Anthrosexual (the prefix "anthro-" meaning person/human being) is a term literally meaning that one experiences sexual attraction to human beings, with the implication that the gender of those humans does not affect the attraction.[1] Some have defined anthrosexual as "another word for pansexual".[2] People who experience attraction without regard to gender have the right to choose which label(s) they identify with.

History[edit]

"Anthrosexual" was in use as an orientation label by 2005 or possibly earlier.[3]

An anthrosexual flag was posted to DeviantArt by the user SaffronMasalathekiwi (they/them) on 20 February 2018. However, they defined "anthrosexual" somewhat differently, saying that it meant:

« person who doesn't have their sexuality confirmed, they could be heterosexual, Homosexuals, Bisexual, Pansexual or Asexual.

Or just stay Anthrosexual and be something like a Pansexual! why not?[4]
