a chance at a complete overhaul

Rex Tillerson had his moment of candor and of course he wasn’t wrong; the man he is working for is a f@#ing moron and a dangerous one at that.

This is where populism fails because, in its proper form, it requires a man with dignity and intellect who defies the red tape of bureaucracy in order to do the right thing to benefit the electorate. I can safely state that this does not describe Donald Trump in the least. He is instead the equivalent of a tempestuous and clueless juvenile with a penchant for striking out at detractors.

His base may represent the rabble of America but then there are many others who held their nose instead of voting for Clinton. So if America can make it all the way through what will assuredly be a horrid remainder of the term they may be compelled enough to make a wholesale change to a political system that is so corrupt it allowed this buffoon to become president.

When Trump goes he can also take that little weasel Jeff Sessions and his twisted agenda with him.

If true change doesn’t come after this I don’t know when it will and I just hope and pray that there will be enough adults left in the administration to prevent a nuclear war.

Can you imagine the Cuban missile crisis with Trump at the helm?

It makes me shudder just thinking about it.

  1. "Can you imagine the Cuban missile crisis with Trump at the helm?"

    Unfortunately that is where we are now with North Korea. The only good news is that it seems that China is on our side if only because they can't afford the global economic upheaval that would happen if we get into a war. I suppose it's also good news that it doesn't seem that Russia has direct involvement with North Korea but then again isn't this situation exactly what Putin aims for? They have more modern strategies to cause disruption and war without installing missile hardware in North Korea.

  2. I'm not sure what it will take to make Americans overhaul our government. It's been broken for so long, and our slide into kakistocracy was eminently predictable. The average American still doesn't think anything REALLY bad could happen.

    I don't know what we're on the verge of. Republicans hold almost enough states to call a whole Constitutional convention. And we don't really believe in our rights. Most people here haven't read the Constitution we have. They just assume it says and means what they want it to.

    1. its actually depressing. Only 38% of Americans know that the civil war was about slavery. The next biggest chunk at 41% think it was about state's rights.

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…
