Is it just me or do others find the latest “stupid trannie trick”, the one being pulled by transmen as having fully used up its 15 minutes in the spotlight and then some?
You know the one I’m talking about…
Man to give birth to twins.
As Bill Maher would say, “New Rules!”
If you take male hormones, grow a beard, have a mastectomy then go off hormones and get pregnant you aren’t a man. The first one who did it, Patrick Claifia’s lover… Okay.. That was a cool party trick and good for a front page on the Advocate.
Maybe even the second one. But at this point doing the “pregnant man” trick seems to be becoming a F to M status symbol.
Enough already. There are already about 3 billion too many people on the planet and your DNA isn’t that special. In fact considering what you did to get the beard you may well have increased the odds of having a kid with some sort of serious birth defect. Doing stuff that risks having kids with serious birth defects just isn’t cool.
Besides which you make transsexuals look mentally ill at a time when we are trying to get rid of the stigma of GID.
Maybe it is time for Janice Raymond to write a sequel regarding F to Ms.
So the new rule is this. If you are an F to M and want to be a mommie and carry a baby do it before transition.

I have a great deal of empathy for the FtM transsexual. The resulting surgery currently avilable does not provide a good result and the surgery that is available traumatic. I well understand that he may well elect to go so far and no further. But all this pregnant man bullshit makes me feel as sick as I do when the MtF keeps his Dick and still fathers a child. Frankly there is no ethical or moral difference between the two.
I simply do not buy into the “I did it for the love of my partner who cannot have babies” argument. You do it for the notoriety buster and that’s the bottom line.
