I must tell you about a message I received on my blog here from a new reader.
I do not know whether it is from a male or female person, which I will explain below.
The person, whom I will call Andrea in order to preserve privacy, has expressed an interest in my work in photography and has said they have read my posts with huge interest since I started the blog many many years ago.
Thank you very much for your following!
The person also asked what my stand on gender issues is, something which I have not discussed on here, mainly because nobody, until now, has asked.
We all realise that gender boundaries have changed drastically over the years.
What was considered relatively taboo, shall we say, has become accepted.
By that I mean gay, lesbian, transgender, gender fluid stances, as well as quite a few new ones that I never knew existed….that of course, I fully apologise for as it is obviously my own ignorance.
I need to post more notes on this hugely important subject at a later date, but for now, I will say that I am accepting of all genders, whether that is gay, lesbian, transgender and all others I have yet to learn about.
So, to any and all of my readers, new or old, I will say, welcome all…you have a friend here!
I have never prejudged anyone, regardless of who it may be, so consider me as a friend who will listen and offer a shoulder if you are in need.
There…I feel better now and I am sure Andrea does, too…..he/she has told me he was born a male but has always felt feminine inside, and so he dresses as a female at home but has not yet had the courage to to so openly. Good luck to you, Andrea!
Thank you for reading and I think this post will elicit a lot of comments! Fire away!
