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....

my last post

This will be my last blog 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 …

epilogue

While this blog is most definitely over, I wanted to explain that part of the reason is that it was getting in the way of writing my next book called "Notes, Essays and Short Stories from the North" which will combine philosophy, trans issues, my observations on life, some short fiction and things that have happened to me over my life and continue to (both trans related and not).

When it is complete I will post the news here and will be happy to send you a free copy upon request in either PDF or eBook format. All I ask is that you provide me with some feedback once you're done reading it.

I'm only in the early stages so it will be a while.

Be well all of you....

love of self

If you feel you are doing something wrong it shows. Your demeanor, body language and facial expression all conspire to betray you.

You are a clandestine "man in a dress"; you know it and everyone else can too. Your cover has been blown. I've been there and it's frustrating. The source goes back to your self image and the notion that you are somehow a freak of nature; and perhaps you are but what of it? the only way out is to embrace yourself fully and unconditionally. I don't mean to suggest that you are perfect but just that you were created this way and you need not seek forgiveness for it. You are a creation of God.

Misinterpreted religion is a big culprit in all this. These negative images of yourself came from reinforcement of stereotypes by ignorant people interpreting what is right and moral by their own barometer. You simply ingested the message and bought it as the gospel truth. Self confidence and critical thinking is the way out of your dilemma. It can…
