THE WEEK IN GENDER CONFUSION
The CW Television Network is embarking upon what is already being hyped as a “controversial” drama “centering on a transgender teenager.” Called ZE, the program is
…described as a raw, quirky family drama about a FTM (female-to-male) teen and his family. A personal choice takes on controversial public significance when a Texas teenager announces she is transgender and will be living life as a boy. As his dysfunctional family spirals into identity crises of their own, he discovers that he might be the most well-adjusted of them all.
In Germany, news recently broke that back in March, a man gave birth to a baby via, uh, his vagina. It recalls the case of Oregon’s Thomas Beatie, another, well, man blessed with the magical ability to birth babies through his vagina.
THIS WEINER IS COOKED
Serial sexter and liar Anthony Weiner flipped the bird at a reporter from inside his limo after a dismal performance in a New York Democratic mayoral primary where he only snagged five percent of the vote. The phallically surnamed and giant-beaked New York politician had spent most of the day allegedly dodging Sydney Leathers, the porky and not-very-pretty sexting partner who has now made a career out of destroying Weiner’s career. Leathers reportedly stood outside Weiner’s campaign office during the day waving an anti-Weiner sign and later showed up outside the bar that was hosting Weiner’s “victory party” apparently seeking to confront him on camera.
CHICKS BEHAVING BADLY
A survey by insurance.com concluded that female drivers were more likely than males to swear in front of children and flip people off while driving. They are also more likely than men to not only tailgate cars that they feel are moving too slowly, but to brake-check cars that are tailgating them for driving too slowly. Chicks!
In England, a recently deceased woman’s son and daughter co-wrote a nasty obituary of their dead mum accusing her of all manner of psychological and physical cruelty. The obit read in part:
On behalf of her children whom she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her passing from this earth and hope she lives in the after-life reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty, and shame that she delivered on her children.
Patrick Reddick, who co-wrote the obituary with his sister Katherine, told a reporter that when he received news of his mother’s death, he sang, “Ding, dong, the witch is dead!”
In Chicago, police say 31-year-old Robin Erwin allegedly stabbed her 17-year-old son Diontae to death during an argument over ice cream.
THE PARANOID MAJORITY
A Gallup poll found that only 49 percent of Americans“a new low”now trust the government.
