I want my sex back

You could be forgiven for thinking this is a propaganda film but I don't quite see it that way. It's worth watching because it is a profile of 3 people who regret having had their surgery. One of them you will recognize instantly as Walt Heyer: the crusader who thinks every transitioner can be saved through repentance. He also seems to have no qualms about spreading false statistical information.

These different people tell us what many of us already know: namely that transition is not a panacea for everything that ails you and should never be undertaken under any kind of mental duress. Interestingly, one still lives as a woman even as she professes her second thoughts and, to my eyes, still looks comfortable as one.

This short film doesn't pretend to present both sides of the issue because clearly transition has benefitted many people in this world and the regret rate is small. What this short film does, however, is serve as cautionary tale about what can happen when you have not thought things through enough.

What I took away from it is that we need to be sure and mentally stable when we undertake such a huge step. Our feet should be firmly on the ground. Still, if Jesus saved you from being trans many of us would be among his miracles but life doesn't quite work that way.

Do I believe that Walt was ever trans? Not even for a minute but you be the judge...


  1. Well, all I can say is that I've paid my dues in full......and they can keep the 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…
