Text 6 Feb Hoping For Normalcy

My sister-in-law is cutting my nephew’s nails and he starts fussing, as most kids do, so she said “We have to cut your nails, you’re a boy and boys aren’t supposed to have long nails.” I must say that it has never bothered me much when people said things like this, but with my recent forray into things transgender, it made me cringe inside. Truly, I wanted to say something about it, but that’s her view and he’s her kid so there’s not really anything I COULD say. Besides, even if I did say something it would have changed nothing. She will continue to be a closed minded, uber-Christian (Seventh Day Adventist to be exact). Even if one day either of my nephews were part of a “lifestyle” that she does not agree with, I am not sure she would be willing to accept them and it. Here’s hoping they grow up to be what our society perceives to be “normal”

Text 17 Dec A Changed Mind

After having read two incredible articles this week, on the experience of two trans individuals. One a pre-op teen soon to embark on beginning the physical transformation to match her mental image of ‘self’ and the other from an amazingly beautiful post-op trans sexual woman now living as the person she always knew herself to be. We all like to believe we’re fairly open minded individuals, but when faced with something that goes completely against our social norms, we tend to fall in line with the crowd, whether quietly or with abrasiveness reminiscent of a Brillo pad is the only question. Personally I have never truly had or understood, the desire to become a gender different than the one you physically embody. Never could comprehend why someone born with a vagina insisted on people using male pronouns to identify them, and then I read those two articles this week. Today I feel that I am a better, more open-minded, and enlightened individual. These articles, together, have allowed my perspective to shift and I can now say that although I do not share the experience of these two brave individuals, I am less likely to be judgmental and will no longer take lightly, a person’s request to be referred to as a gender they might not physically inhabit.

If you also would like to be enlightened, please read the articles below:

Lost Generation.
I’m a part of Lost Generation
and I refuse to believe that
I can change the world
I realize this may be a shock but
“Happiness comes from within”
is a lie, and
“Money will make me happy”
So in thirty years I’ll tell my children
They are not the most important thing in my life
My employer will know that
I have my priority straight because
Work
Is more important than
Family
I tell you this
Once upon a time
Families stay together
But this will not be true in my era
This is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
Thirty years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce
I do not concede that
I will live in a country of my own making
In the future
Environmental destruction will be the norm
No longer can it be said that
My peers and I care about this earth
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It is foolish to presume that
There is hope
And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.

Text 21 Oct ROFLMAO!!!

A woman takes a lover home during the day, while her husband is at work. Unbeknownst to her, her 9 year old son was hiding in the closet. 
Her husband comes home unexpectedly, so she puts the lover in the closet with the little boy.
The little boy says, “Dark in here.”
The man says, “Yes it is.”
Boy- “I have a baseball.”
Man- “That’s nice.”
Boy- “Want to buy it?”
Man- “No, thanks.”
Boy- “My dad’s outside.”
Man- “OK, how much?”
Boy- “$250.”
In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the mom’s lover are in the closet together.
Boy- “Dark in here.”
Man- “Yes, it is.”
Boy- “I have a baseball glove.”
The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, “How much?”
Boy- “$750.”
Man- “Fine.”

A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove. Let’s go outside and toss the baseball back and forth.”
The boy says, “I can’t. I sold them.”
The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?”
The son says “$1,000.”
The father says, “That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that. 
That is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”
They go to church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door.
The boy says, “Dark in here.”
The priest says, “Don’t start that sh*t again.”

Not only is he a cat (who are naturally HANs), he is a cat named after the devil. He really has nothing to gain from doing evil stuff to Cinderella, but that doesn’t stop him from tracking mud on the floor she just painstakingly cleaned or trying to stop the mice…
