More fun and games

You might remember Will Franken.

He is the US comedian who spent seven months living in female mode during which he renamed himself Sarah. As an unapologetic conservative he now gets to appear in the pages of the Federalist so he can take potshots at the Liberal transgender agenda.

I wrote about Mr. Franken a number of posts back and noted how easily some people decide to put on a dress and call themselves a woman. It turned out that Mr. Franken was at best a hobbyist crossdresser who was bored and wanted to try something different. My doubts then about Will Franken being transgender are now clearly confirmed and as you read the article you will find the same pattern as when they trot out Walt Heyer to do his obligatory turn at “what was I thinking!”

The Federalist like other sites of the same ilk has predetermined ideas and will find anyone who even resembles a transgender person to them so they can show the world the insanity of it all. Their latest incarnation is newly recanted “transgender woman” Will Franken. At this point I am not certain that Mr. Franken's short lived stint as a woman wasn't a publicity stunt.

People who have had to take the agonizing decision to fully transition are not respected by these sort of ploys but it plays well to those who want to make light of it all.

The title of the article is oddly and misleadingly titled “What my life as a transgender woman taught me about Progressives”

The mind boggles.

prejudice disguised as objective rectitude

So here is Professor Jordan Peterson perhaps justly calling out the excesses of political correctness gone mad. But then he extends it to not indulging transgender people the basic dignity of being addressed in their preferred pronoun. To do so for him would cost nothing and to stand on literal principle seems to serve little use other than to send a message of disdain.

If you have transitioned or even live as the opposite gender is costs me nothing to address you in your preferred pronouns. What difference does it make to me and what am I trying to tell you when I don't?

Peterson wants to stand on his rights to call reality what it is except that in this case the exact objective escapes me. But of course the right wing Federalist is in love with him because he calls a spade a spade.

If I see a rock I can call it that but then the rock doesn’t have any feelings. To address a transgender woman "her" and "she" is not undermining my rights as a person in any way b…

"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.

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…
