In Support Of: LGBT Pride Month

I'm not much for nail art - in fact, I pretty much fail at that in general. So I have some rainbow nails to show you today, really simple. We'll get to that in a minute.
First, I'd like to tell you all a story. I guess if you're not interested, you can skip this part, but I'd hope you'd read on with me.
Once upon a time, there was a small child. This child had a grandmother who worked in a big department store and she had a friend of hers that was a little different from everyone. This friend went away overseas for a while, and when she came back, she had a gender change. She went from male to female. The grandmother went home and told this child about her friend. The child was curious, and asked the grandmother if it were ever possible for a girl to become a boy. The child was seven years old. The grandmother then told this girl never to ask that question again - not because she was being mean, but because she was afraid for the child. And she didn't know how to deal with that question.
Fast forward to present time, and now this man has been persecuted and mocked his entire life because he was BORN IN THE WRONG BODY. Called names for something even as a child he didn't know how to control, he just knew he was wrong.
This man is the kindest, most giving and loving person I've ever met.
I find such treatment abusive and downright appalling.
Needless to say, I support civil rights for ALL United States citizens. I don't care who you are - you deserve the same rights as every citizen enjoys in this country. You deserve to be loved, no matter who you are, or how you were born. I hope that one day, I will see acceptance in this country.
Now, here are my rainbow nails. I wish I could have included a purple, but I just didn't have enough fingers - or talent to do stripes.  So I used red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.


My cuticles are a little dry. I've been lotioning the hell out of them, though.
As to my story and my beliefs - I know that not everyone will agree with me, but I do ask that you respect my opinion and my right to state it. I wish you peace.
