free thought

The search for spiritual truth and the practice of religion are not necessarily the same thing. Religion is the application of spiritual ideas within a shared and formalized structure but it can be soiled with human ideas and foibles that warp its essential message.

You may have noticed that it has never been in the interest of most traditional religions to allow its flocks to think because this would invite a possibility of disadhereing from their rules. Hence it was better to have black and white pronouncements which were to be followed to gain access to some reward.

Clearly it is impossible that all religions are correct because there is only one universal truth. This is how we know how divergent we are from what likely be a huge shock to all of them. Yes, they share a common message of gaining some sort of divine discovery through some power higher than ourselves. However, there are plenty of distractions which entrap the faithful more enamored of ceremony, to get caught up in the semantics of their own religion. Through the obeying of dogma the mind can be shut off because it is no longer required.

Instead, our spirituality should require our attention and readjustment as we develop as humans. We cannot remain stuck because each age and phase of life is steeped in growth. Do we think the same way at the age of 12 as we do today?

I would certainly hope not.

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…
