What Kind of Freaky World Do We Live In?!

First of all, I did my part to help save the Earth today. I finally called 1-888-537-8688 to opt out of all my pre-screened credit card offers which means that I will probably save a tree over the next year. Yeah! We get so many dang offers every week. Crazy!

Now I must admit I almost puked tonight as I caught a glance of my People magazine on the kitchen island. In the top right hand corner there was a photo of a man holding a baby with the caption:


This is the world we live in, folks! Now I knew there was a pregnant man out there because I saw him on Oprah I guess about 4 months ago. But for some reason I suppressed the memory deep in my mind and could only hope that the episode was just a wacky dream of mine. But there it was on my kitchen counter, a story about a poor innocent baby who's transgender? transsexual? androgyne? genderqueer? father gave birth to her. My stomach churned as I read the article. I'll refrain from saying anything unkind so that I don't make more enemies. I'll leave you with this quote from the father with a womb,

"If Susan (the baby) wants to pierce her nose, we're going to have to have a little talk about that. All we can do is equip her with knowledge and love, and hopefully she'll make the right decisions."

Now forgive my hypocrisy, but some people definitely should not have any kids. Like men, for example. I'm going to go puke now.
