Exciting Journey

I was reading a post today from someone who feels more comfortable with the feminine side. I was so pleased when she said that and commented on it. Self-acceptance is a very liberating experience. I don't know if my CD sister had struggles with accepting herself but the fact that she is now comfortable with the feminine is a big step.

I still get excited when I hear of someone coming to terms with who they are. I remember the day when I came out and how liberating it was. Coming out is a personal matter that each individual has decide for his/herself. It is just the start of the journey. Adventures, trials, and discoveries await us.

Dinner out

Last night I dined out with a friend at a local diner. We were discussing transgenderism and transsexualism in the bible. He wanted to get some feedback from about it. He is writing a paper about it. I did share that God loves us and that transness is in-born. My gay friend and I share many things in common; above all that we love God and the GLBT community.

My desire to share with others about transgenderism is growing stronger, especially in the religious and evangelical institutions. I think that writing is one calling that I have. Have loved it since I was sixteen. I will be writing my testimony about my coming out.

Will Be Going To Future Vets Meetings As Gennee

Yesterday, I attended a meeting of my veterans group. The group is an LGBT veteran group. I was also elected treasurer. I also came dressed in drab. They have seen me dressed as Gennee. Well when I came to the meeting the president asked how come I wasn't dressed? I had thought about it but wasn't sure. After hearing his lament, I have decided that from now on I'm going as Gennee.

I believe that this is the confirmation of what happened to me earlier in the year. I am presenting myself as a transgender woman almost regularly. This is how I feel about myself and what I am expressing. I have had two talks with my spouse in the past month and a third one is upcoming. She may not always understand but she is accepting of it to a point. I'm thankful for that.

Life does throw some curves. It's how we handle them.


Hard to believe that it's the eighth anniversary of that fateful Tuesday morning. How we live life has changed forever. I was supposed to have been in the first tower that was hit at precisely the same time. I was delayed because I needed some equipment. After both towers fell, this event is forever eched into my conscience.

Today we pause to remember those who were lost. Let's remember the unsung heroes who helped however they could. Let's pray that nothing like this ever happens again.

Be who you are. Let no one define who you are. Be happy about
who you are.

Is It Jealousy? Part 2

When it was revealed to me that I was a crossdresser I had the choice to deny that I was one or embrace it. After several weeks of being in denial, I finally embraced who I was. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have been liberated, completed, and at peace.

I was now part of a group of people that I knew practically nothing about. Now I see that this was a part of God's plan for me. I love transgender people with all my heart. I am reaching out anyway I can and sharing that God loves us as we are.

Another area of my life that has changed is the way I study scripture. I mentioned in the last post that the bible has been used to discriminate against us. Certain scriptures are used to justify that discrimination. This erroneous assumption has made me study and delve into what scripture actually means. Factors such as the messenger, the people spoken to, and the religious and social climate are a few things that MUST be taken into consideration. Also with science, psychology, and archaeology, so much more is known about gender identity, genetics, hormones, etc.

It was once said that Christianity is a thinking person's religion, and it is. Blanket statements do not answer the complex questions people ask today. Scripture says nothing against transgenderism, homosexuality, and lesbianism. I know that you CAN be transgender and Christian. I have seen God's hand in the lives of gay, lesbian, bi, and queer people also.

I don't hate those who are against us. I just pray that those folks in these camps would acknowledge who they are and that God loves them that way. The self loathing will give way to real liberation and peace.

Is It Jealousy?

I red an article the other day about a 'pastor' who believes that gay and lesbian people should be killed. I'm pretty he feels the same about transgender folks, too. He's concerned about homosexuals recruiting children ( a big lie). As you have probably heard many transphobes are worried that we will attack their children if transgender people are allowed to use the bathroom according to their gender (another big lie).

I was thinking tonight and wonder if anti-lgbt groups are jealous of us? I have learned that the people who are the most vehement about denying us our rights (see Ted Haggard) are often struggling with the same issue. Why? Is it that we have chosen to live authenticly? Is it that we are making our presence felt in the political and social arenas? Is it that many of the myths many people have about transgender people are being broken down? Are they jealous that we will not hide or be ashamed anymore?

Jealousy can make people do irrational things. Sadly, many don't know why they hate us. Whenever one says the bible says it's wrong, I would ask 'show me'. I'm crazy like that I guess. The bible has been used to justified many things that are dead wrong. I'm a Christian who reads and studies scripture. One thing is consistent; God loves everyone no matter who they are. Any one who calls themseves 'Christians' and discriminates against a group of people need to examine their faith and if they are following Jesus' example.
