The link works for me, it goes directly to Boy George's video titled Yes We Can

 

I swear, I did  not sent any "funny" pictures

I know. The ad was inserted by YouTube. I was just commenting because I thought the bra was a bit strange.

Thank you for letting know that, for a moment I got very much displeased with the link I said. I shall need to be more cautious next time sending music links. Again, I apologize Dana!

I bought bras online recently so I guess that's where the cookies came from.

Years ago, when I was coming to terms with who I am, i would describe that moment in the mirror ... that moment when you are dressed as your true self and you look deep into the eyes reflected back at you ... and your heart booms inside your chest as if it will break in two ...and, instead of seeing the man looking back, there was someone else ... someone you kept hidden for so long.... and i would describe that feeling, that moment as ...

 

... "home" ...

 

My heart was beating and I was finally "home".

 

In Peter Gabriel's Solsbury Hill an eagle (transition) offers to comes to take him "home". And if listen to the song as a song about wrestling with the idea of transition, I dare you to try and not to cry.

 

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing, stretching every nerve
Had to listen, had no choice
I did not believe the information
Just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom, boom, boom
"Son", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"
To keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut
'Til I thought of what I'll say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom, boom, boom
"Hey", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"
(Hey, back home)
When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom, boom, boom
"Hey", I said, "you can keep my things, they've come to take me home"

one of my favorite artists and one of my favorite songs.  wow! you are right-i did cry. the song has new meaning for me now.  didn't Peter use facial paint and odd costumes when he first started performing?  can i just add that when my heart was going boom boom boom-i was so happy at what i saw in the mirror.

Yes Peter Gabriel did wear costumes when he performed.  I believe I read his wife made many of them.  

 

This is a wonderful song.  Interestingly only in the first chorus "grab your things, I've come to take you home" does he say "Son."  After that its "Hey" leaving one to figure out who is he is now.

Wow, when you're right, you're right!

Maybe a little bit of a stretch to say it can be "about" trans, but I still think this one is very fitting here:

 

 

I have trouble not tearing up whenever I listen to that, no matter what it is I'm going through. (It's also one of my absolute favorites to play in Rock Band on both voice and guitar.) That "grab your things, I've come to take you home" line in Solsbury Hill with its comforting "being watched over" theme is what reminded me of this one. Oh man, now my waterworks are really going!

 

And, of course, I've mentioned it probably too many times already, but Bon Jovi's It's My Life.

Here's something I bet no one expected to come across here!

 

But it's totes soups adorbs, and gosh darn it, it has a good underlying message that's appropriate for us all!

have you heard this one; "Jim the Jinn" from The Truth about Charlie  music from the motion picture. It has some interesting lyrics.  My favorite is-"Daddy was just a girl in disguise."  It applies for MtF or FtM.

This song does it for me

 

 

Kyrie

Kyrie Eleison
Kyrie Eleison
Kyrie
The wind blows hard against this mountain side
Across the sea into my soul
It reaches into where I cannot hide
Setting my feet upon the road
My heart is old, it holds my memories
My body burns a gemlike flame
Somewhere between the soul and soft machine
Is where I find myself again
Kyrie Eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?
Kyrie Eleison, on a highway in the light
When I was young I thought of growing old
Of what my life would mean to me
Would I have followed down my chosen road
Or only wished what I could be?
Kyrie Eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?
Kyrie Eleison, on a highway in the light
Kyrie Eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?
Kyrie Eleison, on a highway in the light
Kyrie Eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?
Kyrie Eleison, on a highway in the light
Kyrie Eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?
Kyrie Eleison, on a highway in the light
Kyrie Eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?

      This is irrelevant. There is a lot of diversity amongst Christians, as every Cristian is quick to point out whenever someone accuses Christianity of being homophobic, but the not allowing Christians to talk about Christ in public would immediately cause every Christian in the country to start screaming that the Chrisian religion is being eradicated. A Jew who saw himself as primarily a German citizen would have still been killed in the holocaust. Primary identity does not matter, only whether or not you are part of the group.   It also makes life difficult, and makes you feel alone, as any community interaction will break concealment. A community is important because being trans comes with difficulties unique to trans people, you can't ask a cis person about stuff like binders, and having to deal with problems only you have that you can't discuss with anyone else is dangerous.   Do you live in Florida? Ron DeSantis is the current favorite amongst republicans for president. He is isolating Floridian trans people to the point that many are just leaving.   By weak state, do you mean stopping States from enacting laws that are harmful? Taking away power from the State? In that case, I agree! Let's make a broad law, one that applies to all the States, stopping all legislature from excluding on basis of gender, sexuality, and gender identity on all levels of government. Something on a national level. What would you call that? Maybe... Federal law. That sounds catchy, right?   For anyone who didn't catch on, the italics were a joke.

      "In Video, Trump Vows To Target Doctors Treating Trans People If Re-Elected"   This is the topic. (above)  I fail to see where mass shootings and gun control have anything to do with it. Please get back on topic or I will lock it.   MaryEllen Forum Director

      I'm not sure this thread had much do do with gun control in the beginning.   I don't know if there is much to be done anyway.  Let's face it, guns are already here.  Perhaps it would be better if that wasn't the case, but… I think  mass shootings are a separate issue.    The subject is more about using the powers of the government to persecute a minority.
    • MiraF
      From an article about mass school shootings: " While seemingly random, experts say these shootings typically have one thing in common: they mostly happen in small, rural towns.   Back in 2018, the Associated Press reported that of the 10 deadliest school shootings in the U.S., all but one happened in towns with fewer than 75,000 residents. Most of them were in cities with less than 50,000 people. Uvalde's population fits these criteria, sitting at 15,860. " The reason people don't see shootings in their rural neiborhoods is that you are in small towns. LA accounts for 10% of the California population, and rural towns account for 6% of the population. If there is a mass shooting in LA, 10% of Californians get to say, "there was a mass shooting in my city", and if there is a mass shooting in a rural town, 0% of Californians get to say, "there was a mass shooting in my town", so even though there are more mass shootings per capita in rural areas, less people realize this is happening in places like theirs. Just because it hasn't happened in your town doesn't mean mass shootings happen less in towns like yours, in fact they happen more often.   Source of the quote: https://bakersfieldnow.com/news/local/why-mass-school-shootings-continue-to-happen-in-small-towns

      Yeah.  I totally get it. I'm pretty sure this was what was really going on.   This happened a lot.   I mean, how could you not?
    • MiraF
      False. There are higher rates of mass shootings in US states with more relaxed gun control laws: https://www.bmj.com/company/newsroom/higher-rates-of-mass-shootings-in-us-states-with-more-relaxed-gun-control-laws/ If what you said is true, how come there are far fewer mass shootings in countries with robust gun control laws? Myth: Gun violence happens everywhere. The NRA often points to incidents of gun violence abroad to argue gun laws are ineffective and such widespread gun violence is not unique to America. However, the evidence tells a different story. Fact: While most countries experience occasional incidents of gun violence, the gun violence epidemic is a uniquely American experience. The United States has the highest level of gun violence across developed nations, with a gun homicide rate 26 times greater than that of peer nations.14 This number is even higher among young Americans, who experience a gun homicide rate 49 times greater than that of other developed nations. Source: https://www.americanprogress.org/article/debunking-myths-the-gun-lobby-perpetuates-following-mass-shootings/   PS: Myth: Mass shooters are likely to target gun-free zones. Gun lobbyists often deploy this myth to deter legislative efforts to limit gun carrying in certain locations that are considered particularly sensitive or unsuitable for guns, such as schools, houses of worship, or government buildings. However, the overwhelming majority of fatal mass shootings in the United States occur in locations where guns are allowed or not explicitly banned, such as in private homes or public locations. Fact: Most mass shootings occur in areas where guns are permitted. The gun lobby often claims that 98 percent of mass shootings occur in gun-free zones, but research has thoroughly debunked this. Of the 156 mass shootings that occurred from 2009 to 2016, only 10 percent occurred in gun-free zones. The majority of these shootings—63 percent—occurred in private homes.

      Always a Star Trek fan, and I grew up with TOS, TNG, and DS9.  Enterprise came along when I was a teenager, and I enjoy the recent series that are being produced.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      The young vote Democrat because their schools taught them to do so since the 90's, and higher education is controlled by leftists.  No surprise there.  When the typical Republican candidate mostly pleases the aging Boomers and has little to offer the young, they aren't going to do well.  "MAGA" doesn't mean anything to those who aren't old enough to remember when America was great....
