Pregnant Man Gave Birth to a Baby Girl

Thomas Beatie, the transgendered "Pregnant Man" has just given birth, ABC reported:

The birth, at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend, Oregon, was natural, according to a source, who added that reports that Beatie had had a Caesarean section are false.

"She's really cute, really pretty,'' the source told ABC News Thursday afternoon.

So... if a homely woman who looks like a man (and there are millions of them all over the world) gives birth nobody bats an eye. But when a woman who's been surgially altered to look like a man gives birth everybody sits up and takes notice..?

Our tabloid culture is out of control.

P.T.Barnum would be proud...

Ugh. This and the "Murder or self defense" thread make me feel like some sort of spectator to my own country.

I've known a few transgendered people. Sure, I sometimes accidentally slip up on the pronouns, but I attempt to respect their wishes. I figure getting the wrong pronoun on a transgendered person would be like people calling me "she" or "her" my whole life, even though I'm male. It would be distracting, saddening and infuriating.

And for the women who see this as some sort of hatred of women (Soran Suleiman, for one), you could not be further from the truth. I'm left-handed. I've always known this; One could say I identify as a left handed person. This doesn't mean I find something wrong with the right hand, or right handed people, it's just something in my brain setting up a random preference to one side or another.

On the other (murder) post, a commenter from Canada said he felt like he was looking at an alien planet. I completely understand his feelings. It's an odd feeling so out of place in my country of birth, and on the 4th of July weekend, too.
