Miley Cyrus stuns everyone again with an announcement of her new and profound sexuality as the 22-year-old singer recently spoke to Elle, explaining about being pansexual. ?I?m very open about it ? I?m pansexual. But I?m not in a relationship. I?m 22, I?m going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I?m with.?
With that in mind, before reacting to any Miley Cyrus?s statements, it?s better to fully understand the meaning of being pansexual. Being pansexual ?generally means that somebody is open to either falling in love or being sexually attracted to people of all genders,? according to sex researcher Debby Herbenick, PhD, associate director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotions at Indiana University, in an interview with Yahoo! Health. Being pansexual is also generally being open to any kind of people, regardless of being homosexual, bisexual, gender-queer, or even transgender. ?It just widens the scope,? she explains.
The 22-year-old actress then adds her statement in being available and open to anyone as long as it?s legal. ?I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn?t involve an animal and everyone is of age.
?Everything that?s legal, I?m down with. Yo, I?m down with any adult ? anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me. I don?t relate to being boy or girl, and I don?t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl,? Miley said in an interview with Elle.
Of course strong opinions and reactions are bound to come out in social media. Some may be willfully accepting and all right with the Miley Cyrus pansexual,
i wish @MileyCyrus had been around to come out as pansexual back in the '80s when i was a terrified and lonely closeted kid in wisconsin

Others, maybe not so much.
Miley Cyrus came out as pansexual which I am pretty sure means she is turned on by fat guys with goat legs who play the flute.

As long as Miley Cyrus is being true to herself and can still create hit songs, then being a Miley Cyrus pansexual is no problem.
