    As I Am

    I like who I am. I don't want people who say they re my friends, telling me how to CHANGE. Trying to improve me. If I want to change, I'll go take some kind of course. I don't try to tell my friends how to be different. If I want different, I'll find a different friend.

    I have friends in real life, but most of them don't understand my orientation. I just wish I would have some non Acephobic or transphobic friends irl or online.
