I forget, and therefore, quite often, make no attempts to hide my true identity most of the time as a result. Why should I anyway, they can deal with it. I deal with hetrosexism, homophobia, gender stereo typing, and other forms of bigotry and intolerance of others everyday in my work and in my everyday life.

I know I push buttons and I make no apology when it makes people think....

what I think is hot and makes me hummmmm is all that matters and all that others should be happy about for me.

If they look at me with a stunned face, most of the time I like to think that
Im a bit the same. I am who I am and If they dont like it. Bully for them. I wont change who I am for no one but myself. Im happy with who I am. I am happy with "what" I am. Isnt that what matters the most?

Now I see it everyday
And I know that I am
I am, I am
