Mary McGonigal – 94years old and a beautiful Mum.


So I thought I needed to write down what has happened over the last few days, so others can see what happened and see the beautiful send off my Mum received.


For the last 3 weeks and more, every morning I have rung Atawhai Retirement Home, to check in on my Mum. She hasn’t been well for some time and her passing was not a surprise. We were waiting for it. On Tuesday 23rd June, I rang and was to...

If you are a TransSEXUAL, you need to read this.

I have had Gender Reassignment Surgery.
I have been there, done that.
I am well down the track, totally happy in myself.
I stand up and speak out for Transsexuals. For those who follow in my and others footsteps.
Those born with a body that doesnt match their soul.
Those who believe in the binary of male and female. Those who know who they are and aren't floaters on a spectrum.
Those who believe in the spectrum are welcome to as long as they dont force their beliefs up...

Just kick the Transsexuals around MP's.

So in the last few days, we have seen the Young Labour pass two remits at their conferences backing Gender Reassignment Surgery - Good on them for recognising a need and doing something.

But the good ended there.

A so called journalist decided to make a name for themselves and create a story, attempting to show the Labour Party up.
Labour Politicians were interviewed and, not suprisingly, were totally ignorant about it. Why should they have known, as the remits were only...

"Be careful What You Wish For"

The title of my first ever fiction work.

I never realised the amount of effort that needs to go into writting a half pie decent book! Constantly I found I had to research information and was taken away from writing to seek it. Ok, I want a mansion in Miami but you cant just say that You need to build the dream and so I hunted real estate sites discovering their value, how many bedrooms, games rooms, pools, rifle ranges, boat berths and more. It takes time.

You want a super y...

I haven't written anything in here for 10 months and have been thinking I need to start again.
So as this is something that interests and away from the normal Transgender/Transsexual issues and due to a comment made to me the other day, lets start here.

The comment was....

I hate being right.

So last nite I was attacked on a facebook site yet again. I can handle it even tho it does hurt.
Why was I attacked? Because I posted my opinion that differed from some others. (yet again)

The thread was about altering ones voice and for those who wish to, its a good thread. I actually have no problem with those who do wish to alter their voice and totally understand why one would want to. However to me I see it as being deceptive and false. A lie. I hate and loathe lies because ...

Equality for all? or some?

Posted by racheal_storm on June 3, 2012 at 8:10 PM Comments comments (9)

This relates to recent incidence on the net, mainly Facebook but also elsewhere. You see person Z, a well respected Transsexual, a holder of a NZ medal, who has sat in High places and spoken up for Transsexuals was booted from a FB page and accused on anti sementics wrongly by H, the vice chair of that organisation.

This is nothing against Z as I respect her greatly.

Seems it is all sorted now as Z has posted in several places that it is resolved, thanks ...

WTF - Practise what you seek to preach.

WTF –Practise what you seek to preach.


First up, I am going to open myself up publicly here again but it isn’t seeking sympathy or attention but to try to promote awareness. This is highly personal to me for a range of reasons but it is also similar to alot of Transsexuals. I’m pigheaded, obstinate, arrogant, proud, broad shoulders, stable, opinionated, confident, have a heart, care and more. Right? But I’m also vulnerable, weak, emotional, ho...
