    Several years ago I remember seeing a documentary about a transgender male who developed ovarian and cervical cancer and had a difficult time finding doctors to treat him.

    I wonder, if a woman is willing to go through so much physically and emotionally to have a physical manifestation of her/his male identity, why she/he would want to keep her reproductive organs. Unless there are health concerns, it doesn't make sense to me, I would think she/he would want to have them removed.

    Female-to-male transgendered man pregnant

    A transgender man who is six months pregnant said in an interview aired by Oprah Winfrey on Thursday that he always wanted to have a child and considers it a miracle.

    "It's not a male or female desire to have a child. It's a human desire," a thinly bearded Thomas Beatie said. "I have a very stable male identity," he added, saying that pregnancy neither defines him nor makes him feel feminine.

    Beatie, 34, who lives in Oregon, was born a woman but decided to become a man 10 years ago. He began taking testosterone treatments and had breast surgery to remove glands and flatten his chest.

    "I opted not to do anything with my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day," he told the talk show host. Beatie's wife Nancy said she inseminated him with a syringe using sperm purchased from a bank.

    Now, he said, his size 32 jeans are getting a bit tight and his shirts are a bit stretched.

    Nancy, to whom he has been married for five years and who has two grown daughters by a previous marriage, also appeared on the show, saying the couple's roles will not change once the baby is born.

    "He's going to be the father and I'm going to be the mother," she said. Their marriage is legal and he is recognized under state law as a man.

    The couple was shown on video provided by People Magazine, which collaborated with Winfrey on the show, showing the room that will be the baby's nursery. Beatie said the little girl was going to be "daddy's little princess."

    The couple was also filmed in their hometown of Bend, Oregon, where he underwent an ultrasound showing the baby in his womb.

    "I can't believe it. I can't believe she's inside me," Beatie said while watching the ultrasound image. "We see her as our little miracle."

    His obstetrician, Dr. Kimberly James, who practices in the Oregon town, told Winfrey, "This is a normal pregnancy."

    She said Beatie stopped taking testosterone two years ago and his levels of the hormone are normal.

    "This baby is totally healthy," she said. "This is what I consider a normal pregnancy."

    The couple said they had been turned down by a number of other doctors before James agreed to take him as a patient.

    The couple said an earlier attempt at pregnancy failed when he developed a tubal pregnancy, resulting in surgery that removed his Fallopian tubes.

    The couple said they decided to go public with the pregnancy because they wanted to control the way the news got out. "We're just going to have the baby now," Nancy said. "If we have to, we'll go hide."

    The couple runs a small business in Bend and has some savings, she said. In addition, Beatie is working on a book about his childhood, his mother's suicide and his life growing in Hawaii where, as a girl, he was a teen beauty pageant contestant and earned a martial arts black belt.

    Winfrey called the development "a new definition of what diversity means for everybody."

    So, a woman who happens to play the part of a man is pregnant? I guess I don't see why this is newsworthy

    I'm with ya... me and the wifey just had a "discussion" about that... I said that the media needs to stop referring to her as a man... she has female genitalia, female reproductive system, female chromosomes... she's a flat chested female with a beard and a deep voice... hell, sounds like Jamie Lee Curtis to me... oh wait, Jamie Lee has a Y chrosomone... so genetically she is a male...

    see... I don't understand the importance I guess... it's a chick having a baby... my wife did it, millions of women do it on a daily basis... don't get it...

    btw, she really didn't like it when I said "what baby, it's a bearded, flat chested lesbian who's having a baby... what the hell is the big deal" that kinda got her steamed up

    yeah, twisted... but the baby will have a "normal life"... my ass...

    "yeah, my daddy... err mommy... err the one whom i came out of her... err his... vagina... said that I aww fuck it."

    yeah, that's not gonna be a jacked up study on male/female gender roles in society...

    That's what I was wondering.

    Winfrey called the development "a new definition of what diversity means for everybody."
    This is a new definition of degenerate and she's part of it.

    I watched this episode on Oprah yesterday.
    Just have no comment. To each their own. They aren't hurting anybody.....but I worry about that child's mental health when she later learns of this situation.

    What would the kid call it? I guess it could be combined. It can be combined and be called "mad" instead of dad, or "dam" instead of mom.

    Wow, a biological female who has short hair and likes to dress in men's clothing is pregnant?! How can this be?! Silly me, I thought "she" grew a hog and yambag as soon as she put on a pair of boxer briefs.

    Thank you Oprah for enlightening me!!!
    Why no, that's not a pregnant anaconda in my pants...why do you ask?

    Sorry, but I just think that this is disgusting and wrong. Above all, it is SELFISH.

    How much chance does this kid have at a normal upbringing, without fighting ridicule and questions from her peers? You want a child? Fine. You want a sex change? Fine. You want a sex change because you're gender identity is male, but you still want a kid? Shit or get off the pot. You want a kid, have it BEFORE you start growing a fucking beard and getting your tits shrunk. After the pregnancy is carried out normally, do whatever you want.
    "If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970
