I plan on raising my own kids and encouraging my loved ones to raise their kids with the same mentality that I had to figure out on my own, the one that lead to my pansexuality. That none if it really matters, it’s just another part of you as a person. My children will get complete and honest answers to their questions, and I hope to raise them in an environment where there is no need to “come out”. I don’t announce to my family that I do, in fact, like to collect antiques and probably will my entire life, same as I didn’t announce that I am capable of loving someone no matter what kind of body they’re in. My children will know the difference between sex and gender and the futile triviality of defined sexual orientations, and I plan on explaining that society thinks differently, to prepare them. So they can survive out in the wild of the world with such completely different beliefs without being ostracized as children from the beginning. Hope this made sense, it’s 3:30am where I am, haha.
If I ever adopt I plan on teaching my kid(s) about all the different orientations, the difference between gender and sex and various gender expressions … but I’d be so afraid of what would happen when they reach that age that conformity becomes a vital matter and same-sex attraction / “atypical” gender expressions become taboo, scary, the object of ridicule and jokes.
I don’t know, hopefully children (and society in general) will be more open-minded and accepting at that point. Who knows, though.
