we saw this coming

It just keeps getting worse.

Trump and his cronies have now effectively blocked any new transgender recruits from serving in the US military for reasons that are entirely nebulous since there is nothing physically or mentally wrong with us. This is undoubtedly coming from Mike Pence and his regressive evangelical base who know nothing about this subject other than we don’t meet their twisted standards for normal.

The recent appointment of Brent Kavanaugh to the Supreme court virtually assured that decisions would start going the way of the far right and now we’re witnessing it. Until the lower courts decide on the unconstitutionality of this ban, Trump will feed his base some raw meat to chew on. This and the wall will just be more distractions from the fact that Trump is at once an inept simpleton and a crook, but it will take time to do anything about his crimes; particularly with a Republican senate in power.

For the time being at least, the United States takes another big step backwards into the 19th century.

But I will just say this: given a choice between a guy who was excused from service pretending to have bone spurs and Kirsten Beck, I know who I'd pick to be the more effective soldier.

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…
