They drag me back in...

Autogynephilia theory supporters call anyone who does not acknowledge their invented condition “deniers”.

I'm sorry but we already know that cross gender arousal exists and always has existed.

In fact, it existed long before this pseudoscientific term was coined but the simple reason many of us don’t acknowledge the validity of this so called "theory" is because it associates the desire to transition exclusively with sexual arousal and nothing else. In other words, it negates that there is such thing as a transgender identity.

At this point I am going to assume these people think we are stupid.

It cannot be put in simpler terms.

  1. On any given topic there are individuals whose thinking is the personification of fast-acting concrete. The notion of considering a thought from various vantage points before drawing a conclusion is simply alien to them. Seemingly, objectivity isn't in their DNA.

  2. It's unfortunate but true Katie and there are self interests involved in promoting this quackery I'm afraid. Better people have gone before in this field of research and yet failed to come up with this conclusion namely Hirschfeld and Benjamin to name the most prominent.

  3. I suspect the quackery (nice word) is a masquerade of science for their prejudice against something they cannot understand nor accept. As if, since they can't tolerate transgender they must therefore establish rhetoric that denies it.

    The worst part of their position is the hurt it causes people who are in the early stages of their own learning about themselves, when they are absorbing everything they can, perhaps already afraid and ashamed, and thus further marginalized and hurt, possibly for years or decades.

  4. There is a lot of truth in what you say Emma. There has been an attempt to marginalise transgender people and those who push in this direction have used the work of Blanchard as reinforcement. It's not science but it is packaged to appear that way until you open the wrapper and see nothing there. When I was struggling this work almost had me fooled for a while and it only added to my self blame that this is something I might have caused.

  5. I wonder, have you seen this: I Am A Girl! - Ik ben een meisje!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXpViPHnT3U

    When we see videos like this it's so clear that she was simply born transgender. She's lovely, I'm sure you'll agree.

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 …

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....

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…
