The Value of Transgender Sexuality

I know this blog entry will be wandering a bit off topic from the subject of atheism, but I think it plays indirectly into the larger need to express a comprehensive political and social narrative to compete with the Tea Party Glen Beck religious wacko ideology that threatens to conquer American politics. Moreover, I can't get to sleep without getting this off my chest. So here goes.Medical decisions are questions of cost/benefit analysis. There is a condition. There is a treatment. Is the…See More

My problem is that I never understood what girls and boys were necessarily supposed to do. I never fit in or behaved correctly. The biggest messup that probably saved my gender identity is not understanding the difference beyond organs. The spectrum is a funny thing like that. But I'm glad you've got it all figured out. Also, don't mind my fiance Salvatore, he's a firecracker. :)

I don't myself deal with gender identification problems. I used to identify strongly with males, even to the point I felt alien in my own body, but for some reason after I had a child and adopted Taoist views on life, I sort of let that go. I allow my masculine traits to live in harmony with my feminine ones. But I know that's not a choice for most people struggling with the problem. I am going through something myself with being underway in an official diagnosis to finally pin down that I am on the Autism spectrum, and the knowledge that there was always a reason that went unknown as to why I never fit in and never said the right thing is absolutely liberating for me. Now I feel like I can pursue anything with that knowledge behind me to back me up and get help for the problems I have. The increasing support I get from my in laws is helping as well. For me, that's my rebirth, combined with my daughter coming into the world and giving me a much more rational and gritty view of how the world works, because I need to look at it completely settled in reality to see it for what it is.

Glad that you're going the whole nine yards! When you get the money in order and get it all said and done, we want some final transformation pictures!

I was just curious, reading your story, as to whether you're going to pursue the whole nine yards of gender transformation. Do you feel 'complete' with just hormone therapy? Are you going to pursue the genital surgery as well if you haven't already? Also, I saw recently on a documentary about the trans-gendered that, for men coming out as women, there's a cosmetic surgery they can do where they make your face feminine as well--- they scrape down the bone of your chin, remove the 'square'ness of the jaw, lift the cheeks, and completely magically transform your face into that of a natural looking woman's. Would you consider that eventually as well? Glad to see you're starting off your new life, probably feels like being born for a second time!
