"All My Children" Featuring a Character Transitioning From Male To Female

"All My Children's" newest resident wil be a "flamboyant" rock star who wants to be a girl. I'm shocked...shocked that no soap has done this before, when soaps LOVE "cutting-edge" issues of sexuality. Surely they've at least featured a character who turned out to have originally been another gender? "Tales Of The City" did that decades ago. Buried at the bottom of the article is a reference to the dreadful state of daytime soaps: "AMC" has dropped from 8.2 million viewers in the early 90s to 3.1 million last year. How much longer will all three networks keep churning them out?
