But by all desc
riptions and definitions, that is exactly what I am! I'm really pissed that a label should matter, or carry such a derogatory meaning to some even in our own community. I was born this way. I am what I am. I'm not deficient in means or attitude because I am what the world perceives as different then the norm. I take no hurt or ill feeling towards those who call me one, as in their mind that is what I am, and what I do, and if they can't expand or broaden their minds, I ain't loosin' sleep over it. I so prefer that people don't stop there, and look beyond that label, ask me questions, seek to know the me that is behind the clothing. I'm not naive! I know that people are uncomfortable with my persona, this shouldn't and doesn't make me less in my mind. Yes, I'm comfortable I like me, I have purpose, I have responsibility, I have desires, I honor others, I respect peoples differences as I would want them to respect mine. It's a label that for some sells us short and it's a label for others that lifts us up. Wear your dress like you own it girls, if you don't someone's gona steal your life away from you.
