THIS IS NO BELLY GAFFE (PREGNANT POP AIMS TO DELIVER)
NY Post ^ | March 29, 2008 | JENNIFER FERMINO

Posted on 03/29/2008 11:00:11 AM PDT by presidio9

A pregnant Oregon man who sports a beard with his baby bump insists he is "perfectly capable" of giving birth despite years of hormone treatments to make him a male.

"I'm a person and I have the right to have my own biological child," Thomas Beatie, 34, told Oprah Winfrey for a show airing next Thursday.

Beatie made worldwide headlines after announcing his extraordinary pregnancy in The Advocate magazine - and posing topless to show off his bulging belly, pancake bosom and mounds of armpit hair.

"Wanting to have a biological child is neither a male nor a female desire, but a human desire," he wrote in the April 8 issue of the magazine, geared toward gays, lesbians and transgender people.

Beatie legally became a man after undergoing a sex-change operation, but he kept his female reproductive organs.

In order to conceive, he said, he stopped taking his twice-weekly testosterone injections and started getting his period after an eight-year hiatus.

He used a sperm donor to get pregnant and did not require fertility treatments.

The macho mama, who is due this summer, said he decided to carry the baby because his wife, Nancy Richards, couldn't conceive.

"Who hires a surrogate if they are perfectly capable of carrying their own child?" he said in an interview for next week's People magazine, portions of which were released yesterday.

Beatie acknowledges he and his wife are in uncharted territory and that much of the reaction has been negative.

"Health-care professionals have refused to call me by a male pronoun or recognize Nancy as my wife. Receptionists have laughed at us. Friends and family have been unsupportive," he wrote.

When he suffered an ectopic pregnancy in his initial attempt at conception, his brother told him it was probably

It isn't a he but a she not matter what was chopped off or glued on where. I feel for the child being brought up in that environment, not to mention what all those testosterone shots and who know what other drugs are messing with her development.

This is not a man. It's a mentally-deranged female who has paid quacks to mutilate her and pump her up with hormones.

Don't let the MSM fool you into thinking a "man" is giving birth. If you did a chromosome test on this individual, it would come back "XX". You can't fool genetics.

If you read the article, you’ll see it’s no hoax. The “guy” is really a woman biologically - he was born a female but took hormones to become a MALE. Since a female-to-male sex change doesn’t necessarily require the removal of the uterus (in the way a female-to-male change would require the removal of the penis and surgical creation of a vagina, all this “guy” had to do was find someone to donate the sperm.

These people really are confused. They want it all.

Bingo. And as an aside, when did the term "bump" come into play to describe pregnant women's bellies? About two weeks ago, I spotted the same annoying term on the cover of almost every single tabloid and celebrity rag at the checkout counter. It's like a craze.

I know. It’s another way our “media” puts out false information. The article should say “Woman who underwent Sex Change to Become Man Is Pregnant” (Whoop-De-Doo).

No big deal - the internal anatomy is all there - What a bunch of losers these people are and this is what the universities are teaching is now “normal.”

I am so glad you wrote that. The term “baby bump” is right up there with “baby mama” and “my bad.” The continual dumbing down of America continues....

Hmm. Maybe the problem isn't with all of us. Maybe the problem is that what you're doing is just wrong.

Maybe, regardless of how many of you militants and attention-whores pervert the easily perverted, the rest of us just ain't going to buy off on it.

My guess is she’s on the pill and running around on her.

No, she didn’t become a man. She is genetically female with her reproductive organs intact.

She’s a woman who has had massive amounts of hormones, breast amputation, and needs mental help.

This is no different than someone thinking they are a cat, and having surgery to have a tail and cat ears added.

This “thing” is not a man. “It” is a woman who mutilated her body out of self hatred most likely.

Does that really matter? If she/he wants to have a baby, no matter WHAT happens to this poor child, then to heck with the baby! They have no problem ripping the unborn apart limb from limb so this really isn’t too big a suprise. Gross....yes!

This is no man, this is a woman who has spent yrs on hormone treatments trying to become a man, now “it” is trying to revert to a being a woman.

This is the sort of crap that the taxpayer will have to pony up for if the Dhimmis win in Nov, it’s totally sick, these folks have mental illnesses.

I am so sick of this culture of narcissistic sensationalism in which people strive to outdo each other’s ability to be bizarre. They care not a whit for the impact on anyone else, or the distraction from things of actual importance or merit.
They are 4-year-olds all screaming “watch me, mommy, watch me, mommy, WAAAAATCH MEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”.

I’ve heard the phrase ‘baby bump’ since I was a kid, and that’s about 35+ years ago! (speaking as a mom-to-be with 2 baby bumps at this time!) ;-)

I think when you see the tabloids using the phrase it just seems more ‘trashy’, but personally I don’t find anything offensive about the description itself. There IS a bump when the baby/ies start showing! ;-)

She doesn't have a penis. Below the belt, she's all woman. Why they continues calling this female a "he" is mystifying.

No "man" is giving birth in this story.

We’re going to have a rally for our cause. All of us heterosexual bigots are gathering to protest for our rights. We even have a chant, which I will share:

“What do we have?”

“A penis!”

“Where do we want it?”

Well, you can fill in the rest. LOL

That's a pet peeve of my wife and me, too. It started with British tabloids, who are always coming up with annoying new euphemisms, like calling Madonna "Madge" (like the manicurist on the old commericals -- Madonna's done a lot of creepy things, but I don't recall her ever soaking anyone's hands in dishwashing liquid). Now, they've given us "baby bump," and we are to the point of screaming every time we hear that obnoxious, cutesy-poo term.

She never went that far with the surgery. She had her breasts removed, that's all. Kept the rest of her biologically female organs. SHE is woman perfectly capable of conceiving and delivering, she has removed voluntarily her ability to FEED the child in a natural way is all. The media, and doctors too, who insist upon called women like this, men are corrupt soles, and it is cruel to feed into their non reality this way. They need REAL (not PC) mental help!

She supposedly started menstruating after an 8-yr. suspension. Before she got pregnant, what did she do for feminine protection? I can’t imagine a man dealing with -excuse me for saying this - a bleeding penis.
