Last week we read a story that blew my mind.
Steve Crecelius, who’s a photographer from Colorado, recently went to the hospital for a kidney stone. While there, he found out that he was actually a woman. Even though Steve appeared to have male genitalia, the ultrasound indicated he also had internal female sex organs, which is known as "intersex."
Since the discovery and with the support of his wife and six kids, Steve has decided to live her life as a woman named “Stevie,” she takes hormones and has no plans to undergo gender reassignment surgery.
“It validated everything I had always felt inside,” Stevie said when she found out. “In retrospect, the diagnosis makes sense," she explains, “I remember wearing my mom’s clothes and makeup, very secretly, not telling anybody.”
“When I was 17, I was working my first part-time job at a TV station as a floor cameraman and the person in charge said to me, ‘You know, you walk like a queer,’” she added, “And I thought I was hiding who I was, and I wasn’t.”
So Steve was wired and born this way yet some people would hate him because he is now living as a woman and still married to his wife.
This is what pisses me off about extreme religionists. Their bible says that no man shall lie with another man yet God creates people with both sets of genitalia and creates people who are attracted to the same gender and yet they are the ones who are looked at as abominations.
It doesn’t seem right to me that God would tell us not to be one way in his holy book yet create people who are the opposite. Perhaps God isn’t the problem, but the people who claim they speak his word.
