a universal truth

Gender identities lie on a graded spectrum. However it appears that most people can fit reasonably well within a portion that allows them to fully identify with their birth sex.

Transgender people however, cannot entirely do so.

Some will have a gender identity that is entirely reversed from their birth sex and will more than likely end up as transgender women. Others will live in some form of partial transition while the remainder will settle for some degree of gender variance which reflects their sense of self.

The way sexual orientation plays into this dynamic is to either align or misalign with gender identification. When a person’s gender identity aligns with orientation they will be more likely to identity as transgender earlier in life whereas the opposite will be true when orientation misaligns with identity.

This universal model should apply to both male and female born individuals and makes far more sense than the scattered and confused proposals we have seen to date from the so-called “experts”.

There isn't a transgender agenda, ideology or fad but rather people who used to sit on the sidelines waiting for society to approve of them are coming out of the woodwork because they got fed up of playing along with the rules. The relaxing of the gender norms in recent years gave them the opening they were looking for to finally be themselves.

I am utterly dismayed that some people are either too ignorant or vested in their own belief systems to understand such a basic fact of life. Gender identity is not directly correlated to birth genitalia and we are confirming this time and time again. That video I posted yesterday had a commenter stating that "Jesus can heal you" and all I could think of was slapping him because this has nothing to do with religious principles or moral fortitude; but such is the stupendous ignorance in this world.

There is nothing organic which is static or perfectly uniform; absolutely nothing. So let's get over it and move on shall we?

  1. Take a look at this: https://www.lushusa.com/story?cid=article_trans-rights-are-human-rights
    I visited their store in Seattle yesterday with a friend and was very impressed with their very outspoken messaging about trans as people. It seems to me that they are recognizing both an important market segment as well as an important social shift in awareness that helps them position their company. It will be interesting to see who follows.

    1. More and more businesses are becoming enlightened to inclusiveness issues and I couldn't be happier.

  2. I enjoy how you frequently address the serious subject of gender with sparks of insight and open our eyes to new ways of thinking about it. Much public discussion of the subject is depressingly ill-informed. How some (like myself) navigate through the maze of social organization (which shifts over time) is difficult, so discussion like yours helps.

    1. I don't mind ill informed if they are open to being enlightened Ally. The ones that worry me are the close minded nuts who just refuse to get it because they are too brain washed with their agenda to listen.

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…

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…
