Steve Stanton (above) recently lost his job as city manager in Largo, Florida after he announced his plans to undergo a sex change operation and become a woman.
He later applied for the position of city manager of Sarasota, Florida. Stanton—who had recently started living as a woman—showed up at the interview wearing a skirt, pumps, and makeup. The job was given to another candidate.
Frankly, I don’t see what the big deal is. I don’t think Steve-soon-to-be-Susan Stanton should have been fired. If he performed his job well, his private life should have had no bearing on his professional life.
Hopefully Steve/Susan will be able to find a job soon.
