The pregnant man....what a crock!

Does anyone else think so? I am SO confused why this is such a big story (SHE is trying again)
ok.......
SHE was born a girl
SHE decided she was really a man inside.
SHE has facial hair and no boobs (so do some women I know)
The baby grew in HER uterus
and was PUSHED out HER girl parts.

Explain how that equals up to a MAN having a baby?! This story irritates me b/c this is something special that only women can do. It's a HUGE deal, and SHE decided SHE wanted to be a man! I get that her wife had cancer so therefore can't have a baby. Ok, fine. I am glad the can have a family BUT a MAN did NOT have a baby!!!!
Does this irritate anyone else?

  • Legalities do not make you a a man or woman. when a MAN carries a baby in his whatever and NEVER had a uterus OR a vagina....I will be impressed!

  • I totally agree with the OP. It's a girl. I don't care what s/he is legally on paper or otherwise. Physically she's a woman (CLEARLY since a baby was growing inside for nine months and then was born twice). I get that he's going to become a man or he's in the process or whatever it is. But it's not like this is a medical marvel. I did the same thing last year, where's my interview with Barbara Walters?

  • There's a documentary called Southern Comfort. One of the people it follows is a transgendered man who developed ovarian cancer. Every doctor he called refused to treat him because it my traumatize the other patients to have a man in the room. He died a few years ago. If he can be refused treatment and basically be murdered by the medical profession for being a man, this one can damn well be pregnant and be considered a man.
