    I am what i am. If you dont like

    who I am, go find someone else to talk to. I have been as I am for a long time. I have had relationships where women have told me i need to change for them. I am done changing for others. I like me just as I am

    I don't cause others to feel I have interfered

    in the life in what I do, & don't like others to do it in my life. If that's you , that's cool, it might be me too, if not I'm not going to diss what it is that you do. But don't diss me on my sexuality, & desires. One day I might go where you were but I wasn't at the scene then...

    I don't apologise for

    who I am, because I believe it's one of the quickest ways to find the right people to fit into your life and to find the ones who really love you.

    Being gay is not a sin.

    If you think God made me who I am then God made me gay and that's who I am and I am not changing that because of what a 2000 year old book says. The bible does not dictate our rules for modern society

    I refuse to continue apologizing for who I am.  I have been apologizing and feeling ashamed of the way I look since elementary school.  And now that I'm in my 30's, I don't give a ****.  If you don't like me because I don't look like the "girls" (note...

    You Can't Please Everyone ;p

     I see no reason to apologize for being me. You either accept me or you don't. For people who dislike me and my ways, oh well! I'm not living for you and I really could care less about validation. Nobody should ever apologize for being themselves. Be who you are at all times...

    Why Should I

    Reality is that there will always be people who agree and disagree with who I am.  I would make myself crazy trying to appease them all.  And who are they.  Maybe they're nuts (for lack of a better word).  And they don't even know the full story anyways...

    I live my life by several cardinal rules. One of them is this: Don't change who you are to appease those around you. In other words, you can't always make everybody happy. Its just not possible.  Not only that, but you'll end up making yourself unhappy because a) You're not...

    Totally true. My beliefs are considered crazy &

    radical. I'm too honest for most. My style of dress is too formal for many. But other than trying to feel people out to see what they're open to hearing, I usually stick my foot in my mouth the first time we meet. :(

    I definitely don't make any apologies

    for anything. The main thing is, I stay focused and very narrow in my views. This way, I can deny anything that comes along.
