Why the Societal Rejection?

This one is unfortunately easy to answer. Transgender people threaten models which are supposed to be immovable. According to most organized religions, God created man and woman and nothing in between which might be a nice idea except that it doesn't fit the biological reality of permutations and anomalies we observe every single day in nature. While intersex people are one such obvious example of the possible randomness inherent in any process, transgender people are less believed due to the meagher amount of hard science we currently possess about the human brain.

Hence, the door is left wide open for detractors of all shapes and sizes. The obvious statement that no one wants to be different and suffer does not play well among these true believers of dogmas which cannot allow for our existence for fear other of their dictates fall into question. Here human ignorance and stupidity once again supercede reality.

Besides the religious objections, there are also those factions who see us as deliberately usurping the role of genetic women in society which is clearly absurd. There is no agenda for world domination but instead an earnest attempt to lead lives which honour one's true identity. Not surprisingly, all this has meant a difficult uphill struggle which continues to this day and where every hard-earned victory is met with virulent resistance by those who would refuse us even the most basic of dignities. The world is unfortunately replete with vile idiots who, due to their own massive insecurities, have nothing better to do than meddle into how other people lead their lives.

Thanks to more education, today's trans kids should have better childhoods than we did and their lives kicked off with more options than we ever had. If you happen to be born trans, your life will involve going against the current from the outset and these kids need all the help they can get most particularly if they come from deeply religious households where there will be no accommodating anything not aligning with a dogma which often has little to do with God's love for all creation.

Remember that it is not we who need repairing, it is society.

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
