personal sanctity

Finding personal sanctity isn’t exactly like finding religion. I see it more as respect for your value as a human entity within a global village that has an origin we cannot fully conceive of with our limited brains. It is the appreciation that you have a mind and soul that can be synced together and be made to work harmoniously even as the happenings in the world around us do not.

I think every day about how to live in a more balanced way in a place that is always mired in constant and ever shifting entropy. Finding that peace within yourself is what will make us happy and most of it consists not on the value of things but on variations of human contact and our ability to bring happiness to others.

Much of what I refer to here is practiced spirituality which is not to be confused with forms of bastardized religion that are more prone to enslave us. The way to know the difference is that true spiritual awakening isn’t about limiting ourselves but in taking full advantage of the freedom of will we were given. In other words, we should feel empowered to think and be able to use our full intelligence to discern.

Personal sanctity is respect for one’s creation and for that of others who enrich our existence and make us see and appreciate our full value as human beings.

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...


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…

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…
