Univision Celebrates Pregnant Trans With ´Unaffected Masculinity´ 

Celebrating the miracle of life is a matter of who’s at Univision, as the network´s midday news team showcased. Minutes after validating abortion as a birth control method during a report about selling contraceptive pills over the counter, “now that abortion is not an option”, anchors Borja Voces and Carolina Sarassa, enlightened their audiences with the ‘marvelous story’ of how Ian Alejandro Rubey, a 31-year old woman transitioning as a male, got pregnant without “affecting his masculinity”.

Watch as Sarassa attempts to normalize the moment when a bearded, pregnant ´they´ first listened to the babies´ heartbeats.

BORJA VOCES: He is a 31-year-old science teacher; he has twins. Ian Alejandro is transgender and discovered he was ready to have a family.


SARASSA – You’re already 33 weeks along and your baby can be born anytime. Please tell me and transport yourself back to the moment you visited your doctor, where they confirmed you were indeed pregnant. It was actually two hearts that you saw beating the first time. Was it the moment you realized it was working (the fertility treatment).

The 5-minute plus report about ´the Digital Twins´, as Sarassa warmly called the 33-week-old babies, pondered on all the details; will it be a C-section or natural birth? Is it possible they will arrive sooner? Are they known by their names already? Are you familiar with many of the challenges that they face?

While Voces closed the feature lauding Univision´s “inclusive reporting”, we would love to see real inclusion, as in stories of babies saved from abortion thanks to the SCOTUS decision to overide Roe v. Wade- delivered, of course, with the same degree of awe and admiration.
