the idiot defense

Trump may be an idiot but according to legal experts the “idiot defense” would not fly in a court of law. So those GOP politicians coming to his side by saying he didn’t know what he was doing and that he is a newbie president don’t understand the law.

All you need to prove is bad intent which by clearing the room and telling James Comey privately to seeing his way to letting this investigation slide was clearly there. Most lawyers never get that much red meat and, by actually admitting it via Twitter, it is only icing on the sundae for them.

Impeachment is in no way certain however with a Republican house and senate so unless the Democrats win in 2108 things won’t likely change. Mueller would have to find a real smoking gun which would then raise the public outcry all the more for justice.

  1. He doesn't need to understand that he's obstructing justice to obstruct justice. And if he really doesn't understand, it's only more reason to get rid of him.

    But no one but the hateful, the wildly ignorant (even by American standards) and those with ulterior motives can actually defend him with a straight face. And that last group isn't really "defending him." The vast majority of the country and the world knows he's just a malignant Chauncey Gardner. (I really wish I had come up with that.)

    Oh, and if the Democrats are still around in 2108, I'll roll over in my grave. :-)

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…

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 …
