the vociferous

Social conservatism is not about live and let live; it is exactly the opposite. This is why you will read articles from its disciples on numerous sites on the internet criticizing any group or movement that doesn’t fit into their idea of acceptability.

Take heed libertarians that I am not talking about you.

So Ben Shapiro, Anne Coulter, Tomi Lahren and others spend their time dumping on groups who ostensibly want to be left alone as in not being discriminated against or even worse murdered. For these people Black Lives Matter becomes a terrorist organization and the Antifa are the exact equivalent of Nazi skinheads. Take note that I am not advocating violence only illustrating a point.

These right wing social justice warriors are all about propping up white people, keeping immigrants to a minimum and calling transgender men or women sufferers of mental illness whose acceptance into the societal fold signals its eventual demise.

You will note that people on the left are fighting the right while the right is fighting anything and anyone they don’t accept and there is the difference. So while I may not advocate every policy coming from the left I favour their penchant for leaving people alone to live their lives.

With the level of polarization at an all time high in the United States it will be interesting thing to see what transpires. The only thing I do know however is that this vociferous group of intolerants represents a minority that works on breeding hatred not through violence but through words which rely on a strategy of divide and conquer. They are the cockroaches who have come out to play emboldened by the Trump administration’s insanity but they don’t represent the silent and mostly decent majority.

Just like those Trump rallies give the impression of a huge fan base in front of strategically placed cameras, the truth of sparsity of support becomes evident when one surveys the entire room or, better still, the size of the inauguration crowd.

How times have changed.

Whereas transition was something not to even contemplate for us, here is a young trans person who felt the opposite pressure. She looks and sounds extremely passable but decided it wasn't for her despite the social media presence of young transitioners potentially inspiring her to.

We are all different and I happen to think she's rather a smart cookie as well...


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…

let's please read carefully

This post is prompted by a recent comment I received to one of my older posts and I wanted to address it.

I used to wonder why some transgender people accepted Blanchard’s work until I think I figured out why: they may not have examined it closely enough. They would experience cross gender arousal and then accept it was Autogynephilia without properly understanding what the term meant and what the theory said: it is an invented sexual “illness” which makes people transition. In other words, it is the arousal itself which causes this desire and not a pre-existing gender identity which does not align with birth sex. Of course, Blanchard has no explanation for the origin of his proposed “illness” only that it is a form of sexual deviance.

My counter proposal? we transition despite this arousal. In other words, the transgender identity is pre-existing and the arousal is the result of the mismatching of burgeoning sexual feelings towards females and this misaligned identity; it is not per…
