Over the past few weeks I have shared much with my wife about my cross dressing. She is more accepting of it. Now she wants to wear some of my clothing. I showed her some of my jewelry and she likes them. My wife has never prevented me from dressing but now I feel freer to be Gennee. I never hid anything from her but now I can tell about Gennee because she understands that this is a part of me.

A life lived toward helping others makes it both rewarding and worthwhile.

One of the rewards of having struggled is that we can encourage
someone else after we have successfully gone through it.

In Funk and Wagnalls standard dictionary, 'normal' is defined as conforming to or consisting of a pattern regarded as typical of a specific group. The words 'conforming piqued my interest because conformity can be a natural occurence or forced upon people. LGBTQI people know this all too well.
How many gender variant men and women have been vilified, prejudged, and even killed because they do not fit the so-called norm that society demands? What's normal is America may be something else to an indigenous tribe in South America. What the ex-gay ministries has done to countless gays and lesbians is deplorable. Lives are ruined, faith is destroyed, and many have committed suicide because of the erroneous idea that they can be made straight.
I have Native Amarican ancestry in my family genealogy and I am sure that there were gender fluidity men and women. I'm sure that my being transgender may be the fulfillment of some ancestral prophecy.
Reading the words of Jesus in Matthew 19:11-12, he echoed his understanding of eunuchs. Some are born to be eunuchs, some are made that way by man, and others choose to be eunuchs to better serve God. I have embraced my life as a transgender person and view it as a gift. I wonder if transgender people are modern day eunuchs? though there is no mention of gender variant people in scripture, a study of the societies of those times reveal that it was normal in many of the pagan nations.
Unfortunately there are those who do not accept us because we choose to be who we are. It's a shame because society can learn much from us. Jesus understand that. Wouldn't if be nice if people actually do. It will be a benefit to them and society as a whole.

Every Friday I post some words of wisdom in 'Genevieve's Gems'. I have never shared how this came about and will attempt to do so. Shortly before I accepted my transvestism, I read much about cross dressing and transgender. I started this blog because I needed to record my inner struggles and thoughts.
When I came out to myself as TG/TV, my whole life changed. My eyes were opened up to a new world. I read postings from other cross dressers. Many were enjoying their femininty but others were struggling with shame and guilt. They were told that what they were doing was sinful, wrong, perverted, disgusting, etc. I wanted to encourage my fellow cross dressers so I started the weekly posting. It's not only for cross dressers and transgender folks but for every body in the LGBT community. We need all the encouragement we can get because society for the most part won't.
I go by the name of Gennee or Genevieve. I created the former because there were other ladies named Genevieve on the forum that I subscribed to. When I attend meetings at the community center I'm known as Gennee. I dress up for most of them because I enjoy who I am and hopefully will encouraged others. I thought that encouraging words would be a pearl to others and that's how I came up with 'gems'.
I hope that 'Genevieve's Gems' will encourage and strengthened you. We have the right to be who we are. I am not going to let anyone tell me who or who not to be and neither should you. Be happy with who you are, be proud, and stay strong.

I would rather encourage a hurting soul than be honored for some great deed.

Gender fluidity is accepted in many cultures. I have Native American ancestry in my genealogy. Cross dressing, gender fluidity, and transgenderism is a part of many Native American tribes. It is also common in tribes in Africa, Asia, and South America. It was evident in biblical times where eunuchs were eventually included in the assembly of God.
I am comfortable with my transgender identity. It isn't someone that I chose but it is something that was inside of me. When it became evident to me that I was transgender, I embraced it. Many GLBTQI folks knew that they were different as children. There is no crime in being different.
Jesus acknowledged that some people were born to be eunuchs while others were made that way by man or chose to be eunuchs (Matt. 19:11-12). Jesus also mentioned to there are some who could not accept this. Those who try to make someone into what they are not does much harm and damage to the people (see ex-gay ministries).
Contrary to what some religious institutions might think, there were LGBTQI people throughout the bible. They may not be identified but I firmly believe that we were plentiful in the early Christian church. We were loved by God and accepted as we were. Today, God still loves and accepts us. We are everywhere and making our mark in spite of great odds against us.

This blog is in response to Friday's 'Genevieve's Gems'. The word 'normal' in Funk and Wagnalls' standard dictionary is defined as ' comforming to or consisting of a pattern regarded as typical of a specific group. Conforming piqued my interest because conforming can come naturally or be forced upon its subjects. This is done when stronger cultures take over other cultures. The slave trade, the Inqusition, homophobia and transphobia are examples of this.
There are countless LGBTQI men and women who are harrassed, vilified, and even killed because they do not conform to the gender binary construct of what male and female are supposed to be. What things ought to be and what they actually are is two different matters....

What is normal to one person may not be to another person.
