Thomas Beatie could be the world’s first pregnant man. He is transgender, legally married to his wife Nancy, and now 22 weeks pregant, with the baby due in July. Doctors and people in general have been confused, disgusted, and unsupportive of their efforts to have a child.
I don’t know why I’m surprised, given the average American’s limited capacity for compassion and understanding, but it does make me sad that even medical professionals can’t just do their jobs without bias.
Anyway, I’d like to say congratulations to Thomas and Nancy! I think the idea of pregnant men is pretty awesome. Maybe Thomas will start a trend. (via Towleroad)
