  1. Another senseless tragedy brought about by the proliferation of assault weapons that our politicians won't do anything about because they are in the back pockets of the NRA. These atrocities that occur way to frequently are a bane on my Country. Yet, the pessimism that has been afflicting me is finally turning to optimism. I have seen this video, as well as many others of these young victims of tragedy, showing the future of this Country. It is these young people afflicted by tragedy who are the future of the US. They get it and they have had it with these do nothing politicians bought and paid for by the NRA. They are fed up. They may not be voting age yet but when they are, they will be powerful and they are the ones who will make the US greater than it has ever been. I will be with them and I will do everything I can to support them.

    1. the millenials are not perfect Kristina but this issue they definitely get and you can rest assured that they will change the laws in your country for the better when it comes to guns.

    2. I pray you’re correct Joanna but I won’t rest assured until I see real laws enacted. By “real” I mean laws with teeth that actually address the problem. It’s obvious that mentally ill people shouldn’t have guns. But what’s the definition? It’s obvious that mass shooters will plead mental illness, isn’t that too late? The point is that no one needs semiautomatic weapons and bullets. We just don’t. And yet there are hundreds of thousands already owned. And when there is even a hint of new legislation sales go up... dramatically. The government needs to outlaw these weapons once and for all, offer a buy back, and prosecute anyone who doesn’t abide with the law. That is “real.” Anything else is BS.

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…
