01) I Want My Sex Back. Transgender people who regretted changing sex


“Billy, Rene and Walt were born male, but they all felt uncomfortable with their sex. So they underwent sex reassignment surgery, believing it would end their distressing condition, which is known as gender dysphoria – feeling uncomfortable with your birth sex. However, becoming female only brought problems, disappointment and regret.”

A few thoughts…

…Gender dysphoria is far more biologically complex, than “someone touched me when I was below a certain age, so I decided I didn’t want to be that gender anymore”…

That rational is strange…

…And there is something additional and distinct going on, with anyone who dislikes their sex gender so much…that they want to stop being it…to the extent of seeking surgery.

Maybe the unwanted touching was a catalyst to start thinking more about it…or, maybe it was an excuse, giving oneself permission to arrive at a conclusion?…

I think…there can be a number of factors, as to why someone might want to physically be the opposite gender.

A big reason…and a tragic reason…is because they simply don’t like themselves…and they think physical changes to their body, will change this.

…It’s a psychological issue.

It should be noted…this documentary focuses on three older transgender people…They had their operations done, well over twenty years ago…My understanding, is that advancements have been made in making things look more natural…I’m not sure about total functionality, though.

…The one admits he cannot orgasm…That’s unfortunate.

American Horror Story Apocalypse…


Date: September 12, 2018

This is a graphic used to depict the new season of American Horror Story…And I hope it’s on the cover of the DVD, when it hits store shelves…It’s nice.

But I cant help to mention…this androgynous kid is not wearing any pants!…or underwear?…

…You can clearly see a bare pubic area…though the bellybutton is absent…

This is probably all CGI…I just find the choice of a naked kid, to be interesting…a little bit ballsy.

Circumcision does not affect HIV in U.S. men: study…

01) Circumcision does not affect HIV in U.S. men: study

“(Reuters) – Circumcision may reduce a man’s risk of infection with the AIDS virus by up to 60 percent if he is an African, but it does not appear to help American men of color, U.S. researchers reported on Monday.

Black and Latino men were just as likely to become infected with the AIDS virus whether they were circumcised or not, Greg Millett of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found.

“We also found no protective benefit for a subset of black MSM (men who have sex with men) who also had recent sex with female partners,” Millett told reporters in a telephone briefing.”

People with a conspiracy mentality show less of a bias in favor of historical experts, study finds…

01) People with a conspiracy mentality show less of a bias in favor of historical experts, study finds

“Is a book by a professional historian more trustworthy than a YouTube video created by an anonymous person? If you’re high in the personality trait known as conspiracy mentality, you might not see much of a difference.

New research suggests that people with a conspiratorial mindset tend to view experts and non-experts as equally credible sources of historical information. The study was published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.

“The very idea for the study was born in a joint discussion with my co-author Olivier Klein at a conference of social psychological representations of history. We were listening to talks about all kinds of construals, biases and narratives about what happened in the ancient or not so ancient past,” said study author Roland Imhoff of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.”

Why Does Laurie Penny Hate Steve Bannon?…

01) Why Does Laurie Penny Hate Steve Bannon?


“Why, he’s a fascist, you see. Everyone is, nowadays.”

Ever since I first discovered Laurie Penny…I was of the opinion, that she embodies what is wrong within “feminism”…as well as what is wrong within “progressivism”…

…Though, I’d like to distinguish that a lot of feminists and progressives dislike her, with a passion…So, it’s not right to hold her up as being an icon of these movements.

Steve Bannon?…

…I don’t really even know much about him…and this is the first time I’ve watched the clips made available, in this video…I’m positive I’ve read an article interview of him, however…But I have no real familiarity with him, or his past.

He does come off reasonable, here…

…I do know, however, that he pushed Donald Trump to the white house…a clear disaster, long before he got elected…

I don’t automatically buy into the “racist” claims…because I understand how terms like “racist” have been bastardized and debased from their traditional meaning, for the purpose of dishonestly diminishing other people.

…And I see how they use these terms, to de-platform people, and manipulate would be interviewers…

If you have the integrity of demanding to “hear it from the horses mouth”…you get called “a sympathizer”…or treated as if you were “an equivalent” to the person you are talking with…based on their description of said person…not based on said person’s honest character assessment or history.

Getting back to the Trump presidency, and the Mike Pence political advancement that came with it…

…Even I had a window of glee, when I shockingly realized that Hillary Clinton had been defeated…But Donald Trump was never any kind of “win”, for the country…

…Donald Trump [and Mike Pence] is nothing more than an ever more extreme swing, in a fight trying to remove control of the country from the hands of the establishment…

…We are nowhere even close to “the promised land”…It is just the crazy train speeding up…rollicking and teetering ever closer, to slipping off the tracks.

This is really an ugly, harrowing time in U.S. politics…and Donald Trump has shown himself to be an incompetent fraud, who’s quickly backtracked on most of his meaningful campaign promises…And if anything happens to him…we get Pence dumped onto us…That theocratic nut, should be nowhere near any high political position.

I know this might burst some people’s bubble…but we are not better off with Trump as president…We’re still being dragged down what is, essentially, the same road…there’s just a lot of different posturing, and “dog n pony shows” going on, to make it seem like things have changed.

We will not be better off in the wake of Trump’s presidency, either…We’ll likely be worse off for it…in more ways than one…This country is more polarized than I have ever seen it…and most politicians seem to be exploiting this…They’re pitting us against each other, and ramping up the social disdain…and anger…

If anything at all good comes out of the Trump presidency…it will be a rise of the sane people…the rational people, who are sick and tired of watching the political system we are forced to live under, endlessly jerked around by the extremes.

For once in my lifetime…I would like to see the U.S. have a political system, which is honest and treats us all like human beings.

…How about that, for a political platform?
