So, I have no idea if this like a confession or what. But basically I have something on my mind I would like to talk about. Please bear with me if I don’t get all the gender stuff right, this is new to me, I don’t mean any disrespect or anything but I am still learning. I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read this.
So I am a soldier in the British Army. My Section used to be run by an officer called Helen. Helen was a great boss. The way us grunts judge those in charge of us is the lengths that they go to look out for us at the expense of their own careers. Helen, would always have out back’s no matter what. Taking ownership of our failures and giving us credit for her wins. One Monday, Helen came in to work and announced that HE was transgender and wanted to me known as Harry. TBH I didn’t really understand any Gender Identity stuff. I don’t mean to be a dick but I was raised in a very conservative family. The only exposure I had to transgender issues was the media, which often portrayed transgender people as ‘snowflakes’ etc. Don’t mean to be a bigot but that was how it was. Not sure if this is tasteless but it must of taken balls for him to announce his transition in front of a group of soldiers.
The point is Harry is a great fucking bloke. I don’t think I will ever understand his situation but i don’t think it matters. And the end of the day he was the guy who had my back when I needed it. I wish him all the best and we don’t give a fuck what any wankers say cos he is our boy. So yeah,
Harry if you end up reading this, we got you bro.
Anyways peace and Love
