Transgender Commitment Therapy

Transgender Commitment TherapyThe theme of therapy for the transgendered continues with another caption along the lines of last week’s Transgender Conversion Therapy. With all this talk of therapy, you could be forgiven for thinking I’m in therapy myself, but that’s not so (unless you count self-help books). What’s touching in this little story is the sacrifice the wife is making for her husband—and maybe there’s another theme in there somewhere. Food for thought.

Background: Wikipedia defines “acceptance and commitment therapy” (ACT) as a form of psychotherapy designed to help the patient accept and embrace their “private events”, especially previously unwanted ones(!). So, yeah, it’s a real thing, and what’s shown in this caption could conceivably be a real outcome (albeit extreme) of such therapy. Amazing what you can learn from a mere TG caption, isn’t it?

  3. I have only recently found your site. I have been reading some of the older material as well as some of the new material. You are a gifted writer with a good mind and great imagination.
    I have enjoyed watching the evolution of your writing, your reasoning and your themes.

    • Thank you! What a wonderful comment; high praise indeed. I know the quality of my writing has come a long way over the past seven years, as I find myself understanding more about the process of writing, and the structure of prose, than I ever did before. It gives truth to the old adage: practice, practice, practice (not terribly sophisticated, as adages go, but it does have truth on its side).

  4. Please keep up this thread. The pictures and captions are terrific. Interupting the conversation in mid sentence just adds more realism to the story.

    • Thank you. I’m glad the breaks work for you. It can be tricky to find just the right place to stop, and to get the right wording so that you can almost “hear” what the wife is (or must be) saying. But when it works, it flows really nicely.

A reply would be appreciated, but is not required...
