The Pregnant Man

I’ve been seeing this picture of “a pregnant man” on and off for about two weeks now and today, I finally decided to read the story.

Quick overview: Nancy and Thomas are having a baby but Nancy’s not the one who’s pregnant. Thomas, the husband is with child. [WTF?] Nancy has two adult girls of her own from a previous marriage and the effects of endometriosis left her unable to have more children. [Does she need more children?] At which point they decided that Thomas should try to conceive. [WTF?] Of course no doctors wanted to help them so they decided to do it themselves at home. After one ectopic pregnancy (and surgery to remove the embryos), they conceived! They call it a miracle. [I call it normal?]

The real story here is that Thomas, the husband, is actually Tracy, former Miss Teen Hawaii finalist, who had her breasts removed, started taking testosterone, and morphed from female to male.

Now, I have zero problem with gays, transgenders, and the like …but don’t fucking pretend like you’re a man and act like it’s a fucking miracle that you’re pregnant when you have a womb in which to carry a baby! Here’s another problem; now that shim removed said breasts, how’s the “miracle” baby gonna suckle on biddy?

Moral of the story: Just cuz it looks like a man, sounds like a man, and acts like a man, doesn’t make it a man. And another thing; An enlarged clitoris is not a cock – it’s not even a teeny weeny – and I don’t care what (s)he says, (s)he cannot have intercourse with it!

This should just be filed under STUPID and MORE STUPID PEOPLE POPULATING THE EARTH – but those two topics alone would substantiate an entirely new blog. hmmm.

    Dear Maegan,

    Thank you for your site, I like it!

    When I first saw the title of this post, “The Pregnant Man,” I felt excited and expected to read yet another positive acknowledgment of transgendered folks in our society, like Lana Wachowski’s recent speech at The Human Right’s Campaign http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/lana-wachowski-reveals-suicide-plan-382169.

    And then… I was really sad to read disrespectful words about someone’s gender identity, trans bodies, and the way Thomas and his partner (it seems from your post) have described having sex.

    Really, we have no clue how others fuck, make love, or experience each other’s bodies. Sex, as we know, can be a powerful and profound experience, that is (ideally) beyond what we can understand with our logical minds or from our limited personal perspective.

    So let me say, we have no idea what it’s like to live in someone else’s body. What we do know is that a transgendered woman or man IS a woman or man, respectively — not because we are telling them so, but because they are telling us so. It’s really that simple. You identify as a woman and everyone respects that. Thomas identifies as a man, and as a matter of human dignity, we all gotta respect that too (even if we don’t totally understand it yet).
