the circus side show

Donald Trump brags about lying to world leaders and, looking very much like the fool he is, he does not realize the joke is on him.

Perhaps he has forgotten that no one is going to want to negotiate with a liar and, when Prime Minister Trudeau reminded him that the US actually had a surplus and not a trade deficit with Canada, Trump didn't believe it until his own sycophants were able to confirm it for him.

Now with Tillerson gone and McMaster likely next, he is said to be preparing himself to hire proper yes men and/or radical fringe politicians like John Bolton who share his penchant for histrionics and are considered to be too extremist even for the already fringe GOP.

If people who voted for this man still don't get that he was a bad choice I suppose they never will but clearly some are, because Connor Lamb's congressional victory in a safely red Pennsylvania district could signify there is payback coming this November for not having put a stop to his buffoonery sooner.

  1. Every day since Trump’s ascendency has been maddening, nauseating and frightening. As he learns he actually can fire or ignore anyone who does not genuflect at his every word, he seems increasingly determined to ignite a Constitutional crisis. I honestly do not know what he will do if Democrats retake Congress. I am not confident that he will step aside if he loses in 2020. I’m already signed up to march in protest should he fire Mueller.

    My country has cancer, and it’s metastasising quickly. We’ll have another round of chemo and radiation in November, but it might not be enough.

    1. Sometimes before you can instill real change something drastic needs to happen to wake up the populace. This side show idiot might just be what makes the process begin. I really hope so because there cannot be anymore reality show presidents

    2. Firing Mueller would invite mass protests in the street because this would be flirting with despotism

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:…
