Via [livejournal.com profile] malloc1024: Florida city manager fired after disclosing his intent to have a sex-change operation.

"The issue is not the gender change here. It's the fact that he deceived people. He wasn't honest with us."

...and yet, something tells me that if he HAD outed himself - as he was apparently planning to do - he would've been criticised just as badly, by many of the same people, for "promoting the gay agenda".

[According to the article timeline, he started talking to a therapist about this stuff some time in 2003; from what little I know of the process, I'd guess that he didn't actually come to a firm decision until quite recently, and I'm not sure what he was supposed to tell people before that. "Hey guys I'm having doubts but I haven't made up my mind yet", maybe?]

Maybe, to avoid confusion, the Largo councillors could put out a list of what stuff people in such positions are expected to disclose, and when. (What if the next guy is thinking of having a vasectomy? Some religions oppose that sort of thing - the public has a Right To Know!)

It's that time again... the time when I upload a bunch of photos and clear out the camera. Some cute dog pictures and a lot of modelling ones (not the sort where I take my clothes off, the sort where I build things out of foamcore).

Cut for lots of photos. )
