Miley Cyrus just revealed that she is pansexual. But will her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth accept for her sexuality?
The “We Can’t Stop” singer said in an interview that she never really understand her own gender and sexuality.
“I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl,” Miley Cyrus told.
The former Disney actress also said she never really liked being a girl or a boy, and that her confusion led her to knowing the term “pansexual,” Variety said.
But what is pansexuality?
The Hollywood Life said the world pansexual came from the Greek prefix “pan” which means all.
GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said that a pansexual is a person has interest to all genders, a report from USA Today said.
She added that pansexuality is under the bisexuality umbrella, though it has specific definitions.
“Pan is more about all-inclusive, and bi tends to be more than one,” she said. “The golden rule, honestly, is to call someone by how they identify.”
It mirrors the definition of a CNN report that pansexuals are attracted to multiple gender identities. The term has also been used since the days of Sigmund Freud, the report added.
With Miley Cyrus’ bringing in the pansexual term in today’s generation, what could be Liam Hemsworth take on this?
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, who got back together late last year after splitting for two years, are now rumoured to be engaged.
Will this affect Liam Hemsworth decision to pursue the wedding with Miley Cyrus?
