After 48 years of dreaming, Largo Florida, City Manager Steve Stanton has announced that he’s started taking hormones to prepare for his trannie transformation into Susan Stanton. The St. Petersburg Times reports:
Married with a 13-year-old son, Stanton said he has thought of becoming a woman since childhood. He said he has gone out in public as a woman in recent years, but only in places like Orlando, Atlanta and Chicago.
Stanton said he is “terrified” about the effect of the news on his family, but he wouldn’t comment on the future of his marriage. His wife, Donna, could not be reached for comment.
“I love my wife,” he said. “She’s been superb. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
Let’s hope she love you, too.
Hearing the news, many of Stanton’s political peers expressed disbelief and shock, but were supportive of his life changing sex change. Of course, not everyone’s spreading good cheer. Baptist pastor Ron Sanders had this to say:
He’s not going to be a man, and he’s not going to be a female. He’s going to be an ‘it.’ It’s going to be the most sorrowful decision he has ever made.
Apparently Sanders’s a psychic as well as a bigot.
