Gender Elasticity #transgender #AuthenticAcceptanceofOthers #Thailand #SOM #SpiritualLiving

One of my best friends decided to change his life, about the same time I decided to move to Florida. He moved to Thailand and ended up getting married soon after. Talking on Skype early in the morning has become commonplace for us, catching up on life, as we used to when we would rollerblade together in Nashville, almost daily.

I shared with how I have noticed, since I moved to Southern Florida, how accepting the majority of the people are here about gays. In fact, there is an entire town, Wilton Manors, that has more gay people per capita than anywhere in the United States. The gays have literally created an entire town and even have a modicum of control over the governing law of the community. Hence, living down here has been quite the change compared to Nashville.

If I want to walk in the mall arm in arm with my boyfriend, no one even cares or blinks. I get the overwhelming feeling of acceptance, more than I had ever experienced, even in NYC twenty years ago.

As I shared this story with my friend from Thailand, I asked the pertinent question: “How accepting are the Taiwanese about gays?”

He answered surprisingly, “The Thai’s are the most gender elastic people I’ve ever known. In fact, a large portion of the teenagers are transgender.”

As I researched and made more inquiries, I discovered that gender reassignment surgery in the U.S. is about 8OK, while in Thailand it is 30K. This vast contrast in the cost of surgery is just about the same for any medical procedure. This makes Thailand a leader MEDICAL TOURISM.

The country has some of the best doctors for gender reassignment, because these doctors do so many surgeries per year. But, it hasn’t been until the recent millennials that the children of the Thai’s have become transparent and elastic with their gender, as well.

It seems that, dependent on the culture, we may all be acting a little less like our specific gender, and a little more like our opposite gender. This would give all of us opportunities to be more authentic to our emotions. Let’s face it, many cultures have assigned specific emotions for each gender. When we cross these boundaries, someone is bound to let us know. “Ah, you’re acting just like a girl” or “Isn’t she the Tomboy?”

If we were more a gender elastic community, less of us would be dealing with anxiety and more of us would have healthy relationship. Less people would be searching in the dark for sexual satisfaction, and more people would be living OUTLOUD. This would lead all of us to less judgment, in general.

I would love this kind of world.

Caitlyn and Extremism #caitlynjenner #republican #GOP #extremism #transgender #gayvstransgender

Many stories have come and gone about Caitlyn Jenner, but the strangest of all of them is her card-carrying right to be a Republican and the media around that issue. In fact, lately, it seems that what has come out of the Republican party, more than anything these past months, is more extremism and fundamentalism, mixed with a sprinkling of “I better support the Right Wing Christian Faith or I’ll lose this race, but if I don’t get some of the gays’ votes, I’ll lose too,” than the foundational grit one would need to win a presidency.

Just the fact that 17 GOPs have shown up for the race, including Donald Trump, just makes my jaw drop in anticipation for the first big debate. What will they talk about? Caitlyn Jenner, gay marriage, abortion, or what really matters with finance and foreign policy? Is some computer geek measuring what Americans really want and believe in? With this information, will we see more and more extreme candidates fighting for that popular vote? If so, you’re going to see Right Wing Whatevers saying it’s not right to marry if you’re gay, but in some cases, it may be okay to change your gender if you’re a big enough sports hero!

I’ve never been harsh about who anyone wants to be as a political supporter. I just hope that you take part, because it’s important to have a voice in any election, albeit a small one. I have supported frontrunners when they have fallen to a loss and have had my hopes dashed. I have sat out for the run and simply voted. Today, I’m going to use my right as a citizen to speak my truth.

If you choose your right to vote this election, make this your primary rule: Is this person worthy of your trust and the trust of all America?

These are the questions you should ask yourself:

  1. Is he/she running on a platform that is based on hate or prejudice?
  2. Is this person an extremist in any way?
  3. Is this person qualified to run a country based on his/her past?
  4. Does this person deny ANYONE rights as Americans?
  5. Lastly, when it comes to the economy and war, does your presidential pick have the wherewithal to fight against a congress and senate that will tear down every desire to make effective change?

My criteria sounds odd, when you think about credentials for running for president, but look closer. If someone is running on a platform of hate, how could he or she be fair? If a candidate is extreme, then our trust will wane whenever he/she takes office. We will have no idea how far his/her deeply seated extremism will go. Experience, of course, speaks for itself. But, the fourth criteria about denying rights to anyone, speaks of the most important aspect of a leader. If a candidate can’t look out into the audience and see every face as his or her brother or sister, mother or father, then he or she doesn’t get my vote.

Then, my last criteria, has come from years of watching effective people lose the battle to do good because of a senate or congress that won’t work with him—simply against. These days, getting laws and change passed through congress is more about being on the side of the majority than anything else. So, I want the president to be strong in his/her decision making, but also adamant enough to sit like a praying Buddha in the middle of this crazy, antagonistic senate and congress to get something—anything—done worth changing.

Girlfriend Born a Man? The Divine Feminine #MichaelPhelps

A lot of buzz is going around about Record Breaking Gold Medalist, Michael Phelps, dating a woman who is a #transgender individual. Whether true or false, this begs the question: When we meet a soul mate, are we actually connecting with the body, the mind, the spirit, or all of the above? Does Michael #Phelps love the spirit that embraces the body of this woman, or is he into some hidden sexual preference? I think you know, spiritually, where I’m going with this. If you have never heard of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine attributes of a person, let me explain the concept.

Michael Phelps

In each human are both masculine and feminine attributes—I’ll talk simply about the attributes that are considered positive in both arenas. Some of our feminine qualities would be Mother Earth attributes such as balance, intuition, compassion, expressions of love, nurturing, and our artistic abilities. On the other hand, our divine masculine attributes would be our warrior nature, physical strength, precociousness, the ability to provide, and to be a hard worker.

The divine feminine is more like the womb or the cocoon in which a caterpillar develops. The masculine would be power, moving, or anything that is based on creating and building actively. Each of these attributes has many archetypes in the world. Most of our masculine archetypes are very prominent in all societies. In the Hindi culture, however, our divine feminine archetypes are clearly expressed in many of the goddesses of this religion. (Good for them for not acquiescing to the cultural norms of the rest of the world.)

So, knowing that each of us has within our capacity to express from any or all of these attributes—both masculine and feminine—we recognize that culture can nurture the idea that men must have more masculine qualities. Females, on the other hand, should resist the urge to be strong individuals and maintain what is naturally a motherly instinct.

However, in our world today, the attributes of the divine feminine and masculine are merging, specifically helped by the gay culture, who has never condemned the merging of the two divine natures. Today, we see many more metro-sexual men, which means that men are not being defined simply by their strength, but by their sensitivity, too. Many straight women are looking for this type of man so that straight relationships can have more balance.

Equally impressive, strong women have been emerging since the dawn of time. Even though the world often rejects women such as Hillary Clinton, Mother Theresa, Oprah, and Michelle Obama, we are clearly making headway as strong women bring to the table balance that the world so strongly needs right now, especially in the face of such tendencies to fight and battle for power.

For a long time in my life I considered myself a bi-sexual man. I almost got married to women twice in my life. I loved those women and found it easy to nurture them sexually, even though, my tendencies for sexuality were attracted to men, as well. I felt divided in my soul. But, I convinced myself, that I was fine, because I wasn’t allowing myself to be defined by sexual behavior. The truth is, eventually, my sexuality found more balance in the gay world, because I realized that my masculine attributes didn’t have to express at sexuality toward women, as society dictated. As I let my divine feminine and masculine attributes balance in my humanness, my inclination was stronger as a gay man. Still, I find beauty in all of God’s creatures.

Getting back to Michael Phelps, I believe he should be honored for openly dating someone who is transgender, if that is the case. He has not allowed himself to be reformed by the world’s point of view. He loves from his heart, whomever and whatever form that takes in the divine individual of his choice. This should be honored in any individual.

This novel chronicles my stay in New York City in a somewhat cultish home with unique and powerful prayer warriors. I created a fictional twist to make the story burst from the pages when an outsider falls in love the character, who most mirrors my life. You’ll have fun with “Marlene and the Religiously Insane!” Go to Amazon!
