Breaking news about the "pregnant man" - did you see this?

Posted by   + Show Post

Apparently Thomas Beatie had his final gender-reassignment surgery and has now separated from his wife of 9 years, with whom he has three children.

He said, "Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated."

What do you think of this news? Do you even care? :) If anything I guess this shows how normal their relationship was/is - susceptible to the same struggles as any other couple.

Of course she could.

Would he be allowed to join Cafe Mom, if he were interested in joining the group?

There is no such thing as a pregnant man. That's just stupid. She had a uterus which carried a baby (or more than 1?). Just because a woman dresses as a man, does not make her a man. She might be a "man" now because of the surgery, but when pregnant, she was a pregnant WOMAN, which is normal. It's so stupid that her being pregnant was big news to begin with. I wore my husbands clothes at the end of my first pregnancy. This did NOT make me a pregnant man. Geez!

That person was a woman... Not a man. Honestly not surprised they split.

A man cannot have a baby. He was still currently a woman.

For the millionth time, it's NOT a PREGNANT MAN. It's a WOMAN with MENTAL ISSUES who had a baby naturally! MEN do not HAVE uteri and vaginas with which to conceive and bear children, and never will. There's a lot more to having a baby than the mere presence of these organs, also, which anyone who's ever studied reproductive biology IN DEPTH can tell you. The man's body and brain are not built to conceive, carry, and give birth to a child. This is a complete joke.

Sad. It's sad to hear of any couple breaking up.
