Transexuals [they are not transvestities or cross dressers] are special people, they are misunderstood by many who see them in a sexual light only. I only identify as female and with female and i was born in a male oriented body, confusing and not nice, as it creates a very difficult journey, which seems you are travelling on a different road to everybody else. My experience is that it is impossible to erase this journey and begin again, which causes initially, self doubt and confusion about what is happening and why cannot i stop the process?, for many people this leads to depression and suicide. Gender is what is between your ears and sex is what is between your legs. Transexuals have the same sexual orientation as everybody else, you maybe heterosexual, sex with males, bisexual, sex with both, or homosexual, sex with females. Yes it is very confusing and which is understandable for those who are not on this journey. I am heterosexual, though i adore born females, and wish to be like them in every way. I have been on this journey for many years and i have achieved accepting myself, and having self esteem because of it.
Interesting talk about intelligence and design in USA, particularly from the Discoverey Institute, where learned people claim that Charles Darwin got it all wrong, it is so interesting that they are not criticising the scientists of today, only the trail blazer of theory of evolution, such heroes.
Intelligent Design as a catch phase is an oxy-moron, as biology and biochemistry are unable to be patented or converted by ignorant and ambitious designers hoping to create a Branded science product. [Intelligent Design]
The "creation" theorists are attempting to pervade education and traditional religious organisations, by planting their own believers in positions of influence and power, they have the ear of the President and heirachy of the catholic regime in the vatican.
It is a shame that science has been hijacked by corporations with the help of politicians and others with vested interests, such as god fearers. The hijackers are able to create their own versions of truth in science, and feed it into the biggest and best propaganda machines. Business as usual.
Water is the basic for all living matter, it is not blessed with intelligence, or living qualities in itself, it needs oxygen for maintainence of life. This is fact and not a belief system. The belief systems of today have their origins in the long ago past, before Charles Darwin. We have enough madness in our world today and we should not let a "new" madness prosper. Lets keep our hearts and minds to ourselves.
Up early and writing. To be starving must be one of the most devastating things that a human or animal has to endure. Endure because nobody cares enough to give you a bite to eat, even in the richest countries there are too many not getting a bite to eat.
Apathy, complacency, ignorance, greed, praying to a god for our daily bread, waste, dumping, ideology, shares, gadgets, all contribute to an innocent child not getting a bite to eat, in a far off land. Out of sight, out of mind, especially out of the minds of the corporate media who feed off their obese and unhealthy consumers, who eat fast, and live fast, but do not die fast, due to fat health systems, if you have the dues to pay. The poor get poorer and the rich get richer. The greedy get greedier, the hungry get hungrier.
