How can you feel like this is good to feed your child these lies of transgender lifestyle? Do not let your children read stuff like this, it is a lie from the enemy (Satan) and with the society these days they make it look innocent.
Homosexuality, transgender, queer, and lesbian lifestyles are wrong and not necessary to me and it never will, Once I almost became gay at thirteen years old but I was wrong for almost going down that path.
I struggle with my own personal troubles and sins, but this has gone way too far, the LGBTQ community is nothing but snakes in the skins of sheep and they like to poison the minds of youth in America.

It Feels Good to Be Yourself is an absolute joy to read and look at. It explains gender identity and expression in a simple way that even younger kiddos can understand. The watercolor illustrations are absolutely amazing and the character design is adorable. It's a book about letting kids be kids, no matter how they want to express themselves.
