How to use this site.
The default Table of Contents listing at the side bar shows only the latest 150 of my posts. Other earlier posts are still available, they’re still here, they simply do not appear in that default Table of Contents list.
I shall attempt to keep you current by listing all compositions here at this Table of Contents page: Title, URL, and a brief description of that post.
Articles are listed in reverse chronological order, recent article first.
‘Happy Father’s Day’
Here’s my ‘Happy Father’s Day’ to what father I had. I have no proof who was my actual biological father and otherwise do not know his true identity, so I shall do my best to that man whom I did call ‘Father’, for better and worse.
‘We are ‘Pulse’!’
Each person at ‘Pulse’ had family and friends and lives that we must acknowledge and recognise. ‘There but for the grace of God go I.’ Any one of us could have been there – any one of us might be there at the next attack taken against us. All pales.
The news reported that a New York City-born man of Afghan immigrant parents attacked a Florida ‘Pride’ event. He shot and murdered at least 50 innocent people who were simply enjoying a weekend with friends.
‘My Own ‘Garden Party’ Of Excuses’
Excuses. Each one valid with each of you going through your Transition. Or maybe sputtering at your starting line. It is absolutely FRUSTRATING! Isn’t it. You have every effort to progress forward, yet you remain either stuck or in reverse. AGH! Been there, done that – SO MANY TIMES. My absolute and total empathies with each and every one of you who I find posting at your message boards as well as in spirit for those who did not post for whatever your reason.
A person going through Transition will encounter their end stage when others no longer perceive them as their originating person, but as their target identity.
In other words, for me, I went from my male presence to female presence. People did not accept my male persona at the end of my male presence because I appeared too feminised to be accepted as male. I ‘Failed’ being ‘Male’.
‘In My Life …’
‘All the world’s a stage, we are all merely players.’
Allow for an extended accounting all in one place.
These are among the influential dramatis personae of my life.
‘Trans* Spectrum of Arizona In Their Own’
Fliers, business cards, reference material from a Trans support group.
‘Larnin’ A Thing Or Two’
My on-air debate with Former Representative Joe Walsh (R, Illinois) on his radio talk show.
His issue (5 Apr 16) was the hot topic of Transsexual people using the facilities of their identification, high school students staying to their own.
His callers raised strong objections that no high school ‘male’ has a purpose entering the ‘female’ facility any more than a high school ‘female’ entering the ‘male’ facility.
‘A Few Thousand More Words’
‘One picture is worth a thousand words.’
Enjoy a few thousand more words today in ‘artsy fartsy’ style without reading my silly text words.
‘April Fools Day’
Let’s look inside a mixed bag of fruits, nuts, and bolts. Experiencing the medical community has been mixed, the documentary and legal community has been crushing me.
‘Leap Year Day’
Leap Year Day – this in ‘The Year of the Monkey’. Shine on!
To be both Inter-sexed and Trans-sexed is both a curse and a blessing. Perhaps my life would have been better if my parents allowed me to Transition as a child; there were many points in time when that change would have been seamless. On the other hand, I did get a chance to experience my life as a sex that was not me – and learn from that experience.
‘Walking Through Time Down Memory Lane’
I found an older article at Susan’s that piqued my interest:
‘A Short History of Gender Dysphoria’
It sure was quite a walk through my personal ‘memory lane’. I share among my own remembrances as well as some of the recent history that I did not know beforehand.
‘Farewells Are Not Forever’; ‘Re-visit Vestiges of Vestigial Cells’
My fond farewells to my new friend Lily Qian. She departed on her flight to her home-town at China that morning at 5 am.
The possibility, one day, that Transsexual people would have their full desired anatomy of their identified sex.
‘And Now Something You’ll Really Like’
My blathering – this time a snippet of something I researched and wrote several years ago about children and birth order. This came about to my mind as my sister attacked me again – in true fashion of the ‘Cane and Abel Syndrome’ – so much that she has no realisation what she is doing. She is oblivious to her own behaviour so ingrained into her first-born privilege psyche.
‘The Year of Not Living Dangerously’
If someone told me at the beginning of 2015 what that year would have been, I would have never believed it.
2014 was among my worst years. Criminals broke into my home, stole most of my valued personal possessions, and ransacked my remaining belongings. The damages and losses were massive – especially the irreplaceable items of very personal and intimate nature.
‘Blog This: President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and 50+ Years Later’
My essay regarding the history and the assassination of President Kennedy.
‘A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words’
Here is a post worth hundreds of thousands of words and lives, a selection of information provided by the local Phoenix-area Trans community.
Take advantage of opportunities at your home community. If none are available, ask these entities how you can activate your own.
Allow these flyers to speak for themselves.
‘Mommy?, Not The Mommy?’
Who is my real biological mother? Maybe I found my mom quite by mistake, hidden in plain sight, and not so far away. Or maybe not; maybe wishfull mis-perception.
‘Grow in a Petri Dish; Grow Your Own’
Yep. It’s possible to restore vestigial reproductive anatomy cells rather than go through surgery or transplant.
We can use stem cells to grow vestigial Mullerian Duct or Wolffian Duct systems in, correspondingly, M-F or F-M patients. It is a dream of many, if not most, Transsexual people (both M-F and F-M) to have the actual, full anatomy, not the limited GCS / SRS results. I did research and independent study at both University of Utah Medical School (1981 – 1985) and University of Arizona Medical School (1985 – 1986). After all, we are all developed from female in utero and it is the spurt of testosterone that separates female and male at the end of the third month.
‘Blog This: Pope Francis’
My essay, originally published at Thom Hartmann’s web-site, about the new Catholic Pope.

Wow! I had no expectation that I would have ever published a hundred essays, let alone more than 150 esssays, going towards 200. Thank you, Dear Reader, for following these exploits during these past several years.
