Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Annika Penelope, trangender activist and blogger, joins us today to discuss a piece she'd written for Huffington Posts Gay Voices about her experiences transitioning, the things she wasn't prepared for, and offers advice for those thinking about or are in the beginning stages of their transition.

Guest / 3:30pm EST -  We've talked a lot on the show about the issue of bullying, and the effects it has had on communities, parents and teens.  Emily Bazelon of Slate, who we've spoke to a number of times about this issues and many others, has written a new book, Sticks and Stones: Defeating The Culture Of Bullying and Rediscovering The Power of Character Empathy, which addresses the bullying culture and what more needs to be done to prevent it online and in the school hallways.
