Why does actress Morena Baccarin have an Adam’s apple?

I know there are more important things for me to post about, but this is one of those trivia that nags and bugs.

From Wikipedia:

The Adam’s apple, or laryngeal prominence, is a feature of the human neck, and is the lump or protrusion that is formed by the angle of the thyroid cartilage surrounding the larynx.

The structure of the Adam’s apple forms a bump under the skin. It is typically larger in adult males, in whom it is usually clearly visible and palpable. In females, the bump is much less visible and is hardly perceived on the upper edge of the thyroid cartilage. […]

An Adam’s apple is solely a characteristic feature of adult males, because its size tends to increase considerably during puberty. Its development is considered a secondary sexual characteristic of males that appears as a result of hormonal activity. Its level of development varies among individuals and the widening of that area in the larynx can occur very suddenly and quickly…. During adolescence, the thyroid cartilage grows together with the larynx. Consequently, the laryngeal prominence grows in size mainly in men. Together, a larger soundboard is made up in phonation apparatus and, as a result, the man gets a deeper voice note.

Here’s a pic of a man’s Adam’s apple:

Some time ago, I rented from Netflix Showtime’s Homeland TV series. A character in the first two seasons was Jessica Brody, the wife of Marine sergeant Nicholas Brody. The actress who played the wife is Morena Baccarin — a Brazil-born, attractive, feminine-looking woman, albeit with a preternaturally long neck.

Watching Baccarin, however, was disconcerting because of her prominent Adam’s apple.

Wikipedia says Morena Baccarin has a son with her first husband, and a daughter with her second husband. Below is a pic I found of a heavily pregnant Baccarin at an Emmy party on September 22, 2013:

Baccarin is said to have undergone plastic surgery for breast implants and a nose job. So why didn’t she shave her Adam’s apple?

Among the women I’ve known, I’ve never seen one with an Adam’s apple. Have you?

  1. does she have a deep voice? If she carried two babies she surely cannot have been a male at one time. I agree it looks strange but like you said there are bigger issues to worry about.

  6. You’ll get your answer by going to YT and search “transvestigation”. In fact you will learn more than you ever want to know and that “Trans” has been part of the entertainment and political systems for a hugely long time.

  7. Chelsea MANning looks like a man from all angles, regardless of her/his obvious adam’s apple. Morena on the other hand definitely looks like a woman. From what I have read it is possible for a woman to be born with one.

  10. Yes, I’ve seen that on a woman. It was a cyst, had it excised, and biopsy found thyroid cancer.

  12. Some women do have them. It isn’t their fault, just a flaw. God knows, in the world we live in, such things can happen to otherwise normal people.

  13. I would be willing to undertake a covert action to determine if Morena is actually a woman capable of actual fertilization… loved to hate her on StarGate SG-1.
    Of course, per my morals, that would require becoming her hubby #3 first, but that could likely be annulled once we found out she’s actually an alien tranny… an extra-terrestrial alien, at that.


  14. “In females, the bump is much less visible and is hardly perceived on the upper edge of the thyroid cartilage. […]” unless of course the woman has an extraordinarily long neck and next to no body fat with which to cover it…. I have never seen this woman before, but she looks lovely to me.

  16. Speaking of apples:

    “The forbidden fruit in the Bible was not an apple. It only became known as an apple when the bible was translated into Latin in the 4th century, because the word ‘Malus’ means both apple and evil.”

  17. The photo posted of Baccarin showing a ‘very pregnant’ red gown also shows her extended left hand against that dress. What’s interesting is the length of her ring finger vis-à-vis her index. Only genetic males have a longer ring finger in relation to the index.

    • Interesting observation, MCP! Someone should examine Baccarin’s other physical characteristics, such as shoulder width (relative to hips), placement of belly button, etc.

      While the length of the ring finger is ONE of the physiological indicators of gender, it is neither a necessary nor sufficient condition — as attested by many female readers of FOTM.
