Terms[edit]

*cough* Just to be nitpicky and answer the question: How about homotransromantic (as in: "same transitioned gendered romantic". as opposed to transhomoromantic which would be "transitioned to the same gender romantic")? Or just queer? Why does she need a label at all, unless she wants one for herself? OddBoyOut (talk) 11:38, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

*cough* I think that was a rhetorical question —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.11.184.15 (talk) 14:45, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone say affectional orientation? Romantic orientation is something I've heard of and had discussions about, but I have never seen or heard the term affectional modifying orientation except in this article. Maybe change the name? If anyone has ever heard this phrase used elsewhere, tell me.Vellushair (talk) 00:02, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

By their definitions, biromantic and panromantic appear to be the same thing. 'Attraction to your own gender and any other gender' is simply an alternative wording of 'attraction to all genders'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.168.198.98 (talk) 09:22, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Reference #5 is broken. Additionally, there don't seem to be any sources for the list of romantic orientations/identities (I've tried the obvious Googling, but it mostly seems to come up with unreliable sources that can't be used as references). Does anyone know where appropriate sources for these can be found? 164.39.3.124 (talk) 16:07, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Outside asexual community[edit]

This article seems to suggest that Affectional orientation is something unique to the asexual community. Are there not however examples of this outside? What about Platonic love, for instance? And what about people who identify as bisexual but are simultaneously heterosexual and homoromoantic or vice versa? Unfortunately, I have no concrete evidence for this, other than my own and others' experience, so I'll have to get back to you when I've looked a bit further into this.86.177.186.206 (talk) 23:46, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

See the last paragraph. I quote: “Aromantics can still have a sexual orientation (e.g., ‘aromantic bisexual’ or ‘aromantic heterosexual’).” Everything Is Numbers (talk) 11:56, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
