The Brief: These memes take the terms pansexual, asexual, and metrosexual literally.
No Nut November has officially reached a fever pitch, with memes taking literal interpretations of the words pansexual, asexual, and metrosexual spreading throughout Reddit. These tongue-in-cheek memes explore vital questions about human sexuality, such as “Are pansexuals hot for pans, ” “Do asexuals get turned on by the letter A?,” and “Are metrosexuals attracted to subways?”
While these memes are clearly made in jest, they are rooted in a general confusion regarding what the words actually mean. To the dismay of many Redditors, a pansexual describes somebody who is attracted to people regardless of their gender. An asexual person is one who feels little to no sexual attraction to others, and the word metrosexual describes a cultured and well-groomed straight man with a refined fashion sense.
