Is it just me? (Warning... Rant on the Media...)

So yesterday I was flipping through the channels, and saw that Oprah was on. I don't usually watch it, but I like to if something good is going to be on. Yesterday she had the "pregnant man" on her show. I didn't really care about it, but kinda wanted to know exactly what was going on with that whole story, because I had heard different things and wanted to know the truth.

So yeah... turns out that she used to be a woman. She underwent hormone therapy and had her breasts removed ans is now a "man." But her reproductive organs and stuff are all still there. a little affected by the testosterone, but still there. So "he" really isn't a "pregnant man," so to speak, he is a man who used to be a woman who still has all the necessary baby carrying equipment.

The Media has hyped this whole thing up so much saying that there is a "pregnant man" and acting like it is some miracle of science, when really, It Isn't!
This makes me so mad! They are leading everyone to believe something that isn't true. yeah, she may look like a man, but sexually, she is still a woman.

I don't know.... what do you guys think? I want to know other people's opinions. Does this irk anyone else like it does me? Just curious!

I completely agree with your rant. I'm so annoyed by the whole thing that I've decided not to spend any time or energy on any of it! I looked it up a few weeks ago to find out the truth and was disgusted. I'm all for people being their "true" know a man trapped in a woman's body and vice versa...but if you are going to be a man, be a man and don't get yourself knocked up and then claim to be a scientific miracle!

I've seen pregnant ladies that look like men before, an odd phenomenon that happens quite often to scary looking pregnant women!
