after the carnage

No the fascism that plagued Europe in the early 20th century isn't coming back. After all, that included an important element of expansionism and killing or imprisoning of dissenters. However where the overlap lies is in the blaming of immigrants for what ills a nation.

In places like eastern Europe we are seeing a stronger response from what used to be fringe groups. France has its own nationalist party under Marine Le Pen and even after Brexit you began to see chest beating among Britons who pined for a more monolithic culture before their emerald isle was invaded by foreigners.

The United States under that insufferable windbag Donald Trump is now appealing to low brow sentiment through the smoke screen of blaming media, the courts and immigrants for the nation’s malady. Let's recall that Hitler’s early foray into power saw the same attempts at discrediting the Jewish media and indeed chief propagandist Joseph Goebbels was charged with the campaign to undermine their credibility. Hitler also set up a people's court once he began to see that rulings were not going his way.

Starting to see the parallels?

But while fascism the way it once was may not see a return, we are seeing signs that democracy is under attack. Not that true democracies actually exist mind you, just that the current flawed models are being challenged.

In the United States it’s income disparity and unfairness that threatens the country's health and Trump will ravage the base that helped propel him to power by applying the principles dear to the hearts of conservatives. As the ruling elite of both parties line their pockets the disenfranchised will eventually realise that they are being duped and even the jingoistic Trump rallies won’t be enough to mask the reality that America is actually an unbalanced oligarchy. Even his intellectually challenged base will get the message.

By the end of Trump's tenure, I am counting on the intelligent and tech savvy millennials to see through the charade and use their country’s constitutional protections to remake the country in proper fashion.

The carnage that this idiot president will most assuredly leave behind will hopefully be sufficient argument to try a better form of governing; one that actually looks after the needs of the populace.

Secular Talk's Kyle Kulinski is one of those Millenials who is really pissed and for good reason....

  1. I absolutely agree with everything you said. As an US citizen, I am appalled with this clown that was elected President. I am also saddened that the a portion of the electorate in this Country was duped into voting for this carnival barker. I am also frightened that there are people who have, and still, ardently support him.

  2. those people that voted for him were indeed duped but it wont take long for the shine from the apple to wear thin and they will realize that there is a better way. Perhaps this is the right amount of toxin that is required in order to instill real change in America which means a return to the principles of a fair and just society.

  3. I think Trump's administration's days are numbered. Maybe that's wishful thinking but I watched almost all of the House Intelligence Committee's public meeting this morning when they interviewed James Comey (FBI) and Mike Rogers (NSA). Those guys may not be telling the entire truth but I trusted them at their word, which says that they really are doing a full-fledged investigation of the Trump group's involvement with the Russians and other things. Unfortunately there is no timeframe for their conclusions.

    I also read that Trump's approval rating is 38% now and his disapproval rating is 58% so the Republicans who keep defending and supporting him must start wondering if they should stick it out with that sinking ship. Their judgement will look terrible as Trump's ratings continue to decline and especially if Trump's ties to Russia come out.

    I can't wait...

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…
