Thanks again to Paul for his thoughtful piece “THE DICHOTOMY OF BEING TRANS*Gender Identity vs. Gender Expression”. The main reason MacArthur and I started Arise 2.0 was to give ourselves and others a forum, a voice to voices often not heard in the traditional media.
We also wanted to engage in dialogue. I reread Paul’s piece numerous times. Although I am not transgender, I do get mis-gendered. More on that in a separate blog.
I posted the blog to my personal page and to the Arise 2.0 Facebook page and have received comments that I am trying to determine if they are transphobic. That’s part of the engagement as well.
We can all “agree to disagree”. I support Paul and others as part of our community. What are your thoughts?
If you have submissions, please email to the publishers: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com.
Peace, love, gratitude, compassion and blessings.
