He shows off his bulging belly for the first time.

The world's first pregnant man is pregnant again ... with baby number three!

Who can forget the day Oregon native Thomas Beatie, a transgender living as a man, and his wife welcomed baby girl Susan (June 29, 2008)? Or the day Beatie gave birth to his second child, a boy (June 9, 2009)?

Now, in keeping with his one-kid-per-year tradition, Beatie is pregnant with his third child and is proudly showing off his baby bump.

This liberal mindset is sickening and is getting to be enough. She is a she. She has reproductive parts, ovaries, uterus, etc. She is a woman. Unfortunately, she and her partner are only thinking of themselves NOT THEIR CHILDREN, who will be messed up psychologically when they grow up. I have nephews/nieces whose father was “transgendered” and eventually changed to the exclusion that it was all for him and if they did not like it too bad. These kids have so much baggage now it’s not funny but “DAD” does not think it’s his problem. He did what he wanted and totally disregarded the psychological effects his “Sexuality” had on his children. These people are totally selfish.

What the HE_ _ PEOPLE GET A LIFE HERE!!!! This is a woman that has had a change to make money!!! That’s all!!! AND “”SHE”“, IS A “”WOMAN!!!!”” Plain and simple!! That’s “”how”” she had the baby!! She has a vagina!!! DUH!!!!

Could somebody get these narrow minded idiots an education?? What this man has is a condition called Gender Identity Disorder. He was born biologically female but was always mentally a guy. So he underwent treatments to become more masculine. And now he’s having babies because his wife can’t. HE is most definitely a MAN.

i seem to get confused every time i read about them- he, she, they? in the end- it’s none of our business and they need to stop trying to make it our business. If they are trying to live like a conventional couple, they need to stop calling the presses every time they get pregnant. I have three kids and never got one bit of press!

Even though he is a transgendered man, he should still know that it isn’t safe to get pregnant less thatn 18 months after the birth of the 1st child. He is going to ruin his body and cause his femle hormones to go crazy. Use your brain.

He is a SHE. So what, she has facial hair and cut off her breasts? She still has female organs. Big deal she’s pregnant!

I wish people would stop referring to this person as a pregnant man. He chose to keep his reproductive organs so this person chose to stay a woman.

This is ridiculous. This is NOT a man. This is a woman and God made women to carry babies. You can’t put webbed feet and feathers on a rabbit and call it a duck. Sorry, it just doesn’t work that way. You are and always will be what God made you as and what God intended you to be no matter how much surgery you undergo and medications you take.

Melissa February 18, 2010, 3:43 AM

PS: She still has the features of a woman. That mustache doesn’t hide a thing.

sure “he” has the reproductive organs of a woman but chooses to be a man because that’s what he’s always felt to be and became a man legally.
He chose to keep his womanly organs to have children with his wife because she cannot have babies.
If they are happy with the way things are and the kids are well cared for then who cares what “he” has inside?

I don’t know why ‘he’ still calls himsf a man maybe living as a man but he is still a woman in every single letter of the word.

maybe she really is a man in her brain but if he is having kids with his female reproductive organs he is still a she. if he really is a man than why is he having kids like a woman? if he can get married to a woman than gay people have the right to be married.

He is a man. As said in posts before, gender is determined by the brain, not the biological gender assigned by the doctor at birth. Though Thomas may not be the worlds first transgendered male to give birth, he should still be recognized as a loving male partner who is willing and able to create a family with his wife. I can only imagine how hard it must be to go against your gender identity as a man and have three pregnancies in order to have a beautiful family, like many men and women want.
In addition, this is truly amazing as his previous testosterone use could have made this impossible. Though I don’t necessarily agree with all of the media attention they have drawn towards themselves, I respect and admire the hard decisions and sacrifices they have made to make their family.
I wish people could leave their gender confusion out of it, and just see that this is a normal husband and wife creating their family, like millions of couples.

Women/Men = Gender
Gender is how a person identifies themselves.

This person is a “he” and should not be disrepected and called a “she.”

However, if this person is capable and willing to give birth, that means they are female bodied.

Female/Male = Sex

Which sex you are born with is not your choice.

Therefore, although the “attention whoreness” of the article’s title and subject matter is a bit much, I would view this as a man making the best of what nature handed him at birth, aka a female body which he doesn’t identify with but has been imprissoned in for years.

Can you blame a man for wanting his own kid? Sure he has a female body and this isn’t remarkable in that way, but give him a break.

gender is a social construct — Only.
They’re calling him a man not a “male.”
Two very different concepts.

He lives as a man, therefore society recognized him as a man. Biology recognizes him as biologically female.

Hello! dkkgfgd interesting dkkgfgd site!

People get a grip. This is a woman. God created two genders. MALE, FEMALE. Women have childreN. Men DON’T. Just because you have somehting removed. This does not make you a Man. As for Gender is determined by the brain. No Gernder is determined by God. This transgender stuff. Bull. I believe these people do this just to get attention. I guess they feal they didn’t get enough attention growing up. I can get all the hate responses everyone wants to send. Won’t change my mind. No wonder the world is so messed up. With this kind of garbage making “News”. I’m just glad I don’t have anyting like that around me.

If I see another person SPEAK FOR GOD, I’m going to scream. Stop insulting the almighty with your narrow-minded, sanctimonious garbage. It’s evil. Like Satan evil. Yes, —->YOU

Did you realize some naturally birthed-by-God WOMEN are born with TESTICLES where their ovaries should be and DO NOT HAVE A UTERUS? Are they men? Are they male? Does it matter that they have XY chromosomes? Look it up… it’s true. One of thousands of examples of how PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT.

Let’s stop quibbling over what “Man” and “Woman” mean. They are just words. Words that encompass a HUGE range of physical traits, behaviors, appearances, socializations, gestures, and so on. ALL of these things = GENDER. It ain’t just man or woman, folks. It’s “all”. As in “GOD-ALL”… all of us equal.

So let’s stick with the really, really, really simple, honest, plain, 100% truth:

Thomas is a MAN by society’s standards.

HE will use the MEN’S restroom.

HE will play on MEN’S sports teams.

HE will wear GUY’S clothing.

HE is also PARTLY FEMALE. Not a “woman”, just a dude with some female-parts. Big difference. Try to see the forest for the trees, huh?

If a guy with a uterus wants to have kids and will be a good father… I say go for it. Better him than a crappy dad without one.

i saw a million comments about this case with the pregnant man. you call yourself a free democratic country and you can’t accept the fact the an individual gave birth to another individual? and you accuse that brave man of being a m——-r. and because of what? because you consider yourselves Christians? you accept a baby being born out of a virgin woman but not out of a man? you say God would not allow this. Well He did. there are woman crying to have their own baby and they can’t. I know a million couple desiring to have their own baby but they can’t. I think The Bates family was blessed. I congratulate them and I wish you stop being so narrow minded. It’s 2010. The bible said Believe don’t search answers (200 years ago) and people got on the moon. Let’s blame NASA for that. Wake up. it has bee scientifically demonstrate that there are men born with female brain. This is the way things are. Accept it and get over it. It is perfectly normal. giving birth to a child is a beautiful thing. Going to war in the name of God is inadmissible . I’m a Christian to and if Jesus thought me something ,that is that you should not judge no one under no circumstances.
