About 2 weeks ago while listening to an afternoon radio talk show, my attention was caught by one of those cliff-hanger tease lines they throw you, so you'll be sure to stick around for the news:
An Oregon man claims he is 6 months pregnant!
Well, I admit they had my attention. With the scientific advances we've (or they've) made in the last 10 years....could it truly be that they had found a way?
Imagine my disappointment, after sticking around to hear it, that the he was really a she, that had decided to become a he.
And I am NOT making fun of people who decide to change genders...I have much more important things to do than to even approach that subject.
What irritates me is that they are treating this as if it was some scientific breakthrough...when any woman in the world could do the same thing.
Yes, even I could decide to become a man (admittedly hubby would be quite disappointed), have an operation (although not a thorough one; obviously, if there is somewhere for a baby to grow), and then declare to the world " I, a man, am going to have a baby!"
What is astounding about that??? Besides the fact that I would do that...although of course I wouldn't.
And truly it would have totally been lost to the graveyard of my memory except that they keep repeating it over and over and over...in between the reports of Hillary coming to town.
And then they say that Oprah had him on her show today???
Is there nothing newsworthy going on in this world? Or am I truly missing something?
