Libido Redux: TransJennerism


The reader of these pages is aware that in this current time of post-Obergefell “same sex marriage,” we are also witnessing increased fascination with transgenderism and an emerging indifference to gender.
Thus I found it interesting to observe Walt Heyer, who has undergone surgery to become and woman and then back to a man, has the most poignant article on this topic which includes the regrets of a physician who underwent gender reassignment surgery. Let’s not forget the amazingly candid list of regrets written by Renee Richards in her book No Way Renee. While not regretting her surgery outright, she makes it clear she did it because she thought she had no choice. Her choice destroyed her family, her capacity to love like she/he used to, her spirituality, and more.
