celebrating myself this Valentine’s Day

No significant other shares their life with me, a fact that usually annoys me on Valentine’s Day. This year I decided not to fuss about it, choosing instead to celebrate my healthy love for myself. So I’m wearing cute Valentine’s Day lingerie for my own joy. Girls, if you find yourself single next Valentine’s Day, […]

spinning masculinity into a seduction tool

Last night at my favorite bar I found myself flirting with two stunning women. Delivered bold masculine technique punctuated by proud feminine presence. I stood out hot and I knew it. Through my maneuvering I made it extremely clear which side of the tracks I walked on that night. A man in their party saw […]

“Coolness” is a measure of creative information’s degree of flow through a social network. Individuals merely channel and contribute to this flow as it progresses through such networks, they do not contain or retain coolness within themselves. However some individuals prove more receptive to the incoming information and more effective at transmitting it forward than […]

power and the art of seduction

In my last post, “power and sexual technique”, I urged women to gain leverage in their romantic relationships by increasing their skill in bed. More importantly, I developed this idea as a strategy transgender women may employ to decrease their overall marginalization—to help close the power differential that exists when straight men sexualize us for […]

power and sexual technique

Competence proves extremely sexy. My firm desire (pun intended) is that all women, particularly transgender women, take complete ownership over their presence and their bodies. Presence emits power. Ownership delivers power. Here I refer to “power” in a feminine network sense, enabling women full constructive influence within the relationships they build and expand. These relationships […]

tracking my gender transition through computational linguistics and machine learning

I wrote 299 blog posts in the last decade, roughly half on badassdatascience.com and half on genderpunk360.com. Produced most of the Badass Data Science content while publicly expressing as a man, and most of the Gender Punk 360 content as a woman. Some articles appear on both blogs—for example this one—and in the analysis described […]

flaunt those legs girl!

Transgender women typically sport great legs, due to pre-HRT (hormone replacement therapy) muscle development combined with post-HRT muscle shaping. The result stands out! So flaunt those legs girl! I never wear pants. And remember that high heels will further accentuate your legs! For tips and video on successfully living in heels see my post “the […]

how to validate someone who won’t talk with you

In my post “on love“, I describe active validation of one’s beloved as a key tactic for transmitting constructive love. I further discuss how that validation must express in terms of things eternal, rather than in terms of the one sending the validation. In other words, while stating your beloved’s value to you proves important, […]

Welcome back ladies! Last week I introduced this series and proposed some garments that I believe address the specific needs of many transgender women’s bodies. But then I realized we need to step back to basics; that I need to educate readers a bit. So before we continue with fashion and style recommendations, I thought […]
