pinnacle

Gynephilic transsexuals and transgendered people suffer from crossed wiring. This is perhaps a colloquial way of expressing it but I think it applies. What they find desireable in women crosses over into their drive to emulate them.

I have always looked at women with a dual vision. I wanted to be with them but also admired their movements, clothing and mannerisms in terms of wanting to possess them for myself. However this did not happen with people I got close to and actually dated. It's as if it was only meant to be a generalized concept to be put away when a real relationship lay ahead.

Naturally, the more interest I had in the person, the more I would endeavor to quash any transgender feelings in an effort to adopt a normal male role. This still happens today and when N and I are together, those feelings are put away in a proverbial mental drawer; ready to be accessed again in the near future.

The key difference now is that I do not repel the feelings when they return. Instead, I now celebrate them fully as part of the bigger portrait that makes up my personality. Joanna's success has made the male side happier and more confident which is a side effect I had not expected.

For a time I thought that encouragement would strengthen thoughts of transition but the opposite has actually happened; I have become self actualized instead.

Having reached a pinnacle where I no longer dread negative public reaction during my outings, has seen that reaction reduced to virtually non existant levels.

Such is the power of confidence and belief in oneself.

  1. Great post, Joanna!

    I find this line especially fascinating "Joanna's success has made the male side happier and more confident which is a side effect I had not expected"

    1. Yes I have found that by fully embracing and not hiding in tne shadows I am much happier. I am not shouting from the rooftops but I don't care if people find out either. All of my close friends and family know and no one has disowned me yet...

"Oh please its 2016!"

I have mentioned before that I have a lovely young couple living above the unit next to mine. Well the other day as I was getting in the door, she and I overlapped for the first time with me dressed as a woman.

We had a nice conversation and at some point I mentioned the obvious which was that I had told her future husband that they might see me in a different guise from time to time so they wouldn't wonder about who the strange woman was. She just looked at me almost rolling her eyes while smiling from ear to ear and said:

"Oh Please it's 2016!"

For the record she was also very complementary regarding my choice of attire.

I could care less at this point in my life what people think but it is still lovely to see the millennial generation's freedom of spirit and acceptance so lacking in previous generations. Yes they have their own foibles, as does every generation, but this area certainly isn't one of them.

the pseudoscience behind gender dysphoria

The real science as to what causes gender dysphoria still awaits.

Harry Benjamin was on to something except he didn’t have the scientific evidence to back up his suspicions hence, like a true scientist, he negated to draw conclusions. His hunch, based on treating so many patients over his lifetime, was that one is born with a predisposition to be gender dysphoric.

However, with inconclusive brain scans and no DNA marker (as of yet) we are left with believing the word of people who need help and only want to lead happy and productive lives.

The best we have been able to muster since Benjamin's death in 1986 was to amass statistics on who gets a boner imagining themselves as a woman which is in equal parts pathetic and disappointing. For this is not really science at all but is instead playing with interview data that doesn't point to anything definitive or conclusive. I have dealt with this problem at great length in my blog.

The whole thing started with Kurt Freund's obses…

looking past cross gender arousal

Jack’s latest Crossdreamers post got me thinking about cross gender arousal and how it could be avoided; also whether it even matters. This with particular focus on the inability to relate of someone on the outside looking in.

You see, sexuality is a very complicated thing to begin with and when you then add gender identity ambiguity it becomes a recipe to really confuse someone.

So imagine that you are a little boy who identifies as a girl but then along comes puberty and short circuits everything by having the sex you identify with also be the sex you are attracted to. For in essence this is what happens to all all male to female gender dysphoric trans persons who are attracted to women.

So I ask myself: can I imagine a scenario where this inherent contradiction would not produce sexual confusion? The answer is that I cannot.

I am in the unique position, like many of you, to have experienced an early identification with the feminine become sexualized later on. This brought confusion…
