I’ve got nothing to add to this.

Seriously, how can anyone be this confused?
Maria Medina reports for CBS13 Sacramento, Sept. 27, 2013, that more than 20 years into his marriage, a California man, David Kaufman, “realized” not only that he’s gay but that he’s a transgender!
And so David Kaufman became Dani (Danielle) Kaufman.
David/Dani says he’s always struggled with being born a boy: “When I was 5 years old I just wanted to be a girl so badly.” Beginning when he was 13 years old, he made attempts to end his life. But he “ignored that haunting, nagging feeling” and did “what everyone expected” — by marrying. Not once, but twice.
David’s first marriage produced two kids. After his divorce, he met Cat (Cathleen), fell in love, married and had a child with her. Cat said, “We were each other’s best friend. We just got along really well. It never occurred to me that it would be anything but forever.” The couple moved from Michigan to California, where David works as a radiologist.
But then, after more than two decades living a happy life together, “things changed.”
Four years ago, David/Dani says he finally fully realized his attraction to men.
Cat says she didn’t see any signs at all that David could be gay. But then Cat had a secret of her own, which also began a few years ago. She realized she’s a lesbian!
Cat told David: “I need to tell you something. I’ve been thinking that I would like to date women.”
David responded, “Oh my god, get out of town! I just figured out I’m gay!”
Cat said, “It was pretty shocking for both of us” but “It was excitement and relief.”
Three more years passed . . . .
In 2012, David the homosexual suddenly realized he wasn’t actually gay. He was just born in the wrong body! – “No, I don’t just want to be female. I really am female.”
So David began his transsexual “transformation” into Dani.
David/Dani says “she’s” finally able to be “herself” after more than 50 years of pretending to be someone “she” wasn’t: “It felt so good to be me. It felt so good to be a woman, to be Danielle. This is incredibly cool.”
The couple now lives separately just a few minutes from each other.
Now I’m confused.
If David now thinks he’s not gay after all but merely a man “trapped” in a woman’s body and has made the “transformation” into a woman, does that mean David/Dani likes women or men? If David/Dani still likes women, does that make him/her a lesbian?
And if Cat Kaufman now thinks she’s really a lesbian, does that mean Cat and “Dani” are now a lesbian couple?
Can anyone help clarify? LOL
Interestingly, vitals.com still has Dani Kaufman as a male:
Dr. David Lee Kaufman MD is a male Radiologist, has 18 years of experience and practices in Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology.
Do you remember a post I did last May about an ABC newsman, erh, newswoman, erh, newsthingie, Don Ennis, who marched into the ABC news office one day in full drag, wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig, and declared that henceforth, his colleagues must look upon and treat him as a woman named Dawn?
Well, Don-Dawn-Don has changed his-her-its mind, again!
Tara Palmeri reports for the New York Post, Aug. 6, 2013, that Ennis now says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don.
In an email he wrote to friends and colleagues last Friday, which was first obtained by the website NewsBlues.com, Ennis wrote:
“I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing me up in a wig and bra and making fake ID’s with the name ‘Dawn’ on it. Seriously. It became obvious this was not the case once I took off the bra — and discovered two reasons I was wearing one [referring to his hormone-induced breasts]. I thought it was 1999 . . . and I was sure as hell that I was a man. Fortunately, my memories of the last 14 years have since returned. But what did not return was my identity as Dawn.
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. I have retained the much different mind-set I had in 1999: I am now totally, completely, unabashedly male in my mind, despite my physical attributes. I’m asking all of you who accepted me as a transgender to now understand: I was misdiagnosed. I am already using the men’s room and dressing accordingly.
It’s so odd to be experiencing this from the other side; as recently as last Friday, I felt I was indeed a woman, in my mind, body and soul. Even though I will not wear the wig or the makeup or the skirts again, I promise to remain a strong straight ally, a supporter of diversity and an advocate for equal rights and other LGBT issues including same-sex marriage. I know my wonderful colleagues will no doubt make it easier for the next person to transition at ABC.”
Ennis had previously told friends that he suspected his sex mix-up happened because his mother had given him female hormones as a child that made him look and sound young to prolong a bit-part acting career, but he ended up developing breasts and started thinking he was a woman.
The startling he-to-she-back-to-he move came after Ennis had publicly announced on Facebook in May that he was leaving his wife of 17 years, Wendy, to become a full-time woman.
But Ennis has now assured friends and colleagues that his switch back to being a man isn’t a joke. He wrote: “The new change I’m revealing to you today did not arise because I couldn’t hack it, or people wouldn’t accept the new/real/female ‘me,’ or I had trouble finding shoes that fit (Oh, I found plenty, more than I could afford). […] No, I’m not f–king with you. No this is not a joke. No, this is not an episode of ‘Would You Fall For That?’ ”
And that, boys and girls, is why Canadian psychiatrist Joseph Berger says “scientifically there is no such thing as transgender.”
Sinéad O’Connor, 44, was backing singer for Natty Wailer at the recent Bray Seaside festival in Ireland.

On 24 August 1990, O’Connor was scheduled to perform in Holmdel, New Jersey. Shortly before the show was to begin, she refused to go on if the American national anthem was played, saying she “will not go on stage after the national anthem of a country which imposes censorship on artists. It’s hypocritical and racist.” Venue officials acquiesced to her demand and omitted the anthem, and so O’Connor performed, but they later permanently banned her.
Married three times, O’Connor outed herself as a lesbian in a 2000 interview in Curve, “although…I’ve gone out with blokes…I actually am a dyke.”Soon after, she declared in another interview in The Independent that “it was overcompensating of me to declare myself a lesbian…I am not in a box of any description.” Then in 2003 she stated that while most of her sexual relationships had been with men, she has had three relationships with women. Finally, in a May 2005 issue of Entertainment Weekly, she stated, “I’m three-quarters heterosexual, a quarter gay.”
On an 4 October 2007 broadcast of The Oprah Winfrey Show, O’Connor disclosed that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder four years earlier, and had attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday on 8 December 1999.
