Crowley And Shemales
Ok no i am not implying that i have proof that Crowley had,liked or was with a she male. But as i was talking to a friend of mine today the subject of what would Crowley think of the transgendered people of today came up. I know that he was bisexual which i have no problem with that or people who live a gay lifestyle some of my best friends are gay.
I told my friend that Crowley would be delighted in the amount of sexual freedom that has come since his time and that with a transgendered person would give him the sexual satisfaction of both worlds so to speak. He commented and told me that Al would probably poke her/him with a stick until he figured out what to do with them. I laughed said "ok now the real answer" there reply was the same followed by them informing me that Al would probably be repulsed by the idea of a penis on a woman and a vagina on a man. I found this answer to be kinda of blind eyed and closed minded as from what I've heard or read about Crowley it seemed to me like he was a sailor on the waters of sexual discovery but i could be wrong.
Never the less i felt it was a good question and am asking the people here the same question what do you think old Crowley would say?
You remember Crowley talked about LAYLAH ( Arabic for "Night" ).. And as I read about Kabbalic systems, as I`ve got it has something to do with in Kabbalistic views you can find your another part of you from the world, and have some kind of Gnosis if meeting one ( not the most likely it will happen today! ). Not like anything that birds would fly above you two and sing, but you would both feel the possibility to help humanity to transform closer and back into Eden.. These are my notions about Kabbalistic system, I see the escape from Eden as a escape from the hands of Demiurge and have therefore a bit Gnostic/Ophitean/Luciferian/What-ever-you-wanna-call it- way to see things in this case. If I got right ( tell me if I didn`t and you know! ), the human spirit is "put" throught Laylah and splitted into man and woman. And what I`ve read too, that women get easier engligtened ( this is where I agree by experience ), and may sometimes come back to World to help his "man-half" to get fullfilled too spiritually.
All this text is cause it gave me a thought instantly, that if LAYLAH would be at least close to what I had thought, I pretty much assume if agreeing with that kind of theory about spirit being cast into man and woman, that the gender wouldn`t play so big role in seeing people for this Genious AC..
And if I wanna put it easy way, if I think how big genious AC was, and think myself as one adoring his works, and even I can come up open to those sexuality things, why wouldn`t Crowley! ( though I`m a hetero 😉 )
People, who have something say, please comment to this topic. Seems interesting 🙂 I could maybe later check something from my books, cause I remember there was something about Crowley and talk about seuxality etc..

"Crowley and Shemales"?
Is this really the best that LAShTAL.COM members can come up with as topics for biographical discussion?
