Where I Just Ramble My Opinion.

I consider myself a pretty informed citizen. I read the newspaper and have many other news sources that I follow on a weekly basis. I have really always been interested in what is going on in the world. But lately I can't help but read the news and shake my head at the same time.

I understand that the news rarely has good news as it is, but lately it's getting weirder and weirder.

For starters there are the Georgia 3rd graders who were upset with their teacher for scolding them so they made a plan to harm their teacher in revenge.

And then there's that 3rd grade teacher in California who decided to bring a gun to school and leave it in her top desk drawer where a student later saw it. (Perhaps she was fearful her students had a plan against her as well???)

Then there's the woman in Michigan who robbed a bank claiming that the economy made her do it. It truly is always someone else's fault, isn't it?

Tonight I saw a story about a Wisconsin elementary school that had a dress up day where students were encouraged to either dress up like a senior citizen or dress up as the opposite gender. Is that not strange?

And did you know that according to CNN, your relationship isn't official until it's on Facebook. Oooh!

Even though these stories are real and bizarre, the one news story that is really bugging me is this pregnant 'man'. For starters, can we please stop calling her the pregnant man? She is a woman who has always wanted to be a man and decided to take testosterone and have her breasts removed. She is not a man. She is a woman with a gender crisis.

In case you happened to miss it like I did, Oprah interviewed this pregnant he/she and spouse and also followed he/she to the doctor for the ultrasound. Oprah, you are better than that! (And don't even get me started on my disappointment over her blatant disbelief in God.)

I don't want to see any more pictures of the pregnant he/she and I don't want to read any more about it. Instead I'd like Dateline or CNN to interview the doctor who decided it would be a good idea to inseminate a woman who was taking testosterone to be a man.

There is right and there is wrong. And this whole thing, it's just plain wrong.

I completely and totally agree!!!!

I think it's utter #*&#^* that this woman with an identity crisis is being paraded in the media as some sort of madonna. If he/she always knew that he/she wanted a baby, then maybe they should have remained a female (no removal of sex organs, no hormones); instead, we are listening to a person talk about having a right to have a child while living as a man. And yes, I have serious doubts about their doc's sanity, as well as his/her partner's sanity.

Ahem. Just my two cents, sorry for the rant....

Ah, ha. I was wondering about how the pregnant man was even pregnant. I'm glad I caught some actual news here! This whole pregnancy makes sense now, still unacceptable that it is a "news story", but that's another topic.

did you see that video on youtube about oprah! I never really watched her, but YIKES!
And thank you again about the pregnant man, seriously. I agree, and I also would like them to interview the dr.! I wonder if the baby will be normal?
