I second that!

  1. Though their methods of saying so are vastly different, this commentator, President Obama, and President Trump all agree that we woefully lack immigration laws that do the right thing. The lack of proper laws on the subject allow Presidents to act on this issue by decree in a draconian fashion (Trump) or an irresponsible fashion (Obama), decrees that whipsaw the innocent and encourage bad behavior. Neither Presidents nor the courts can solve this problem or even make things better. Only Congress can create a better, lasting solution. Both Presidents and this commentator are right to recommend that we contact our Members of Congress and upbraid (and keep upbraiding) those who are failing at writing the laws: get off their lazy, scared-of-their-own-shadow a$$e$, start negotiating with each other like we as citizens elected them to do, and draft and pass legislation that addresses this issue properly. You betcha it is hard work for everyone concerned, but anything worthwhile usually is.

    1. What bothers me in particular about this president is that he is not about moral courage but about himself and his history shows it. So he is being guided around by the Steve Bannons and the family council of evangelicals who are essentially white religious hypocrites who don't want these people in America. I do not agree that Obama and Trump are alike although I bemoan the fact that legislation could not have been passed to solve the problem once and for all because these hard working and decent Americans don't deserve deportation.

indoctrination

As transgender people, organized religion hasn't really been our friend however on the other hand it has often had little to do with true spirituality. I needed to learn this over time and much of what I was taught growing up was steeped in the judgmental superstition of society instead of what some creator would demand of me.

Regardless of your belief system, you are a child of the universe and have been endowed with uniqueness and goodness of spirit. You have probably never wished anyone ill will and you have tried your best to live within the absurd coordinate system of humanity. Yet somehow belonging to the LGBT community was entirely your fault.

As I have grown older this inherent irrationality became increasingly evident to me. I knew I was a fundamentally good person and yet I was different in a way which was not of my choosing. Hence with this comprehension my self appreciation and esteem grew in proportion.

Religion for me today seems forever trapped in the misinterpretat…

another coming out

Recently I had lunch with one of the young estimators who occasionally works with me here in Toronto. We were chatting about work and our respective lives when she queried about my love life:

“So how is it going on that front. Meet anyone interesting lately?”

I reflected for a moment and then said:

“My situation is a little particular and if you don’t mind I can share something about myself”

She leaned in a bit and told me to please go ahead.

“I am trans” I said matter of factly.

She looked at me and smiled and said:

“Really? That’s so neat”

She is 35 years old and a lovely person which is why I knew I could confide in her. I then added that I had been reflecting on whether I would switch companies and begin working as Joanna and although she is totally open she also knows how conservative our business can be. So I told her that if I did decide to it would definitely be under a different umbrella.

Then yesterday I was coming back to my place and the lady who rents it to me, who is abo…

feeling sexy

Here are the results of a recent survey of genetic women:

“A new hairdo, walking in heels and a glowing tan are among the things that make a woman feel sexy. Freshly applied lipstick, newly-shaved legs and a little black dress also have a positive effect on the psyche”

Are you surprised? I’m not because it is exactly the same list that makes transgender women feel sexy.

For a long time the idea was pandered about that transsexualism was rooted exclusively in aberrant sexuality. But of course you cannot separate the sexuality from the individual because that forms part of their overall makeup and the fact that genetic and transsexual women overlap here surprises no one.

We should also add here that women aren't always thinking about sex and neither are transgender women.

Pre transition transsexuals would not readily admit they found these things sexy because they were afraid to be seen as perverted men in front of gatekeepers who understood nothing about their condition.

Today we kn…
