I actually think YOU are "disguuuuusting" ivanka, for being intolerant and bigoted. Rather than repeat what she said, I'll just refer to GlowingMoon's post. One can be female biologically and identify as a man. And no, of course I can't say "I identify as a butterfly, therefore I am a butterfly" --- but Gender Identity Disorder is real and in the DSM IV (I think IV).

WOW you guys are so hateful and judgemental it is really disgusting. I'd actually looked back on some of the expecting posts and none of accused Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Garner of being a media whore when they announced their pregnancy. If these children are growing up in a loving environment, then you guys should let them be. I saw the Barbara Walters interview and she showed all the hatemail she recieved. I really couldn't fathom anyone going out their way to be so cruel, but once I read all of these comments I understand. It is really sad. I think I feel sorry for your children more than his because they are going to grow up being just as cruel as you guys are.

Wow, the reaction here is out of control. I lost a lot of respect for the Sugar community from these comments.

I'm in the minority, too. Personally, I don't see this as disgusting. Also, for me, it's easy for me to identify him. BIOLOGICALLY, he's a female. I define biology by his DNA. Clearly, he was XX chromosomes. Just because he had his breasts removed, they're still encoded in his DNA. The blueprint (for breasts, and other female parts) is still there. This is partly why he is capable of being pregnant (a female biological role). He had kept is reproductive, female system. GENDER, he's male. Gender is defined by behavioral and cultural traits. So is he male or female? It depends on the angle. Most of us are consistently female or male in both biology and gender. However, there are some who have a foot on both sides. Again, personally, I don't understand the uproar and confusion over him. In my point of view, this is a no-brainer. JMHO.

How can you identify yourself as a male when you are growing a baby inside of you????

"I know of many flat chested, mothers with a lot of facial hair - does that make them men?! nope." :rotfl: rotfl:

And, skigirl, that Thomas identifies himself as a male. I don't understand (well, I do, but it still disgusts me) all the uproar. Two people love each other and want to bring children into their lives. Much better than a 13 year old crackwhore getting knocked up, no? The media attention is something else, but again, I don't see how it's any different than celebrities whoring out their baby's first pictures to gossip rags.

she (thomas) is no different than a flat woman with facial hair, only she doesn't laser it off or wear a wonderbra that's the only male thing about her

kmattes, You are right in many ways. I think the problem so many of us have with this situation is NOT that He is transgendered. It's not that he's having a child. It's the fact that he's being SO public about it. Our concern (Or at least my concern) is for the children. I think this is going to cause them long term harm. Is it possible I'm wrong? YOU BET, and in fact I sincerely hope that I am. But truly, in the society in which we live today, this man and his family will be ridiculed. Sure Mr. & Mrs. Beattie can probably cope with this. They've gone through therapy, and are prepared for the ridicule that is bound to come their way. But what about the kids? They have no choice in this. If he had done this, and been very quiet about it and just went on his merry way, it wouldn't be so bad. Yes, the kids would still have to deal with ridicule, but not on this grand of a scale. As it is now, the entire world is going to know. It's hard enough for kids growing up with what are considered 'normal' issues (shyness, sensitivity etc) but to add something like this to the mix could have some very long term negative effects.

just because we express our thoughts using CAPS and exclamation marks doesnt mean that we're losing sleep over this at all. Its just very misleading when people refer to this woman as a man. She is not a man!!!!! She's just a hairy pregnant woman. I know of many flat chested, mothers with a lot of facial hair - does that make them men?! nope. Some mornings when I wake up I feel like a man....does that mean I'm a man for a day? nuh-uh. Im not an ignorant person. I know the difference between a man and a woman. I just a little offended by the title "Pregnant Man" - men cant give birth. Thats just the way it is.

and this also comes from a state we they just elected a crossdresser for a mayor in one of the small towns...:rotfl:... who cares if he/she is a sheman or heman....they are going to have a beautiful family and everyone deserves a chance at that.

Skigurl: Ahem, my name is Susan, and I am not a mother. (I'm 20). Though, no offense taken, I never had to share my name with anyone though in school, I've always been the only Susan in my class. It is a 70's name. My Dad was determined to name a girl Susan, even if it took my parents until they were 40 to have a girl to name Susan. But, on topic. I agree with others. Thomas is a woman with a male appearance. He has female innards.

I understand where you're coming from KMattes but when you stand there and tell the whole world your a man and go and get pregnant (twice), something only a woman would do, is very hypocritical! She's a man why? Her name is Thomas, she has a beard, walks like one, and dresses like one, and then gets pregnant. I don't think its disgusting because its just a another woman having a baby...but what I think is sick is that this woman is going around telling people she's a man when in reality..she isn't. Go have your operation and take all your womanly parts out of there and maybe just maybe people will start giving you respect! I've seen many transgendered people and not one of them have ever done something like this! I can't say it enough...very hypocritical!

In the transgender community--or respectful society in general--it is respectful and customary to use the pronoun of which gender the individual lives. If you'd like to learn more about transgendered people and Gender Identity Disorder, see the Barbara Walters' special about transgendered kids, "My Secret Self". All 5 parts are available on YouTube. Also, perhaps the reason Thomas and HIS wife are having another child so quickly is because they want to complete their family as quickly as possible so HE can go back on HIS hormone treatments and complete HIS transformation and get on with his life. I wish the entire family all the best.

People please sto calling this woman a man gives birth!!It anoys me because this woman decided to mock God and say God I don't like the way u made me and therefore decided to change what God created. I love gays and lesbians but I hate it when they go to the extreme of changing how God created them. And he/she got pregnan because SHE IS A WOMAN NOT A MAN!!!thank u!!!mercie beaucoup!!

"If the media were honest, they'd report it as "Woman Identifying as Male Give Birth"." YES! I am so tired of it being presented as this medical marvel and miraculous birth.
runningesq runningesq 8 years
This person identifies himself as male. Gender can be complicated and is not the same thing as sex. I agree they are seeking the attention, but I also don't see how it's different than any other celebrity selling pictures of their babyes for $$$ to US Weekly and In Touch. To each his AND her own.
