It's perfectly possible that OP has some constraints on sharing his sexuality because of past abusive experiences. While sexuality is something that should be inconsequential on how he's treated, you have to consider that for him it may be a legitimate fear.
oh yeah

(Recorded since July 7, 2016) Don't try and tell me it is because of public disapproval or discrimination, because black people have been hated against for years on years, arguably worse than trans-gendered people. however the suicide rate is only 6% (rounded from 5.9) as of 2015, so please if you respond tell me a new, more valid point.

People will not care what you identify as, I don't care, nobody else should care. But if you shove it in peoples faces and force the acknowledgement of your sexuality because you feel different you will become a burden.

My advice to you Anonymous-toribasher is to seek help for this problem, whether it be this number 1-800-273-8255 (Suicide prevention hotline) or find someone who you can confide with in confidentiality in your real life.

There are appropriate places to express yourself, but I don't believe the best place to be on a video-game forum. I hope you didn't expected a warm welcoming from an internet community where trolls and anonymous douche-bags lurk.

I hope for you the best in your endeavors, please seek help.

This is really a respect issue. Not acknowledging someone for how they want to be presented is a sign of lack of respect. It's a really bad social practice, and I think you'll get much more out of your social interactions if you approach them with an open mind. You can acknowledge someone without throwing away your beliefs, all you have to do is to listen. Therefore, the people who are at fault are the people who aren't able to acknowledge someone for what they are. If people consider you a burden for it, you should consider cutting them off, depending on the circumstances.

Just so you know, transsexualism is the act of swapping your physical gender (or has been associated with that recently). The preferred term is transgender for people who define themselves as something else. Also has nothing to do with pansexuality. I don't require you to know your terminology, but it's good to know if you want to show transgenders respect.
Gender dysphoria seems to be accepted as a mental disorder, that is more efficiently treated with validation than psychotherapy. So you can be part of the treatment by being accepting of their condition, or disregard it because of your personal values and end up hurting them. Your choice.

Have you not told your parents because you're parents are very religious? If not, I recommend talking to them about it, and struggles you deal with. Another thing is that suicide will never be a good answer for anything in life. Be happy even when you are the minority of most people as it makes you unique. I do recommend therapy, not because I think pansexuality is a disorder, but because of the suicidal tendencies and also because of this so called "abuse" you've apparently been through, feel free to PM me more about this as I've tried suicide myself, I may not relate to pansexuality, G, B, or Trans, but I can relate to suicide and abuse. As of now all I can do is give my best of luck to you and your future, stay happy dude.
