Disexuality is somewhat similar to bisexuality but disexuals can only develop feelings for two sexes whereas bisexuals like two or more genders.
According to Urban Dictionary, the term means someone who is attracted to exclusively two sexes. The term has a Greek root Di which means two.
The term has its origins online. The word Dyosexual first appeared in December 2018. The word was coined on the LGBTA Wiki server in 2020.
There are several versions of the flag online. The current flag has no specific meaning.
Disexuals can be cisgender, transgender, non-binary, and agender people. They can use pronouns like he/him, she/her, they/them, or neopronouns.
Please never assume someone’s gender based on their orientation or expression. Share your pronouns in written and oral communication. Some people may prefer to never use pronouns and ask to use their names instead.
