an interesting post...

Here is an entry from Natalie Reed's blog that I quite enjoyed and agreed with. I simply attach a link....

Very well said Natalie.

  1. Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.

    "So when you have certain models or structures within that culture that offer some semblance of conditional external validation (no matter how absurdly high that bar has been set), people are going to build their sense of worth upon how close they get to meeting those conditions."

    Sounds like crossdreaming to me.

  2. This is what I love about you AQV - you will point me to websites like natalie's blog (I will gladly find which post if you desire) and when that same person posts something you disagree with then suddenly its all the bad bogeyman transgender agenda,

    You are very rapidly losing alk credibility with me and am understanding more and more why jack molay has banned you from posting on his site.

    Your HBS exceptionalism one trick pony show is getting really tiresome and very predictable.

    Natalie is simply preaching inclusiveness instead of the usual poisonnous infighting among trans people. But of course HBS transsexuals can't have that and they must start battles because in order to feel more secure that they are truly women they must put us poor transfolk down.

    Your credibility is now in need of repair.

  3. The ideas behind crossdreaming and AGP theory have been discredited for me. Until I see better science I won't attach myself to any theory. Gender disphoria is a very real thing and how I deal with mine is my main concern.

how times change

How times have changed.

Whereas transition was something not to even contemplate for us, here is a young trans person who felt the opposite pressure. She looks and sounds extremely passable but decided it wasn't for her despite the social media presence of young transitioners potentially inspiring her to.

We are all different and I happen to think she's rather a smart cookie as well...


my last post

This will be my last post.

When I wrote recently that this blog had another seven years of life in it I was trying to convince myself that it was true. It was in fact a little bit of self delusion.

With almost 3,000 posts to date I have accomplished what I set out to do which was to heal myself and in the process share some of the struggle I had been through with others on the chance they might find some value in my words. After seven years of writing, my life still isn't perfect; no one's is. But I have discovered a path forward completely free of the trappings which society would have had me adopt so I could fit in.

Over the last 25 years of my life I have turned over every stone I could find while exploring this topic and in the process realized that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of this deeply complex subject. What I have ultimately learned is that my instincts have more value than what someone who isn't gender dysphoric writes about me. We are very …

feeling sexy

Here are the results of a recent survey of genetic women:

“A new hairdo, walking in heels and a glowing tan are among the things that make a woman feel sexy. Freshly applied lipstick, newly-shaved legs and a little black dress also have a positive effect on the psyche”

Are you surprised? I’m not because it is exactly the same list that makes transgender women feel sexy.

For a long time the idea was pandered about that transsexualism was rooted exclusively in aberrant sexuality. But of course you cannot separate the sexuality from the individual because that forms part of their overall makeup and the fact that genetic and transsexual women overlap here surprises no one.

We should also add here that women aren't always thinking about sex and neither are transgender women.

Pre transition transsexuals would not readily admit they found these things sexy because they were afraid to be seen as perverted men in front of gatekeepers who understood nothing about their condition.

Today we kn…
