Can someone explain to me the difference between Pansexual and Polysexual?
Also, the difference among Genderfluid, Genderflux, and Genderqueer?
Just an open-minded, cis hetero (arguably demisexual – that’s still up for debate) woman trying to get this right!
Genderflux people fluctuate from agender, to demigender, to a gender. For example, a genderflux person could feel agender (lacking a gender) one day, the next feel like a demiboy (somewhere in between agender and a boy), and then the next day feel 100% like a boy. However, their gender does not fluctuate to feeling feminine, for example.
People who identity as genderfluid’s gender can change to anything. One day they can be masculine, one day feminine, one day in their middle and another day nothing at all.
There are various definitions out there of genderqueer, but the main three are

Not being out doesn’t make you any less valid!
Only come out if you want to!
Whether it is one of the first times you come out, or if you’re mostly out, you are not obligated to come out to anyone!
Not telling people about your gender/sexuality doesn’t make you a bad person!
You are still valid!
Even if they don’t accept you, I will.
If your parents, family, siblings, etc., don’t accept you for who you are, I will.
If your community doesn’t respect you, I will.
If the world doesn’t think of you as a valid person, I do.
