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.

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…

understanding the erotic component

I have written about crossed wires before in two separate posts. The idea is that one cannot pass through puberty and the development of sexual feelings for females and not have your pre-existing gender dysphoria be impacted through your psychosexual development. The hormone responsible for your libido is testosterone which is present in much stronger concentration in males and is why gynephilics are most likely to experience erotic overtones as the conflict between romantic external feelings and their pull towards the feminine become permanently intertwined.

Because I came from a deeply religious family where sex was not discussed much at all, I grew up with little access to information and was very much ignorant of matters relating to the subject. With no firsthand experience in intercourse until I married I was then faced with the reality that my ability to perform sexually had been deeply impacted by my dysphoric feelings. This began years of turmoil and self-deprecating thoughts …

a blending

An interesting thing is happening to me: as I have fully embraced being transgender my male and female anima are becoming blended. The female side is no longer an unwelcome appendage which, as a result, has allowed me to craft a more genuine and happier male image.

I dress when I want to and sometimes I cut outings shorter than before. I am my own master in this regard and feel in control.

Don't get me wrong in that the dysphoria is not going away and is sometimes like a wild stallion that threatens to jump the fence but I have learnt to understand it’s demands after all these years hence a transition for me is definitely not in the cards. At this point I am not even foreseeing a social one.

The two sides are no longer in conflict and they are now intertwined to create a fusion that is unique to me. That answer finally came when I reached a full level of self assurance about who I am and learned to embrace that I am trans and yes, that includes my dysphoria's erotic undertones…
