Transhuman Erotic Freedom

Your Destiny is Transgender

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en español Last week we attended a meeting of the trans section of a local PFLAG chapter. I guess there's nowhere to fit the T into the acronym, much less the fully erased B. In any case, it's clear these folks provide an important service to the trans community. Both parents of trans kids and trans parents were there, with the adult trans experience and wisdom helping the parents better cope with natural anxieties, given the extreme social pressures their children face. As you know from my paper Read More

Starting Out Young to Build the Temple

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... When you were a teen did you go to DeMolay? Or perhaps you were a Daughter of Job? Or a Rainbow Girl? Were both your grandfathers 33rd degree Masons? Was your mom Most Worthy Grand Matron of the Eastern Star? And did you ever figure out what it was all about? Yes, you knew you were always supposed to be really nice to everybody because that was the “square” thing to do, in a culture where “square” was a compliment rather than an insult, and then there was the Jacques DeMolay business. DeMolay, the last ...

What Kind of Nation is America?

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en español Many people today, uneducated in the ideals upon which our nation is founded, will claim that we are a “Christian” nation. Others, slightly more respectful of reality, may call us “Judeo-Christian” or even “monotheistic.” All of these notions miss the real point. Though these terms may accurately name some contributory cultural sources, the founding ideals of our nation are vastly superior to the theologies, dogmas, doctrines, and moralities of any and all human religion. Consider the mottoes and symbols of our nation that bombard us at every turn, and meditate for once ...

Kinky Twin Cities

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... One of the great joys of VenusPlusX and Team COLUMBIA’s presence at Creating Change 2011 was meeting people from the local Minneapolis - St. Paul community who found our open acceptance and promotion of freedom in all matters erotic very much in line with their own experiences and understandings. Team COLUMBIA’s exposition and unification of all forms of sex and gender expression and satisfaction, including many themes and forms not otherwise visible at conferences like Creating Change, set a new standard for erotic inclusiveness, attracting the attention of the local queer community and ...

Join the Revolution

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... An increasing sexual free world is appearing on the horizon. Can you feel it? Touch it? See it? Haven't you at least noticed that the sexual repression crusaders are crumbling under the weight of their own hypocrisy and fear? This "New Age of Erotic Freedom" will be elucidated on Saturday, February 5 (10:45 AM at Minneapolis' Hotel Ivy) by Dr. Loraine Hutchins, a well-known erotic adventurer, educator, and activist, and Dan Massey, a life long student of human mythology and co-founder of Team COLUMBIA and VenusPlusX.org. Their presentation will put forth the historical legacy, the present day status, and ...

We are all alike…

Sexual Freedom

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... Today Autumn Sandeen posted a wonderful comment on Pam's House Blend, "Why Transgender Activism". There's no question mark at the end of the title, so we understand this is not asking the question, but answering it, and a fine answer it is. Basically, Autumn explains very clearly the dynamics which cause certain affinity groups of variant but related personalities to develop a broadened identity and serve as "umbrella" groups for a wide range of personal types. In particular, Autumn argues for the obvious need in the transgender community to have a broad umbrella group, ...

Get a Second Life

Have you ever dreamed of flying naked high above a city? Or making love to an eight-foot-tall humanoid? If you've netflixed James Cameron's Avatar some lonely weekday night in the past few months, chances are you have. Imagine and experience a virtual reality where you are free to privately and anonymously explore your sexuality and gender, to understand all the possibilities without any judgment, limitations, or consequences. On Friday and Saturday, February 4 and 5, 2011, at The Hotel Ivy in downtown Minneapolis, VenusPlusX.org is sponsoring a 90-minute workshop and two noontime demonstrations all about the alternate universe of Second Life, ...

Unity Without Uniformity

Sexual Freedom

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... COLUMBIA is a radically new philosophy of being that emphasizes the ideas and ideals that draw people together in mutual support, as opposed to the secondary qualities that differentiate one person from another. We are activists wholly dedicated to the sexual liberation of humanity worldwide. We are certain that, if all recognize their common nature and stand together, we can change the common culture, since such change benefits all. Last summer  I wrote a short paper for Woodhull Freedom Foundation's State of Sexual Freedom in the US Report 2010 showing how all the labels ...
