well said

I know that Jack already posted this video over at Crossdreamers a while back but I am doing it here in case some of you missed it.

Natalie and I are a little different in our histories (but aren't all transgender people a little bit so?). Here she does a marvelous job of encapsulating and debunking all the awful pseudoscience that I have addressed in my blog for several years now while using just the right amount of comedic flair. She pokes holes into the certainty that some say exists regarding the transgender condition (other than the fact that we are not mentally ill).

If you haven't seen it yet I suggest you view the whole thing because its really good and summarizes the main arguments against trying to paint trans people as sexual deviants. She also explains her own motivations for transition.

Thanks to Caryn for the heads up on her channel.

NB: my post called Indoctration has to date exceeded 1,000 views which is rare for one of my posts prompting me to assume that someone must have put it on some high traffic website. Thanks to that individual.

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…
