This is an issue we have to deal with. This is not an issue that people have to die over.
For me, I've always known who I am.
I've never looked in the miror an felt uncomfortable or unsure.
I'm a strong, independent, blonde haired, green eyed woman who loves her family.
I've never had to define my sexuality or gender. If I had to, luckily, I have the best family support in the world who would love me regardless.
It's easy to get caught up in the hype, the tabloids, the coverage. You forget that Caitlyn Jenner is an American hero, an athlete, a child, a father.
You see the transformation without seeing the realization.
She is finally, after 60 plus years, who she always was.
Imagine a Freaky Friday happened when you were born, and you spent your whole life opposite who you weren't in the mirror. Then add the pressure of being an athlete, a husband, a father, a reality figure, and a gender icon.
Then turn it left.
I don't know if I would have the strength, but I thank god for all the people out there, and all the future people out there, that someone did.
That someone is Caitlyn Jenner. Making the world a better place.
P.S. There are certain people in my world who have opened my eyes wider recently, and just a reminder, I love you unconditionally. Always.
