I'll make a longish post, and I hope that people lik Sha'Tara (did I get it right?), who are almost my opposite, will chime in.
I was born and raised with a modestly succesful "pirate image." I am a guy, I like guy things, I want girls to do things with my johnson, and thinking about other guys' johnsons makes me cringe. Hell, I even gave it a tiny chance for a bit, trying to fantazize about guys and even looking up a bit of softcore porn. It never went past "ewwww."
That on the sexuality side. On the identity side, I always liked all the testosterone fueled passions
Sorry guys, I've been lurking other topics as this one, surprise, surprise, does NOT really interest me much. But I'll chime in, because of the invite.
In "my" world, the truly transgendered knows it by the fact that both and neither sexes are of particular interest. We become "transgendered" as a sop to the flesh because the brain/body complex is so twisted by its repressed sexuality. And as anyone can see, this addiction to sex is not conducive to a healthy species nor a healthy planet when the species in question overcomes its natural predators and propagates completely out of control. Two things I see: either develop a sexually driven creature that does not procreate, or drastically diminish its sex drive.
So, this thread seems to be about sex and sexuality. True transgendering is not about sex or sexuality. I have a male body and for a time it worked "normally" although I never had much attraction to the "opposite" sex, including my mates. Marriage was a societal convenience, nothing more. I terminated my last marriage because it made no sense. My ex-mate is one of my best friends and we help each other, so the relationship moved "up" in value once we were "free" of each other. I see this as something that will become the norm in man's future but not for quite a while yet. Men will never learn to respect and give women their complete freedom to think and act AS WOMEN as long as sex-based relationships rule here.
Back to me, some years ago my ability to "perform" as a male died off quite naturally and I was very relieved and thankful to discover that the energy that once was given off to sex, or seeking sexual satisfaction could be easily channelled in much more productive ways. My mind exploded with new awareness and I truly began to see the world (and its problems) from a much higher and broader perspective. That's when I realized that my purpose was to become an avatar.
Earthian sex drive IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. One way I see as a stop-gap measure to ease this problem is to develop cheap and easy contraceptives, temporary or permanent, then free people to express themselves sexually with any and every one they feel like - and no social constraints. Anyone must realize by now that Earthians are NOT monogamous creatures! If they were, they would not experience the sex drive they do. Another very important thing I learned through transgendering: no single female can completely fulfill the needs on a single male, and vice versa. It is totally natural for men and women to seek ADDITIONAL sexual fulfillment among strangers. That should be encouraged, not repressed as it is now!
Earthians NEED to express themselves sexually at their current stage of development - and that is why their sexuality is deliberately, sadistically, controlled. Think of the money made on the sex drive in all areas of commerce! Think of the power a religion or government exercises over the people when they control such a powerful force.
Society has twisted the minds of people so that women can't be women and consequently men must exist in a dark world of constant sexual frustration, always encountering women and denied access to them. This is sick. All the taboos around sexuality, including nudity, in Earthian society only contribute to male violence against women and children, the spread of STD's, pornography, prostitution, masochism, sadism and snuff, i.e., total social dysfunction.
In a distant future this species will no longer experience the need for sex it does now, but that's a long time - from what I've "seen" it doesn't begin to show before 1000 years hence, and that's with the help of "friendlies" from "out there" - you know, those nebulous aliens in UFO's! For the time being, MEN (this remains a totally male-dominated world) must change their attitudes to women.
This must become a planetary code: Honor, respect, help, support, protect all women, all children - and hold as utterly SACRED the mother and her child. That is the avatar's teaching. Once your women are freed of sexual oppression and repression; once they know they are totally safe with you, you will have all the sex you ever wanted and will ever need - and you'll never have to chase it or buy it. All the social violence (including sports and wars) that seems so attractive, so necessary at this time will disappear and when you look back on it you will feel only shame that you let yourselves be so cheaply manipulated by psychopathic "leaders" who led you to oppress and kill your women and your children. I don't mean this to be preachy but it's hard to hide visions that promise so much beauty and joy for a world. It's harder to exercise patience!
