I thought it might be an appropriate time to show what I looked like one year post SRS. This photo was taken in MacArthur Park during the late spring of 1973.
One year and I have had close to 67.000 hits.
I have had Tina’s critical eye as an editor of my sometimes written at 6:00 am before work posts. She has helped me become a far better writer than I would be without her critical ear and eye for punctuation. She has curbed my Beat desire to write long unpunctuated sentences.
I would like to thank Andrea Brown for her contributions. Her often incendiary and well documented posts have shown light into dark places and have exposed exaggerations as well as flat out lies that people tell because they are in denial of the truth of their transsexualism and think an unbelievable fiction is preferable.
I also wish to thank Andrea James for promoting my blog on her most excellent web site.
I want to thank Sharon Gaughan and Lisa Jain Thompson of TS-SI for both promoting my blog and publishing my opinion pieces. I know they have taken a lot of heat as I have long been a source of controversy.
Feministe for its “Shameless Sunday Promotions”
Questioning Transphobia for making me question some of my own thinking.
I’ve angered some readers who expected me to take their “classic transsexual” and others who expect me to accept what I see as absurd word games regarding the whole construct of transgender as umbrella.
I hope that over the next year the blog will continue to grow and for that I owe those of you who read this blog and link to it a big thank you.
