Common Cause

Well, this will be short I think. Who would have predicted common cause between some conservative Republican Senators, especially with Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) as one of them. A conservative for conservatives. It is not hard to see why virtually all Democratic senators delivered a big thumbs down to one of the singularly most politically stupid,…… Continue reading Common Cause

A Response about Biology

A response I gave on Quora to Why is physical biology not enough to determine gender in regards to gender issues there are some excellent other answers there. I encourage anyone interested to follow the link.

Still, I knew from ads on TLC that the new season started…… Continue reading Vaginoplasty

Post transition life

Transition can be an exciting time, as well as a very scary one.

For many that never ends, but it has slowed way…… Continue reading Post transition life
