Now We Went and Did It!

More than likely when you were a kid, you were told not to do something and off you went to see if the consequences were going to be as bad as predicted.

Sure thing! That hot stove burner did hurt!

Are we now in a similar situation as the transgender nation? Recent developments may indicate yes. During the past week, names such as Don Ennis, B. Scott and now Phillip Porter have made the headlines as some sort of former or current transgender women.

To start with, I don't believe in a former transgender person. If you are-you are.  I certainly do believe however,  in those who don't understand their inner gender and eventually change. Free choice is good choice if it's your choice.

All of this new transgender "news activity" does lead me to wonder though how it individually effects me and others.  Just as we were starting to turn the corner with positive public information, will I now have to deal with those who think I'm doing all of this as some sort of a lark?  When I'm done "playing girl" like Ennis or Porter, will I just go back to my "comfy" life as a guy?

No it won't. If it keeps up, what it could do is change my educational approach as a public transgender woman. Interestingly (or not) I actually have transitioned from my part time cross dresser status to my current self in front of more than a couple people who have followed the process without knowing or asking much about me. Right or wrong I believe much of what they see in the media possibly could reflect on me..."Hey is Cyrsti like that? Will we all of the sudden see him in the future?"

One way or another all of this totally out of my control. I was just wondering if that burner on the stove is still hot?

The New "T" Scott

B. Scott now  accepts the descriptor "transgender." Read on:

"Wikipedia defines Transgender as the state of one’s gender identity (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one’s assigned sex (identification by others as male, female or intersex based on physical/genetic sex).

 It is by that definition that I accept and welcome the ‘transgender’ label with open arms" 

You have probably heard by now B. Scott  is filing a multi million dollar lawsuit against BET and Viacom following the decision to force her to change to male clothes for the 2013 BET Awards Pre-Show. As she should!

In a further statement from her site B. Scott wrote: my spirit truly lies somewhere in between. It is that same spirit that has allowed me to become so comfortable in my skin, choose how I express myself, and contributes to how I live my day-to-day life.

From my own selfish viewpoint, I'm glad she clarified where she stands. After I saw B. Scott on the Chef Roble show, transgender was not one of the labels I would have used.

Catering for a Queen

The Bravo television network has a show which features a caterer extrodinare called Chef Roble and Co. Season two-episode two was called "Too Hot to Handle"

I was already a fan of Roble's because of the catering background I had during my food service days but this show was extra fun.

Roble catered for the queen  B.Scott the androgynous Internet celebrity,  (right) who among other things wanted androgynous food.

I'm not going to spoil the show for you except to say the event was over the top! (Of course it was!)

For a look, go here.
