what if there is a misfire

When you strip away the personal agendas, misinformation on the web and invented pseudoscience we must admit we know very little about gender dysphoria. Its wrapped in mystery and despite our best efforts to uncover its origins we have come to a series of dead ends each time.

All brains start off female and are then injected (for males) at the appropriate time with an androgen cocktail that is supposed to turn that fetus into a boy. Conversely, girls do not receive this same injection. But what if this does happen incorrectly in timing and/or in dosage and does not leave the evidence after the fact.

This misfire might be relatively rare but happen enough times to affect a sliver of all babies born.

We have other birth defects. There is Down Syndrome, physical abnormalities of every type, intersex conditions and so on. We also have seen fetuses being exposed to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) as well as to the estrogen infused pregnancy drug DES. It would hardly be far fetched to theorize that some babies were born with a dual gendered or gender reversed brain.

There are also estrogen tinged compounds that end up in our lakes and rivers and are skewing the birth rate towards female babies.

Should we be surprised then that we end up with transgender individuals? I am betting on this theory being correct and if so why can't people correct this disconnect through modern means?

I know I use the argument often here about less being more. Don't jump the gun to transition before you understand yourself. But once having gotten there with a mature mind and a wealth of experience behind you, who is to say you are wrong to do so.

We put dogmatically immovable constraints behind the meaning of man and woman when really the differences are less than our similarities.

another coming out

Recently I had lunch with one of the young estimators who occasionally works with me here in Toronto. We were chatting about work and our respective lives when she queried about my love life:

“So how is it going on that front. Meet anyone interesting lately?”

I reflected for a moment and then said:

“My situation is a little particular and if you don’t mind I can share something about myself”

She leaned in a bit and told me to please go ahead.

“I am trans” I said matter of factly.

She looked at me and smiled and said:

“Really? That’s so neat”

She is 35 years old and a lovely person which is why I knew I could confide in her. I then added that I had been reflecting on whether I would switch companies and begin working as Joanna and although she is totally open she also knows how conservative our business can be. So I told her that if I did decide to it would definitely be under a different umbrella.

Then yesterday I was coming back to my place and the lady who rents it to me, who is abo…

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…

Being transgender isn't exclusively a problem of aberrant sexuality

If being transgender were exclusively a problem of aberrant sexuality, then I would seem to be an exception to the rule.

To date I have lived my life like a choir boy and have had low libido throughout. I have yet to ever see a porn film and both my ex-wife and ex-girlfriend complained about my lack of sex drive. I also knew I was different from a very young age.

This is why the accusation that male to female transgender persons attracted to women are perverts doesn’t hold much water with me. I was mortified when I hit puberty and realized that my desire to be female had taken on sexual overtones and I ended up, like most of you, repeatedly throwing things in the bin as a repudiation. In fact, accepting that my sexuality has been permanently impacted was the hardest pill to swallow in my journey to become a fully realized transgender person.

That is why I say to those who are still concerned about what outsiders who haven’t lived your personal experience have to say about you should l…
