Re: Breakout Pop Star Kim Petras on Her Debut Single & Transgender Visibility

Jack, I have watched her over the years. She is a wonderful person and a fantastic role model. A big thrust of the transphobs these days is to stop or restrict trans treatment for the very young. The existence of a very public and successful early transitioner certainly helps to combat that. Yet I h...

Re: Women-Living Men, Men-Living Women

I have been fascinated with Native American cultures most of my life; and I have collected a few Hopi kachina dolls. But I wasn't specifically aware of the Hopi and the Navajo views on gender or social organization. Since I live practically in the backyard of those nations, and have access to many i...

Re: Lactatia - the eight year old drag queen

I saw this story on yahoo a few weeks back. Nothing gets the trans/homo phobics more worked up than a story about a child following a non gender binary path. The comment section had the usual hateful remarks. They utterly can't buy into a notion that children can be this way on their own. This is so...

Re: April has gone viral

Oh wow, it's still early here in the Western USA. I'm just drinking my coffee, and I wake up to find out I'm famous. Thanks Jack, I will try very hard not to get a big head.

Re: I'm not a feminist

I believe all social movements tend to collect pseudo dogma as they move through history. These are beliefs that become articles of faith, and to challenge them from within is viewed as heresy. We also call this "political correctness" these days. The feminist movement has collected its fair share o...

Re: Reasons for becoming a girl

It's pretty hard to be a legendary rock groupie as a guy.

Re:

Monique, What they are doing with their hips is called a "scoop" move. There are videos on how to do it on youtube. I have tried, but can't do it for more than about 15 seconds at a time. It's really rough on the lower back. The good news is that most cis women can't do it either, especially on the ...

Re:

Here's an interesting example. It's certainly sexy, but is it feminine? I could easily see Michael Jackson with a group of guys behind him, doing about 90% of these girls moves. Granted, they are scantily clad, and they are indeed whipping that hair around, but they are really bringing it, perhaps w...

Re: Two in one

Oreb, I'm trying to think of how it was for me before the last decade, and I don't fully trust my memory in that regard. I am probably seeing those things through a very different filter now. I believe my understanding of myself evolved over time, as well as the mechanisms I used to cope. By the tim...
