After a great deal of soul-searching, I have come to a realization that I would like to share with you, gentle readers. As I understand it, some people identify as being something other than what they were born as or how they appear on the outside. Well, I may seem like a girl on the outside, and the “traditional” view may categorize me as human, but I now know that I identify as a unicorn.
That’s right. I am a legendary being who is fierce and proud, even when no one believes in me. Even though you can’t see my horn, I am still powerful and beautiful, and I won’t be tamed. While I can’t say I’m especially attracted to virgins, I am most definitely the living embodiment of magic and grace. I am a unicorn.
I’ll tell you what else: I don’t think I’m the only one out there. I think many people may identify as unicorns and either suppress it or hide their true selves for fear of suffering scorn and ridicule. I hope my fellow unicorns will find the courage to come forward and say, “I, too, am strong and proud. I, too, am beautiful and magical. I, too, am a unicorn.”
