Should I suppress my effeminate behavior?
Hello and thanks for taking the time to read my question,
I've searched all over the internet for this particular issue, but haven't seemed to find my particular situation addressed by any of these sites.
I am an 18 year old Catholic male who has had a strong faith in God all my life and seem to view him more as a forgiving, gentle God found in the New Testament as supposed to a wrathful, angry God found in the Old Testament. For this reason, I seem to believe that God will not put his judgement upon you with regards to your personality/natural inclinations but will do so as far as the lifestyle you choose to lead. Though my personality and mannerisms are effeminate, I believe they make me who I am, as God created me to be. In addition, I feel I should add I have never desired to be a woman and have never shown homosexual tendencies, both subjects argued to be ungodly. I do not see myself as harming anyone with my personality, and for that reason have justified that behavior in my actions. Is being effeminate a sin? Should I suppress it? Or should I embrace who I am?
