Ellen Page at a recent conference for LGBT children in Las Vegas admitted she is gay. You can view her touching speech below.
Ellen Page Comes Out
Every so often I am blown away by a movie, and when Netflix sent me Inception, I awarded it a rare 5 stars. When a movie entertains me this well I check on other movies starring the main characters. I was already familiar with Leonardo DiCaprio and added a few more of his movies to my queue. I was also familiar with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (10 Things I Hate About You), Tom Hardy (Star Trek: Nemesis), Tom Berenger (Born on the Fourth of July and Sniper 2), Marion Cotillard (Public Enemies), and Michael Caine (On Deadly Ground) to a lesser extent.
The real surprise was Ellen Page. I never heard of her before and soon discovered I had her on my shelf already (X-Men 3: The Last Stand) and never noticed. Her performance was flawless in Inception and I hoped her taste in other acting roles would also appeal to me. I will not go into each of her movies as this article is not about Ellen Page the Performer, but rather, Ellen Page the Person.
When I googled for Ellen Page movies, Google's drop down list of suggested searches showed "Ellen Page gay" near the top. I passed on the obvious sensationalism, but later returned for a more through search when I noticed some interesting tidbits about Ms. Page that got me thinking she might not be gay, but rather a hermaphrodite, a person with both male and female sex organs.
Ellen Page Movies
Evidence for Gay
There seems to be a consensus online that Ellen Page is gay. Consensus, however, is not fact. Many facts are damning, of course. There is a widely distributed picture of Page holding a sign saying she wears "boys' underwear." In an interview with Marie Claire, Page and Drew Barrymore flirted. Barrymore is reportedly bisexual. Her actions and dress frequently suggest she is gay. Page has neither denied or confirmed her sexual orientation, a calculated career decision where she appeals to gay, bisexual, and heterosexual people.
A lot of material on Ellen Page's sexual preference exist online. I will not add anymore to the subject as I have nothing concrete to add. My real interest extends beyond Page being gay to a deeper issue: Is she a hermaphrodite?
Evidence Ellen Page is a Hermaphrodite
Something wasn't right. I watched a few of Ellen Page's earlier movies and was struck by certain peculiarities. At first her strange quirkiness made me uneasy until I compared her to my youngest daughter when it all fell into place. Let me explain my personal situation so you better understand my position of authority.
My youngest daughter came into this world as a real shock to mom and dad. As I watched the delivery, the first doctor said, " Congratulations, sir. You have a son." The second doctor said, "Look again doctor. She's a girl." After a few moments I mumbled, "My child is both!" The room remained dead quiet afterwards except for the soft sobs of my wife weeping.
Thus began my education into ambiguous genitalia and hermaphroditism. My daughter was not a true hermaphrodite, but had male and female parts. A DNA test revealed she was conceived male and after a few cell divisions the Y chromosome became isolated. The technical term is "X iso Yp". To make a long story short, my daughter is genetically 80% female, with about 20% of her cells containing the XY chromosome and 80% with the XX chromosome.
A medical imperitive, as the doctors called it, forced us to choose the sex our child would live with the rest of her life. The gonads had to go as they were precancerous. The doctors felt she should be female for a variety of reasons. To my analytical mind, 80% genetically female decided the race. In retrospect, it was a decision made under duress and only time will tell if the correct choice was made. There is a special place in hell for parents like me.
Ellen Page Interview
There is anecdotal evidence Ellen Page was born a hermaphrodite. Hermaphrodites are short and have a boyish look. Ellen Page is 5 feet tall on a good day on her tippy toes; my daughter is estimated to top out at the same height.
The most important piece of evidence in my mind comes from the movie Juno where Page's character is pregnant and discussing the sex of the child. After stating she doesn't know the sex of her child she makes the flippant remark, "...unless it is a neuter baby." The remark has the feel of being added after the fact as an attempt at humor. The writer or director may have come up with the idea, but it feels like the words came from Page herself. Ellen Page may have watched The Learning Channel or Discover Channel and known about transgender children. But Ellen Page does not strike me as the kind of girl that watches The Learning or Discover Channel. That means she had to pull from personal experience.
Page's body language when she said those words in Juno lead me to believe there is a possibility she is more than gay, she is a hermaphrodite. Her body language and dress in public also tends to indicate she is gay or a hermaphrodite.
Stand Up Submission for Conan
Ellen Page has not revealed if she is gay, though she almost certainly is. If she is gay, is it because she is a hermaphrodite? My evidence exposes the possibility. It would explain why Page is reluctant to come out. People can be very cruel to gay people and even crueler to people that blur the lines of sex and sexuality. The questions are endless. Is a hermaphrodite gay no matter who they are with? Will only gay and bisexual people find an hermaphrodite an appealing life partner?
There is no doubt Ellen Page is an accomplished actress. Check out the videos in this article and see just how funny she is. Page has taken controversial roles in the past. I would like to see her tackle the difficult role of a hermaphrodite child growing up, falling in love, having children, and the difficulties and prejudices involved. It takes a special man to love such a woman. I think they do exist. I hope they do for my daughter's sake.
Around 1 in 2000 children are born with ambiguous genitalia. It remains a secret because of the shame many involved feel. Hermaphrodites feel and love and care like everyone else. They dream, as you and I do. Most hermaphrodites are sterile. But with modern science, hermaphrodites can have children. If you know someone like my daughter, always be nice. They are the kindest, sweetest people in the world.
Ellen Page's Hometown
Who cares. on August 01, 2020:
Who cares any which way sounds and comes off very immature to project your life experiences down to a comment she said in a movie that is much more likely than not written by...you know the writers Jesus man so she’s short and doesn’t conform to you or apparently society’s expectations of femininity this is one of this doesn’t even matter it’s not our business and who cares what a person is anyway she’s funny and acts
J on July 31, 2020:
Keith, while the story is controversial and your personal life situation is private, ultimately none of this is anyones business. I find Ellen Page a wonderful actress and none of her sexual or gender dominance preferences matter. And the word is gender, not race. I find it interesting that people never proof read their own work before they throw it into the publics eye for scrutiny. Thorough, not through. I do not claim to be perfect. But what raises me above those that get credit for poorly written material is, I proof read my comments before I hit submit. ;). After all, to lead by proper example is to inspire others to better themselves.
dakota sorrells on October 11, 2018:
all we can do is to pray for her
Larry Copano from USA on October 29, 2015:
You can be BOTH gay and intersexed. GENDER and SEX are two different things!!!!! Sex terms are Female, Male, and Intersex. Gender terms are Woman, Man, and Non-binary. So Ellen could be intersex and still be a woman. If a woman loves another woman, that's called lesbian.
bart on February 23, 2015:
she's a straight boy.

Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on December 22, 2014:
Thanks for the great comment, Chuck.
Chuck Bluestein from Morristown, AZ, USA on December 21, 2014:
Very good article. Your daughter is an intersexual. There are males, females and over 50,000 intersexuals in the U.S. Maybe Christians do not want this to be known since the bible says that there are males and females. Wikipedia says:
"Intersex, in humans and other animals, is a variation in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, or genitals that do not allow an individual to be distinctly identified as male or female. Such variation may involve genital ambiguity, and combinations of chromosomal genotype and sexual phenotype other than XY-male and XX-female."
Who cares on October 24, 2013:
All talk, less credible evidence. Why does this subject even matter?
Bill Russo from Cape Cod on June 19, 2013:
Well Keith you sure did hit a hot button on this. I respect your courage for writing about such a personal matter. I am not familiar with the actress and it does not matter to me what she is, as long as she is a good person. Congratulations to you for the difficult choices you had to make and for the good results, as evidenced by the fine young woman your daughter grew to be.
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on April 02, 2013:
Actually, Incredulous, my daughter is older now, an adult. She thanks my wife and me almost daily for treating her in the open way we did. She sees so many people with her condition that hide the truth and are so messed up in their life. While "normal" kids are growing up to live bad relationships my daughter enjoys a nurturing marriage. She and her husband are adopting a child with the same genetic defect my daughter has. It seems the parenst couldn't live with the truth their child is wonderful, beautiful, and worthy of undying love. Since the parents will not treat their child in an honest, open manner, my daughter's family will.
If you meet my daughter you will find her one of the most well-adjusted people you will ever meet. Compared to the population at large that is saying a lot.
Incredulous on April 02, 2013:
You put your child's private info out for the world to see before she is old enough to make her own choices. No concern for HER feelings regarding this matter. Then you dragged a random celebrity into the mess which serves no purpose other than potential slander.
Look at it like this, your child is going to have a lot more to deal with growing up than you ever did so try to learn now that you are a parent - It is all about the kid!
You're outing your own child before they get an opportunity to make a choice as to how the situation should be handled and gossiping about a complete stranger for WHAT purpose?
OceanBeachBabe on March 24, 2013:
I find this "article" so offensive on so many levels. First, the only actual fact that you relied on to make such an accusation is that she is short. What does that matter?? I'm 5'1" and can guarantee you that I am not intersexed. A huge percentage of females are around 5 feet tall. You know why I'mv short? It's because my parents were short, its because there is variability in people's appearances-- variability that exists whether people have the same genetalia or not.
Second, use the term intersex, not hermaphrodite. That's an offensive term and I already saw the comment by someone else calling you out on this and your excuse was lame. Just because people more readily understand the word hermaphrodite does not mean that they are incapable of understanding if you used the word intersex and then explained what it meant.
Third, the whole notion that because someone dresses a certain way they must have a certain form of sexuality or they must have been born intersexed is some nonsensical 50s bullshit. I like to wear t-shirts and jeans and converse and I also like to have sex with men. Some days I want to dress up and look feminine and some days I want to throw on a sweatshirt and just live my life. Men have the luxury of rolling out of bed and throwing on something practical and comfortable but if a woman does it then she must be gay or intersex? That's a ridiculous and dated way of thinking.
Finally, who cares what kind of genitals she has or who she wants to sleep with? Why is any of that anyone's business but her own. You try to act like you're saying all of this from some loving point of view because of your daughter but don't you think that your daughter might be upset if she was out making movies and some random stranger thought it was his job to out her? And don't play the "she doesn't keep it secret" card because it sounds like she is very young right now and her sense of self and what she does and doesn't want the whole world to know when she is 17 and dealing with hormones, dating, and shitty mean teenagers, may be different. Besides, if you really feel like ambiguous genetalia is nothing to be ashamed of and that it doesn't affect who an individual is as a person, then why even bring this up as if it's an issue that even needs addressing? I hope that someday we will live in a world where people can just be who they are, be it straight, gay, bi, asexual, intersexed, transexual, androgynous, short, tall, conforming to gender stereotypes or not... whatever, and that people will just accept those things without assuming that they must be a certain way or that they must fall into a certain category because of it.
Sigh on January 11, 2013:
I think that people like you are the reason the Internet is a bad place to go for information. And stop calling this an article; An article includes fact-checked information, interviews with sources and avoids speculation (in particular, an "article" would refuse to label conjecture as evidence) This is a blog at best and a bad one at that.
Ben on August 11, 2012:
I have no issue with speculation, but I do have to say that your logic is incredibly thin. Actors and actresses are paid the big bucks because they *can* make a line sound spontaneous and from-the-heart, and on top of that, attributing an actor's performance to the actor's personal background with such a direct and specific leap of logic is probably not the best way to go about it.
Maybe you could argue that her delivery of the line implies some form of gender identity issue in her past, but even that doesn't have much ground to stand on.
Meryl Streep's performance in "Sophie's Choice" does a very convincing job of portraying a woman choosing to give up the lives of one of her children, a woman inches away from suicide, and plenty of other subtle, shocking emotional problems and unpleasant backstories, none of which Streep herself has ever had to deal with directly.
I think your closeness to the topic of hermaphrodites - having a daughter born one - makes it easier for you to link things around you to that topic. Someone with a history of parental abuse may be quick to link behavioral quirks of others to similar problems. It's a permutation of the false consensus effect - finding a necessary link where most others would merely see a generic quirk with no clear cause.
This kind of theory only becomes valid when you've ruled out the possibility of any other scenario, and the fact is that this case in particular opens itself up to infinite causal relationships - she's acting; anything she does in character may or may not be directly to related to personal experience. She could have messed up her intended delivery and happened to end up with a tone of voice the director liked, for heaven's sake - you never know the story of how each moment in the film made the final cut.
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on August 10, 2012:
Blair, don't consider it offensive. I use the term hermaphrodite because it is a term people better understand. My goal is to increase awareness, even if some of the terminology is off.
Blair on August 09, 2012:
dude.. stop calling your daughter a hermaphrodite. It's called intersex, and I think you know that already. Hermaphrodites do not exist in humans and the word has some weird and misleading connotations. A lot of people find that offensive.
bob on August 05, 2012:
You are have decided to shade the world according to your unique situation. Go get professional help for the guilt you have before it is to late
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on July 22, 2012:
You seem very judgemental, non-judgemental. In response to several of your comments: many women have a form of hermaphorditism and don't know it. Your wife may have Turner's Syndrome, a potential form of hermaphroditism. Many tiny women do. Yes, I met Ellen and she IS gay. If you met her you would know that. As for keeping my duaghter's medical condition a secret, not a chance. We attended classes early on and the families with problems adjusting were the ones that kept it a dirty little family secret. My daughter is more popular at school because she is open about it. One of her teachers has a daughter with the same condition and it helped the teacher cope, too. That makes my daughter special. How about yours? Do you find her special? If not, the problem is with you, not me. And last, do not confuse pride with anger. I am a proud father and wouldn't change my daughter for all the money in the world. I love her the way she is.
non-judgemental on July 22, 2012:
You started your post saying that you would talk about her acting life, not her personal life. You stated that you would not add to rumors. However, that is all you did on both counts. Justifying your daughters misfourtune by implicating someone famous is not fair to your daughter, and slanderous to to the 3rd party. My wife is very close in appearance to Ellen Page's facial features. She is also only 4'10'', 95 lbs. Does that make her a hermaphrodite too? Trust me, she is all woman. You have no clue what you are talking about. Have you ever met Ellen Page? Well I have, a few times here in Toronto (mutual friend in the film indusrty). She is tiny, and yes, she is quirky, but she is also 'normal' (whether that be gay or straight). So, shall we start posting about your daughter now? You seem to think it,s okay to to speculate about such things. Stop taking out your anger at the world against other people you have never met just to make you feel less guilty about your life, before others do the same to her, now that you have told her story' which SHE may want to keep to herself.. oops, 2 late, her father has taken that choice away from her because he feels guilty/sorry for himself and needs to tear someone else down to feel better. Last time in witnessed that was in high school
Vi on June 26, 2012:
You have no real evidence at all....just a well worded article that makes it sound strong
Anon2 on June 26, 2012:
I find your "research" and "conclusions" faulty. You don't want negative stereotypes, but end your blog with a positive one. Ms. Page is exactly the sort of person I assume would watch The Discovery or Learning Channel. Watch her entire body of film work, read her interviews, watch her interviews, and see if you can reach a different conclusion as to what "kind of girl" she may be. I don't have knowledge of her sexual preferences or birth gender and, quite frankly, feel it is of no import. My personal feelings are she's likely to be with a person she's attracted to on many levels without bias as to gender.
J Bittner on May 26, 2012:
As a father I would hunt you down if you ever wrote something so baseless and severe about my child. You based your assumptions on maneurisms of an actor in a film. The screenplay was not ad libbed, the neuter line was written in the script and her behavior was part of a scene. It's amazing but I think directors actually direct actors to behave a certain way to make the film they want to make. Oh you know Kristen Stewart where's a lot of t-shirts and boys shirts, maybe she is a hermaphrodite too... Come on, just shamefull...
john on April 15, 2012:
i think you're projecing insecurities about your daughter onto the outside world. it sucks that she might have a bit of an uphill battle, but for the love of god, don't start looking for hermaphrodites in hollywood. This is where insanity begins.
bizzymom from New York on April 12, 2012:
This is a very interesting article. You did not say anything wrong about the actress. I wish you and your family all the best.
Kitty Fields from Summerland on March 15, 2012:
An interesting theory...though I'm thinking she's just more of an androgynous sort of person...Voted up though!
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on January 03, 2012:
Alastar, don't worry about it. My daughter is a well adjusted young lady. Don't worry about being too kind. I would have come to the same conclusion if I never heard of this before either. Thanks for your concerns and "well wishes."
Alastar Packer from North Carolina on January 03, 2012:
Can only wish I'd commented in a similar fashion as James Watkins did on here. Apologize for my shortcomings: mannish and bizarre were the wrong words to use in this delicate situation. The actual intent was different than what they imply. Best regards Keith.
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on January 02, 2012:
Alastar, my daughter doesn't appear "mannish" either.
George, Page made fun of herself on Saturday Night Live in a "gay" skit.
George on January 02, 2012:
Well, why would she call "neuter babies" creepy if she's hermaphrodite too (and I'm pretty sure she's not)? Why would she make fun of herself?
Alastar Packer from North Carolina on January 01, 2012:
Keith, frankly brother this one one of the most bizarre hubs I've ever seen and not strictly because of your daughters birth condition. I'm not down on you at all, on the contrary this is intriguing. Never heard of the girl or seen her in the movies but she doesn't appear to be mannish from the vid. Keith, why would you say there's a special place in hell for you? From what you've laid out in the article you made the only choice you could have. Best wishes to you and your family Keith Tax.
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on January 01, 2012:
George, scripts can evolve during filming. Thanks for the link. Others may find it interesting.
hecate-horus from Rowland Woods on December 10, 2011:
My heart goes out to your daughter. People can be cruel, and hopefully she won't have to deal with that.
d.william from Somewhere in the south on December 01, 2011:
P.S. I forgot to mention how much i enjoyed the videos as well. She really is a beautiful young lady and quite hilarious.
d.william from Somewhere in the south on December 01, 2011:
I am happy you decided to post this article. Although painful, it is something that needs to come out in the open to destroy the adverse stigma of birth anomalies. The only way to stop the ignorance of thinking that birth anomalies are evil, or somehow magically, or mysteriously, or intentionally "chosen" by those who are born different, is to educate and enlighten those with closed minds that prefer to hate rather than understand and accept all the diversities in life. I commend you for this.
These "evils" are only in the minds of the ignorant. God bless you and your family.
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on December 01, 2011:
d.william, I debated publishing the hub. I decided tough issues still need airing even if uncomfortable. My wife and I had group therapy with other parents and actual intersex individuals. The ones that kept this as a dirty family secret were the least adjusted in the group. Those that spoke openly were there to help others only; they were comfortable with themselves.
StonePost, the correct term is gonads. The gonads frequently don't drop to form testes and also have an elevated cancer risk. My daughter's were removed around six weeks after birth. Her gonads were purpulish blobs.
StonePost on December 01, 2011:
It is possible, I dated a hermaphrodite once....didn't know it for quite a long time too! Neither did he... Until the doctor told him he had ovarian cancer! It was a shock to both of us.
d.william from Somewhere in the south on December 01, 2011:
WOW. I was checking out your hubs and this one jumped out at me. The title was kind of shocking, and i half expected to read an article from a bigot who passes judgement on others due to the idiocy of their religious upbringing. It was quite an eye opener to read about your daughter, and at first i was appalled that you would dare to "assign" her a gender. Most parents who have children born with this anomaly and coerced by the doctor to make a decision based on their personal beliefs, and then discover that when this child grows up to be the opposite of what their "assigned" gender was, or worse, experience a lifetime of confusion and misery from the "mistake" made by their parents and/or doctor.
This is an extremely sensitive subject. More so, than simply being born "gay", as is the majority of homosexual adults.
I am quite impressed that your decision to write this article was to educate the public on these rare anomalies and how very important it is for people to learn to accept them as part of the Creator's plan - that did NOT require mankind's permission for him to do so. This is an exceptional article and even though the question about Ellen Page's sexual identity probably should NOT have been exposed to the cruel scrutiny of a cold and uncaring public, she does have the choice of responding, or not. And who knows this may have even helped her career in the long run.
Anyway, you got some brass ones to put this out there, with all the judgmental bigots running around loose in this world today. Good job. And good luck.
James A Watkins from Chicago on September 09, 2011:
Gosh, I am sorry to hear about the condition with which your daughter was born. That has to be quite a shock and burden on you and your wife.
As far as the actress goes: all I know is she is awfully cute.
TheEllios from The Inland Empire on August 17, 2011:
I hope this isn't serious :/ Ellen Page is probably gay but to flat out allege that she is a hermaphrodite? Come on. This isn't even worth writing an article about. If she's gay than that's fantastic. But you don't know her or her life, just like we all don't know these people.
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on August 16, 2011:
Thnak you for the kind words of support, Sunnyglitter.
Sunnyglitter from Cyberspace on August 16, 2011:
This was a very interesting article. Thanks for sharing your own personal story about your daughter.
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on August 13, 2011:
girlwonder, it is called gender assignment. When a child is born intersex, there are usually problems that require repair of the urinary track, the removal of gonads, and gender assignment. My wife and I weighed the DNA results in our decision. A decision I now regret because genetics do not tell the whole story. The doctors pushed for gender assignment when it was not required at the time. "But since we are repairing the urinary track and removing the gonads, now is a good time to assign gender," the doctors said. It was a stressful time and that leads to less than desirable choices. My daughter looks like a female. It would require a close examination to see any difference at all.
WickedLittleLiar from South Carolina on August 12, 2011:
"But Ellen Page does not strike me as the kind of girl that watches The Learning or Discover Channel. That means she had to pull from personal experience." That was the most presumptious thing I read other than all the other gibberish. Other than the fact that she's a short girl, I didn't see any other evidence. Did you go online and read the script to Juno that Diablo Cody wrote to see if that line was ad libbed or not? Or did you just make another assumption?
Whether she's in the public eye or not, some things are just downright cruel to say (or even ask) about someone and I would think an adult would know better. Just because she doesn't mention something doesn't mean it's true. Everything you said up there was you talking from your own situation and making unfounded assumptions. It's just sad.
girlwonder on August 11, 2011:
In the tracey fragments ellen is raped and it is very clear that she has a normal female body.
keith on August 10, 2011:
This is the supidest thing i have ever read.
Anonymous on August 10, 2011:
I know, but the insinuations are there though, and that is often more than enough for people to make wrong assumptions.
I'm not implying that you should unpublish or whatever, just raising the privacy-question, that's all. And I never said we couldn't be!
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on August 10, 2011:
Anon, I think you are reading things into this hub that are not there. I never said Page IS a hermaphrodite, I only asked the question.
If Ms. Page imforms me she is offended by this article I will unpublish it. Can we be friends now?
Anonymous on August 10, 2011:
And you don't think it's wrong to make decisions for other people? You exposed your daughter, perhaps with her knowledge, but still, isn't it up to the individual to decide if they expose their secrets or not? The fact that she's an actress means she'll have little privacy, however no paparazzo would find out secrets that deep, perhaps who she is dating, what she is wearing, things that are on the borderline of privacy anyway, but this is something completely different, when you google her name this article is on the first page, living with hermaphroditism is hard I'm sure, living with the fact that 90% of the world's population knows you're one is much worse. If she made it public it would be another case, she would expose herself, but in this case she has no choice.
If you got your hands on a picture of her privates, would you expose that as well? To make things worse, let's say the picture was taken with a hidden camera so she was not involved or aware, similar to this article. Perhaps you would, I wouldn't, it's potentially life-ruining. I have secrets I don't think anyone else should know unless I tell them, and I'm sure you do too :)
Also, the fact that you refuse to hide from what you are is nice, but that doesn't mean you should or can force it onto other people, being in the public's eye does not mean they have to know every little detail of your life, being watched 24/7 is more than enough...
Keith Schroeder (author) from Wisconsin on August 10, 2011:
Anon, I do not feel any more for Page than I feel for anyone else. She is in the public's eye and she wants it that way. As for exposing my daughter, I did that in this article and encourage others to speak out on this issue. Remember, 1 in 2000 children born have some form of hermaphroditism. I refuse to hide from what I am and hope my children live by the same philosophy. My daughter's friends already know so there is no surprise if they find the info online. Tolerance comes from knowledge, not secrets.
There is no expectation of privacy in certain professions. Celebrities will face more scrutiny than any other profession except politicians.
And how dare you insult my buddy Mel. His privates are the size of King Kong's.
Anonymous on August 09, 2011:
If you feel for her, and know what it's like, then why do you attempt to invade her privacy by exposing her with this article? I find this very confusing of you. Would you like it if someone wrote an article about your daughter, exposing how she is most likely a hermaphrodite, because the author had closely observed her? How do you think your daughter would feel if she discovered it?
Even worse, what if your daughters friends google her name, say to find her facebook, only to discover the article on the first page and suddenly change the way they think about her, all because someone had to expose her secret in an internet article...
What's next, are we going to investigate how big Mel Gibson's privates are and when we discover that they're tiny are we going to publish that online as well? It's sickening that people need to know everything about other people, mind your own damn business, I'm sure there's enough to fix in your own life.
Respect other peoples privacy, even if they are celebrities, they deserve a little bit of privacy.
