LA Times sportswriter Mike Penner is getting a sex change operation. Post-op, the by-line will change to Christine Daniels.

Penner writes that making the decision has cured his writer’s block. Reactions in the online world are mixed.

Penner’s always been a huge soccer fan, and that probably won’t change.

Note to the LAT: this is not the moment for a multi-media presentation.
