the Canadian Tomi Lahren

We have our own version of Tomi Lahren in Canada and her name is Faith Goldy. She is pretty and young and ultra conservative and appears on our version of right wing media (Sun News) to say things like homosexuality is a choice and a sin and that catcalls towards women are compliments.

Her brashness comes stupidity to be sure but also from her youth which imbeds her in a deep and profound ignorance of how the world actually works. I know this because I have at one time been there myself when I believed that people chose to be gay or lesbian. I also believed that I caused my own gender dysphoria.

Youth is the period of your life when you are most likely to be brash and when your ideals are not deterred by reality or by empathy for the lives of other people. In this case, Goldy comes off as a strident Catholic who oddly doesn't have a problem with wearing overly tight fitting tops to her television interviews. What would the nuns think?

It is a right wing and merciless Catholicism that even I do not recognize.

Ms. Goldy appeals to a lot of young racists who probably lust for her and to older people who think the work is going to hell in a hand basket; that same geriatric audience that is drawn to Fox News in the United States. But I don't thing that people like Faith Goldy are dangerous only intoxicated with mantras that won't allow the messiness of real life to get in their way. They just march along judging everyone who doesn't agree with their neat and tidy alt-right vision of the world.

how times change

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...


my last post

This will be my last post.

When I wrote recently that this blog had another seven years of life in it I was trying to convince myself that it was true. It was in fact a little bit of self delusion.

With almost 3,000 posts to date I have accomplished what I set out to do which was to heal myself and in the process share some of the struggle I had been through with others on the chance they might find some value in my words. After seven years of writing, my life still isn't perfect; no one's is. But I have discovered a path forward completely free of the trappings which society would have had me adopt so I could fit in.

Over the last 25 years of my life I have turned over every stone I could find while exploring this topic and in the process realized that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of this deeply complex subject. What I have ultimately learned is that my instincts have more value than what someone who isn't gender dysphoric writes about me. We are very …

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…
