all that we share

My friend Jack Molay sent me this short video which I am certain all of you will all appreciate. Its simple message is that there is more that unites us as humans than separates us.

Yesterday, 6 muslim worshippers were gunned down in a mosque in Quebec City and although the identity of the assailants is not yet known, what matters is that it happened in this horrible environment of fear we are creating.

The pot is boiling over and identity politics is beginning to take hold. So while President man-child spends his time tweeting inanities, authorities from 16 U.S. airports denounced the unlawful detention of people from 7 Muslim nations as un-American and unconstitutional. Welcome to Steve Bannon's white nationalist America.

I think we are going to need to reinforce the message contained in this video all the more...

  1. There is much hope for peace and understanding in the world. The adversity to it right now will be an incentive for more to say, "We see how much pain you feel Donald (Vlad ... etc.). Don't be afraid. Hating is not the way. Let us show you."

    1. We certainly do. Trump's ego is spending his political capital at an unsustainable rate stupidly which, I predict, will generate a groundswell of the people (even Republicans) who will no longer be able to avoid recognizing him for the clown that he is.

      In my earlier post I forgot to give my concern and support about the murders in Quebec. I am at a loss for words that express my deep feelings of pain and helplessness.

One transgender woman's take on AGP

This entry from the transhealth website dates back to 2001 and it offers a very nice dissection of the now mostly debunked but still controversial AGP theory and how this transgender woman could care two cents about it. People who have been trying to marginalize the experience of gynephilic transwomen have pushed for the stigmatizing idea that they are actually perverted men. Well this soul, who couldn't give a hoot either way, isn't buying any of it and her frankness at times had me chuckling to myself as I read her posting. If we ever met I would give her a hug for seeing through the BS but mostly for being herself: "About a year ago I was reading on Dr. Anne Lawrence’s site about a new theory of the origin of trans called “autogynephilia.” This theory asserts that many trans women—and transsexual women in particular—desire reassignment surgery because they are eroticizing the feminization of their bodies. The first thing that struck me about it, of course, was t

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

Never Say Never....

 I was certain that I would never post here again and yet, here I am. It’s been several years, and life has changed me yet again. I have burrowed further into my psyche to discover more internal truths about myself all in the silence of a life lived with more periods of reflective solitude than ever before. After attempting for many years to be a problem solver for others, I needed to dig deeply to discover who I was, which should be a necessity for all people and an absolute imperative for those of us who dare rub against the grain of conventional society. The most important thing we can do for ourselves is honor the internal voice which has driven us since childhood. That whisper which we were compelled to ignore through our initial indoctrination must be listened to again for guidance. I knew I had spent too long heeding messaging that wasn’t working for me as a trans person, and it was time to stop. For the world gleefully basks in a level ignorance and hypocrisy we are not abl
