He should have changed his name from "Don" to "Gone".- Grizzley

ABC newsman who switched genders wants to switch back:
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.

Your Say

The ridicule was too much for him.

He probably caught it from a co-worker - there is an epidemic of selective temporary amnesia in the MSM newsrooms.

As opposed to what's gonna happen now.....

He looks kind of fetching as "Dawn." Maybe he should reconsider his "reconsider." Woman's prerogative, you know.

Insanity really is sufficient cause for dismissal in my mind.

There is nothing I am more sick of than "trans-gendered" people. 99.99% of need a hard slap and some good advice like: "you're a man, deal with it".

The other one per million needs a job in a freak show.

He actually looks better as a woman.

... well except for that whole "penis" thing.

How many sex changes does the ACA cover?

Ayiiii! The mind boggles and sputters out.

I suppose he wants his wife back too. Probably got sick of doing his own laundry.

I suspect "he" got sick of pulling up his skirt and pulling down pantyhose (and reversing) then sitting down just to pee.

Ah, but did his work improve while he was "Dawn"?

Posted by: Pappy at August 6, 2013 6:12 PM

I hope they paid (it) less when it was a woman.

The result of indulging every little thing results in the indulgence of much...bigger...things.

Too bad it is actionable for an employer "you're crazy" these days.

He wants to reverse his decision? Bad news. I don't think they kept the "spare parts" around after the first procedure just in case he changed his mind. He should have changed his name from "Don" to "Gone". And even if they did save them bits on ice somewhere, I rather doubt that they would work the same way after a reversal as they did before.

Some decisions cannot be fully undone.

He apparently didn't have the operation. There was an LA Times sportswriter who also went through that phase for a year or so (now unfortunately dead of suicide).

See, this is what gets me about "trans" grade-school kids. These guys were full-grown men with careers and families. Folks, the vast majority of six-year-old kids don't even know for sure what they want to do for a grown-up job, but somehow they're set in stone on this? Really?

I doubt he was cut, just wore different clothes and a wig.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at August 6, 2013 9:57 PM

I suspect he discovered that getting into the girl's locker room wasn't that big of a deal after all.

Posted by: Larry Sheldon at August 6, 2013 10:06 PM

Now THAT is a creepy ass cracka!

Posted by: edaddy at August 7, 2013 6:23 AM

Next thing we'll read about is how he stepped off the ledge to infinity. Good riddance to vile poison.

Posted by: ghostsniper at August 7, 2013 6:43 AM

Shocking. Who knew there were men at ABC?

Posted by: Gagdad Bob at August 7, 2013 9:16 AM

I think the term "man" here is being used in the loosest, most strictly biological sense.
