  1. Yes it actually is very surprising to me! I can remember things being much more conservative when I was younger! It seem that this world is changing more so than ever now! And I have a feeling that this is only the beginning of it all! I hope and pray that we make it through these times and home to the Father ASAP!!! God bless!

  2. If you're a young transgender person or in the closet, don't listen to these misinformed jerks commenting here. You have a good future ahead, as this article proves. You are not alone and there are people who care about you :)
