    Hung Jury.... Would you date a Transsexual?

    What is Transgender?


    I think sometimes, about what it means to be transgender. I probe and probe for answers, because as the possibility for a new age of enlightenment and safety increases, the others want to know. I’ve come up with many answers, but I can hold to none. I don’t deserve to paint the definition of a culture with the limited experiences I’ve had. I don’t see myself in the transgender identified people allowed on television. I don’t see myself in the transgender identified people making news feeds and giving high profile interviews. And as my nation’s exposure to our culture increases, likely will their curiosity. Am I transgender? Do I have the right? I’ve heard doctors, psychiatrists, may refuse transgender patients access to hormone therapy based on how dedicated or convincing their portrayal of their identified gender. If you want to be a man or woman, you’ll have to look like the women and men on TV. If you want to be transgender, you’ll have to look like the trans identified people on TV. Every single one of us who has an active role as either participant or observer in our society is prey to the crisis of validity. Am I pretty enough? Am I strong enough? Am I brave enough? Mom enough? Dad enough? Competitive enough? Successful enough? Rich enough? Sexy enough? Pious enough? It never ends. We’re, as a nation of people, being crushed and compartmentalized by this ever present lens, looming over us, exploiting our weaknesses and fears so it may grow wider, and support itself as it follows us, seemingly forever into the future.

    Cougar On The Prowl... 40 Is The New 20

    in Lifestyle

    A Cougar: An "older," experienced woman who happens to find herself in a sexual relationship (committed or not) with a younger man. She is not necessarily a slut, nor is she desperate. She offers sexual expertise and is open to new experiences. She simply wants to have fun. Though older, she may actually look younger than her "hook-up." She is attractive, confident, and just wants to have fun. She will not attempt to trap her mate into marriage, children or even an exclusive relationship. She is not interested in drama or games, as that would interfere with the pleasure she enjoys.


    She's A Cougar.... By Eugene Carmen


    She is a predator at night and a proper lady in the day Young men, the younger the better but in their early 30's is okay She has money, but wants to own several men They can't satisfy her cravings, but do the best they can She knows their weaknesses, like Superman and Lex Luthor She is a well known species, she is a Cougar Her men better be in shape, she likes the hunks Buys them drinks to get them drunk She looks good for her ripe age But without the makeup, she could be put in a cage She wears the Minks, not some on sale Kmart fur She lives next door, watch out for the huntress in the local cougar ....

    There Is No Love, Without Trust

    in Lifestyle

    As We Dance


     


    In the sky less stars tonight But who needs shards of light when the sparkle in your heart ignites fire in the alley of my mind. I close my eyes, just to feel me swinging in your arms I trust to fall knowing you will hug me tightly as we dance Under a sky void of light, my sweet Psyche, my soul I keep your world upright. The darkness now bright, truth streaming from deep behind those wonton eyes. My heart has been ignited by the comfort of your mind as we dance.....




    Trust Me, Love me


    by Unknown


    I cry for you, I cry right now
    I wonder why, I wonder how
    You've hurt my feelings
    You've broke my heart
    I hate it when we're always apart.

    I love you, but do you love me?
    Is our love fake or meant to be?
    We hug, we hold hands, but that's all we can do, I wish I can do more, but that's all up to you.

    Why can't you trust or believe in me? You think I cheat, is that what you see?

    I would never hurt or break up with you, at least that's what I think, do you think that way too?

    When I'm with you I'm as happy as can be, I think about you all night, do you think about me?

    I think you're funny and also very strong, some times I feel like nothing can go wrong.

    Do you even know my feelings for you? I wish I can express my love that's been true.

    I'll never forget the time we've spend, some times I wish that it'll never end.

    Just give me a hug or even a kiss, I hope it's something that I'll never ever miss.

    Forget what people say or might even do, you should always remember that I'll always love you!!

    #142 Dr. Monica Schaeffer - Easy and Fun Ways to Help Children Cope with Stress

    in Psychology

    Auntie Nellie's Magical Pockets is both an entertaining and educational story about a boy named Casey, whose amusing, helpful Aunt comes to visit for a week. Out of her amazingly deep, bottomless pockets, she pulls anti-stress gadgets. Using these gadgets, Casey learns to cope with six common, stressful childhood situations, including handling a major disappointment, getting teased, and learning a new skill. In the final chapter, Casey uses two of these gadgets, his Who-Can-I-Tell? Megaphone and his Save-the-Day Idea Bank, to help his friend the way Auntie Nellie helped him.


    As a bonus, Parent/Teacher Notes are included in each chapter. They provide the adult reader with the principles behind the gadgets, as well as additional tips for helping the child practice the new coping skills.


    Monica H. Schaeffer, Ph.D., is a health psychologist who has conducted research and led workshops on stress and decision-making and stress management. She has been published in a number of professional journals on the effects of environmental stress, commuter stress, and illness severity. After studying stress in adults, both acute and chronic, Dr. Schaeffer recognized that children could benefit from possessing a repertoire of coping techniques to prevent the harmful effects of stress. In fact, the stories and techniques included in this book began taking shape when her oldest daughter communicated that she was not satisfied with simply having bedtime stories read to her and would exclaim, "tell me a story from your mind." Currently Dr. Schaeffer is the president of the non-profit organization, VITAL, Inc. (www.vitalinc.org) and facilitates workshops on ethical wills/legacy letters. Her hobbies include photography, travel, and museum hopping.
