It was Monday June 1, 2015 that the landscape changed forever as if the entire planet was slammed by Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, as we were introduced to Caitlyn Jenner in all her cover girl beauty and glory.

Excusing my flaws under the blanket of gender identity was easier than wrestling with them. I threw in the towel, and, over time, the resignation in my heart aged into acceptance.

I've learned over time and with experience that there are times to educate and times when it's best to be the trans ninja. I sometimes take a step back and evaluate how people will best receive and be open to listening to me.

I don't know how or why Caitlyn Jenner found her way to the name we now share, but I am proud as hell to share it with her. For me, my name has always given me strength and pride, but now it can do that for so many others thanks to Jenner.
