  • That whole thing really irks me, "he" hasn't completed the whole process and as far as I'm concerned yet isn't really a man yet. I have nothing against gender reassignment, if that's what it takes to make you feel comfortable in your own skin go for it. But, I thought that you had to have completed the whole process to be legally considered male? Seeing as "he" still had his uterus and female genitalia intact I don't really think it was worth all the fuss everyone made over it.

    And no, no way would my husband EVER be willing to carry a child. I could just see him jammed up under a Honda trying to work around his big growing belly, lmbo.

  • who would pregnant him? i know i couldn't but if some weird unlikely way it could happen i don't think i man would want too and technically that so called pregnant man is not really a man right? he is in fact a woman. being that it would be to weird i would have to say i wouldn't even though i tell them i wish that they could experience the pain and hormonal changes we go through first hand. i couldn't make love to my hubby prego. that's just to weird.

  • Ok, that guy that was a woman, but had an operation? Here is what I think. How can he be a man if he has female reproductive organs? He is neither fully a man nor fully a woman, in my book. It was a scientificly altered female giving birth.

  • I really think it is stupid that they call it a pregnant man because she is not a man...she never went through with the surgery...I think it was all for press and headlines. It is just a pregnant woman who happened to take some testosterone and had her boobs cut off.
