On My Honor As a Bisexual Transsexual Life Boy Scout

Boy Scout Oath:

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

As a youth I honored my promises most of the time, I am human after all. But like Jennifer Tyrrell, the Ohio Mom who was booted from Scouts for being a lesbian the Scouts obviously don’t think so.

Which law or promise am I not adhering to? My guess is the Scouts think I’m not straight after all I keep myself physically strong and stay mentally awake, there’s just too many pitfalls not to, but morally straight?

That was the one that used to cause me so much internalized dysfunction antagonizing over often I would become less than aware of my circumstances. And with all the internal struggle over my morality I would oven forgo exercising both my body and consciousness letting my morals degenerate untill eventually I ended up in a drug induced downward spiral for a century until….

I started regaining my senses and recovering my life, doing good deeds without reward, making a effort to become closer to my creator, exercising my mind and regaining my moral fiber until one day I had a epiphany!

IT’s OK to Be a bisexual transgender woman! Its Ok to welcome your femininity! In fact, there is everything right about making the transition. It is the process that has made me morally straight.

But sadly the fellow scouts who I encounter are shocked to hear a woman recounting those happy days fishing, canoeing, and yes sharing tents with other boy scouts.

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight, Bisexual Transsexual Life Scout.
