entitlement

I will not be able to watch the State of the Union address tonight because that would make me physically ill. Watching this oaf read from a teleprompter with his accordion player gesturing about the urgency of building a wall to stop the dangerous hoards at the border would be enough to short circuit my brain cells.

Anyone who still buys the narrative that Trump is selling might want to give their head a shake and realize it’s all a distraction from the encroaching Mueller investigation. Whether that report ever sees the light of day remains to be seen but when this presidency is over in 2020, Trump will have a plethora of legal troubles tied to his Russia connections as well as his other shady business dealings. Most if not all will be found to have various degrees of tax evasion.

Trump has thus far shown a level of psychopathy that is troubling but not surprising. His level of entitlement harks back to his history as a spoiled child of rich parents who saw no trouble in conducting business outside the boundaries of decency and fair play and once you become used to something, it is very difficult to change. By adulthood a moral backbone cannot be developed if you don’t know what that entails.

It is unfortunate that someone with this level of mental disorder could reach such a prominent level of office and the United States might want to use this as a warning for what could happen in the future. It made me realize how some of the other world despots were able to become leaders of their respective countries and lead their nations into frightening scenarios.

What saves America here is its free media and the checks and balances already in place, but just imagine a Trump-like character in a less enlightened nation and the havoc he could wreak.

It scares me to even think about it.

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 …

One transgender woman's take on AGP

This entry from the transhealth website dates back to 2001 and it offers a very nice dissection of the now mostly debunked but still controversial AGP theory and how this transgender woman could care two cents about it. People who have been trying to marginalize the experience of gynephilic transwomen have pushed for the stigmatizing idea that they are actually perverted men.

Well this soul, who couldn't give a hoot either way, isn't buying any of it and her frankness at times had me chuckling to myself as I read her posting.

If we ever met I would give her a hug for seeing through the BS but mostly for being herself:

"About a year ago I was reading on Dr. Anne Lawrence’s site about a new theory of the origin of trans called “autogynephilia.” This theory asserts that many trans women—and transsexual women in particular—desire reassignment surgery because they are eroticizing the feminization of their bodies.

The first thing that struck me about it, of course, was that it …

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....
