  1. Another senseless tragedy brought about by the proliferation of assault weapons that our politicians won't do anything about because they are in the back pockets of the NRA. These atrocities that occur way to frequently are a bane on my Country. Yet, the pessimism that has been afflicting me is finally turning to optimism. I have seen this video, as well as many others of these young victims of tragedy, showing the future of this Country. It is these young people afflicted by tragedy who are the future of the US. They get it and they have had it with these do nothing politicians bought and paid for by the NRA. They are fed up. They may not be voting age yet but when they are, they will be powerful and they are the ones who will make the US greater than it has ever been. I will be with them and I will do everything I can to support them.

    1. the millenials are not perfect Kristina but this issue they definitely get and you can rest assured that they will change the laws in your country for the better when it comes to guns.

    2. I pray you’re correct Joanna but I won’t rest assured until I see real laws enacted. By “real” I mean laws with teeth that actually address the problem. It’s obvious that mentally ill people shouldn’t have guns. But what’s the definition? It’s obvious that mass shooters will plead mental illness, isn’t that too late? The point is that no one needs semiautomatic weapons and bullets. We just don’t. And yet there are hundreds of thousands already owned. And when there is even a hint of new legislation sales go up... dramatically. The government needs to outlaw these weapons once and for all, offer a buy back, and prosecute anyone who doesn’t abide with the law. That is “real.” Anything else is BS.

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
