For everyone that knows who I am knows that I love everyone no matter who they are. I am probably the most understanding person you will ever meet.
I have found myself watching the new season of the show, I Am Jazz. Which I never thought I would watch, but I do have a few friends that are transgender and I do have many friends that are in the LGBTQ community. So I wanted to see what this girl goes through and how she can be born a male but pretty much be a female.
At first I was a little werided out, I'm going to be honest, just because she still has male parts. But the more I watch the show the more I start to understand and see that this is something that kids and even adults feel like they where born the wrong gender.
I can't say that I relate to her in anyway because I have never wanted to become a male, I have always felt female and that is who I am. I feel like people do badger these adults and children because it is something we have never had to deal with before, it has always been a taboo subject. Just like when more and more gay rights started to come out in the open. It has always been taboo.
But in all honesty I have a good friend that is transgender and now identifies as a male. And I still love him the same. Nothing has changed how I feel for this man. He will forever be a good friend of mine, and as long as he is happy that's all that matters to me and that is what makes me happy.
The transgender community has been "in hiding" for years. Before anyone really knew what transgender was these people have been walking among us and no one knew. And what makes it any different now? Because they are coming out in the open, they are done hiding who they are and they want the world to accept them for who they are.
I will proudly say that I love my friends that are gay, and I love my transgender friends. I couldn't ask for better friends in my life. Some of them are my greatest friends.
I was taught as a child never to judge someone, and sometimes I catch myself judging someone. But then I realize that it isn't my place to judge anyone because I have faults of my own. I do my best to just love everyone for who they are. Because that's all I ask for in return.
Am I no where near perfect, and I am not saying I am. I just strive everyday to just love people no matter what.
I'm not asking people to support the LBGTQ community, I'm just asking for people to give someone a chance and open your heart.
I know God loves his children the same. And I know he gave us our own free will. But I feel like if you love like God loves, then there is no room for hatred in your heart.
I'm going to leave this by saying that I really do love everyone! Even if I haven't met them, I still love them. And I will never stop loving someone because of their sex or sexual orientation. I'm glad I have met the people I have, and without having a open mind and heart I wouldn't have the friends I do. I am thankful for them.
