  1. Do you ever have those dreams were you're all alone in a quiet place at night? Perhaps your in a walking in a long stretching corridor in a hospital, with only the fluorescent lights and the echoing sound of your footsteps to keep you company. Only just 30 seconds before you said goodbye to your beloved sister and kissed your newborn neice on her forehead, but between then and now it might as well been millions of years. Maybe you're idly browsing for food and toiletries in a supermarket 20 minutes before it closes, nabbing the discounted products they usually sell at that time. But, the place is almost so empty and the space so open that you could shop for there forever without feeling you've lost any time. It's yours and yours alone for infinity. At one time of the day, you're sitting outside of a coffee shop with your dear friend chatting away for a hours at a time. The details don't matter but her company does. Other shops and market stalls are open, people and their carefree children are going about their daily lives and the weather is turning crisp and cold, ready and waiting for wintertime. The sound of that particular merchant chanting variants of "Two packs of bananas for a pound! A pack of grapes for a pound! " is lazor burned into your memory, something that's resonates from the earliest of your childhood. If any time of the day feels alive and busy, it's right now. But you and your friend part ways, promising to meet eachother the same time next week. You go about the rest of your day, doing different things and going to some other places. Like visiting your sister and neice in the hospital or getting the late night deals at Tesco before it closes. Later on in the evening nearing midnight you return the same place as you walk home, but this time it's dark, the shops are closed and the streets are all deserted. All the people you seen that day, including your friend, are all at home in bed and going to sleep. You however are still there, the only one in the world that remembers that this dark place and lonely was full of life and light just hours before. But it's all okay, no need to be melancholy. It's all just a Dream.
  2. I've been guilty of this, I've even spat my dummy out and left this forum for a time when I perceived some on here for being transphobic. I've done some serious growing up since then and made attempts to be more understanding of others questions and sincere concerns. But to give you a perceptive of someone who is transgender, it can be anxiety inducing when political pundits, tabloids and governments play around with trans culture war like a soccer ball. We're at this stage where a lot of society is accepting but a good chunk isn't either and if one day society as a whole just decides they don't like this transgender stuff at all, they can honestly get rid of it quite easily, quickly and quietly, we're that small of a demographic. There wouldn't that much pushback either because understandably most people have bigger priorities than the lives of trans people, even if they are allies. It's anxiety inducing because if gender affirming services are made illegal or I'm forced to detransition by the state, it's something that will probably drive me to suicide in the worst case scenario. The best case my life would be unhappier and dysfunctional. It's hard to explain gender dysphoria to a cis person, but living and being socialized as a male is so repulsive to me that it feels harmful to the body and psyche. Imagine if a misandrist government decided the existence of men was illegal and they forced you (Leo) to transition into a woman both socially and medically, even though you know deep down in your soul you are a Man, it would give you severe dysphoria to the point it would cause damage. You would probably feel suicidal too. There is an argument to say this is an exaggerated fear of my many transgender people, but when you have popular figures like Jordan Peterson, JK Rowling and Matt Walsh nonstop fear mongering about us with a clear agenda to get rid of us of someway, you can see why many people like me can't stomach any debates about transgenderism that can be slightly touchy. We are still in vulnerable position so to speak.
  3. @Kuba Powiertowski well maybe not for a couple of decades yet, who knows
  4. For hot drinks, nothing beats a Hot Chocolate 🍫
  5. If money is the only thing that eases her pain of alienating everyone, she must be one hell of a miserable person to be around. I pity her.
  6. Twitter is a toxic platform. Musk is a toxic individual. Of course they would attract each other eventually, it's a match made in Hell. All these culture war warriors both on the Left and Right are having a field day fighting over their fleeting ideologies, it's honestly the only reason why some people keep going in life. Otherwise they would have nothing to live for. If you look at some accounts on there, you can tell how terminally online they are. They will never realize it but the numbers don't lie. It's sad in the existential type of way. The most important thing is to stop playing their game. That's how you win.
  7. Describing the ins and outs of the metaphysics of awakening is... well, there's no point, who am I really talking to other than myself? But experiencing the fact that life is an infinite fractal with no limits, none of my mistakes or regrets really matter and just having this gift of consciousness, I honestly can't find any reason to be sad, bitter or miserable about anything these days. The things and people that still annoy or make me angry doesn't come froma place of resentment but a fiery passion of opposition, the things that make me sad I make sure don't drag me down and I can't stay in a bad mood for very long now. For example, some people at the shop today we're laughing at me because I'm visibly a trans woman and I didn't really bother me at all. It came and it went, no big deal. If that happened to me five years ago, that would have ruined my entire week. Not many trans people now wouldn't be able to handle that as well as I did. If I told them why such things didn't bother me, they would call me insane! It didn't happen over night, it took a long time from my first major awakenings to now to truly a get a grip of my emotional wellbeing. Although I will concede that awakening doesn't cure depression, that's an entirely different beast to sadness altogether but even then, it's something to arduously march through for me. A challenge of consciousness, you could say. The knowledge that I am this infinite field of awareness, which literally reaches out throughout the cosmos and beyond, it's hard to feel bad about the little things in life. I'm not awake as most people are here, I feel like I've ruined my chance to take psychedelics responsibly because of my addiction to weed. Hopefully one day when I'm more responsible and developed as a person, I can dive deeper and see what Leo is really talking about. Sorry if doesn't as deep or insightful as other posts here, but to be honest it's also taken me a long time to fully articulate all of this into a post. About a year and a half long, yeah it's that's hard to put into words. Also I just happy I can share this progress with others here. I never thought life could be like this, something that is inherently Good. Cheers
  8. @Leo Gura Are you so sure about that? Surely if anyone would capitalize on Conservatives ditching Trump it would be him. Also at this point it would be suicidal for the Republican party to fall inline with Trump again.
  9. By doctor's orders, I have to quit weed with immediate effect. I get withdrawals real bad so I go on long walks to help ease the worst it. I decided to go down memory lane and walk by my old highschool, what amazed me was seeing how different everything was. The cheap outdated buildings I was so used to seeing for a good chunk of my childhood were gone, replaced by a more modern and slick complex. I wouldn't be surprised if all the teachers and staff I once was familiar with are gone too. Even the name is different. The place and time that I now hold with nostalgia no longer really exists, only after 9 years. I will admit it's a very sad feeling I wasn't expecting to have. Then I took that sentiment and placed my shoes in a elderly conservative, someone like Jordan Peterson or even my grandparents. Their childhoods, hometowns, friends, schooling, struggles, triumphs, music that would have been new to them and other things they thought were normal... Not only its all gone but the world is rapidly changing before their eyes. It must be a sadness more intense than mine, probably existentially terrifying too. I always say to myself, "I'll never be a conservative, I'll always make sure I'll educate myself throughout myself and not become ignorant like my boomer grandparents." But having this insight changed my understanding of the issue as I get older and the world rapidly changes even further, I might be even more scared and confused as them. I probably wouldn't want to understand by that age. Conservatives can be horribly bigoted and cruel at times, but I understand (even if it's just a little taste) why their concerns should be taken more seriously. It's a very humbling experience.
  10. I think she's just a pick-me and a grifter, although her staunch stance against pedophilia and child grooming is commendable.
  11. @Danioover9000 @Danioover9000 (Sorry about the gore above not sure how to get rid of it.) Some interesting stuff in this thread to consider, a few new angles to look. I don't think JP is evil by any means if that was the impression I gave, I have a very strong bias against conservatism and I just think most of the ideology is repugnant (while other parts of it I find admirable). I'll admit there is some resistance for me to fully understand it, although I probably should for my own sake.
  12. I don't see how his sudden jump into the spotlight excuses him of being a hateful grifter. Also it's not like his points can be presented in a more civil way, his points are why people find him repugnant. Maybe it's a little hard for a non-trans person to understand because there's a few of us to relate too, but when you have someone call Elliott's Paige's surgeon a butcher for simply performing top surgery on a consenting adult, it sets off so many red flags and alarm bells that what ever else that person says that can be considered a "good point", it's irrelevant. It just comes off as Nazi-esque to me.
  13. Leo says JP has a lot of honesty and integrity for a rightwinger. That's probably true, he's definitely smarter than the average person I would suspect. I've seen a few videos where he's charitable to differing ideologies like Islam but when it comes to transgender people and transgenderism, suddenly it's an evil ideology and we're all evil people. Just took a look to see if he's ever had a conversation with a trans person and to my knowledge he hasn't, he's spoken to plenty of people who have an interest on pushing anti-trans agendas to wide audience though, funnily enough. I'm not buying this crap that the left misunderstands Mr. Peterson, I think they understand him perfectly fine for what he is. Now if people wanna listen to whatever he has to say on anything, I think people should and he should have the right to say anything he on his mind, no matter how hateful. I think he's a shameless grifter using peusdo-intellectualism as a cloak for his bigotry. I don't want to listen to people who think I'm apart of some ideology to destroy the west just because I'm transgender. Perhaps you should compromise with people who don't quite understand and maybe feel a little resistant, sure, but when you have JP saying Elliot Page's surgeon is a butcher and keeps constantly fighting this anti trans culture war for years now on big platforms, are you really that surprised when many trans activists and people on the left want nothing to do with him?
  14. @Jannes Trans people like me and your friend can't go a minute without our legitimacy or existence questioned or laughed out, it's really humiliating and degrading. No wonder the suicide rate for us is so high. After a while I'm questioning whether I'm respecting myself being on this forum or not, I don't think I am. Yh fuck it I'm done with forum and, y'all can fun with your culture war bullshit. I'm better than this. @Leo Gura thank you for all of the content you've put out throughout the years, it's been life changing for me. Take care.
