  • ... that cowboy Little Joe Monahan's gender became a national news story in 1904? Source: Peter Boag, "Go West Young Man, Go East Young Woman: Searching for the Trans in Western Gender History", page 488: ...at the time of his death around New Year's of 1904, locals discovered his female sex... the story generated much interest and took on a life of its own as it spread across the country."
    • ALT1:... that after his death in 1904, locals discovered that cowboy Little Joe Monahan was born a woman? Source: Same as the hook.

  • Symbol question.svg New article, length ok, interesting, sources are in order, no copyvio. Image is also ok (public domain, appears in article, has rollover text, and is relevant). Of the hooks, I prefer ALT0. I think, however, that you accidentally put the wrong QPQ review into this DYK because you do not seem to be involved in the Bosnia and Herzegovina-Holy See relations review. Furthermore, I have a question: Do we know whether Joe Monahan self-identified as male or female, and if not so, is Joe referred to in the article as "he" because the literature and/or the people around him (her) considered Joe male?

  • Sorry, my review is actually at Hassan Rouhani's plagiarism allegations - I pasted that DYK's QPQ check into my own review. As for the "he," it's unknown how Joe Monahan identified, but since the literature generally uses the pronoun "he," and because it seemed to be his choice, I tried to stay in line with both.

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Thanks for the quick answer! It is good to go then. Applodion (talk) 06:42, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
