barking up the wrong tree

Caitlyn Jenner is barking up the wrong tree and, although I am definitely not a fan of her obtuseness or her politics, I concede that she doesn't deserve the level of vitriol she receives in the comments section of this article in Variety.

Most of the people commenting here are ignorant and uneducated and thankfully don't represent the majority of a voting public who likely can be reasoned with. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that most of these commenters are Republican voters; the kind who likely gleefully lined up to vote for the ignoramus presently occupying the White House.

Why Caitlyn Jenner is wasting her time petitioning within a fringe version of what was already a right wing party boggles the imagination and is one more reason why I question her judgement in dealing with these matters. Time spent speaking to a Paul Ryan or a Mike Pence would be best spent talking to a wall because political fanaticism on that scale is best left alone.

Jack Molay makes a valiant attempt here to introduce an intelligent comment amidst the nonsensical statements and insults but the responses prove these people haven't got a clue. Not one retorts with even a fraction of actual knowledge of the subject or smartly defers that they don't know enough to be qualified to. It reminds me we have a long way to go even with those who have enough common sense and intelligence to merit our time engaging in discussion.

However, I don't harbor hope in converting everyone but rather count on enough people endowed with the power to set up laws to protect us from the uneducated portion of the masses who won't think critically about a subject preferring instead to resort to echo chamber histrionics.

Caitlyn, I might suggest you look elsewhere for support and wait until this disastrous administration is removed from power....

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…
