Snippet from the article:
This baldness cure was a bust. For nine months, William McKee took the generic version of Propecia, the pills that promise to halt hair loss. But the drug had radical side effects: Instead of becoming a better-looking man, he started becoming a woman, he claims.
â€œMy rock-hard chest from the gym began to soften . . . reaching the point where I had noticeable â€˜breasts’ even under my clothing,â€ he says.
Among other changes, the 38-year-old software engineer claims, â€œmy shoulders were literally falling into a more feminine position, and my hips were loosening and becoming wider, as on a woman’s body.â€
McKee, who says he wasn’t inclined to cross-dress before, began feeling like a woman. He is now only attracted to men.
Wow. The article starts with calling Propecia a cure that didn’t work, so the story itself begins with a loss of journalistic credibility right off the bat (there is no cure for hair loss). The story and the source are highly suspect, and this is hyped up BS. I have an extremely difficult time believing an ounce of truth to this. The guy said he bought a generic finasteride online from India (probably without a prescription), and now he is frustrated that he can’t sue Merck… so this is the story that gets spun and published.
For all that Propecia has been blamed for, this is a new extreme. Propecia does not turn you gay and it doesn’t make you want to dress like a woman. But I guess with all the hysteria out there, Propecia becomes a convenient catch-all excuse for anything and everything.
