The Trans Issue

Where have all the cross dressers gone?

Back in the day, people, and by people I mean men, would dress up in women’s clothes for the purpose of sexual stimulation, and be considered perverse. Today, people of both sexes can take hormone shots, take on the secondary sexual characteristics of the opposite sex, dress as a member of the opposite sex, and be considered a member of a protected group. This has caused a big dilemma for us: what bathroom facilities (toilets and showers) should they use. And today, May 26, 2016, various levels of our government are using our money to sue each other over bathroom choice.

You might ask why we are not simply using the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy used by the military for gays and lesbians for so long, but when a boy with a vagina shows up in the boys’s shower room, people are going to ask.

There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex.” – Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. This statement shows that AG Lynch is not on top of the issue at all. “Gender” refers to the psychological orientation of the individual. “Sex” refers to genitalia. A transgender person is someone who has secondary attributes of their opposite sex. A transsexual person is someone who has also adopted – through surgery – the primary attributes of their opposite sex.

Federal     The problem here is that Obama wants to be sensitive to transGENDERS by allowing them to use the toilets and showers of the sex with which they identify, which would allow girls with penises to use the girls’ facilities and boys with vaginas to use the boys’ facilities. This is just plain stupid law.

State     Requiring people to use the bathroom facilities of their birth sex is equally stupid. This would put transSEXUAL girls with vaginas in the boys’ facilities and transSEXUAL boys with penises in the girls’ facilities. Also, stupid law.

Reason     To be as sensitive as possible to all concerned,  the bathroom people use should correspond to their actual genitalia, not what they would prefer or the genitalia selected for them by mom and dad.

The dilemma we are facing is actually – old person’s opinion warning – the result of bad medicine. When a person wants to change sexes, doctors require them to adopt with the assistance of hormone treatments the secondary sexual characteristics of  their chosen sex before they can transition to their chosen sex through surgery. The purpose of this medical policy is to verify that the individual really wants a sex change.But this policy puts the cart before the horse. It encourages the growth in numbers of she-males and he-females, people like “call me Caitlin” nee Bruce Jenner, who walk around as women but maintain their birth genitalia and can revert back to their birth sex simply by discontinuing their hormone treatments. Is this real commitment? The kind of commitment that warrants the intervention of the President of the US of A?

Given what has happened, a better medical policy would be to require the person to give up their birth genitalia first. Want to be a guy? Gotta have a penis. A girl? Have a vagina under that skirt.

Inverting current medical policy regarding sexual transitions would eliminate the transgender class, replacing it with a larger transsexual class. It would also eliminate the source of AG Lynch’s gender confusion. And it would reduce the number of she-males and he-females that are really the source of the gender dilemma we are facing today.


Fed Up with Corruption

There was a link today on Yahoo News to an article in Forbes Magazine describing illegal payments from the Obama administration to insurance companies that support ACA or ObamaCare. The illegal transfer of funds compensated insurance companies for covering the previously uninsured who, because of their various medical conditions, incur huge medical costs. The payment was 3.5 billion (with a “b”) dollars.

So what else is new?

The Obama administration lied to us about the costs and benefits of ACA in order to gain our support, or at least prevent us from wanting to put the kibosh on it.

This news follows on the heals of the recent disclosure that the Obama administration lied to us about the Iran Nuclear Arms deal, paying off (corrupting if not already corrupted) news media such as the once-credible National Public Radio.

We would not have known about the Fed’s deception had administrative sources not disclosed it to us. Not whistle-blowers, mind you, braggers spilled the bean, announcing arrogantly and pridefully that they had pulled the wool over our eyes, duping a doped stupid population.

Also announced this week is the addition to President Obama’s Legacy of having ended two wars. If not the two wars he had to immediately start up again, having foolishly and against reasoned advice ended prematurely, we don’t know which two wars he is alleged to have ended.

When President Obama began his eight year long campaign for office and his Presidential Legacy, he told us he wanted to fundamentally change the Federal Government. Now we know what he meant. He wanted to change it from one ruled by law and based on reasonable efforts to be transparent and maintain its integrity to one ruled by one person’s megalomania and the lies, deceptions, and corruption needed to support him.

One man’s dreams are a nation’s nightmares.

But he sure gives a nice speech.

Hillary Clinton is the perfect choice of a successor to President Obama. Will we elect her?



One Geezer’s Rants

Interesting. To get to this first blog, I accessed a link to Remove the “/” and you are left with compost. Perhaps that is what this is, after all. Verbal compost. A bad thing? But if something beneficial grows from it, then it is a good thing.

I like reading the Washington Post, referred to familiarly as WaPo, and Yahoo news. I use Yahoo for research on a Health Trends class I teach to survivors of brain injuries. On Yahoo I learned about Neuroscience News where I get a lot of what I teach to the brain injured about their brains and how they function – and dysfunction.

I like both sources of suspect Internet information because they let you talk back. I avoid sites, like the Fox News web sites, that do not allow you to talk back. It is possible that no one reads what I write there, though I do get notified from time to time by Yahoo that someone has liked or disliked my comments. Validation. Someone sees and agrees. Rare. Especially on the WaPo where there seems to be a cadre of commentators who largely rant at each other or at tangential topics, rather than at the matter at hand.

So when an offer arrived in my email box to create a blog on WordPress, I thought I would for a while at least join the immense world of bloggers, and record my rants on WordPress rather than on WaPo or Yahoo. After all, it was a free offer. Now normally, when I accept such an offer, I forget the exact password and ID I enter on the registration form. But this morning, when I was asked to confirm my  WordPress account, I found I had written down my ID and password and took the time to confirm the account.

To follow will be my various rants, redirected from WaPo and Yahoo News to here. Compost. We’ll see if anything grows in it.
