I'm a transgender person and I was faced with the choice of how this who affect my family and faith. When I admited to myself that I am a crossdresser and transgender all the tensions and fears dissipated. God embraced me letting me know that I am His child.
Being transgender is inborn. So is being gay. It's part of who you are. No one should force you to choose because they do not have your best interests at heart. I accepted Christ into my heart because I was a sinner, not because I was transgender. If you have done this praise God!
Squirt, I'm so happy that you are desiring to be who you are. I will be praying for you.
