Yesterday N asked me if I would ever transition if she were not in the picture. My answer was an emphatic no.

I have reflected on this question many times and the conclusion has been the same every time. While there are advantages to living your life in one form I don't see how it would improve so drastically by transitioning to full time living.

I seemed to have fused both male and female animas into a formula that works even if that formula is not perfect. There might always be a little nagging question of what if but I chalk that up to the gender dysphoria. I have gotten to know how it works and what I need to do to feed its demands.

The best tool in my arsenal has been to be completely honest with myself and truly reflect on what is required. Life is never perfect for anyone and while we may have gender issues others grapple with depression or physical illnesses.

My having developed a perfect comfort with clothing, makeup and mannerisms has been pivotal and all that practice didn't go to waste. I have long ago outgrown the confines of my own space and my female persona must exist in the real world in order for me to feel whole.

It feels very much like I have attained a comfortable plateau where I can continue to exist indefinitely and this is extremely reassuring to me.


  1. I am with you. I do have my days where it hurts a bit to be in the middle knowing how much energy it takes to spend time at each end but when all is said and done, I won't move from where I am today. Happy New Year!

    1. Glad to hear it Leann...all the best for this new year

  2. While I'm sure we both agree a trans person should do whatever they want - vis a vis transition, I can't tell you how emphatically I believe that yours is the correct path for your/our particular transgender profile. When I say 'correct' I mean - 'all things considered and evaluating happiness long term - this is the path most likely to lead to stability and happiness.' You can accept that you are female - or part female - but that doesn't mean you must do x, y and z... you take your time and find the best path - which must always be a compromise between the reality of your female soul and the reality of your male body. Anyway, happy new year...

  3. por cierto... C'est moi... Felix...

    1. and a Happy New Year to you as well Felix. Yes I do think I have definitely reached a place of comfort where I can exist and be happy. Took long enough! all the best to you for 2016 and keep on writing!

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 …


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....

love of self

If you feel you are doing something wrong it shows. Your demeanor, body language and facial expression all conspire to betray you.

You are a clandestine "man in a dress"; you know it and everyone else can too. Your cover has been blown. I've been there and it's frustrating. The source goes back to your self image and the notion that you are somehow a freak of nature; and perhaps you are but what of it? the only way out is to embrace yourself fully and unconditionally. I don't mean to suggest that you are perfect but just that you were created this way and you need not seek forgiveness for it. You are a creation of God.

Misinterpreted religion is a big culprit in all this. These negative images of yourself came from reinforcement of stereotypes by ignorant people interpreting what is right and moral by their own barometer. You simply ingested the message and bought it as the gospel truth. Self confidence and critical thinking is the way out of your dilemma. It can…
