Not really to do with the code etc. - but I read about 2 couples where one of the partners was a straight guy, with another guy - so they didn't feel attraction to men, but felt love and attraction to their male partner, as an exception to their sexuality ~ I think that's awesome (not saying that everyone has the potential to be with everyone) - It makes me angry when people assume that everyone else in the world is experiencing life just like them and thinks that others are just being difficult for not following... (like straight people who don't believe that non-straight-ness actually exists, or pansexuals who believe that everyone has the potential to love everyone and we're all just being difficult) - yes, you have lived your whole life in your skin and only have the one experience, but if you listen to people's first hand experience on YouTube etc. and have faith that they are describing their experience truthfully, you'll see that different people are different ~

That's why I think codes like this are a good idea: it succinctly summarizes a persons complete orientation, which has a significant chance of being a convoluted mess (we are, after all, only human) and one word (like asexual, pansexual, bi, straight, etc) can't and shouldn't be expected to cover the depth and richness of possibilities.

It's very nerdy, I like it

..and then there are people who say "why does everyone have to be a special snowflake, just conform to everyone...." ಠ_ಠ ..just jealous that others are more interesting and have the cognitive faculties to comprehend numbers higher than two and concepts more involved than their own simple life/ perspective.. I mean the animal kingdom is f*'ed up, it's awesome ~ people should just do what they want...
