Hey man. So I know you shouldn't categorize yourself or anything but really? I just want to know what all the different sexuality, gender, and romantic labels/identifying words are. I know... a lot I think. ehe... I mean so, far I know: pansexual, bisexual, lesbian, gay, genderfluid, transgendered, cisgendered (kinda confused about that one but I've got the general idea), asexual, demisexual, panromantic... etc... I'm definitely forgetting some haha but I really just want to know. Not to categorize people or myself, it would just be easier and helpful I believe.

(Also? We don't really think there are shoulds/shouldn'ts when it comes to what, if any, words people find useful in describing any part of their own lives or who they are, including things like their sexuality, gender identity or relationship status. So, if you want and like words, use all the words you want! If you don't want to, ditch'em! It's up to each of us.)
