Jane Magazine features Raci Ignacio

Raci Ignacio of TransGeneration is featured in the May 2007 issue of Jane Magazine as one of their 30 Inspirational Women under 30. Raci’s quote: “I became more confident about my identity after TransGeneration. It enlarged my support group, including family members who rarely spoke to me when I first started transitioning. Now I go […]

Is he or isn’t she?

The other day, while waiting on the platform for the PATH train, a young Chinese woman approached me and asked for directions. I helped out and as we were both going in the same direction, I told her I’d let her know which stop was the one she wanted. We got on the train and […]

The Impossible Human

This is sort of an adjunct to the previous post on respect: similar theme, slightly different take.

Respect?

Coming out as trans practically guarantees one a loss of status as a viable person and therefore a loss of respect as a person. We become something ‘unreal’ or ‘impossible’ – we have every aspect of our being called into question – we become ‘incompetent’, no longer able to do tasks or make decisions we […]

To Whom It May Concern

I realize that this is all a bit strange to you and perhaps even a bit silly at times. I assure you, it is nonetheless real – despite my inability to articulate it with any degree of accuracy. I have lost count of the number of different analogies I’ve used – all which fall far […]

Dissociated Knowledge

One of my favorite authors is H. P. Lovecraft – that he and I share the same birthday is all the better. 🙂 Submitted for your consideration is the following from one of his best known short stories, The Call of Cthulhu: The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of […]

Intergenderism

And here I thought people didn’t read my old website… Kris over at Zaadz seems to have taking a liking to the construct of Intergenderism – with which I came up (so to speak) almost eight years ago. Go give hir blog a read. You’ll be glad you did! 🙂

OMG! (giggle, snicker) Look over there…

Last night, my wife and I took my eldest daughter and some of her friends out for her birthday. We went to a movie and afterwards, we all walked over to Cold Stone for ice cream. I get uncomfortable going there at times when I know it will be packed with teenagers – especially girls. […]

Plain and Simple it Ain’t

The past year or so has been an interesting one. Not unlike Zarathustra coming down from his cave, it was time I once again join those from whom I had consciously separated myself years earlier. I wanted to both share whatever insights I might have gained and to learn from others. I wanted to (re)connect […]
