While driving to work this morning, I felt like hearing some news. Despite lots going on locally, nationally, and internationally, the “news” station was hung up on Michael Phelps’ girlfriend. She recently announced she was intersex, unbeknownst to most people in her life, including Michael Phelps.
The host went on and on about how Michael Phelps should have known that his girlfriend “was a man.” Maybe it’s me, but it doesn’t seem that obvious. I’m not a fan of Michael Phelps, but aren’t there better, more important things to discuss? It’s sad when reporters feel that salacious stories should be the headline of the day.
