SOUNDTRACK BY ALICE B. CLAGETT

 

SUMMARY OF THE SOUNDTRACK

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I have been trying, for a long time, to get to the bottom of this issue of violence against transgender people and crossdressing people. I came across something today, just very briefly, about that. I think that the issue that involves danger and violence against transgender and crossdressing men has to do with sexual preference.

There is a big movement, in the world today, to allow people to have their own choice in sex partners. Kind of a feeling of: I love this person … or … I love that person … or … I prefer this or that type of person. And I think that is a very healthy and good movement: That people should be able to choose what they want in a sex partner.

However … and this is just a guess … It could be that this issue of violence against transgender and crossdressing men has to do with sex work. It could be that men who pay sex workers that they think are women because of transgender changes or crossdressing changes, and then find, at the last moment, that they are relating to someone who is not their own sexual preference, become very angry … especially if they are drunk. And then violence occurs.

So in the one case, if this is true, in the one case there is the issue … which I support … of choosing your own sexual preference, whether it be …

  • the traditional male-female relationship,
  • or what they call male-to-male or M2M,
  • or F2F … female-to-female,
  • or a love triangle involving three people,
  • or polygamy, having more than one husband or wife,
  • or polyamory, romantically loving more than one person at a time,

Whatever your preference is, then if you feel  joy in your heart, through it, then that is fine.

But if one person tries to trick another person into not fulfilling their preference with regard to sexual relationships, then that is not good.

  • One case is: Seeking out and finding your joy in sexuality and sexual fulfillment.
  • And the other is: Tricking a person into not getting that joy.

That is my thought on that for today.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

William Blake on Following the Heart with Regard to Romantic Love . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

I have some historical information on William Blake, as well as a painting and a poem of his that are relevant. There is also a brief discussion of his stance at the end of the blog:

THE 19TH CENTURY ‘FREE LOVE’ MOVEMENT

“[William] Blake was critical of the marriage laws of his day, and generally railed against traditional Christian notions of chastity as a virtue.[73] At a time of tremendous strain in his marriage, in part due to Catherine’s apparent inability to bear children, he directly advocated bringing a second wife into the house.[74] His poetry suggests that external demands for marital fidelity reduce love to mere duty rather than authentic affection, and decries jealousy and egotism as a motive for marriage laws. Poems such as “Why should I be bound to thee, O my lovely Myrtle-tree?” and ‘Earth’s Answer’ seem to advocate multiple sexual partners. In his poem ‘London‘ he speaks of ‘the Marriage-Hearse’ plagued by ‘the youthful Harlot’s curse’, the result alternately of false Prudence and/or Harlotry. Visions of the Daughters of Albion is widely (though not universally) read as a tribute to free love since the relationship between Bromion and Oothoon is held together only by laws and not by love. For Blake, law and love are opposed, and he castigates the ‘frozen marriage-bed’.”

“EARTH’S ANSWER”: A POEM BY WILLIAM BLAKE

“Earth raised up her head
From the darkness dread and drear,
Her light fled,
Stony, dread,
And her locks covered with grey despair.

“Prisoned on watery shore,
Starry jealousy does keep my den
Cold and hoar;
Weeping o’er,
I hear the father of the ancient men.

“Selfish father of men!
Cruel, jealous, selfish fear!
Can delight,
Chained in night,
The virgins of youth and morning bear.

“Does spring hide its joy,
When buds and blossoms grow?
Does the sower
Sow by night,
Or the ploughman in darkness plough?

“Break this heavy chain,
That does freeze my bones around!
Selfish, vain,
Eternal bane,
That free love with bondage bound.”

PRACTICAL POLYAMORY VERSUS FREE LOVE: COMMENTS BY ALICE B. CLAGETT

I note that the Free Love movement has brought with it many social ills as well as community health issues; thus there is no easy answer for the question of feeling the heart and following the heart with regard to romantic love.

I note also that Blake’s stepping into the notion of polyamory may have had to do with the issue of child bearing, which was much more important, from a social perspective, in his day than it is now.  Thus his stance might be termed ‘pragmatic polyamory’ rather than free love as it is perceived in today’s context.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
