A Woman's Prerogative
Oh yes, the Editorial Staff went there:
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.”
ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn.
But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don.
Naturlich, one of the very first things he did upon realizing that he was, after all, a man trapped in a man's body was blame his wife... and those lousy doctors who "misdiagnosed" him:
“I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing me up in a wig and bra and making fake ID’s with the name ‘Dawn’ on it. Seriously,” Ennis wrote in a memo he posted to the newsroom bulletin board Friday, explaining his shock after he woke up from what he called a “transient global amnesia” last month.
...“I have retained the much different mind-set I had in 1999: I am now totally, completely, unabashedly male in my mind, despite my physical attributes,” he said.
“I’m asking all of you who accepted me as a transgender to now understand: I was misdiagnosed.
“I am already using the men’s room and dressing accordingly,” he noted.
Well *that's* a relief!
No matter what your genda agenda, this story is the comedy gift that just keeps on giving.

I know that feeling, bro. This hair didn't happen all by itself.

That transient global amnesia thing is a booger. It happens to me all the time. It can be so embarrassing going around explaining to everyone afterward.
Reminds me of the Raymond Chandler quotation on Maggie's Farm the other day: "I'm an occasional drinker. The kind who takes a drink and wakes up in Singapore with a full beard."

After a while, people get used to that, Tex. It's when it only happens once in your life that it really seems odd. :)

Transient Global Amnesia... it could be very useful. I'm going to have to file that one away somewhere where I can find it easily :p

Well, I can vouch that recently it does seems like everyone has forgotten damn near everything.
