Current Music: Bernstein - Spies Like Us; Bond Beauties

I've shed this corporeal body of my earthly raiment and only now feel truly free. Unshackled by the textiles which cling to me; suffocate me.

I've given much thought to the claim that homosexuality is not a learned a behavior brought on solely by environmental influences, but perhaps a genetic element as well. Apparently some who are transgendered are saying the same thing. While I refuse to prematurely embrace or dismiss these claims without further data, if both those statements are true then mathematically speaking there are a percentage of women out there who are not only biologically men, but also lesbians.

I may be one of them.

Followed out to one possible conclusion, were science to definitively prove this, how would society react? We, as a population require something to look down on to inflate our individual value. So if half the men were heterosexual biological men, and half were lesbian transgendered women, and half the women were biological heterosexual women, and the other half were homosexual transgendered men, who would be able to point fingers at whom, exactly?

We'd have to adjust our entire perspective, as well as naming convention.

Using the vi editor, 'Esc' gets you out of insert mode, and 'Shift-A' appends the end of the current line. That's also the break sequence for the ThinkLogic terminal concentrators.

Woe to those who vi files on the console.

What a long, long weekend. I walked the dog alone, I slept alone, I ate my meals alone. I mowed the lawn then watched Airplane!, Spies Like Us, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, Time Machine, Timeline, Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Layer Cake, Stargate and The Matrix. It was weird watching movies alone. The only thing I wanted to do was watch Stargate: Atlantis with my wife. Since I can't have her, I'm going to go get Season 4 today after work. I'd been staying up until 0300, but knew I had to get up early Monday for work, so first I concocted a plan, then I concocted two Solo cups of French 75. Yes, that did the trick.

I passed out right on schedule at 2300.

yes, actually

I know at least a couple transgendered lesbians.

Although I think we do have evidence that gender and sexuality have strong genetic components, there isn't any indication that it's 50/50.

Re: yes, actually

...have strong genetic components

Agreed! And its likely only a matter of time before something more definitive will put the nature vs. nurture to rest once and for all.

Does this mean you found the *elusive* and *beautiful* Polo shirt you've been hunting months for and feel guilty about the girlie glee that has ensued? Did you throw out all of your other rough/itchy and manly clothes? ';)

Not yet (though I'm still looking), and no, not even accidentally - I was just postulating.

Irony: I watched Stargate yesterday because my mom hadn't seen it, but my dad and I are huge fans. ("Give my regards to King Tut, asshole!") I recommend Top Secret! and Blues Brothers.

Makes sense. And the whole idea of finger pointing pisses me off—why do we humans feel that need to point fingers and blame? Why can't we just accept some things are they way they are simply "because"?

Forgive me if none of this really makes sense, I feel like shit right now...

I've seen Top Secret! recently - bought it from the $5 bin; Dad took us to see it when it was in theaters believe it or not - I hadn't seen it since.

Blues Brothers - one of my all time favorites!

I listened to Stargate turned way up. God I got goosebumps as that David Arnold score played.

Hummm... this post has given me much afterthought. Are you saying you are a woman ,not trapped in a man's body, but living in harmony in a man's body... and you are a lesbian? This is pretty cool.

I retracted my earlier comment due to fact I think I need more info as well. hehehe...*sigh*

Spies Like Us is a classic!

Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor,...

I got ya. You would definitely know if you felt so. I believe you classify as 100% Grade A Man.
