Guest blogger Dani Klein Modisett: I hate to break up the publicity party but, and I know I'm not the first person to make this claim: Thomas Beatie is simply not a man.
Just in case you don't believe me, I looked up the word "male" in the dictionary. 1. Relating or belonging to the sex that produces sperm to fertilize eggs. Sorry Mr. Groundbreaker.
At this point, Thomasina is essentially a hairy woman with a buzz cut and a goatee.
Frankly, if I didn't do a lot of tweezing and waxing, I'm not sure I'd look all that different.
My original take on this freak -- not of nature mind you -- but of narcissism, stands.
If we were playing poker with our opinions, I would say that Beatie "saw" my assessment of her, and by announcing her second pregnancy on television in an exclusive interview with Babs Walters, raised it with a fetus.
If this couple is really "just a family" as they continue to assert, why do they insist on putting a floodlight on procreating? Can you please go have your children and keep the pictures of your disturbing, hormone-manipulated body off my supermarket shelves and my television?
For the record, I am not in any way against gay marriage or gay families. A loving, nurturing, set of parents is all good with me, regardless of gender.
What's off about this marriage is not that it's missing a male member, so to speak, it's that they have once again proven to be relentless in their need for attention, particularly the "I never met a camera I wouldn't expose myself for" Beatie.
I wish their offspring so much luck. If I were more religious, I would pray for them.
