning about who I am and this is what I'm like right now. Haha.

I consier my body as neutral, just /there/, but I am aware it is genetically female. I don't ientify as transgender, I -am- but I identify as male. I'm polyamorous and pansexual X3

I was designated female at birth but I'm most comfortable just describing my body as a genderqueer body, because that's how I identify. I'm pansexual and panromantic - also polyamorous, though that wasn't part of the poll questions.

Interesting poll. To use the terms from the poll, I'm female-bodied, present as mostly femme, and consider myself at the moment to be aromantic asexual. I'm a bit unusual for an asexual person, though, since despite my lack of sexual attraction towards other people, I have a high sex drive, and greatly enjoy masturbation. I just...don't feel any kind of sexual or romantic attraction. This is often difficult for me to explain to people who've known me for a long time, since I experience sensual and aesthetic attraction: I can find people physically appealing and desire touch (cuddles, mostly), I just don't really experience any sexual or romantic attraction, despite the part of me that wants to experience it. I think that maybe, if I wasn't asexual/aromantic, I think I would be pan- or omni-sexual/romantic, but there's just always been that lack of attraction with everyone. It's still messy and confusing right now.

I'm a genetic male that didn't experience Gender Dysphoria until age 40 although I've felt like a woman my whole life. I started to come out at around 35 but I guess it just took the right conditions and a feeling of safety before I could conciously accept it.
Now I'm sorting out how to live life as a woman at work and home in a way that won't cause alienation.
I identify as a bisexual female, polyamorous and pansexual. I'm currently genderqueer and genderfluid.

This is really interesting.

These are such complicated issues! I was surprised at how many options were on this list, actually, since I'm not used to seeing that many in one place.

Personally, I'm physically female, and identify at the moment as genderqueer. I actually spent some time when I was younger living as male, but because the situation was created by an attempt to stay safe, it left me rather confused over what it said about my actual gender. I honestly feel a little 'locked into' a female role in society because of being a mother, and don't feel that I have a lot of current options for gender expression.

In terms of sexuality, I identify as either bisexual or pansexual depending on how much I feel like explaining the terms. I tend to prefer sexual and romantic attachments to women, but have had long-term relationships - including a marriage - with men as well, and have dated a few trans* or genderqueer folk (and one intersexed male).
