I’ve been reading a few articles recently about Mike Penner, the L.A. Times sportswriter who changed his mind, apparently, about transitioning. Mike hasn’t offered any explanations, nor does he owe any to anyone — though, people are curious, naturally. I’m not going to speculate on what his reasons might be; we really must respect his right to privacy. But Mike isn’t the only person I’ve heard of who has pulled an abrupt U-turn in their transitional journey. According to the articles, about five per cent of transitioning “transsexuals” in the United States change their minds and don’t complete the transition process.

On January 30, 2009 Lynn received a letter from Peter M.

Lynn called Zucker's bluff by exposing the false accusations in an investigative report on the internet. Chagmion Antoine of Logo/CBS News followed up on the story, in an interview Logo television's 365Gay News on February 26, 2009.

Isn’t it sort of akin to having the KKK do research studies on African Americans?
