Biological Sex – a political landmine

There re those, and for awhile I was one, who say biological sex doesn’t exist. Supporting this is the reality that most of your body couldn’t care one fig what your chromosomes say.

Othering

I’ve been through this with several different women. They look for reasons that labelling me as a woman is wrong. The arguments are familiar, so I’ll be brief about the arguments and answers.

Let’s not even start with birth certificates and the issues there. Biological…… Continue reading The lie of biological and chromosomal sex

Parents your children need you

I made the mistake of watching a piece of Dr Phil on You Tube about a trans teen and her mom. Irritating to say the least. Where do they find these people. However, I do know that the drama I saw plays out all the time. This is in two parts. First to the parents,…… Continue reading Parents your children need you

Being Me 9/9/16

I’ve dated this because, it will become dated. I continue to take stock as things change, as I change as the people around me change, as my relationships change. Life is change, it stops when we die, and not before. I’ve spoken before about what transition is, and I emphasized the mental. I was right…… Continue reading Being Me 9/9/16
