Whether you believe transgender men are men or transgender women are women you cannot deny the basic fact that we exist.   You may not like that a group of people exist.  You may disagree with how a group of people either choose or are compelled by their specific biology to live.  You may feel disgust or disdain.  You may not and have a right to not like anyone you want but it is an observational fact of life transgender people exist.  It is an observational fact of life that some transgender people take medical steps to change themselves in every technologically available way.  

Does 0.4% chocolate ice cream and 99.6% vanilla not make vanilla? What Senator Warren does not get is that her ancestors did not pay the price of being American Indian in the last 200 + years at least.   That is why it is bogus for her to claim that identity.

Alessandro Strumia, needs to have had a five minute talk with the late great Ben Barres.  Dr Barres was fond of telling a story where he heard how much his work was “better than your sister’s”.   Ben was a female to male transguy.   For those unfamiliar with the lingo started out a woman … then transitioned to living as a man.    This is a clumsy and non-PC way to put it I know… but when preaching to people one must speak their language.   Transgender scientist can tell you all about how different gender-based stereotypes and assumptions affect us.

Gender critical feminism being used as a smoke screen for anti-transgender views is  a direct consequence of the transgender community abandoning the notion of brain sex.  Brain sex was a testable hypothesis that has since been tested out as true.  Yet so much activism has been built on gender identity.  Two ideas which are based on social realities gender roles and markers of identity.  This left a way for hateful people who call themselves feminist to sound reasonable. 


The Transsexual Brain Is Real DEAL WITH IT.


Dear Mr Musk, you should hire me to fly Yusaku Maezawa to the Moon and back.  Especially if you want to connect to the past and future history of space flight.  I am a fully qualified scientist with a MS in Physics and a thesis in Astronomy meeting all the basic NASA requirements for an astronaut candidate.  More importantly there are historical reasons, of place and person, that would make you want to hire me as your chauffeur to the stars.

You could hire and probably have hired veteran NASA astronauts and some are training for Crewed Dragon… but not for the BFS.  

Dilation, the most misunderstood aspect of transsexual life.  Common misconceptions and vicious lies say that it is to keep open an oozing bleeding wound that will scab over and heal up like a cut without dilation.    NO.  It is painful ….it can be.  It is sexual and nasty… NO!    In this blog and the below video recorded a week ago I will give my personal observations of it.
