Wilmore to the rescue

I need to apologize to Whatever, Yeah because not having watched the entire episode of Real Time on HBO I had not realized that Breibart's Milo Yiannopoulos had come after transgender people during the show. It does not surprise me however since he is a disgusting piece of work.

This is one area where Bill Maher himself is also confused and actually agreed with Milo over transgender bathrooms which is deeply disappointing.

Comedian Larry Wilmore comes in to the rescue and rightfully tells Milo to go you know where....

  1. No apology necessary. Appreciated but unnecessary.

    And it wasn't justvthe trans oart. Maher argued that Joan Rivers said a lot of the provocative things Milo said, so why the loathing for Milo? Dig, Bill. Because Rivers was a raunchy comedian delivering boundary-pushing jokes. Even when she went after minorities or gays, everyone understood the context, and Rivers never actually called for unequal treatment of human beings.

    I agree with Maher's defense of shtick. I'd even apply it to someone like Andrew Dice Clay (whom I never found funny). But Milo isn't delovering shtick any more than Rush Limbaugh.

    1. And Milo was just disinvited to speak at a conservative conference because of his endorsement of pedophilia, which finally tipped the scales in what they felt was crossing the line. Interesting how they rationalized that decision and derided the so-called censorship of Milo by the "liberal left."

  3. It is interesting that he had to come out is support of abusing the trust of children before they reacted. Harassing trans people was not enough.

    Now, of course Milo has managed to fix the impression that gay men are child molesters in the mind of the extreme right. In the minds of these people that will also mean -- by extension -- that trans women are child molesters.

    What a complete idiot!

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...


indoctrination

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…

feeling sexy

Here are the results of a recent survey of genetic women:

“A new hairdo, walking in heels and a glowing tan are among the things that make a woman feel sexy. Freshly applied lipstick, newly-shaved legs and a little black dress also have a positive effect on the psyche”

Are you surprised? I’m not because it is exactly the same list that makes transgender women feel sexy.

For a long time the idea was pandered about that transsexualism was rooted exclusively in aberrant sexuality. But of course you cannot separate the sexuality from the individual because that forms part of their overall makeup and the fact that genetic and transsexual women overlap here surprises no one.

We should also add here that women aren't always thinking about sex and neither are transgender women.

Pre transition transsexuals would not readily admit they found these things sexy because they were afraid to be seen as perverted men in front of gatekeepers who understood nothing about their condition.

Today we kn…
