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.

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…

let's please read carefully

This post is prompted by a recent comment I received to one of my older posts and I wanted to address it.

I used to wonder why some transgender people accepted Blanchard’s work until I think I figured out why: they may not have examined it closely enough. They would experience cross gender arousal and then accept it was Autogynephilia without properly understanding what the term meant and what the theory said: it is an invented sexual “illness” which makes people transition. In other words, it is the arousal itself which causes this desire and not a pre-existing gender identity which does not align with birth sex. Of course, Blanchard has no explanation for the origin of his proposed “illness” only that it is a form of sexual deviance.

My counter proposal? we transition despite this arousal. In other words, the transgender identity is pre-existing and the arousal is the result of the mismatching of burgeoning sexual feelings towards females and this misaligned identity; it is not per…
