A friend of mine recently surprised me with the news that he was what’s known as trans-gender. I don’t know if he exactly considers himself a woman in a man’s body, but it’s in that neighborhood. At the very least he is a male with rather strong female sensibilities. If you were to meet him, unless you were especially sensitive to such things (which I am not), I’m pretty sure you’d consider him just a regular guy, though smart, insightful, visionary even, and kind. At least that’s how I think of him, in addition to being one of the strongest leaders I know. Anyway, I shared this news with my bride, who smiled at me and said, “A man after your own heart. Who the heck knows what you are?”
I considered it a lovely compliment.
