WHILE watching the Prime Time special on transgender issues in Ireland, a third-level student of my acquaintance remarked that, during her university debates, students are asked as a matter of course to give their name “and what pronoun you prefer to be addressed as”, writes Alison O’Connor.
This comment was made in a “by the way” manner , nothing sensational, in the same way that you hear that younger generation bandy about the word pansexual.
Revealing my age and stage in life, I did have to refer to Google to check out exactly what ‘pansexual’ was and discovered, in a nutshell, that it means not being limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity. It appears to be a whole new pansexual world out there.
