I refer, of course, to the label-based definition of sexuality, where people either
like men, women, or men and women. I won't go into the gender dichotomy that is
predicated upon, it's not required.

When you ask someone what their sexuality is, even yourself, the answer is almost
always used to answer another question. For example:
  1. Might you find me/he/she/it/them attractive?
  2. Why are you acting in a way contrary to the norms of this/my society?
  3. Are you and him in a relationship?
  4. Is it worth pursuing my desire to engage in SEXUAL CONGRESS with you?
The answer to no. 1 is, in every case, "Maybe". It's possible, at some point. Whether I acts on this is another matter. This question is also predicated on the idea that you know what my sex/gender is. You don't. Question no. 2 is used by people to explain some form of deviant behaviour by putting a label on you. Question no. 3 can be asked straight out. Question no. 4, well, that's akin to question no. 1. Question one, I imagine, is the most important reason people label themselves with a sexuality. The problem is, it ain't asked because they want to know if you like guys or gals, it's asked because you want to apply that generalisation to a specific case (one person). When you think about it, saying that there's no chance you'll find some three billion people on the earth attractive (based on the tiniest portion of them that you've seen), is rather odd anyway. I'm not heterosexual, since I might find a man attractive. I'm not homosexual, since I might find a woman attractive. I'm yousexual, since I might find you attractive. It'll catch on. You just watch >_>
