John Travolta – sexuality – pansexual, gay, straight, homosexual, bi-sexual

Why are we so concerned with someone else’s sexuality? I would like to promote pansexuality*, although gossip would probably come to a standstill in Hollywood and the political arena.

Pansexuality, also referred to as omnisexuality,[1] is sexual attractionsexual desireromantic love, or emotional attraction toward persons of all gender identities and biological sexes.[2][3] Self-identified pansexuals may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are insignificant or irrelevant in determining whether they will be sexually attracted to others.[4] The Oxford English Dictionary writes that pansexuality is defined as “not limited or inhibited in sexual choice with regards to gender or activity.”[5]

The concept of pansexuality deliberately rejects the gender binary, the “notion of two genders and indeed of specific sexual orientations”,[6] as pansexual people are open to relationships with people who do not identify as strictly men or women.[7] read more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pansexuality

Excerpt from the Huffingtonpost blogs by Joe Kort, Ph.D.: Why We Care About John Travolta’s Sexuality

The truth is that having sex with another man, even repeatedly over long periods of time, doesn’t have to mean that the man is gay or bisexual. After all, being gay and bisexual is about much more than what happens in the bedroom.

I have seen hundreds of heterosexual men come to my therapy office and men’s workshops with same-sex behaviors, worried that they might be gay. However I have always been able to help these men distinguish between their organic, innate sexual and romantic orientation and their sexual preferences.

Many gay men, especially those who were heterosexually married, become angry at this notion, because they lived their lives for many years in the closet and identified as straight themselves, or even as bisexual, until they finally came fully out of the closet. The difference between those gay and bisexual men and straight men is that there is no closet to come out of. There doesn’t exist an identity formation around sexual orientation. These men are truly heterosexual. Read the entire post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/joe-kort-phd/john-travolta-sexuality_b_1579081.html?ref=gay-voices
