Pregnant Man

Saw this story on the news earlier this week. Its about a woman who had surgery and testosterone therapy to become a transgender man. Even went so far as to legally have his sex changed from female to male. Then he married a woman. Then he found out his wife couldn’t bear children (hysterectomy). Then he got pregnant and had a baby girl. Now he’s pregnant for a second time.

Great snippets from the column:

“After years of struggling with his sexual identity and deciding to live as a man, he did the most womanly thing possible – he became pregnant.”

“Beatie was impregnated with sperm from a donor. His wife, Nancy, inseminated him at home with a device she said was like a syringe without the needle. They bought it from a veterinarian and it is typically used to feed birds.”

“He quickly went from a Miss Teen Hawaii USA finalist to taking testosterone and growing a beard”

“The couple had a difficult time finding a doctor who was willing to help them conceive. They saw nine obstetricians before one was willing to help them.”

I’m curious what other people’s reactions to this story are. This isn’t intended to be a debate on the morals of transgender culture. I’m more interested on opinions of this isolated case.

I can understand why a couple who are in love would want to have kids. But for this couple, I see adoption as a much better route. I mean how brutal is it gonna be for this kid when his parents sit him down and explain that daddy is actually his birth mommy but before daddy was daddy he was a girl from Hawaii. Kids in middle school are cruel enough to begin with.

Could you imagine if this kid’s middle school peers eventually find this story out?! Forget ridiculing the fat kid. This kid would be the butt of every joke for the better part of his adolescent and teenage life. On a lighter note, if the kid were adopted he would be untouchable. No one makes fun of someone for being adopted. That’s just mean.

Old news.

welcome to liberalism my friends…i’ve seen this story on tv and the news

Apparently these transgendered perverts are so insane that they believe by simply having your tits removed and popping a few testosterone pills qualifies you as a man…

How much ultra tolerance can the left push on America before we lose all sense of right and wrong?

They used to lock loonies like this chick up and medicate her for the good of society, now the sickos and perverts in the media explain her pregnancy as a “miracle” because she is assuming the gender of a male.

This is some sick shit…and it’s starting to prove that diversity is perversity.

Yea its old news.

LOL, Mak you get around.
Not only old news, but hey, she is still a woman. A legal document does not make you a man, a penis does.

Is it gay to think that Rupaul has nice legs? I mean for a man…woman…

Ugh, that’s so gross I can’t even explain it.

I’m really not fond of the whole transgender culture.

When the WOMAN in question has the nerve to sew it up and remove her overies/uterus, then I’s say yes, for all intents and purposes, it’s now a man, who is lacking external sex organs.
She is still a woman, men cannot get pregnant, that’s just silly. She is just an attention whore.

Why are you always on about women, Stan?

I want to be one.

What?

I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me ‘Loretta’.

What?!

It’s my right as a man.

Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?

I want to have babies.

You want to have babies?!

It’s every man’s right to have babies if he wants them.

But… you can’t have babies.

Don’t you oppress me.
I’m not oppressing you, Stan. You haven’t got a womb! Where’s the foetus going to gestate?! You going to keep it in a box?!

Here! I-- I’ve got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can’t actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody’s fault, not even the Romans’, but that he can have the right to have babies.

Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister. Sorry.

What’s the point?

What?

What’s the point of fighting for his right to have babies when he can’t have babies?!

It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.

Symbolic of his struggle against reality.
