I thought the world was coming to an end. I thought we were at the forefront of an epic change, a new Renaissance that would see the world turned upside-down. Then I found out it had had a sex change.
I’m referring, of course, to this incident. This “man” claimed to be the first “man” in the world to become pregnant. When I first heard about it, I thought of something along the lines of Children of Men, that movie I’ve never seen. I thought about surgeons painstakingly repositioning his organs to make room for a uterus and fallopian tubes and ovaries and all the other crap. I thought of hormone therapy and…actually, I thought, “yeah right.”
So this is really just some chick parading around with her newfound manliness, claiming to be a dude and sitting in the limelight because she’s really just going to be the ugliest woman to have a baby. She won’t be able to nurse it, she won’t be able to let its smooth skin caress her beardless face, and she won’t be able to sing it sweetly to sleep (unless she stopped short of messing around with her vocal cords, which I doubt). This is a sham. And here I am feeding that woman’s publicity machine…Post aborted.
