your personal tipping point

The existence of transgender people should be predictable with 100% certainty even if one had never met such an individual.

This assertion is based entirely on a logical extension of seeing the way nature operates as there is no living thing on this planet that is left untouched by anomalies, permutations and variations. Yet oddly gender identity is expected to be unflinching and rigid because those whose sex and gender identity align say it should be so.

This denial of reality is beginning to change but only by the sheer force of needing to minister to people who are despondent and in many cases suicidal. The true numbers are beginning to be felt and this disclosure is being described by the skeptical as the “transgender agenda”.

Transgender people are tired of suppressing and living life according to someone else’s rules. Humanity is full of wonderful, caring and understanding individuals but is also replete with agenda-driven half-wits who don’t have two brain cells to rub together. We cannot worry about who loves us or not and just live in the open air like everyone else with the aid of legislative protections.

What needs to happen is that people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity should be left alone to live life on their terms. It sounds so simple and yet for some who would deny this basic right its analogous to societal treason.

If you haven’t reached your own tipping point you are probably almost there already and once on the other side there is no going back.

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.

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…
