    I Will Not Back Down!

    Nobody believes that I am a wolf. I know I am because I have shifted before. I want people to stop talking behind my back and calling me names for my wolf like actions. We all are different. So if people have a problem with me, I have a problem with them. If they only accepted me...

    Hey Look, It's Me!!

    There is no way for me to not be myself. I tried for years to be who I though society wanted to be. I found that to be miserable; I've since rediscovered myself and it started when I turned 30. I'm much happier now and with a woman who accepts me for me and encourages me to...

    Why can't a person be accepted without a picture? I have seen so many comments about people not accepting you if you don't have pictures, to me that makes you pretty judgemental and not willing to learn about a person. Means you are just looking at the outside!
