a literal horror show

Donald Trump is an unmitigated disaster of a person. Pompous, arrogant and mean spirited he represents the opposite of the type of statesmanship and class that a head of state is supposed to possess. Yet half of voting Americans are apparently ready to have this man as President.

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist David Cay Johnston has been following Trump’s career for decades and what he finds is even more unappealing than I first imagined. Not surprisingly, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and Trump’s father and grandfather had dubious business practices that included ties to organized crime as well as running whore houses.

When the eldest of the Trump sons declined to go into the family business it was the "The Donald" who offered to learn the trade. What he ended up becoming is not a pretty site and he has left a trail of deceit, lawsuits, vindictiveness and revenge behind him.

But if Americans want this man for a President then who am I to argue. All I can say is that as bad as Dubbya was, he is starting to look good by comparison.

  1. We in the USA are in deep trouble. Our only hope is if neither candidate gets enough electoral votes and our congress gets to elect a president. I am not sure they will do a very good job of it but at least it will not be one of the two candidates running now. Forget the third parties they are just as bad as the Donald and Hillary. God help us!

  2. I am hoping that Hillary can muster enough votes to sneak in and while she may not be the dream candidate she won't do nearly as much harm. For the record I had my fingers crossed for Bernie but the DNC derailed him.

  3. I'm deeply afraid that if Trump is elected that he will emulate Hitler. I'm encouraged that the tide is returning recently toward Hillary and believe she will prevail.

  4. As the email leaks documented it was political tricks and inside influence within the DNC that derailed Bernie.

    With Hillary we will have "leading from behind" that brought the Arab Spring. We will also get an income tax rate of over 44% at the top and the middle class tax rate ($37-91K) will be over 30%. Also try not to die because she wants a 65% inheritance tax on money that has already been taxed.

    She will grow the government at take away rights and freedoms that Americans have long enjoyed.

    Lets not forget about the buyout of the FBI and the sacrifice of the people in Benghazi.

    She was a waste as a senator and a disaster as Sec. of State.

    She will do worse than Obama, the only president to never do above 2% annual growth.

    As for her well known temper and her mean spiritedness we can only fear that the concept of heads rolling is more figurative than actual.

    While Trump may not have been on the top of the list of candidates I would have selected he is head an shoulders above the email queen who for her own selfish reasons exposed America's top secrets to its enemies and then lied and lied and lied again about it as her story evolved.

  5. Pat I admit its a bad crop this year but I would still hold my nose and vote (were I American) for Clinton over this disaster. I am hard pressed to think of a worse Republican ever running for this office.

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…
