crazy....and i feel for the daughter.
He's a transgender - he wasn't born a male, he was born a female. The baby was born using his latter parts. The title of the article is pretty misleading, as it implies that a naturally biological male was able to carry a fetus child to term...it should actually read, "Transgender man gives birth to daughter."
THAT, on the other hand, would have been absolutely newsworthy.
I hate how they call him a man. If he's got a vag and a uterus, he's a freaking woman.
Biologically speaking. His legal and social identity, however, is as a male.
That child is going to need lots of psychiatric coaching.
Or perhaps not, as gay/lesbian couples have raised perfectly mentally healthy children.
Oh, of course. It's just frustrating how they have to add wonder to it by stating that it's a pregnant man. But I guess it's just to shock people and gain attention to the story. Congrats to them, though.
Agreed - I really don't feel like this should be news at all...I'm thinking it's more an issue of curiosity around transgenders, to be honest.
Woo, intolerance is rife here today...
I say congratulations to them, for having the sheer brass to have the baby and make it public. There are a lot of people who bring children into the world for all wrong reasons, and here's two people who genuinely want to have a child for the right reasons - Doesn't matter which one of them actually gave birth!
and as for psychiactric coaching... What for? As far as that kid'll be concerned, she'll be normal until other people start telling her she's wrong. If his folks do a good enough job of raising her, she'll be just fine.
Too bad he can't reproduce asexually, since he's both man and woman.
But yeah that poor kid's gonna need lots of counselling when she grows up.
"Hey is that your dad?"
"Yes.. and no.. he's my mom too"
"But it's a he"
"Well I call him my dad.. but he gave birth to me so he's my mom too"
"So who do you call your mom?"
I could say a lot that could get me in trouble, but I will say I wish the best for the kid.
Beat me to it. I'm petitioning the mods to change the title.
But seriously, she isn't a man. She's a women. All the hormones in the world don't change the fact that e'ery cell in her body has two X chromsomes. Shee-it.
Intolerance? Woah woah woah.
See, just 'cause I call it like I see it doesn't make me intolerant. It makes me unwilling to pretend something isn't true for the sake of someone's feelings.
They can do whatever they want, and I won't do anything to stop them. That's me being tolerant. But y'know what the price of my tolerance is, right? It's you and them being tolerant of me saying what I want when I want. Don't get to have cake and eat it also, right?
Good, now we can move the F**K on.
I agree with you. S/he had everything else removed, why not that?
Woman. Pregnant woman.
