Perfectly Me

 

All my life I have been called freak, been asked if I was a boy or a girl, been called stupid, mentally retarded, ugly, that I should have been aborted. I have been called every mean name in the book. Behind my back and to my face. Even online. But no matter what they say, no matter what they do. They will never break me down. Yes, it hurts. But I will move on, grow stronger every day that I live.

I may have a female body, but that does not define me as a woman. I am not a girl, I am a boy, a man. I am male completely inside and out. I was made, while others were born.

I am a boy. Perfectly me.

Film Friday

This week something a little more fun and light hearted.

Simon’s Cat in “The box”

I know, this has nothing to do with anything serious, but videos like this are a great way to laugh at the little things in life. Humor is often the best medicine and can even help you live longer. Nuff said.
