Holy crap. Way to go Mike Penner/Christine Daniels. Who knew I’d ever read something from a sportswriter in the LA Times that was so moving?
Today I leave for a few weeks’ vacation, and when I return, I will come back in yet another incarnation.
I am a transsexual sportswriter. It has taken more than 40 years, a million tears and hundreds of hours of soul-wrenching therapy for me to work up the courage to type those words. I realize many readers and colleagues and friends will be shocked to read them.
Is it inappropriate to say that it takes balls to write something like this? Maybe it is, regardless, it’s a pretty astonishing and impressive admission in a hugely public forum. Here’s wishing luck to Christine when she gets back from vacation and back to sportswriting it up.
