Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

To “Trans” and How— at the University of Wisconsin

Posted by Dale Kuehne on November 5, 2015

The University of Wisconsin offers a wide variety of resources for students who are considering whether to pursue a gender transition and a welcoming set of rules for those who have. All of this is coming soon to K-12 near you soon, if it hasn’t already. With the possible exception of Houston.

Who am I?

Can I condemn this man to slavery
Pretend I do not feel his agony
This innocent who bears my face
Who goes to judgement in my place

Who am I?

Can I conceal myself for evermore?
Pretend I’m not the man I was before?
And must my name until I die
Be no more than an alibi?
Must I lie?

How can I ever face my fellow men?
How can I ever face myself again?
My soul belongs to God, I know
I made that bargain long ago
He gave me hope when hope was gone
He gave me strength to journey on

Who am I?

Who am I from Les Miserables by Claude-Michel Schöneberg and Alain Boublil (1980)

    How wonderful to learn about the University of Wisconsin and its awareness about what it is to transition…even in this post-Caitlyn age. Those of us who have transitioned from our assigned gender to our affirmed gender have no wish at all to go back. Sounds rather absolutist, doesn’t it? Whatever your gender situation is, like anything else, let others be there for you, not against you, in this life-altering action.
