The following transcript came to me about an hour ago.
The comments made by Nick Picholas and Janet Snyder of WKSE-FM. Buffalo, NY concerning the pregnancy of Trans man Scott Moore are inappropriate, immature and insensitive.
Western New York has recently experienced a ration of hate crimes committed against Transgender people including rape and murder.
Picholas' and Snyder's comments this morning fuel anti Transgender hate and cast a negative shadow on Transgender people and their families as being something abnormal.
Please contact WKSE-FM's general manager, Greg Reid, WKSE-FM's program director, Sue O'Neil,on air personalities, Nick Picholas and Janet Snyder. Let them know you will not tolerate such comments and demand an on air apology

Janet: “Oh I saw this picture it makes me feel icky looking at it.”
Nick: “The world's... Well... Huh.... Not a good looking pregnant guy, is all I'm saying. The world's second pregnant man due to give birth in February his name is Scott – Scott Moore. Pregnant... With his first child... And his husband Tom. Now... Just to connect the dots here and make you understand how there's a pregnant dude, both Scott and Thomas were born female and legally married in California – so they are... born female... switched over... did a a transfer there... Scott is still listed on his birth certificate as female and has not gone under the knife -- he does take um, hormones and has had operations on some parts of his body but not all of them and is... very pregnant at this time due to give birth in February... Obviously ready to pop there's another pregnant dude but that's...”
Nick: “But that's just...”
Janet: “Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!”
Nick: “Ya know, well...”
Janet: “it's just... You know what it is when I see a shot of a man with a pregnant belly?”
Nick: “It looks weird with a beard.”
Nick: “Weird with a beard is all I'm saying.”
Janet: “Yeah, yeah...”
Nick: “So yeah.”
Janet: “So no.”
Nick: “There's that...”
Janet: “...and I can't even imagine why a guy would want to... Not... Lotta work... Kind of... Hard to do. I don't know...”
