It does kind of make saying "I'm gay" at Christmas dinner seem a little easier,

but I wish the news would STFU already about the "pregnant man", Thomas Beatie. There is nothing new here. The news reports on this like he's going to birth the kid out of his anus.

He -- who was born biologically a female -- kept his reproductive organs when he transitioned. So while he may be "legally male" with a "strong male gender identity", given that he is PREGNANT means he has a eggs and a womb. Frankly, I'm surprised this hasn't happened before.

STFU indeed. It needed to be said.

amen. i keep looking around at the people who are astounded/shocked/amazed/angry about this and thinking - you do realize she's not a man, right? i mean, if Stroll turns up pregnant - then we can gape open-mouthed. but until then? go back to biology class.
