A difficulty some are having is male/female energy shifting.
Many males are discovering a gentler side of themselves, and this seems to be in conflict with social engineering. Contrary: this is exactly the desired outcome.
Those males struggling with this transformation are assured that integrating female energy is not only acceptable, you won't get far until you do. The male role has been changing for quite some time, as we take on a new purpose. To balance out the Earth's heavy-sided duality, female energies are assuming their equal and appropriate areas. Neanderthals hate this transformation, because it seems to indicate some loss of control over the world.
Note to Neanderthals: look what your leadership has gotten us. "Ascension" means "you're fired!".
While being gay and/or transgendered is a step in that direction, it is not necessarily the right direction...but many need that transition for their own personal experience, and to contend with their own feelings/energies as they ascend.
