    I Am Who I Am Because God Is Great!!!

    I accept myself for who and what I am, because I know I am delightfully and wonderfully made. I am also bi-sexual with a great husband 6 kids ( one sort of adopted), and have a girlfriend. I have heard all the tired excuses of going to hell, over a one liner in the bible. I also...

    Who I am, I cannot change.

    I accept that. Who I will become, I can help create. That I can be better is a truism that I am responsible for.

    As of now I'm a heterosexual semi-submissive

    female-to-male transvestite, and I'm proud I've started discovering myself finally. I'm so happy i can now think beyond what I've been taught: that girls dress like girls and love boys, and boys dress like boys and love girls, and we don't talk about sex.
