A neat and tidy package

I think I have said here before that AGP worked for some older guilt ridden trans people because it took responsibility away from them. If something outside of themselves forced them to transition then they could remain blameless. I had to chew on that one for a while but then it made sense if you grew up during a time when doing something like that was unimaginable.

We know better today of course which is why the youth of the trans community aren't buying. But for those born in the 60's or before it was a workable narrative that could explain away their actions in a neat and tidy package regardless of whether the concrete proof existed or not. In other words, it was a strange kind of vindication.

  1. Part of my dysphoria is wrapped up in a neat and tidy package. So annoying, especially in this heat. :-)
