Man Gives Birth

Recommended Posts

So Thomas Beatie finally gave birth to his daughter. I remembered we had talked about this story before...

 

'Pregnant man' gives birth to baby girl -- Newsday.com

 

Quote:
A transgender man who made national news earlier this year when he revealed he was pregnant has given birth to a girl, ABC News reported.

 

Thomas Beatie, 34. who became pregnant through artificial insemination, gave birth Sunday to a healthy baby. The Oregon man was resting and healthy, according to ABC. The birth was natural.

 

Beatie, who was born a woman, kept his female sex organs.

 

"I actually opted not to do anything to my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day," he told Oprah Winfrey earlier this year. "I see pregnancy as a process and it doesn't define who I am."

 

According to ABC, he was inseminated with a donor's sperm at his home by his wife. The device was described as similar to a syringe without the needle.

I know it is weird but I read the article and I was just so happy for them. I know a lot of people don't understand being transgendered but in this day and age I'd rather see someone be truly happy even if they are different then be unhappy trying to be normal and as long as they couple loves the child and is always looking out for the child's best interest then things should be fine!

The transgender thing... I mean... I have a friend who transitioned... so I try and "get it" but I don't. I've never been "trapped" by my body and needed to change my gender.

 

I know there is a lot of hype about a "man getting pregnant" -- but the reality is, he just changed his socialized gender is taking hormones.

 

I'm glad they are happy -- and most importantly, I'm glad that a baby will grow up loved.

 

I just don't get it.

 

If I decided I wanted to be a cat and started living my life as a cat, I doubt people would accept it. They'd say, "no, you were born a human." And even if I said "but I was born incorrectly, I am actually a cat." They would probably take me someplace happy until I got my head on straight again.

 

*sigh*

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
