Just The Usual (June 20, 2016)

Why
The surprise?

When
I express
The night of ignorance

With their death of logic

Author's note: The following link list some of the barriers that's faced, by the trans-community.

  1. Yes, the "professionals" cant seem to see outside the box. Hard to find one with alternative consciousness, but when one does it is such a relief. I had similar encounters trying to get chronic fatigue diagnosed till I found an alternative specialist - he was awesome!

  2. It is very sad about the barriers. Hopefully, with time, things will change.
