  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 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...


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…

more thoughts on cross gender arousal

I have been reflecting for many years on how cross gender arousal originates.

Firstly, the transgender child has already exhibited (or hidden) some gender variance for several years before they arrive at puberty (I wasn't older than 4 when scolded for wearing my mother's shoes). But when they hit puberty a dilemma occurs: the object of the sexual attraction is also someone whose gender they identify with either fully or partly. This contradiction affects the imprinting of the sexual identity but it is not well described as target location error but rather as a pull in two separate directions which leaves the gynephilic adolescent facing two distinct paths. I was keenly aware of this problem but wanted to be normal so I suppressed the dysphoric feelings as hard as I could. I wasn't attracted to my own image as a woman but rather to the idea of being a desirable woman as well as being with one. That juxtaposition fused to my gender core and I was left with a riddle to solve:…
