We can now add the term pansexual to the ever growing list of groups people are “identifying” with.
Miley Cyrus recently revealed she is a pansexual. I know…what the…?
Believe it or not, Merriam-Webster has a definition:
“Exhibiting or implying many forms of sexual expression.”
According to Debby Herbenick, Associate Director at the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University, pansexuals are sexually attracted to people of all genders.
Cyrus has an even more expanded definition, according to a recent article in Yahoo News:
“The 22-year-old singer-actress spoke about her sexuality in the October issue of Elle UK, telling the magazine, ‘I’m very open about it — I’m pansexual. But I’m not in a relationship. I’m 22, I’m going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with.’ “
Cyrus spoke about identifying as gender fluid and her open view of sexuality last month in Paper magazine. “I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age,” she said. “Everything that’s legal, I’m down with. Yo, I’m down with any adult — anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me. I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl.”
Nice to know, Miley. And here I thought you were just a singer. It’s not enough that Miley is arguably vocally capable. She must make a statement about who she is, because in truth, she is completely unaware of who she is.
Here’s what I know with certainty. If Miley Cyrus can’t produce hits, nobody will care about her pansexuality. You have to wonder what the parents of the little girls who grew up idolizing Miley Cyrus in her role as Hannah Montana are thinking about these new developments.
