Thomas Beatie: the Pregnant Man
Thomas Beatie shocked the whole world when he came out pregnant during Oprah. E! has also reported this to be true. In fact, this news made it as far as the local news channel in the Philippines. And why wouldn't it? Allegedly, this pregnant wonder is said have Filipino blood. Amazing.

Born Tracy LaGondino, Beatie had undergone a sex reassignment through testosterone therapy and chest reconstruction therapy after falling in love with Nancy (his now wife). However, after their marriage, Nancy was unable to conceive. Beatie, opted to be the one to carry their baby through artificial insemination. Although he is legally recognized as a male, Beatie had retained his female genitalia, enabling the pregnancy to be possible. After two attempts at artificial insemination, he has finally become pregnant safely and effectively. He is said to be due on July 3, 2008.

There is much talk regarding this issue since it pretty much presents the idea of males getting pregnant. But the thing is, Beatie is not exactly male since he did not go through the whole sex change. The fact that he retained his female genitalia still pretty much make him female. Therefore there is not much of a BIG deal. I think.

But the issue brought forth with his announcement makes people wonder if the world is ready for males to be the carriers of the next generation.

I personally think it would be a bit okay if men had a shot at the pregnancy bit. :D Let's see how men will deal with it. But I dont think they are born for that. I mean, women were born and created in this likeness - equipped for childbirth. Men? Not so much.

What do you think about the Thomas Beatie and his pregnant state?

XOXO,

About Me: even when she has fairy wings on, this girl is anything BUT dainty. perhaps the size, the weight, and the personality alone are just too much for her to be considered delicate, prim, proper, and refined. this girl with the mud smudged cheeks has been down on the ground one to many times. these times forced her to be tougher, smarter, and more savvy than she has ever been. perhaps she will always be, never dainty. email me: neverdainty [at] gmail [dot] com
