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...


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…

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…
