Reactions: Pregnant Man On Oprah

The pregnant man completes the second phase of his media trifecta: he/she appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show Thursday. The first phase is to call a press conference: check.

The third phase involves the book deal and the TV movie.

Then well-deserved obscurity, broken only by appearances as an answer to trivia questions and “Where are they now” stories 10 years later.

Reactions to Thomas Beatie and wife Nancy’s second phase.

An American man who claims he is six months pregnant said it was a “miracle” in his first TV interview. Thomas Beatie, 34, of Bend, Oregon, used to be a woman before undergoing gender reassignment surgery.

He first claimed he was pregnant in an article headlined “Labour of love” in a gay magazine, the Advocate, last month. Many were sceptical, particularly after Beatie said he would not give any interviews until April Fools’ Day.”

“When Thomas Beatie’s wife Nancy was unable to conceive, the Bend, Oregon resident stepped up to the biological plate and the now five months pregnant man is due in July with the couple’s first child.

“Wanting to have a biological child is neither a male nor female desire, but a human desire,” he wrote. “To Nancy, I am her husband carrying our child. I will be my daughter’s father, and Nancy will be her mother. We will be a family.”

Beatie, a female-to-male transexual, decided to keep his/her female reproductive organs even though he was now considered legally male after his female-to-male gender switch ten years ago. He and his wife Nancy moved to the town of Bend, Oregon two years ago where he operated a screen printing business.”

  1. GET REAL THIS IS NOT A MAN MAY LOOK LIKE ONE YES BUT ITS NOT.
    SINCE WHEN IS A MAN ABLE TO HAVE A BABY NEVER. SHE CAN PLAY THAT SHE LOOKS LIKE AND ACTS LIKE ONE, BUT IN REALITY ITS STILL A WOMAN WHO IS ABLE TO HAVE CHILDREN. I REALLY WONDER HOW MUCH OPRAH HAD TO PAY FOR INTERVIEW. THINGS ARE REALLY GETTING TIGHT THESE DAYS FOR EVERYONE THIS WIRED 15 MINUTES OF FAME AS THEY PHARSE IT WAS SICK. IM LOST FOR WORDS TO REALLY DESCRIBE WHAT I HEARD AND SEEN SO FAR

  2. She/He kept his Her parts and is now pregnant! she/he could not have gotten pregnant if she/he would have had them removed. Point. . .you HAVE TO BE A FEMALE (with female organs) to have a baby. PERIOD! No surprise, mystery or otherwise.

  3. Thomas is still a woman, PERIOD! There is no miracle. You have a Uterus, Vagina and Ovaries then you can conceive. She planned this all along and knew she would get this Media attention. Well Played game Thomas…However that sweet baby girl is the one would will have to bear the backlash of this in the future.

  4. The media needs to stop referring to this as the “pregnant man.” The fact of the matter is that Thomas is a woman who made the decision that they felt more comfortable being a man. Human beings need to face it that pregnancy and child birth will always belong to a woman. No man will ever be able to understand what you go through or what it feels like. Biologically, that is how things ended up and that’s how it will probably be till our extinction from this planet.
