I am Butch. Etched from the stone of the Dykes who came before me and paved the way.
I am the son of Earth & Fire. From the balance of ease and intensity, I was forged into flesh.
I am a paladin for equality, striving to reconnect humanity with nature.
I am the Divine Feminine. Peaceful and optimistic.
I am a visionary. Original, open and approachable, pure and trustworthy.
I am proud of who I am. Loud, powerful, confident, and sexual in nature.
I am Nature. There is beauty & goodness in me, and it is my duty to see it & trust it.
I am physically perfect just the way that I am. Society’s standards are not my standards.
I am the embodiment of harmony, grace, peace and strength.
I am love. I live to love endlessly and serve those I love and the world we’ve been given.
I am Butch.
