What Would You Do If This Was Your Son?



His name is Micah, he's in his twenties and a singer. I'm thinking he's got work done, around his hips (I sure hope so) and he is obviously very feminine. Naturally I tend to be very liberal and empathetic towards those with other orientations and ways of thinking. For instance, I do believe that some people are born as one sex but within them they feel the exact opposite. I remember watching Cher's transgendered son, Chaz Bono on TV once and something he said stuck. He said most people take it for granted that they feel like the sex they were born as, unfortunately a few people were born with some (defect) which causes them to feel entirely different from the sex that they are. And I can understand this, to an extent at least.

But seeing pictures of this man called Micah has got me feeling all kinds of way and none of them is good. So what could Micah's story be; I'm a very wide hipped woman trapped in a man's body? I just think it's absurd that someone would do this to their body.

  4. I'm conflicted, but its hard to wrap one's head around. I totally understand your comment about Chaz Bono as my husband always says just be grateful you are the way you are, afterall you really had no control deciding you liked boys or girls. That just came naturally. What about those who felt different right from when they were toddlers, without even knowing yet that there were relationships to be had? Its a sore topic, almost explosive. But to your question, what if that were my son? I honestly don't know. Do you disown him? Yorubas say you don't throw the bad kid out to the leopards to devour anyhow. But I find our tolerance limits don't extend to this type of thing. I remember when my son was 5 or 6 yrs old and a fellow parent approached me saying he threatened her daughter to show him her panties or else he would withdraw his friendship. While I was horrified to say the least and thinking of how to approach the topic and the appropriate punishment for even having the presence of mind to blackmail, my husband was like on the other hand, thank God at least now we know his orientation. On to the next!! It was hard not to laugh, but again, be grateful for where you are. Just my muddled, murky thoughts.

  5. The whole thing is just funny.

    I don't even want to imagine the scenario you asked. His hips tho, I covet without all the extra fat that usually comes along with it.

  7. This pic has really gone viral..and just found out that it's a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 1,000 males called "klinefelter syndrome" n it's not hereditary (thanks to Google, though I find it strange)..
    From research, the male is born with an extra X chromosome and has unusual physical traits like enlarged beasts, sparse body hair, wide hips, poor beard growth, female-type pubic pattern, and small testicles as the penis doesn't reach adult size.
    It can be treated if d male is given 'testosterone injection', a hormone needed for sexual development which is an ongoing treatment throughout the man's life..but it doesn't guarantee fertility for the male.

    Hian!!..nawa oo.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
