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.

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…
