Hellooo! You can call me Clarie. I am actually a teenager and am going through lots of phases.. however, I knew when I had my first phase of “homosexuality” it struck me very hard. I was in the 4th grade and all of the sudden I just started liking girls. I told my friends if it was wrong to think a women was hot and they said “EWWW why would you even think that?” after that had happened I just told them I was kidding and went on with my regular life. The phase had gone away (it took a couple of months) and now I was just as happy as ever! Then in the 6th grade the same phase had occurred to me again.. no biggie it passed a couple months later. HOWEVER, 7th grade was the most life changing experience I could have ever had. I was at a meeting hosted by our a school to introduce new teachers and whatnot when I saw a boy who looked about my age with what appeared to be his little sister. He was so cute and seemed very nice. After that day I would occasionally see him volunteering at my school from time to time (he doesn’t attend it but his cousins do) and now back to where the “shocker” happens. I was at the after party for our school’s spring concert and I saw my friend talking to the boy I have liked for 8 months and I approach her, seeing this as an opportunity to maybe get the chance to talk with him. I was very shy and kind of flat out ignored him which made me seem quite the “lady” but anywho he was still very kind and did talk to me a little. He had left to go get some cookies with his cousin, which let me alone with my friend (goes to school with him) and I asked her “At first I was confused on whether he was a boy or girl hahaha” … she proceeded to tell me he was transgender. Nevertheless, I was shocked and sad. As a Catholic, I fear God because the capability of him sending me to Hell for loving someone of the same gender is just horrifying! I plan to stay in the closet and also I hope to pursue a relationship with “it”. I love him so much and I can’t think of a reason why God would NOT want me to be happy.
