Pregnant Man

Now the world seems pretty different from what it used to be. From plastic surgeries to imitate one’s idol, to surgical processes that can somehow change ones gender, and now, the improbable possibility of a man getting pregnant.

But wait, this might not be the case that might change the way the males think about sex, considering the fact that now, they too can bear the child. It may seem alarming for a man (not a seahorse) to be pregnant, but as long genetics and science is still around, there won’t be a need to fear any of this.

Thomas Beatie, the “pregnant man” that caught a lot of public attention, is actually a transgender. Now this makes sense. Though legally counted in the population as a male, he/she (now i’m confused) still comprises the biological body of a female. Thus, in any way, she can still be pregnant.

Thomas writes, “Ten years ago, when Nancy (wife) and I became a couple, the idea of us having a child was more dream than plan. I always wanted to have children. However, due to severe endometriosis 20 years ago, Nancy had to undergo a hysterectomy and is unable to carry a child.

Thomas knew he had to sacrifice a lot, and be in proper condition to bare a child inside her ( still pregnant capable) body, but as for him, nothing compares to having their own child, whichever parent it may come from.

And by the way, he’s due this coming July 2008.

3 Critical:

  1. Has Every Right? – with legality as the basis, now we can really say he has every right to the child. Is this gonna be fair? Who knows?
  2. Breaking The Boundaries – without a doubt, people now are breaking the boundaries of what used to be. Not that it’s a bad thing actually.
  3. I See A Movie – now don’t be surprised if I tell you someday, someone’s gonna make a movie out of this. You’ve thought of that too right?

Hi. I’m Paula from Brazil.
I just got to watch the news today at The Oprah Show. When I heard about the “pregnant man” I imagined it could be a woman… but after a while I got myself wondering “… or is there a way that man can be pergnant too?” Stupid thought of course, but you thing of anything when you cann’t believe it.
I loved the way they behaved as a couple, maybe it will be easier for people to accept them as a family.

This is wonderful, God created this child whichever parent carries the child it is a gift.

I think it’s incredible how any mature person can sit and say how “damaged” this child will be. This is only because of ignorant and unaccepting people who believe that Thomas and his family are sick. BTW, he gave birth earlier this week to a baby girl! I can’t wait to see their documentary.
