here to stay

We have never been this visible and in spite of some of the odd birds out there making the rest of us look bad, I have never seen so much progress in so little time. Things sometimes happen like this.

Those of us over 50 who grew up during the dark ages and suffered in silence are still young enough to benefit from this renaissance. We can be ourselves for the first time in our lives and that is something money can't buy.

The old rigid binary is dead. It wasn't real but merely a forced fabrication of society that said: girls do this and boys do that. These rules varied between societies, between families and between eras. But we have finally come to realize that it's best to let people define themselves.

Those out there who know nothing of this and post about how civilisation is coming to an end never realized that we were living among them all along only quietly. We were dressing in secret and transitioning in stealth all for their benefit. Whether they like it or not we are here to stay and we have a right to dignity and respect.

I sometimes post offbeat stories here to highlight how incredibly stupid society can be. If you set your standards by its dictates you will be disappointed time and time again. I also feature wonderful role models that we can learn from and who have defined themselves in spite of obstacles placed deliberately before them.

Let this be the year where you come into your own as a transgender person and commit to living as honestly as you can all the while respecting obligations you have made to others. God made you this way so live your life respecting that nature.

You will be so glad you did.

"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…
