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 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…

let's please read carefully

This post is prompted by a recent comment I received to one of my older posts and I wanted to address it.

I used to wonder why some transgender people accepted Blanchard’s work until I think I figured out why: they may not have examined it closely enough. They would experience cross gender arousal and then accept it was Autogynephilia without properly understanding what the term meant and what the theory said: it is an invented sexual “illness” which makes people transition. In other words, it is the arousal itself which causes this desire and not a pre-existing gender identity which does not align with birth sex. Of course, Blanchard has no explanation for the origin of his proposed “illness” only that it is a form of sexual deviance.

My counter proposal? we transition despite this arousal. In other words, the transgender identity is pre-existing and the arousal is the result of the mismatching of burgeoning sexual feelings towards females and this misaligned identity; it is not per…
