Land of confusion
A transgender man who came out after his transgender daughter began hormone therapy has detailed how his journey from woman to man made him fall in love with his husband all over again.
Eric Maison, a father-of-five from Detroit, Michigan, proudly supported his daughter Corey, 15, after she revealed that she is a transgender girl. It was her journey that made Eric realize that he identified as male, and last month he had a double mastectomy to remove his breasts.
And while his five children still call him 'mom', Eric told Good Morning America that he was blown away by how supportive his husband Les Maison has been. [WHISKEY. TANGO. FOXTROT.]
I did not want to write this post- which is why it's been sitting in my Drafts folder for something like 7 months. But a devotion to truth and reason dictate that it needed to be done- no matter how sick it made me feel in the process.
Because, you see, truth doesn't care how you feel about it. It doesn't care whether you cannot stand being exposed to madness in order to reach it. It simply is what it is, and not all of the insanity in the world can change that fact.
One day, not long from now in my view, the truth that men are men, and women are women, and that one cannot become the other, will return to its proper and rightful place within our lives and societies.
But I wonder how much more madness we will have to endure before that happens, and how many more mentally ill and vulnerable people will have to suffer before we do.
