Friday, October 19th, 2012 is Spirit Day, and I am participating by changing my ID deviation to something more...purple!
Every day should be a day where you feel comfortable in your own skin. I wholly support this day. Last year, there was a bit of mess about how it wasn't right to condone people who were gay, bixsexual, lesbian or trans-gender. I was shocked, but mostly I was annoyed. I was annoyed because it still had the power to make me feel like I was doing something wrong by being bisexual - it took years of time inside my head to figure myself out. And when I did I was happy to understand who I was, who I was BORN as. My ability to shrug off the commentary is unfortunately not something that everybody has. Nobody should ever have to question themselves, nobody should EVER have to feel they need to hide themselves, and nobody should ever have to struggle with the feeling of being abnormal. You should never have to feel like you need to wear a mask, not to yourself, not to your family, not to the public - Because you're you - whoever you are.
You are a perfect person just the way you are - straight, gay, bisexual, trans-gender, lesbian, poodle or puddle of rain water, you are BEAUTIFUL.
