AGP dismantled yet again....

I wrote yesterday how being transgender is not a fetish but that hasn't stopped some from trying to establish eroticism experienced as the cause.

Felix Conrad has a nice series of mini lectures set up on his site where he systematically and very logically examines the theory of Autogynephilia and pokes enough holes in it to make it even more of a Swiss cheese than it already was (not that this is so difficult).

Felix touches on the same fallacy of logic as well as the basic missing science which makes the theory a pure fantasy of speculation. If you read the whole thing through you will understand what I mean. It, of course, acknowledges arousal but discounts it as the origin of gynephilic transsexualism. Instead it puts it where it belongs which is as a symptom of something bigger and more complex.

He goes even further in acknowledging that you can have two typologies separated by orientation but that even that is circumstantial and is just another filter through which the condition must pass.

I highly recommend you read the whole thing which can be found at this link

how times 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 …

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....
