Rhonda states that she I has always felt girlish from the age of 4. I played with and enjoyed the company of girls, playing their card games, rope jumping, hop scotch, and “house,” with toy tea sets and dolls. I was frail and had no interest in competitive sports in school or in my neighborhood, and I was not good at any of them. Guys tended to bully and pick on me without any reason at all. I was a girl between the ears, and whenever I had the opportunity, I was myself when I put on my mother’s clothes and makeup. But, I knew I was different, so I played along with societal expectations most of the time by cross dressing as a boy. Still, I was torn between the she-me that I needed to be and the he-me that was expected of me.
I was baptized into the Christian faith at 14, largely out of societal expectations of the local church where my father took me, but also because I wanted freedom from the guilt of sin.
I later came to understand that although we all have a sinful condition, selfishness, being transgender is not part of it. Most TG’s are quite selfish for a while just for survival. But, TGs can grow, become less selfish and more in tune with the needs of others.
I now work to help other transgender people see that they are OK in the sight of God. God loves all of His/hers children regardless of color, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, or any of the other multiplicity of categories into which we might fit. The beautiful rainbow/spectrum of humanity is precious to God. He/She loves us ALL, no matter what. And, it is my personal mission to help all of us love one another like that.
