Who you choose to be with doesn't determine whether YOU are a faithful person or not. That's almost like blaming the partner when someone cheats on them. If a person chooses to cheat (and yes, it is a choice), that person would have likely done so regardless of the gender of the person they are cheating on.
Someone with a cheating mentality will do so for a variety of reasons. However, if their brain already okays it for one reason, who’s to say it won’t do so for another and another and another.. and so on? People don’t cheat simply because they are pansexual. They cheat because they are cheaters.
In fact, as a pansexual, I can say that pansexuals may be less likely to cheat for gender-related reasons than those of any other sexual orientation. Why? The very definition of pansexuality should explain that. Most people who identify with the pan label love souls, not genders. Many, like myself, don’t factor gender in at all when choosing a mate. Rather, a mate is chosen and appreciated based on who they are as a person.
There is often no craving for a specific gender, as gender is not what defines how a mate is chosen. A pansexual might choose to be with a female, a male, a trans individual, a fluid individual, a binary or non-binary individual, and any combination thereof or in between. Again, we see a beautiful soul, not a label or body part. This is not to say that pansexuals can’t or won’t cheat. Anyone can cheat. However, to say that all pansexuals are unfaithful is absolutely ridiculous, based on the facts mentioned above.
Because there is often not a specific gender being sought after, and all gender identities are appreciated, there is no reason to cheat based solely on the gender of a chosen mate. Cheating is of course possible for a pansexual person, just as much as it’s possible for any person. However, the choice of a pansexual person to cheat on their partner is more likely to be based on other factors and insecurities than it is to be based on the fact that they are pansexual or that their partner is not a specific gender.
Knowledge before judgement - it’s always a good thing.
P.S. The author is (gasp!) a faithful pansexual.
