THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity with author Joe Wenke
Despite the progress in the movement toward marriage equality, the LGBTQI community continues to face difficult, and often heartbreaking, odds. Gay and lesbian youth are four times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide. Nearly half of transgender teens have contemplated suicide and a quarter has made an attempt, according to The Trevor Project. Adoption equality and second-parent rights are still blocked in many states, and legislators in Oklahoma and Alabama have tried to introduce laws that make it legal to discriminate against gays and lesbians. Perhaps most disturbing of all, homicide rates for transgender women account for 45 percent of all hate murders, according to GLAAD.
Joe Wenke thinks there is a better way. By opening up discussions about our shared humanity and experiences, Wenke is getting people to talk with, not at, each other and leaving the rancor and divisiveness behind, beginning with his book THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity. For this collection of frank conversations about growing up, coming out, finding your identity, family, marriage, parenting, careers and so much more.

When 1976 Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner, a real hunk of a muscular man, came out 39 years later with the statement “for all intents and purposes, I am a woman” in a rather spectacular TV interview, he also emphasized the mysteries of the brain. Jenner admitted that his brain is more female than it is male. Why? Is it because of a wound? Is Satan playing games? Is it because of messed-up neurons and bad electrical connections? We don’t have a clue—yet. He was just a very young boy when he discovered he was more comfortable in his mother’s and sister’s dresses. Jenner says: “It just made me feel good.” He actually began transgender reassignment therapy in the 1980’s which included hormones, nose surgery, and hair removal. He then changed his mind.
We are just beginning to solve the great mysteries of the brain. It’s a very complex maze. There are 20,000 to 25,000 genes in the human genome and about half of them work in our brain “system,” whatever that is. Our famous upright ancestor Lucy of about 3.2 million years ago had a brain of 600 cubic centimeters. The next “human” (Homo Habilis) had 900 cubic centimeters to work with. Our current brother Homo Sapiens has a magnificent 1,400 cubic centimeters in order to tangle with the universe. The brain seems to be a very flexible conglomeration of electrical switches and breakers. Our billions of brain cells somehow communicate with all parts of the body, if things are working right,
Pedophilia the next 'sexual-rights' revolution? We are going to talk about what may be the greatest moral crisis To date: Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior. If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized.
Are we sexually compatible? This is a question with complex answers. If you're dating to marry, how do you find out without "testing the waters?" On the other hand, you're married and unsatisfied. She wants one thing and he wants another. Well, this is worth remembering - Sex and sexual compatibility isn't just about orgasms. It's about the connection and intimacy that comes with sex. It's less about frequency and much more about quality and communication. Sexual compatibility doesn't mean you have to want the same things. It means that you're complimentary! Listen in as Dr. and Lady Newells weigh in on part 2 of this delicate subject. Get your questions and comments ready!
