Love Letter to the FLH

It’s been a while since I posted just about Motorcycles, and after a hectic couple of weeks, when I have not been feeling terribly positive, I thought I would explore some of the things that make me happy… Apart from the remarkably special people in my...

In Her Eyes You See No Pride

Today is “Pride Day” in Busselton. The Main Street will be awash with Rainbow flags, and smiling faces. If last year is anything to go by, many many smiling faces. Right now, I’m finding it difficult to feel Pride. Large portions of society reject my...
Zero Tolerance

Zero Tolerance

I may be a little deaf, but if I listen carefully, I can hear a whisper. A constant droning voice, and it is coming from all around. “Fuck Off” it seems to say. Or perhaps “Fuck You.” Softly spoken voices are frequently indistinct to my messed...
Quest for Adequacy…..

Quest for Adequacy…..

It’s very hard to be positive against an advancing wall of rejection. Up until this week, whilst I may not have made progress, I was successful in treading water. My frantic efforts, were at least keeping me in the same place. I was fighting the advancing...
Valentines…….

Valentines…….

I could quite easily make a list of the people I love. This would not be an arduous task at all. There are many people in my life for whom I have the utmost fondness. I could also make a list of the people for whom I have an almost uncontrollable loathing. That list...
Certified !!!!!

Certified !!!!!

So at the conclusion of my hearing today, the Gender Board of WA acknowledged the validity of my challenge. My long standing marriage to Jane is intact, and legally recognised. As a result, there is no obstacle to the WA Government providing me with a Gender...
How Many Knobs Is Perfect ?

How Many Knobs Is Perfect ?

My Day In Court

My Day In Court

I recently received an email inviting me to have my day in Court…Again….. It is almost a year to the day, since my first appearance, but I now have a second appointment with the ageing legal dinosaur that is the Gender Board of WA to seek legal recognition...
So Long and Thanks for all the Boobs

So Long and Thanks for all the Boobs

The wonders of medical science has provided me with a reasonable pair of breasts. I like them, whilst I may secretly wish they were a little “Fuller” I remain immensely grateful they are there, and they are mine, and no scalpels were involved. Of course,...
Happy New Year – 2019

Happy New Year – 2019

The Christmas and the Festive period raced past in a blur of visits, meals, and presents..It was positive, upbeat, and fun. My long planned Theremin performance of Christmas music didn’t happen, but I was busy with so many other little projects. On the subject...
A Very Traditional Christmas

A Very Traditional Christmas

How to celebrate, or if you wish, ignore Christmas, is a very personal choice. Over the years, certain traditions, and routines have grown out of our particular brand of festive celebrations…. As a result here at the Frog and Bromide, for us at least, it was a...
Sporting Dillema

Sporting Dillema

Question – Why do we have Mens and Womens divisions in sport ? The answer is of course obvious, because the physiological differences render this a fairer way to approach competitive sport. It’s not just about size and muscles, there are numerous factors...
Heliophobic ?

Heliophobic ?

Heliophobia is a fear of the Sun…Whilst this may go some way to describing my condition, I don’t think its quite the same as the dread I feel December, through to February, and possibly even March. I’m not strictly speaking scared of the Sun, its...
Gender ‘Bored’ of WA

Gender ‘Bored’ of WA

Around a year ago I applied to the WA Gender Board for a Recognition Certificate. This is a legal document acknowledging my Gender reassignment, and permitting me to change my Gender Marker. My request for the certificate was denied, because section 15(3) of the...

Not a Statistic – Not Now – Not Ever

The last few days have been tough, much harder than usual . I’ve been living through one hell of an episode of  Arthur’s Blip. Essential support, and care is in place, and progress is being made.  This weekend in Perth is the Annual Pride parade....
