Thomas Beatie, the transgender “pregnant man” who gave birth to a daughter in June, is pregnant again.
In an interview with Barbara Walters, Beatie, 34, reveals that he is in his first trimester.
“I feel good,” said Beatie, who is due June 12. “I had my checkups with my hormone level, as far as the HCG. And everything is right on track.”
I really don’t understand why he keeps being called a man? Isn’t he/she essentially still a woman if he/she still has a woman’s reproductive organs? Maybe I’m ignorant. Anyone care to explain?
If Beatie had such an urge to become a mother then why didn’t he just stay a woman till after he had children? Then he could have kept his breasts and maybe breast fed the child? I don’t know, to each their own.
I hope I am wrong but I feel like they keep doing this just for publicity.
