    I'm not what you would describe

    as a masculine man and I'm a little in touch with my feminine side but it annoys me so much when people assume I'm gay because of it. I don't even act feminine that much. Its just because I smile a lot, talk with my hands and I'm a "nice, happy-go-lucky" guy. Yes I like Disney...

    I didn't choose to be a lesbian.

    I was born like this and I am not ashamed of it. You don't like me? I don't care. I wasn't born to impress you.

    When everyone was trying to control my life,

    I didn't say anything & whenever I tried, I was ignored. Now when I finally stood up for myself, they are trying to suppress me! I won't give up no matter what it takes...! No matter how much I am troubled or suppressed, I will raise my voice and will never ever allow anyone to...

    Strange...but I Don't Care!!

    I had always gone through life thinking that other people were somehow better than me - that their opinions were more worthy of attention, that their beliefs were somehow better - even that they were more deserving than i was...more deserving of friendship, of happiness, of...

    I Am A Real Man!

    Nope.

    I'll only apologize for what I did wrong not for who I am. Two completely different things. I know I'm a terrible excuse for a human. I know I can't do anything right. I know I can't live up to anybody's expectation. I know I haven't been the best person. I know I haven't done...

    I am me. And I like me.

    I'm not saying I've settled at 'this is all I am' or 'this is as good as it gets'; I hope to learn more, accomplish more, become more. But who I am makes me happy, and any 'more' that I ever become will be built upon who I already am. I'm not perfect, but I'm perfectly me...

    No I Will Not

    I will never apologize for the person that I am. The sarcastic, witty, opinionated intelligent , and passionate (about life) person that I am is something I am VERY proud of. And I will never change that unless I want to. Like me or hate me, I am who I am.

    I've always been quirky

    and funny in a different way. Sometimes I'd feel like such an outsider but sometimes people would really enjoy how crazy I am. I have a different outlook, am super sarcastic, and love to be creative. The older I get the more I appreciate my differences.

    I cannot apologize or feel sorry

    for how I think, for how I feel. We cannot help but be as we were raised to be. I cannot stomach an act of cruelty without feeling queezy, I cannot help but try to rebel any who thinks themself my master. My will is that of mountains, unmovable, yet my whim is that of leaves...

    Alot of people are saying,

    "if you don't like me for who I am, then you need to leave". Sometimes it is not possible to just leave, like in a work environment. And so I still do not think that " being who you are" is an excuse to say/do whatever you feel like doing. I mean sure, you have the right to do...
