A topic that is too judgMENTAL ::... transgenders

Too few role models:  SOURCE

A question was posted on QUORA and I felt compelled to respond:

Why don't transgender people use the restrooms corresponding to their genitals to try and end the needless transgender bathroom controversy?

It is none of our business.

This reminds me of things we have to struggle with growing up::…. what IS our identity? What IS our moral standard? Should others have THE right to determine what is best for US?

Almost ALL of us in the age of inBETWEENers (born 1960 to 1965, neither Baby Boomers, Generation X, nor Millennials) must REMEMBER what the biggest questions of our day were? If others forgot, I can share with you: Do you or don’t you circumcise your newborn son?

Remember that? I do. Is it necessary or more to do with mental well being our our son: likeness to daddy. It was something I read avidly read about because sometimes reading becomes “PEACE of MIND”. In this instance, we were RESPONSIBLE for making decisions for our children.

However, this topic is a NONtopic because it is simply none of our business. If it is not us, nor our child, we don’t belong. I, for uniquely one, could not imagine the struggle this mere question asks ~ it is SO very judgMENTAL on so many fronts. Nor is it a practical questions.  Why? Girls bathrooms in elementary school have stalls. Even at swimming pools and gym lockers: there are closed stalls.

If we don’t make a BIG deal out of this question, then the persons it affects are free to chose the best way that puts them at PEACE. To imagine what it is like to be DIFFERENT when the word itself claims: “Freak”! That is so far from the truth and requires each of us to delve deep inside our humanity humanitarianism by avoiding an opinion on what is personal and none of our business.

The worst thing you can do is underscore the misconception that there is something wrong with a transgender. Especially when each one of us have our own skeletons we hide.

On the practical, logical side. If a boy that identifies as a girl, looks and acts like a girl, feels more comfortable with girls, rather than boys, goes into a girls washroom, they can simply go into the bathroom stall. To say that everyone bares down to the birthday suits multiple times a day, more likely a month, or more….. there are girls that are shy and will go into the bathroom stall to change into swimsuit or gym clothes. Which one is different than the next, is for each individual to decide, not anyone else’s claim to identification.

There is a solution. Certainly a priority would be to STOP talking, covering, writing, posting, chatting, murmuring about this topic as though there is something wrong with a transgender person. I repeat:  a person.  It wasn’t for them to decide who they are nor is it mine, or ours, to judge.

This viewpoint was in answer to a question posted on QUORA.com ::.. an escape to learn about what matters or what people are talking about.  Originally, I used as a sales blogging tool, now it stimulates interest on topics that one may not have the opportunity to discuss, rationally, online.  It is monitored, it avoids abuse of any kind.  It is healthy.  Good mental health.  A setting that allows you to take a stand on your viewpoint or nudge others to your point of view.  

Best of all:  a safe place to investigate your own perspective, on your own time.

Image of the moment
Isn't that just awesome?  Can I use that as an image for my blog?  If I do, will I get sued?  Well, it just has the vibe to what direction this blog is going in.  Not as much as a destination in mind except a journey in sight.

Back on topic
I remember quite awhile ago writing about how hard it is to find rewarding work when you hit your 50s.  I probably wrote it when I turned 50 knowing me.  Now that I'm 55, it seems a lot more prophetic, as in predicting the future.  

I probably had a harder time writing, but then again, I reflect that I have been writing since I was able to hold a pencil, crayon or pen.  I can just imagine me in my youth, like other kids who pretend read a story book, I was actually reading according to my mom.  

Most likely, I was holding a pencil and finely with rapt concentration, doing artful scribbles.  My very innocent take on what writing was.  Imagine, not being able to write, yet able to take words that dance and being able to read th…

The "cause" before the "effect"

Ever hear of cause'n'effect before?

It is a theory.  Don't ask me how or by whom, the great idea expounded to everyone's great, deep, understanding ::..... either spiritually or mathematically, that for every action their is a reaction.  Get it?  I'm trying to get the great stuff outta here, which drown out the bad stuff.  My dad would always ask us:  "what's the pay off?"  I don't know where that came from, really.  Was it just amazing vision and understanding to determine that is the defining question by which all persons should be able to answer when struggling with a decision:  "what's the pay off".  Kind of like what someone else say:  "what's the worst that can happen? Now, tell me what is the best that could happen?

They say that you should blog at least 5 days a week if you want to make any tremors in the stratosphere.  I'm hard pressed to sit down and write.

An acting anything

I'm still not sure what direction this blog is going to go in.  Like my other 4 blogs, they evolved into a category that I am comfortable talking about in a demographic profile to speak for a strong spirited generation that many would think have shuffled on to the sidelines only NOW able to be discovered as doing famously well even if not famous nor infamous.

Comments about US Election
The US Presidential Election of 2016 is a anomaly that is for sure.   At the same time, it exploits a commentary about what is hidden in our society when it comes to men and women equality.  I've never written per se about a gender specific issue before.  However, now that is so increasingly being pronounced in this US Presidential Election seemingly to be more about genders than anything, I decided to speak up and based on whether this blog is shared, speak out.  

Gender
For hardly can it be anything but about gender is profound.  Let's look at the difference, as a reflection of what our societ…
