when your ego is bigger than your brain

Trump is such a monumental knucklehead that in front of rolling cameras he makes a fool of himself in his inability to comprehend that a memorandum of understanding is the same thing as a binding contract. It is explained to him that this is the case at the world trade level but to no avail.

But since his ego will not allow someone else to possibly be more versed in a subject, he would rather appear to know what he is talking about when he clearly does not. Flustered, his trade negotiator finally gives up and calls it a contract just to appease and shut him up and what looks embarrassing to the rest of us, in his mind smells like a victory.

It boggles the mind and you know this will be told as a great victory at some future rally.

I give up...

  1. I guess your use of MoU’s is much different than mine. I spent 30 years in the semiconductor industry and dealt with all sorts of MoUs, between partners, supplier/customer, and others. MoUs were never binding. They spelled out the high points of the deal subject to our adding the T’s, C’s, and other details to what would become the binding agreement. It was more like a way of creating and documenting a common vision of the deal but all parties could withdraw or whatever. After all, some get stuck on those fine points, or, when others in the organization weigh in we’d learn practical realities that got in the way.

    In no way am I here defending Trump. We both agree that he’s a dangerous idiot.

    1. What's really annoying about this guy is that he has trade experts who know better around him and he has to play the oneupmanship game rather than defer to them. He ends up looking like a blockhead in the process and is too egotistical to realize it...

epilogue

While this blog is most definitely over, I wanted to explain that part of the reason is that it was getting in the way of writing my next book called "Notes, Essays and Short Stories from the North" which will combine philosophy, trans issues, my observations on life, some short fiction and things that have happened to me over my life and continue to (both trans related and not).

When it is complete I will post the news here and will be happy to send you a free copy upon request in either PDF or eBook format. All I ask is that you provide me with some feedback once you're done reading it.

I'm only in the early stages so it will be a while.

Be well all of you....

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 that it …

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 are …
