all that we share

My friend Jack Molay sent me this short video which I am certain all of you will all appreciate. Its simple message is that there is more that unites us as humans than separates us.

Yesterday, 6 muslim worshippers were gunned down in a mosque in Quebec City and although the identity of the assailants is not yet known, what matters is that it happened in this horrible environment of fear we are creating.

The pot is boiling over and identity politics is beginning to take hold. So while President man-child spends his time tweeting inanities, authorities from 16 U.S. airports denounced the unlawful detention of people from 7 Muslim nations as un-American and unconstitutional. Welcome to Steve Bannon's white nationalist America.

I think we are going to need to reinforce the message contained in this video all the more...

  1. There is much hope for peace and understanding in the world. The adversity to it right now will be an incentive for more to say, "We see how much pain you feel Donald (Vlad ... etc.). Don't be afraid. Hating is not the way. Let us show you."

    1. We certainly do. Trump's ego is spending his political capital at an unsustainable rate stupidly which, I predict, will generate a groundswell of the people (even Republicans) who will no longer be able to avoid recognizing him for the clown that he is.

      In my earlier post I forgot to give my concern and support about the murders in Quebec. I am at a loss for words that express my deep feelings of pain and helplessness.

the pseudoscience behind gender dysphoria

The real science as to what causes gender dysphoria still awaits.

Harry Benjamin was on to something except he didn’t have the scientific evidence to back up his suspicions hence, like a true scientist, he negated to draw conclusions. His hunch, based on treating so many patients over his lifetime, was that one is born with a predisposition to be gender dysphoric.

However, with inconclusive brain scans and no DNA marker (as of yet) we are left with believing the word of people who need help and only want to lead happy and productive lives.

The best we have been able to muster since Benjamin's death in 1986 was to amass statistics on who gets a boner imagining themselves as a woman which is in equal parts pathetic and disappointing. For this is not really science at all but is instead playing with interview data that doesn't point to anything definitive or conclusive. I have dealt with this problem at great length in my blog.

The whole thing started with Kurt Freund's obses…

looking past cross gender arousal

Jack’s latest Crossdreamers post got me thinking about cross gender arousal and how it could be avoided; also whether it even matters. This with particular focus on the inability to relate of someone on the outside looking in.

You see, sexuality is a very complicated thing to begin with and when you then add gender identity ambiguity it becomes a recipe to really confuse someone.

So imagine that you are a little boy who identifies as a girl but then along comes puberty and short circuits everything by having the sex you identify with also be the sex you are attracted to. For in essence this is what happens to all all male to female gender dysphoric trans persons who are attracted to women.

So I ask myself: can I imagine a scenario where this inherent contradiction would not produce sexual confusion? The answer is that I cannot.

I am in the unique position, like many of you, to have experienced an early identification with the feminine become sexualized later on. This brought confusion…

understanding the erotic component

I have written about crossed wires before in two separate posts. The idea is that one cannot pass through puberty and the development of sexual feelings for females and not have your pre-existing gender dysphoria be impacted through your psychosexual development. The hormone responsible for your libido is testosterone which is present in much stronger concentration in males and is why gynephilics are most likely to experience erotic overtones as the conflict between romantic external feelings and their pull towards the feminine become permanently intertwined.

Because I came from a deeply religious family where sex was not discussed much at all, I grew up with little access to information and was very much ignorant of matters relating to the subject. With no firsthand experience in intercourse until I married I was then faced with the reality that my ability to perform sexually had been deeply impacted by my dysphoric feelings. This began years of turmoil and self-deprecating thoughts …
