before it's too late

You either believe that you are your brother’s keeper, or you don’t. Unencumbered free market capitalism as a model isn’t working in the United States as proven by the increasing wealth going into smaller and smaller hands effectively leading to slow social decay.

Anyone who still believes in Reagan era trickledown economics hasn’t been paying close attention because one key element has been left out of the discussion: human greed. The presumption was that companies out of the goodness of their hearts would employ American workers and pay them decent wages which has been proven to be false. Instead, they set up financial structures to enrich their investors which resulted in global outsourcing of materials and services. Think of a blue-collar industry that used to exist in the United States and most of them are gone.

It didn't always used to be this way.

Republicans are now well on their way to dismantling their own society by taking away employment and wages from the very same people they purport to defend namely the hard-working American red state family which today is making due with increasingly lower wages. By shifting the discourse away from the true problems and demonizing the evil Mexican hoards at the gates, they manage to fool these people into voting against their own best interests.

At its current pace, America is probably about 20 years ago from social implosion and unless something is done to reverse the trend nothing will stop it. Once the bottom rung of your society has fallen into destitute poverty you no longer have a social fabric to rely on and you risk upheaval in the streets. All nations have choices and now is the time to make one. The free market capitalist experiment begun in the 1980’s has failed and it’s time to create a new one before it is truly too late.

You can drown government in the bathtub, just be prepared to see your society go down the drain along with it.

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...


my last post

This will be my last 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 are very …

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…
