a universal truth

Gender identities lie on a graded spectrum. However it appears that most people can fit reasonably well within a portion that allows them to fully identify with their birth sex.

Transgender people however, cannot entirely do so.

Some will have a gender identity that is entirely reversed from their birth sex and will more than likely end up as transgender women. Others will live in some form of partial transition while the remainder will settle for some degree of gender variance which reflects their sense of self.

The way sexual orientation plays into this dynamic is to either align or misalign with gender identification. When a person’s gender identity aligns with orientation they will be more likely to identity as transgender earlier in life whereas the opposite will be true when orientation misaligns with identity.

This universal model should apply to both male and female born individuals and makes far more sense than the scattered and confused proposals we have seen to date from the so-called “experts”.

There isn't a transgender agenda, ideology or fad but rather people who used to sit on the sidelines waiting for society to approve of them are coming out of the woodwork because they got fed up of playing along with the rules. The relaxing of the gender norms in recent years gave them the opening they were looking for to finally be themselves.

I am utterly dismayed that some people are either too ignorant or vested in their own belief systems to understand such a basic fact of life. Gender identity is not directly correlated to birth genitalia and we are confirming this time and time again. That video I posted yesterday had a commenter stating that "Jesus can heal you" and all I could think of was slapping him because this has nothing to do with religious principles or moral fortitude; but such is the stupendous ignorance in this world.

There is nothing organic which is static or perfectly uniform; absolutely nothing. So let's get over it and move on shall we?

Image result for gender is a spectrum


  1. Take a look at this:
    I visited their store in Seattle yesterday with a friend and was very impressed with their very outspoken messaging about trans as people. It seems to me that they are recognizing both an important market segment as well as an important social shift in awareness that helps them position their company. It will be interesting to see who follows.

    1. More and more businesses are becoming enlightened to inclusiveness issues and I couldn't be happier.

  2. I enjoy how you frequently address the serious subject of gender with sparks of insight and open our eyes to new ways of thinking about it. Much public discussion of the subject is depressingly ill-informed. How some (like myself) navigate through the maze of social organization (which shifts over time) is difficult, so discussion like yours helps.

    1. I don't mind ill informed if they are open to being enlightened Ally. The ones that worry me are the close minded nuts who just refuse to get it because they are too brain washed with their agenda to listen.

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

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

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
