ABC newsman who switched genders wants to switch back (Mainstream news Editor)
FoxNews ^ | 8-6-2013

Posted on 08/06/2013 6:28:52 AM PDT by equalator

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.Fortunately, my memories of the last 14 years have since returned. But what did not return was my identity as Dawn,” said Ennis, who had been wearing lipstick, skirts and heels.

“I am writing to let you know I’m changing my name . . . to Don Ennis. That will be my name again, now and forever. And it appears I’m not transgender after all.

We wonder why the state of the "news" is in the shape that it's in. This is a typical Disney/ABC news editor. Gays are about 1% of the population, this guy is in a tiny fraction of even that. But we're getting his/her/its opinions. Wonderful.

So sad, and several doctors got paid a lot of money to reinforce this idea to him.

oh and he’s an ugly chick

He might have a brain tumor somewhere that would explain the temporary amnesia and complete but temporary personality change.

An ABC News editor. Any wonder why the news “reporting” is so totally screwed up and why it is often agenda driven in support of the looney left Marxists?

MRS. GARRISON
Hello doctor, looks like I need an abortion.

DOCTOR
...an abortion?

MRS. GARRISON
Yeah, I’ve got one growing inside me.
Now, are you gonna scramble its brains
or just vacuum it out? ...If you want
you can just scramble it and I’ll queef
it out myself.

DOCTOR
Mmister Garrison-

MRS. GARRISON
Mrs. Garrison.

DOCTOR
Mmrs. Garrison, you can’t have an abortion.

MRS. GARRISON
Don’t you tell me what I can and can’t
do with my body! A woman has a right
to choose!

DOCTOR
No, I mean you’re physically unable
to have an abortion, because you can’t
get pregnant.

MRS. GARRISON
But I missed my period.

DOCTOR
You can’t have periods either. You
had a sex change, Mr. Garrison, but
you don’t have ovaries or a womb. You
don’t produce eggs.

MRS. GARRISON
You mean, I’ll never know what it feels
like to have a baby growing inside me
and then scramble its brains and vacuum
it out?

DOCTOR
N-that’s right.

MRS. GARRISON
But I paid five thousand dollars to
be a woman. This would mean I I’m not
really a woman. Ih, I’m just a... a
I’m just a guy with a mutilated penis!

DOCTOR
Basically, yes.

MRS. GARRISON
...Oh boy, do I feel like a jackass.

"Don Ennis, typical Disney/ABC news editor"

Is he Don or Daisy Duck? Either way, he looks pretty daffy to me.

Look at those eyes. Don't ever give this man a firearm....shiver.

True, he isn’t exactly handsome as a man either, but he had a good job. That counts for more than looks with most women.

As a homely transgender, he had nothing going for him.

What’s problematic about this story (well, one of the many things) is that he says he already has hormone-induced breasts. That means if this delusion hit in May, some doctor did not waste any time pumping him full of drugs to start changing his body. No counseling, no “maybe-this-is-a-midlife-crisis,” no waiting period, just “You want to be a woman? Oh, boy, this will be deliciously expensive,” and here you go. He’s lucky he didn’t already get major surgery down below.

Don was hired by ‘fellow travelers’ at the news station.

These people are all like-minded and hire each other to positions of power, until they saturate it

Then they take over.

This is, I believe, why they are so hell-bent on getting ‘gay’s in the military out in the open.

when the gays promote themselves to the top and take over, we have had it.

There is nothing worse than people with no moral compass in-charge. The Hitler SS was rumored to be infiltrated all the way to the top and controlled by these same types.

That’s what I’m thinking. Book deal? If he does have a brain tumor his only priority should be to get that checked at once. Especially one that caused a major indecent like that. Running such a scam would be easy these days as that’s one of the protected classes. Of course the left will give him some heat for switching back.

----------------

I worked with someone in a professional setting that pulled the exact same move -- dude, chick.... wait a second, I want to be a dude again.

We were all supposed to be casual about it, and we feared that if we said anything negative it would be us that was looked at as the wrong-headed person and it could jeopardize our employment. With that said, some female employees did complain about shim using the ladies' restroom during his chick phase.

My guess is that he:

1. Wanted a promotion
2. Though he was in danger of being laid off

So, he decided to remake his white male self into an PC juggernaut.

He probably did it to check out all the babes he worked with because he could use the women's bathroom. After he saw what was available he decided he was a man again so he could ask them out.
