Elderism #27

November 19th, 2008

Watching Larry King–who turned 75 today–try to wrap his mind around the pregnancy of Thomas Beatie last night was like watching a country store clerk who’s lost his spectacles in the barley.

“Do you feel gay?,”

King asked the transsexual and his wife, Nancy, before going on to the nitty gritty:

King: Where did you learn how to do this? From the Internet you said, right. You can’t have the normal kind of intercourse, right?

Thomas: We can.

King: Oh.

Nancy: Not to make a baby.

Thomas: Because of hormones, my–my clitoris has enlarged and it looks like a penis.  I can have intercourse with my wife.

King: That’s fascinating to me.
