This annoys me in ways I don't understand.
That's going to be one confused kid when they show The Movie in 4th grade. If you're pregnant, you're not a man. I don't care what you have removed, what you call yourself, or what sort of prosthesis you're packing in your drawers (you'll have to trust me on that one, I fear Google)--men don't get pregnant. Not even transmen.
Most of my annoyance probably stems from years and years of women insisting I'm not a Real Woman because I'm decent at math, loathe shoe shopping, and never had babies. But I'm not a man and I've never wanted to be one; I just want to be accepted as I am and wear comfortable shoes.
Meanwhile, here's a man who is more of a Real Woman than I am. Mmmmrph. Please God, don't let my mother see this in the news.
