Yes Chaz was a chick, now a dude...

I don't personally know anyone that goes though that, but as mean as kids are now a days, that can't be easy growing up knowing your something other people think you aren't.

bjmorgan,

Nothing so derivative. I like wordplay so my nick is a play on words and the nature of virtual media.

Nemo = Latin for No-one or Nobody.
121 = One to One

So, what better pseudonym online than one which translates as "Nobody one to one"


Steamboateng,
No fear of my changing it. I've always believed that if you leave something enigmatic you can learn a lot about people by how they interpret it. Certain interpretations indicate the sort of mentality and viewpoint I'd have no interest associating with. So a little ambiguity is a useful initial screening tool.

As to Chaz Bono... Well I've treated quite a few people with gender identity disorder. Some truly were in situations where their identity and mental processes and chromosomal gender were in conflict. Some were just very, very mixed up in all manner of ways. Either way though they were people in pain. I've always thought that so long as they weren't injuring anyone else then I simply wished them peace and emotionally and physically fulfilling relationships with their partner or partners, irrespective of gender or gender identification. I don't think judging and railing against them is particularly helpful in increasing humanity's net happiness and tolerance.

In reality societal notions of binary gender identity are more social constructs than biological fact ( we have XXY, XO, XYY and all manner of other uni and polymorphisms which impact on brain development, hormonal balance and gender/role identification etc). That doesn't stop society persecuting those who don't abide by the construct though. Insecure social groupings ( and individuals ) tend to identify themselves more by their opposition to characteristics of "the other" than by their embrace of their own characteristics.

Years ago I was in school with a woman who was trans-gender. As a male he'd been an active-duty infantry officer who served in Desert Storm. Married with a child. When I knew her she was post-hormones, had breasts, dressed as a female, used the ladies room, but had male goodies yet. Had been to court to change names and had been declared a legal female for drivers license, etc., purposes. Still married to the same woman. Problem was, the wife was in love with another man, and her "husband" was in love with him as well. The husband/former male needed the wife's insurance while she (ain't pronouns great?) was in school, so they hesitated to divorce. The marriage was legal in MN for all purposes, but not for federal legal purposes. This despite the fact that if they divorced, and changed their minds, they would not be allowed to legally re-marry in MN. The child of course remained the child of both, with a birth certificate listing the father's male name.

And she was looking for work at a large, white-shoe law firm. This was, despite the above, the biggest problem of all.

Been to Canada. That may work. There's a joke about that. It also involves hockey. But don't think I should repeat here.[;)]

The movie is pretty interesting, though it felt a little heavy handed in places for my tastes. I'm personally not much in the market for trading freedom and personal responsibility for the (in my mind completely imaginary) promise of security. I completely understand the desire for some type of security in a world which denies it if you look with open eyes, but no concept of a precariat can convince me that people won't trade far too dearly in the long term to feel safe or secure or as if the world will be a kind place in the long term.

"Chile" is inherently funny. Jus' sayin'.

It were the Summer of '63 when I rode with General Stuart. Them Pinkerton boys thought we were headed to Pennsylvania but we fooled 'em. We rode all the way behind Yankee lines and captured Iwo Jima and then we found silage for 10,000 horses just a sittin' in this little town. I heard tell General Meade was mighty angry.
