1. I think that it used to be more male lead and it's now flipped, I'm often seeing female POVs and actually some times I wish there were a few more males ones (i am also a very picky writer so it could just be the stories which intrigue me just happen to have female leads 😛 )
2. As for my own writing, I go everywhere. I think I write female the most, then male, and I've only written 2 agender characters, one of which was a POV character. As for my identity, I don't think it changes what I write because we are the same 😛
Also your initial post was respectful and definitely don't need to worry. And as I mentioned on discord ask away 🙂 learning is important
I don't wanna derail, but at the same time I feel like I need to talk about this
I'm not sure where to even start with this tbh, because for one there are more than two genders, so if you relate more to one that isn't linked to a sex how does that save you trouble? And that's a bit like saying to a gay man "oh well you aren't in a relationship right now so why not save yourself the trouble and just say you are straight". This quote is a good quote;
And nobody ever chooses the difficult path for shits and giggles. Do you really think it's fun having your existence questioned? Over and over by hundreds of people. Who sometimes add little kisses to the ends of their posts as to seem like they aren't stabbing you in the back when really really when you look at the words it's all plain and clear. I mean I could just save myself the trouble and play the cisgendered little straight girl but I'd just hate myself even more.
Now for the bi and pan thing, they do sound similar for a reason. They are similar. Bisexual people are attracted to two types, whereas pansexual are attracted to all. So the most stereotypical is that bisexual people are attracted to male and female. It can actually be male and non-binary, or any sort of combination like that too. And then some people who are actually pansexual call themselves bisexual because there is a lot of panphobia with people either not believing them, or joking that it means they are attracted to pans. It's easier to say bisexual to the average person and doing so hurts, but doing either will hurt if not careful.
Essentially in a nutshell. Except for genderfluid people who sometimes feel like they fit in the female category one time, then male another, and sometimes neither. It can get complicated and hard to understand especially when you ask yourself, what is male and what is female? How do you feel female?

Sorry for the long post. But I just needed to 🙂 and my inbox/discord is always open for questions.
