Transgender man/woman pregnant

Whoa this story is bizarre. Just......I don't even know....

Pregnant Man Due in July

A man is reportedly pregnant with a baby girl.

US man Thomas Beatie and his wife were expecting their first child in July, according to US news service TransWorldNews.

Beatie, from the state of Oregon, was born a woman but had a sex change in which he had chest reconstruction and testosterone therapy, but no change to his reproductive organs, TransWorldNews said.

He stopped taking testosterone injections to get pregnant, Beatie reportedly wrote in an article for The Advocate, a magazine for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender readers.

Doctors had refused to treat Beatie, including one that sent him to "the clinic's psychologist to see if we were fit to bring a child into this world and consulted with the ethics board of his hospital" , the article said.

Beatie admitted his situation "sparks legal, political and social unknowns", TransWorldNews said.

Excitingly, there are new articles out today alleging that said male pregnancy could, in fact, be a hoax! Who'd have thunk it?

Squeee! That's both hilarious and very sad.
In this world, its hard to be surprised by anything anymore.

J.Lo refusing to breastfeed her twins? *sigh*
