So apon further reading on omni/pansexuality, I'm fucking confused. What exactly makes this different from bisexuality?
Jack Harkness in particular is described as 'omnisexual' by the series's creators, having come from a future where the Kirk approach to first contact is common, and one character believes he will go for anyone who is "gorgeous enough"Thanks, popular culture. :-/
I'm a people person. If I like someone, I like them. And whether they have a penis or vagina doesn't bother me. But that is my definition of bisexuality.
Maybe I'm just too black-and-white about there being two genders, male and female?
I consider myself a bisexual but I *could* be called a pansexual, because rather than limiting myself to males and females, I'd have no probably being with people transitioning or identifying as a gender different from their sex, whatever, I don't care. Love is love, right?

Hello, I found this club, and it peeked my curiousity. I have a strong suspicion that I'm bisexual, meaning I'm attracted by a person's personality, rather than their appearance (e.g. being male or female).
I believe you mean it piqued your curiosity ;)
I'm attracted to both in a person, but definitely attracted to looks first.
I'm not sure how to handle this, though. My sister is very open minded, and I think she suspects it. My brother, on the other hand, is near-homophobic.
Any thoughts on how to deal with this situation?
I'd really appreciate it...
You don't really have to tell them unless you are in a relationship with the same sex, and even then it's up to you whether to say anything or not. If you want some support, telling your sister might be a good thing, depending on how she reacts to the information. Remember even if people react negatively at first, they may just need some time to adjust and could come around. Your brother may even be more supportive than you think. Hating a group of people is harder to do when you know one, especially if it is someone you love. Maybe you'll be his exception. Who knows?

Happy Day of Silence :D
I participated, i put a big piece a tape with "Shut Up" pre-printed on it.
I got a lot of glares and a few remarks, which made me kinda angry. But for the most part, it was fine. At least 80% of my friends participated.
Very awesome, glad most of your friends participated as well!
