When I was a little girl, I liked to play with the boys. I could run as fast as they could, play backyard ball as well as they could and I even wrestled with them on occasion.
It didn't take me long to discover that boys had more advantages when it came to being allowed to go places and do things that I couldn't. At night, I would pray for God to make me a boy. It never happened.
As I matured, I lost the desire to do boy things and began to blossom in the female realm. I married and gave birth to three children, whom I love. I know the pleasure of a husband's affection.
I am happy with the gender that God gave me, even though there was a time when I wasn't. It was one of many ideas and attitudes that changed since my childhood.
God made two genders of humanity. Some people are telling us there are as many as 57 (Heinz 57?). I have no idea what they could be.
Do they think God made a mistake? Do they think God doesn't exist? Where do they think everything came from?
People who mutilate children and stuff them full of hormones to change their sexuality are committing child abuse and sexual assault. This should not be legal.
Some "woke" people and some in the media are trying to cram the idea of more than two genders down our throats. Some people will believe anything if they hear it repeated enough.
If you believe this crazy idea, I have some swampland in Florida I'd like to sell you.
