Journey to Authenticity: An In Depth Glance.

Posted 04-12-2013 at 02:31 AM by Cookie Monster
Having written very briefly about my decision to transition, and then glossing over those next few years, it seems fitting to write tonight about those missing years. while you are reading, please keep in mind that revisiting this stuff is painful for me, but I feel like there are some people on the forum that could really benefit from a first-hand account of transitioning. It isn't something that is just done on a whim.

When I first came to terms with my own transgenderism, I hit...

Journey to Authenticity: From Dylan to Daphne.

Posted 04-11-2013 at 02:36 AM by Cookie Monster
In light of recent discussion on the forum, in particular comments regarding people who might transition simply to enjoy their fifteen minutes of fame, I've decided to make public a summation of my experience. This is intended solely as an aid to give anyone that I can, more clarification on this matter.
To save time and prevent painful flashbacks on my part, I am going to skip detailing my upbringing and simply discuss my adventures throughout the actual transition process.

This gives me a unique perspective on a lot of things, but in particular on the issue of transsexuals in combat sports.

Double Standard MMA Fans?

Posted 03-04-2013 at 12:36 AM by Cookie Monster
Have we as MMA fans truly forgotten the origins of our wonderful sport? It wasn't so long ago that we were all banding together to insist that state officials reconsider their stance on this 'bloodsport.' What is it exactly that is so different between MMA and WMMA that leads to one being widely accepted and encouraged, and the other to being frowned upon and shunned from the mainstream?
