Skip to comments.Goodbye husband, hello wife
Posted on 08/09/2011 6:04:03 AM PDT by outpostinmass2
I will find out for myself soon enough. I am not a transgendered person, but I am happily married to one. Her name is Lina and she is a male-to-female transsexual. She is 47, and I am 53. We met at Logan Airport on Valentines Day in 2003, when we both lived in the area (we have since moved to North Carolina for work). I had left The Boston Globe copy desk the year before to be a freelance writer, and I wrote about a crazy ice-skating trip he took in my column for the Globe Travel section, Where They Went. After that, we dated, fell in love, lived together, and married. The things I loved about Wessel are what I love about Lina, and, yes, in a romantic way. She is big-hearted, intelligent, emotionally mature, athletic, and adventurous. She has great legs. We had been together for almost two years, but married for only two months, when Wessel shared his news. He wanted to be my wife, not my husband. He had come to this realization with a sense of clarity and joy. I reacted with confusion and despair. Had there been signs? Yes and no. I knew he had struggled with societys rigid gender lines, but so had I. I knew he sometimes liked to dress in womens clothing, but advice columnists and a host of psychologists will tell you that does not necessarily mean a man wants to be a woman. We talked about it a lot and he assured me he didnt.

It probably won’t be much longer before we start normalizing cancer. It’s easier to deal with that way ... you don’t have to treat it.
Thank you for not posting pictures.
Pretty soon it will be; “societies strict species lines”.
Maybe these people think it's unfair they have to live above water; and think they are really meant to be a fish and live in the ocean.
Or maybe they are really a cat trapped in a humans body? Or maybe....
Why do we treat mental illness as “diversity”?
The man mutilated himself.
If my wife decided to become a man I would first be very, very depressed, then I’d leave and try (probably unsuccessfully) to take the kids. I guess that’s just my intolerant, unenlightened world view.
That said, God made these folks, too, and they do not seem like evil people to me. Or - if they are - I guess I couldn’t bring myself to stone ‘em.
This is a biological absolute.
Disgusting! Surely the celebration of this sick depravity is a sign that the end is near!
Git the barf bag.
I beg to differ! Anyone who undergoes sex reassignment is deeply deeply disturbed. Probably, in this case, from being named Wessel!
“Lina” is 47 and you are 53? Almost time for BOTH OF YOU to get your prostrates checked.
FREAKS. Typical Democrat voters.
Both are butt ugly.
Past time, aren’t you supposed to get the glove at 40?
That is because they are liberals.
No phrases better proclaim, to the rest of the world, the utter decline into delusional dementia of the West's Liberal Society . Any sound analysis must conclude "this can not end well."
The only hope is that those in the West, who have resisted the Left's social engineering and brainwashing, are sufficient in numbers, convictions and skills to save the West, before the flood of third world disorder, poverty and tyranny, that Leftist dementia has invited, completely swamps us all.
What the heck is wrong with these people? I just don't understand anymore...
Man! I feel like a woman.
I think I just threw up in mouth a little. Where’s that ACT mouthwash? And a bar of Lava soap and a wire brush for my mind.
Actually, that's pretty far down on the list. Brain-dead, clueless moron was my first impression.
Why even post this garbage?
Not long ago I volunteered to help the director of a New England nonprofit get media coverage and, we hoped, more funding, for his organization that helps transgendered youth.
"Helps" "transgendered youth"?
Helping such folk would seem to consist of resolving whatever delusions cause them to be confused as to their gender. I suspect that the "New England nonprofit" instead encourages them to wallow in their delusions.
Same reason Little Miss Mark Morford's drivel should occasionally be posted: to chronicle the Left's descent into depravity.
Just to show what you’re up against.
Not only do we allow the mentally ill to run around loose, we celebrate them. Then people wonder why the country is becoming one big psych ward.
The Leftist cabal of activists, media, and government.

This is so true. On another thread, MrB shared this additional insight on this same theme of liberals raging against their own Creation ...
It comes from the biological fact that women get pregnant and men do not ..... the feminists have been doing everything they can to equalize this fact, and abortion is the closest they can get.
There's a few erroneous assumptions underlying this statement.
The first is that God made these people so they inherently would think they need to cut off pieces parts to be "whole." That is false. God created mankind to be perfect. We willfully discarded that in favor of sin, and humanity brought on itself the penalty for sin. The Old Testament account of Genesis indicates that the penalty is death and being cast out of the Garden of Eden into a world of decay and corruption. This means that even if there is a corrupted genetic makeup that causes some to have a predilection for rape or adultery or murder because of high testosterone levels or the so far fictional "genetic" tendency to sexual attraction to the same gender, it is still a sin to act on that predilection. It doesn't matter if society has spent 30 years trying to pretend that sexual sin is not sin because our biology makes it difficult for us to stop ourselves. All sexual sin is still sin, and the blame for that sin is solely on us, not God.
Second, very few people seem like evil people to me. Two of my former bosses come to mind, but for the most part the human definition of evil requires murder, genocide, or unconstrained sociopathic actions. That's part of how we convince ourselves we're going to Heaven when we're still trapped in our sin -- every person on the planet thinks that "I'm a pretty good person. And I'm not evil like those people." But that's not God's standard. God expects perfection. Because of our corrupt natures, we can't achieve that on our own, which is why Christ died in our place. Being a Christian doesn't mean you don't sin; it means, among other things, that you accept that Christ died as a payment for your sins and intercedes for you so that your sins don't condemn you before God.
Third, no one ever said to stone them or even punish them. I would have no problem shaming them or confronting them with the sinfulness of their actions, but it's the sin that's the problem and not the sinners. They deserve our prayers.
If you're already a Christian, you can just ignore this. But I truly hate the fallacy that "God made me this way, so however I act in conformity with my appetitive nature must be ok."
But that's just it. It's all about the attention they get when they wag it in front of the rest of the world. Hey, look at me!!!! Any other attention getting behavior is momentary but flaunting the gay thing and getting "married" gets them attention 24/7/365. Revving it up with the transgender to full blown sex change just gets them even more attention. Imagine the tingles up the leg when they get articles written about them. This need for constant attention is far from emotionally mature.
I guess I couldnt bring myself to stone em.
Do you really see any posts here that call for stoning them?
Just in case you are reading impaired, let me explain that the comments here are saying that these people are emotionally/mentally ill and should not be encouraged to continue in their perverted “lifestyle”. I have not seen a single comment — except yours — that makes any reference to doing violence against them.
Personally, I feel sorry for them in the delusions and lack of understanding of God’s design, but compassion will not cause me to see their following this path as something positive.
And I think most of us fear the pro-homo agenda because of the clear goal of making homosexuality seem normal so that the perverts can prey on children.
Reading this was sort of a like meeting aliens or visiting a strange zoo.
It is very simple. By law and in all contracts it should be stated as natural born male and natural born female.
a pile of poop is still a pile of poop even if it is renamed “senator”.
Worked for the boston globe. No need to read any further.
Huh?! Say what?! Is that what they do in France?
Why does this crap get posted anyway?
They were together for two years before he deceived her into marrying him, and than he waited until two months later to “break the news.”
Somebody here has been lying, ‘cause I don’t imagine that’s a decision made on the spur of the moment.
It’s because of crap like this I don’t buy the concept of “converting” a queer into straight. Who wants to be the experimental woman on the other end of that, knowing you’re the guy’s second choice? Blecch.
I could no longer maintain a friendship with a man who mistreated me so badly, nevermind sexual relations. You don’t mistreat someone who loves you like that. They’re both f’d up in the head, she in trying to be loyal to what passed himself off as a loving friend.
I don’t *care* how happy she claims to be. My heart weeps for her.
We probably have more in common with the aliens and the zoo animals, than with these two deranged individuals.
Agreed, but even more troubling is the Media campaign to make not only their behavior but their delusional thinking main-stream and a new reality. To those that say calling this Media social-engineering and brainwashing, is conspiratorial or far-fetched, I offer this quote:
"But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought." George Orwell
The day my guy unstraps his .40 XDM, takes off his camo Tee shirt and puts on a little black dress you can color me outta here. LOL!!!
That is an excellent analogy. Proclaim it from the hills.
