Let me start with a heartfelt apology. In no way was this post meant to offend you or anyone else for that matter. In deference to your feelings I will remove it immediately. Your feedback is vital to us. Your voice does matter and your point-of-view is needed so that all of us in the LGBT+ community can learn from your insights and experience. In truth, there is so much we don’t know or understand about each other. But our genuine ambition is to promote awareness and to encourage empathy for each other – to develop a virtual place where we can heal from our wounds. It is clear by now that each and every one of us has a story to tell…It stands to reason that pain and suffering is relative but ours is real.
What I know for sure is that psychologists and physicians still agree to disagree on what GID is and how it should be dealt with and/or treated. So, I could make an attempt to explain or defend my post by answering your questions. I could spar with you intellectually and endlessly debate our differences until we reach an impasse. Instead I would rather reflect on your words, your feelings, and your point-of-view. I will listen. I will consider.
The LGBT+ community faces so many challenges from within and without…and we are not the enemy. The journey towards self-realization and self-actualization is one that we may choose to postpone – but none of us can afford to refuse. In order to create a better world it starts with us.
In the spirit of true community may we suggest that you check out our vlog’s on code…decoded / youtube– there you will find out more about code decoded and what our dream is all about.
