What it is:
Pansexual people experience sexual attraction to people, regardless of gender. “Pan” is short for pansexual.
Why the current bill falls short:
The existing language in the bill strictly enumerates three protected classes of sexual orientation: Homosexual, heterosexual, and bisexual. Pansexual is not on that list.
Pansexuality is similar to bisexuality, but they are distinct identities. While it may be possible for a pansexual person to be covered by the bisexuality clause due to the similarity, such a claim would require the individual to surrender part of their identity for the sake of legal expediency. That is an unacceptable bargain to force someone to take.
