no point arguing against the ideologically driven

Well the dogmatically-driven idiots over at Breibart News are at it again.

Telling us that the facts point to transgenderism being rooted in an ideological movement instead of in science. Well why didn't they tell me that when I was a kid I know it would have made all the difference to me.

Clearly these people are not interested in facts. Also where did they get the "born in the wrong body" line for I haven't heard any trans person I know utter those words.

If these right-wingers had done even some basic homework they would know that gender dysphoria does not respond to psychotherapy and, I don't know about you, but I am not mentally ill.

But this article is about ideology driving fact creation instead of the other way around.

I take it these people would rather have us try conversion therapy on these kids and then witness its utter ineffectiveness. Or perhaps they would prefer we shoot transgender people like horses with a broken leg?

It should be obvious to any thinking person that if this were an ideological movement, you wouldn't have transgender people showing up in every single country in the world and independent of race or religion. But then this is what happens when you are blinded by a belief system and won't be disturbed by data that contradicts it.

Once again we have people with no intimate knowledge of a subject talking out of their rear ends.

But then what else is new...

  1. Hi Joanna,

    Indeed, the Breitbarts of the world continue to stir up fear, hate, and prejudice to support their otherwise unsupportable positions. We see this even today, some 50 odd years since blacks stood their ground and the KKK and others in the US and around the world such as South Africa continue their racist and cruel and murderous programs.

    I do think that 2016 was a great year for trans people. Below is a link to an article that provides a summary. Will 2017 be as good? Impossible to say especially with Trump/Pence's inauguration. We will all try...

  2. We must be vigilant Emma and fight prejudice everywhere and at all levels. But yes having dumb and dumber in the White House is going to be frightening...

my last post

This will be my last blog post.

When I wrote recently that this blog had another seven years of life in it I was trying to convince myself that it was true. It was in fact a little bit of self delusion.

With almost 3,000 posts to date I have accomplished what I set out to do which was to heal myself and in the process share some of the struggle I had been through with others on the chance they might find some value in my words. After seven years of writing, my life still isn't perfect; no one's is. But I have discovered a path forward completely free of the trappings which society would have had me adopt so I could fit in.

Over the last 25 years of my life I have turned over every stone I could find while exploring this topic and in the process realized that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of this deeply complex subject. What I have ultimately learned is that my instincts have more value than what someone who isn't gender dysphoric writes about me. We are …

epilogue

While this blog is most definitely over, I wanted to explain that part of the reason is that it was getting in the way of writing my next book called "Notes, Essays and Short Stories from the North" which will combine philosophy, trans issues, my observations on life, some short fiction and things that have happened to me over my life and continue to (both trans related and not).

When it is complete I will post the news here and will be happy to send you a free copy upon request in either PDF or eBook format. All I ask is that you provide me with some feedback once you're done reading it.

I'm only in the early stages so it will be a while.

Be well all of you....

love of self

If you feel you are doing something wrong it shows. Your demeanor, body language and facial expression all conspire to betray you.

You are a clandestine "man in a dress"; you know it and everyone else can too. Your cover has been blown. I've been there and it's frustrating. The source goes back to your self image and the notion that you are somehow a freak of nature; and perhaps you are but what of it? the only way out is to embrace yourself fully and unconditionally. I don't mean to suggest that you are perfect but just that you were created this way and you need not seek forgiveness for it. You are a creation of God.

Misinterpreted religion is a big culprit in all this. These negative images of yourself came from reinforcement of stereotypes by ignorant people interpreting what is right and moral by their own barometer. You simply ingested the message and bought it as the gospel truth. Self confidence and critical thinking is the way out of your dilemma. It can…
