I’m currently in the process of discerning whether to transition or not. In this process I’ve done lots of research about the Catholic Church’s position on transgenderism, as well as a lot of praying to figure out God’s will. I’ve been appalled by the amount of misinformation out there on the web, which has spurred me on to provide a space on the internet for more balanced views on transgenderism. Even though God hasn’t revealed to me which way to go in my own life, it’s clear to me that transsexualism is a complicated issue, and those who think transsexuals are all going to Hell are gravely misinformed.
I hope you enjoy this blog as I take a spiritual and intellectual journey into the trans world. I hope to bring two worlds which are often assumed to contradict each other – Catholicism and transgenderism – together in harmony. My hope is that I’m the person to do it. I am trans to the max: I’m just a nice girl looking to be myself and let my soul shine. I’m nerdy Catholic to the max: I read G. K. Chesterton, watch The Princess Bride, go to daily Mass, and gobble up everything Pope Francis says.
My patron Saints are Mary Magdalene, Joan of Arc, Teresa of Avila, and Mother Theresa of Calcutta.
My hobbies include film making, writing, poetry, reading Jane Austen, praise & worship, boxing, cooking, collaging, swing dancing, and singing.
I’m slightly obsessed with the color purple, probably because it’s one of those random details of my personality that got repressed along the way.
I study philosophy and film, mostly film. See y’all in Hollywood!
I’m Italian American and oh-so proud of it.
I love you all, and I hope you enjoy my blog! Please stop by again!
