I wrote a column I'm very proud of that I wanted to share with you all. It's called "A woman behind the words," and it's about Los Angeles Times sportswriter Mike Penner's revelation last week that he is transgender. I actually heard from Christine Daniels (Penner's new monicker), and she said, "It did my heard good." I actually heard from other transgender people and other sportswriters that they loved the column. It felt good writing it.
For years now I have been a vocal advocate of trans equality. I think I've somehow "suffered" as a gay man? I don't know suffering, compared to what trans people have to go through in this culture. And a sportswriter? Forget about it. He's got balls. So to speak.
