Judge rejects divorce for transgender pregnant man
AP ^ | 3-29-13 | ap

Posted on 03/29/2013 10:24:25 AM PDT by TurboZamboni

PHOENIX—An Arizona judge on Friday refused to grant a divorce for a transgender Arizona man who gave birth to three children after beginning to change his sex from female. Maricopa County Family Court Judge Douglas Gerlach ruled that Arizona's ban on same-sex marriages prevents Thomas Beatie's nine-year union from being recognized as valid. Thomas Beatie was born a woman and underwent a double-mastectomy but retained female reproductive organs and gave birth to three children. Gerlach said he had no jurisdiction to approve a divorce because there's insufficient evidence that Beatie was a man when he married Nancy Beatie in Hawaii.

This is what now passes for “normal” in our country. If you call it what it is, you’re the crazy one. Time to exit this hell hole. Just not sure where else to go.

man who gave birth to three children

You can write it in a news story, oh PC overlords at AP, but that doesn't mean it actually happened.

This is what ALL INCLUSIVE leads to. The left would have the worst football team in history, with the water boy doing the quarterbacking and cheer leaders on the offensive line. But hey, it’s ALL INCLUSIVE. That how these socialist lunatics would run this country into the ground

You must think positively.

If by "the end" you mean an end to all this anti-God crap, then we must rejoice.

It is sort of like the feeling you get just before you vomit, you know, you don't want to, your guts are in major turmoil and you are fighting the urge to stick your head over the toilet.

But, you know that you are going to feel a whole lot better at that point when you just let it fly.

That is where we are at right now.

After all - this is one of the worst cases of Multiple Personality Disorder ever seen.

A double mastectomy does not turn a woman into a man or there are a lot of breast cancer patients out there who have become men.

Male hormones don’t turn a woman into a man even if too much of them will put whiskers on her - they won’t make a penis and testicles appear.

Two working ovaries, a uterus, a vagina, no Y chromosome and three successful pregnancies would pretty much seem to prove someone is a woman but what do I know?

I don’t live in a crazy person’s head and I don’t write crazy legislation and I don’t write crazy propaganda news stories, so I don’t know anything.

IMO, the judge ought to grant her a divorce from reality on grounds of abandonment and failure to support.

This was the "guy" on Oprah as the "first pregnant man."

"Thomas" is on the left. Those are three kids he carried to term. There was talk of a fourth but I don't know if it happened.

Now that his divorce has been denied, the LGBT lawyers will gin up a lawsuit to force AZ to recognize his marriage and grant the divorce and force them to recognize transgendered and/or same sex marriage.

That is the whole point of this or they would have gotten a divorce in HI.

Someone should ask Annette Bening about this. She must be an authority as she starred in ‘The Kids are Allright’; a movie about two lesbians raising a boy and a girl. And she and Warren Beatty have a ‘transgendered’ daughter/son.

Why would people who were never married need a divorce?

That was the Judge's point. As a practical matter, I'm sure the Dad/Mom here wants to spearate her "wife" from a significant share of her income until the kids are 19 (Mommies get an extra year in the Daddies pockets in AZ).

When in doubt, follow the money.

This is what now passes for “normal” in our country.

The only normal thing in this story is the rational decision by this judge. But expect reason to be overturned.

The correct response to this person would be, “ I remand you into the custody of the state mental institution for your own protection. It is obvious you are a danger to yourself since you had your perfectly healthy breasts removed. Now you want to become, and claim to be a man, obvious proof that you are out of your mind.

What does your birth certificate say? Female? Well then you are a female for the rest of your life. No mater how many body parts you change,.......... “you’ll always be a woman to me”.

Cutting and pasting body parts is self mutilation. Whether you did it yourself or hired someone to do it for you, (ex. murder for hire, you are still guilty of murder).

Bailiff, remove this POS from my courtroom.

LOL remember this freak, we are supposed to call this lesbian a “he” even though she’s been pregnant 3 times now. Yeah, I’m sorry I can’t. Of all the movies I think might come true “Junior” with Arnold Schwarzenegger is not one of them.

She wants a divorce (!!!! shock) and is having trouble getting it because she moved from Hawaii to America.

Get this, Beatty’s daughter who wants to be a man, likes men.

So his daughter thinks she is a gay man. Only in America!

There is that tremendously wonderful feeling that comes after vomiting. The brain releases Endorphine after you get sick.

Your analogy is dead-on.
