TransamericaGristmill wonders if the recent arrival of intersex fish in the Potomac should be blamed on Felicity Huffman. These fish show both male and female “characteristics”. I, however, doubt the relationship. The first of these fish were discovered in a West Virginia stream in 2003 – far before Felicity’s rise to fame. More details from the more serious article:

In the past 10 years, pollutants mimicking hormones have raised alarms around the world as alligators, frogs, polar bears and other animals have developed abnormalities.

Scientists have identified a large number of pollutants that could be to blame — including human estrogen from processed sewage, animal estrogen from farm manure, certain pesticides and soap additives.

The discovery in Minnesota over a decade ago of frogs with extra legs, ovaries in males and other deformities was considered an early warning sign of environmental distress linked to farm chemicals.

Congress in 1996 required the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to study how the pollutants may affect human health. A decade later, however, officials said the agency hasn’t tested any chemical, the Post reported.
