Listen here: HotFRM 233 (133MB 58m21s)

Today, I have a conversation with one of the bravest people I know.   Buck Angel is a transman who began his transition from a woman to a man twenty-five years ago amid personal turmoil, against the tide of social convention, and during a time when little was understood about how to medically transition from female to male.     He was a trailblazer in the pornography industry and became famous for his work in that space.   He was then and still is an activist. Today, he considers himself the Tranpa and an elder of the transsexual/transgender community.     He spends his energy working with the LGBTQ+ community, with youth, the homeless, and others.   He has developed sexual and other wellness products exclusively for the transman community and has a cannabis business in California.

We talk about how he feels about this time in American history, possible ways to heal the divide, and what his fears and hopes are for the country and for the transgender community. 

Other topics discussed:

California Senate Bill 132, Canadian Bill C16 (gender identity and gender expression federal protection), Jordan Peterson, J.K. Rowling, Feminism, Trump, Biden, Harris, Russia, COVID-19, Active Measures, seed to sell.

Another bill to note:  Canadian Bill C6 (to end conversion therapy)

Definitions:

Tranpa: An elder transman who has wisdom to share with the younger generation.

Cisgender : Born biologically as a male or female

TERF : Trans-exclusionary radical feminist.
