Pregnant Man...

...so I get home late from work last night, do a little fix up on one of my dirt bikes, then go in the house fire up the TV and the lap top. The DVR receiver was on the same channel that I had watched the morning news...

Damned if Oprah was on. Before I can change the channel she introduces her guest.......a PREGNANT MAN

I watched for a couple of minutes. That's all I could take.

Re: Pregnant Man...

Pregnant "Used to be a Woman" you mean. A trans-gender "male" that kept the female plumbing "just in case".

The way they are publicizing this as a "pregnant man" is just more evidence of the media once again not letting the facts get in the way of a good story...

You're almost correct Ken. Yes, it's not a man. But no, it's not a good story. It's a carnival sideshow, at best. People should be lining up and paying their $.25 just to see this freak.


Why is it getting so hot, and why are we in this basket?!

Although the article states otherwise - is it possible he actually did this to himself??!!

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Pregnant Man...

The fact that y'all talkin about it keeps "it", whatever it is you're talking about straight up front and center. The media thrives on that fact. Keep it up, promote it, that just keeps it front and center.
