Errol’s Birthday

cropped-jocelyn_rainbow-2-1.jpg

As I sit here in my eloctrologist’s office contemplating the sheer pain that awaits, I had a thought. Who would pretend to be Transgender?  We have heard countless stories about those that will “pretend to be Transgender”  Former Govenor of Arkansas thought that you could pretend to be Transgender.    http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/02/politics/mike-huckabee-transgender-caitlyn-jenner/

 

There is no pretending to be Transgender Sir, either you are, or you are not.  This is not something that can be turned on and off.  Those of us that were born with a birth defect cannot even compare to those of you that think we all were born in sin.  As someone that was born I have no idea how I sinned at that point in my life, but if christitianity wants to heap that on me,  I reserve the right to fight back.And fight back I shall.  Calling me a sinner at birth makes about as much sense as insinuating that I am only “throwing on a dress” to perv on ugly christian women and their bratty kids.

 

Being Transgender can be a battle in a cultural war. That war with society could mean life or death, Rest In Power to our fallen brothers and sisters.  I am well aware that that I can be murdered tomorrow for living my authenthinc life.  This life chose me,  I accepted and embraced it because; well, I can. this is my life.  My natural rights enshrined in the constitution ensure those rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If i want to live fast and die hard that is my right. It isn’t about what some book of myths says, It is about the battle that we all face living our authentic lives.  A battle in a war that is perpetuated by a group of so called Christians.  Christians are ready to be on the wrong side of history yet again.  Those that oppose your centuries of oppression shall fight you till the end of time. Oppression in the name arbitary beliefs born of darkened times and fearful minds shall be defeated.  What shall not bend must break.

 

I support everyones right to religion of their choice, any sincerely held religious beliefs do not trump (no pun intended) my natural rights.  North Carolina, Mississippi and others are testing the waters once again to enshrine the right to discriminate.  They now cry that they are discriminated against by those that oppose their ill conceived notion to push Gays back into the closet and push those that are Transgender over the cliff.

to resist invasions of it in the case of others:

or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own.”

Transinclusivemovement.com’s First Anniversary And All I got Was A Blog Space

I’m a couple of days early with the anniversary post, but I thought I’d give the blog spot a spin. Errol worked feverishly because he loves me so much that he’d do anything to make sure I could post on the website.

The introductory blog;

 

April 18th has important meaning to Errol and I.  It is my Transgender Birthday, more importantly it is Errol’s Birthday but most importantly it is the anniversary of the day that the two of us decided to live our lives together. (still waiting on the ring) 😉  Sometimes coincidence is something worth following up on.

 

So what does a guy get a girl that has everything?  Her very own blog of course.  In this blog I hope to move beyond Transgender issues and meld them into issues of greater importance.  I will spend my time writing about those things that I care about most, freedom, equality and fighting the inequalities that are being perpetrated in the name of the dominant pervasive religion in our hamlets, towns and cities all the way up to State and Federal government.  Often times those battles intersect with the culture war waged against the LGBT community.  The Transgender Community is unfortunately at the spearhead of this assault on basic freedom by those that are running out of people to discriminate against.

 

My name is Jocelyn Nicole Nickle.  I am a Transgender Woman.  I consider myself fully transitioned and have assimilated into society as Female.  A co worker told me the other night that “you are not transgender anymore”  A telling statement of what we all strive for but I will always be Trans in the eyes of some.  That is why I will continue to fight for my Trans Brothers and Sisters.  My fight is against the larger problem of the wave of so called “religious freedom laws’.  They have nothing to do with freedom with the one exception that they grant “freedom” to discriminate.  Some might consider my opinions a bit harsh.  That may be but I believe that we are in a Culture War for the very soul of our society.  This blog is so important to me to define how we as individuals can fight the tide of oppression and win this culture war.

 

Thank You to my Boyfriend Errol Mcinnes,  I Luv You.

Jocelyn

 

I look forward to hearing feedback from those that read my rants and musings.
