the working man's Trump card

Jimmy Dore, whose show I sometimes watch, is just as concerned as I am about the increasing income gap between rich and poor.

Here he makes some very interesting points and calls the problem perfectly. The dissatisfaction with the political elite has helped create Donald Trump and Jimmy thinks that the next version will be improved, easier to elect and might not be such a buffoon.

People wondered how in spite of making mistake after mistake Trump still managed to maintain the attention of the working poor. Yes the disenfranchised who don't see Hillary Clinton as an answer to their problems because she represents more of the same. Note how I am not saying that Trump is the answer but that clearly the electorate is unhappy with the status quo and perhaps for good reason.

America has the largest income gap between rich and poor among the world's top 20 industrialised nations and eventually its going to bite them in the rear.

Please watch...

  1. I agree that the income and wealth disparity is huge and unsupportable, and like climate change could be the fire under the US's kettle of frogs that kills ours and the global economy and security. I have already voted for Hillary and it seems inevitable (thankfully) that Trump will fail, and I dearly hope that Hillary and all will recognize and address this growing problem.

"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…
