I hope readers will gain a clear understanding of the roots and cause of homosexuality and gender identity, and with that knowledge, they can be more accepting and respectful of others' differences.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 29, 2016
One Soul/One Mind: A Study in Homosexuality and Gender Identity (Brown Books Publishing Group) is a lesson from the heart told through the author’s own experiences and her honest, unfiltered progression of emotions regarding her daughter’s gender differences. Debut author G.M. Walser is neither a biologist nor a scholar, but an intelligent, nurturing mother with an inquisitive nature and determination to search for answers to burning questions about homosexuality and gender identity, with the hope of promoting respect, acceptance, understanding and compassion for LGBTQ children and adults.
Walser, a conservative woman, devout Christian born in Ecuador, and American citizen for many years, first noticed her second daughter’s tomboyish behavior at age three. These initial observations set her on a determined path to understand gender identity differences—why and how they occur—and ultimately, lead her to acceptance.
“It was a challenge, at my age—and being a Christian woman—to have to talk about homosexuality and gender identity. My acceptance of my daughter’s homosexuality was a long process,” says Walser.
She long suspected that her daughter’s sense of self was somehow affected by her strong desire to bear a boy during the pregnancy, but she had no evidence to back up her theory. After 26 years of interviews with mothers of LGBTQ children and intense study of doctors, scientists and established authors, it is something she now feels able to explain—a story waiting to be told.
While Walser hopes someone in the scientific community will take notice, she has already reaped the true reward of all her efforts. “It changed my life for the better with all the peace and happiness that has come to me in truly knowing my daughter and who she is.”
“My pregnancy had been an undoubted success in producing a truly beautiful and gifted human being,” says Walser. “What was evil and upsetting about it was coming from other people—ignorant people, misinformed people . . . and if I were to be completely honest with myself, I had to acknowledge that I used to be one of them.”
A member of the Silent Generation, Walser has witnessed the evolution of homosexuality from being taboo to achieving marriage equality, and is able to bridge the gap—and in the process makes a profound discovery which brings understanding and compassion to a topic that can be confusing and controversial. “I hope readers will gain a clear understanding of the roots and cause of homosexuality and gender identity, and with that knowledge, they can be more accepting and respectful of others' differences.”
