Opening Arguments

Mary, Mary, quite contrary

If you've ever wondered what the hell a "pansexual" is, let Texas State Rep. Mary Gonzalez explain it to you, since she just came out as one:

Gonzalez… continued: “As I started to recognize the gender spectrum and dated along the gender spectrum, I was searching for words that connected to that reality, for words that embraced the spectrum. At the time I didn’t feel as if the term bisexual was encompassing of a gender spectrum that I was dating and attracted to."

As Gonzalez defines it, apparently a “pansexual” is attracted to men, women, men who identify as women, women who identify as men, and everything in between, because they don’t recognize “gender binaries.”

Yeah, we've thought for a long time we should do away with those silly, arbitrary "gender binaries," huh? Basically, if I'm reading this right, Mary's philosophy is to nail anything that moves. Sounds like a man to me.

 "Pansexual" sex sounds dangerous.  Maybe Trojan will start making rubbers out of potholders

Will nail anything that moves? Sounds like a man? Speak for yourself. I guess I'm naive, but I assumed she had a thing for cookware. Sounded like the perfect woman until you spoiled it for me.
