Like similar rumors circulating about actress Jamie Lee Curtis
and hip-hop diva Ciara
, the claim that popular Transformers
star Megan Fox is a "transvestite," "transsexual," or "hermaphrodite" is nothing if not counter-intuitive. The last thing you'd think, looking at her, is that she's a man.
How, then, to explain scuttlebutt to the contrary
circulating since late 2008?
Chalk it up to a perfect storm of media hype, irony, and satire, exacerbated by the actress's own careless remarks and a surfeit of prurient tongue wagging on the Internet.
