Christine Daniels Gives Interview /Was Mike Penner

Pre-op transsexual Mike Penner’s column in the LA Times got some 500,000 hits and over a thousand comments. James Rainey follows up with an interview–the first for Christine Daniels.

The LAT also plans to give Daniels space to write about her transformation under the tentative heading Woman in Progress. Every other woman on the staff just felt her heart sink.

(Does Daniels inherit Penner’s seniority, or is she a new hire? Just asking.)

Christina Kahrl, at Baseball Prospectus, writes about her own transition.

OutSports writes about Penner’s journey.

Gawker posits that Joel Stein is next, but that’s just silly. Al Martinez is next.
