Transgender "man" is pregnant (pic)
BoingBoing.net ^ | 3/24/08 | Thomas Beatie

Posted on 03/24/2008 10:23:37 PM PDT by Callahan

To our neighbors, my wife, Nancy, and I don’t appear in the least unusual. To those in the quiet Oregon community where we live, we are viewed just as we are -- a happy couple deeply in love. Our desire to work hard, buy our first home, and start a family was nothing out of the ordinary. That is, until we decided that I would carry our child.

I am transgender, legally male, and legally married to Nancy. Unlike those in same-sex marriages, domestic partnerships, or civil unions, Nancy and I are afforded the more than 1,100 federal rights of marriage. Sterilization is not a requirement for sex reassignment, so I decided to have chest reconstruction and testosterone therapy but kept my reproductive rights. Wanting to have a biological child is neither a male nor female desire, but a human desire.

Wasn’t a feller named Carlos from the Philippines the first pregnant dude a few years back?

>>This is insanity. Period.<<

Well, technically speaking...you are correct. This is basically an insane woman that had her breasts removed, took testosterone shots and still got pregnant. She is a one woman freak show. And the fact that she did it voluntarily means she is quite literally insane.

I see why the word “man” is in quotes. This person is simply a woman that has had surgery and taken drugs to make her look like a man.

Although she doesn’t look like a man now. She just looks “butch” and pregnant.

20 or 30 years down the line we are going to see there are problems with all these abnormally-conceived humans. Now that there are enough children around produced by in vitro fertilization, they are doing studies. One found that IVF children have twice the number of medical problems as naturally conceived children. With any of these unnatural methods, I bet in a few generations we will see more and more genetic defects, mutations, hormonal problems, etc (not to mention the psychological ones!).

Both genders could want a child, but the woman bears it.

Yeah. Luckily millions of unwed teenagers are producing children the old-fashioned way. Take a moment to fear or the future of our society.

Has there ever yet been a child born to a woman who has taken heavy doses of testosterone for years before the pregnancy??? What chance that child has of being hormonally normal, I can’t imagine.

And so this little innocent and hopefully perfectly formed child comes into the world and is immediately placed at the mercy of this narcissistic moron who thinks only to use this gift of life as a spotlight to bask in before what they imagine to be an admiring world.

Some time ago, perhaps less than a couple of years, I read an article about a 'doctor' in San Francisco, who was born male, but had a sex change so he could live with his lesbian girlfriend, as a lesbian.

Uh, if he liked women, well, that's natural enough, ok! But no, he didn't want to be a man, but didn't want a sex-change, converting himself into being an [ahem] woman, because he wanted to be with men...

Then again, many guys would say they are lesbians, of course...but how many actually want to abandon their own equipment just to be one?

That S.F. doctor's switcheroo, sort-of makes your tagline look straight-arrow in comparison!

Maybe it’s photoshopped.

I was confused just reading the article. Why would someone do a thing like that? Sad. So what will the kid call mom? dad? both?

Barring some sort of miracle, this child is going to be the biggest serial killer the modern world has ever seen.

Dateline 2032. Presumptive Islamic Socialist Party Presidential nominee Senator Chelsea Clinton faces an unexpected challenge from Oregon Governor Moonbeam Beatie who charged that Clinton's lack of a transgendered parents left her unprepared to lead in the wake of the Male Pregnancy Normalization Act of 2029. Clinton countered that her mother, the late Hillary Clinton may not have been male, but was close enough.

What doctor allowed that? They should lose their license.

The hormones can cause some horrid birth defects, plus testosterone is a controlled substance, so the doctor and this “woman” or whatever she is now both committed a felony.

I am transgender, legally male

How can she be legally a male if she hasn't had ALL of the surgery required to make her a 'male'? Seems that all of it must be done in order for her to qualify.

How can you have 'sex reassignment' without the surgery being done? That needs to change.

I guess her 'legally male' designation should now be legally challenged. And the law needs to be rewritten to prevent this kind of thing from happening. Or else this is nothing but a freak show that doctors are putting on. Shouldn't there be any ethics involved?

I think some social agency needs to step in, and take the child from her, when/if it is born. How can you subject a child to that?

I feel so sorry for the child.

I’m STILL confused. Who is the father of the child? The biological father? This is a woman with some male accoutrements, married to a woman, who conceived...how? IVF? There had to be a “sperm donor” somewhere along the line, who is it?

Have you guys read some of these quotes???

How fascinating. How sf is this? And it makes me very uncomfortable, but in a way that indicates I have a bit of dogma to hunt down and kill.

This is awesome.

This kind of item is useful as educational I suppose, but it really ought to be considered passe. Pity the planet is still so backward. Now, formal legal recognition of full, basic human rights for this person - and child - now that IS worth posting. More I think about it, sex really ought to be dropped from all legal constructions. We are ALL human. We all have the SAME rights. Matters of DNA and social roles are secondary to our intrinsic value.

It's a guy NOT a woman,and please don't call him "she" that is a really insulting thing to do. This article was incredible - I am in awe of his bravery and strength. Thank you for posting this.

It goes on and on....What a bunch of freaks.
