I'm a huge Mets fan as you can see. in this weird baseball season, there have been some surprises and disappointments.

1. San Diego Padres-playing better than expected. Can mash the ball

2. Chicago White Sox- thought they could compete. Playing well after a slow start.

3. Toronto Blue Jays- were not on my radar. Have some mashers. Decent pitching.

1. Cincinnati Reds- Thought they could be a factor. Not hitting. Outside of Sonny Gray, inconsistent pitching.

2. Washington Nationals- fell off the map. When Strasburg opted out, that was it.

3. New York Mets- maddeningly inconsistent. Very streaky bats. Lousy bullpen.

I fail to see how people can say that trans people are a threat to women and children. The right talks about treating everyone the same and yet discriminate against us. I know that my chromosomes say that I am male. There's much more to me than my chromosomes. I think, feel, chose to identify how I feel. Society cannot dictate how I or anyone else should express his/herself. 

We are of all races, genders, sexualities, and political persuasions. Maybe it was a trans or non-conforming person who said the only kind word you heard all day. They may have given you directions, made your lunch, or served you coffee. We may have created some of the things you may use. 

I wish I could have been at the Republican convention and shared my story. I may not change any minds but they will know that I'm a flesh and blood person who wants the best for everybody. My trans brothers and sisters should not be the target of wrath and murder and being made invisible. It says in the bible if one member hurts then everybody hurts. This is not conjecture but fact.

Crises are part of life. Everybody has to face them, and it doesn't make any difference what the crisis is.

When the pandemic is finally over the world will be different. I'm seeing it now. Businesses shutting down, people unemployed, and old ways of doing things forever changed. Reminds me of when computers became part of our daily lives.  

There are few constants in life and change is one of them. Social sites like Zoom have made it easier for folks to meet, work, and socialize. The downside is the lack of personal interaction with family and friends. I wonder how children are affected by this, not being able to see their friends and classmates. 

With the presidential election coming in a few moments it could be the moment of truth of where we are headed. I generally don't discuss politics on my blog but we, the people will need to decide what kind of future do we want.

When I came out I was free to be who I wanted to be. Society couldn't dictate who I suppose to be. I sought to create my own identity and I have. Each of us possesses the chance to do this. 

I don't discuss transgenderism much because I choose to live life. When certain forces say that I have to believe or look a certain way, then I have a problem with this. We come from many different political persuasions and life experiences. This is what makes life interesting. Yes, I'm transgender and queer but it's not the only aspect of my life. Identity politics has created more problems, I believe because everyone has to believe a certain way. This is something I chafed at growing up and I get chafed about it now. 

I respect each person for who they are. People will say whatever they want about me. It doesn't phase me at all.  I do and will always support the LGBTQI+ community. It's important that we respect and support one another.

The next three months will be very interesting. There are so many factions clamoring to have their positions be heard. Will anybody be listening to what the other person has to say?

Real reform comes when people's hearts are changed.

Last week I shared my story on my radio program of coming out as a crossdresser then later as transgender. As I think about it each year seems to be different from the previous one. Is it life experiences? Or realizing that the journey is continuous? Or the idea there's a lot more to me than is being revealed.

The timing of my presenting Genevieve was right. So have numerous other experiences. I embrace them and enjoy the ride.

by James Weldon Johnson

Lift every voice and sing   
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us.   
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.
Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chastening rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;   
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,   
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.

God of our weary years,   
God of our silent tears,
Thou who hast brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who hast by Thy might   
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;
Shadowed beneath Thy hand,   
May we forever stand.   
True to our God,
True to our native land.
