Oregon "Man" Claims He Is Pregnant

An Oregon man who claims he is pregnant sparked skepticism from those who live around him.

In a first-person article for April's Advocate magazine, Thomas Beatie says he is five months pregnant.

In the article, Beatie says he used to be a woman. He says he had breast reduction surgery and took hormones to become a man, but he says he kept his female reproductive organs.

Now Beatie claims he is expecting a little girl.

Neighbors of Beatie and his wife, Nancy, say they haven't noticed any baby bump. They did notice a television crew following them around, but they haven't seen him for days.

People who work next door to Beatie's t-shirt shop greeted the news with laughter.

Beatie told a Portland, Oregon television station that he was unable to comment on his situation for a week and a half.

The Advocate, based in Los Angeles, California, is a magazine focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.

As a foot note, there has been no confirmation that Beatie is pregnant and next week is April 1st.

    Well obviously he is not a "Man" so it cant be a story of a man that got pregnant.

    This is crazy.People don't know what to do anymore, so they do stupid things like this. This is NOT a mistake! People just go out thier mind to think of something to do to them selves.

    if you were born a woman then you'll always be a woman. just cause you have numerous surgeries doesnt make you a man.

    All of your sick prejudiced remarks make me sick. You sit there and talk endlessly about your 'God' and how obviously you're so perfectly Christian and a freaking saint because you can talk so much crap about bi/homosexuality. Well guess what, people, if truth be told you're all a bunch of hypocrites. Doesn't your bible specifically tell you NOT to judge people?! If so, then who are you to criticise? You talk about how the child will be teased in school, and talked about - Well aren't you all the ones teasing and talking before the kid is even born? Shut your mouths, and the child will grow up perfectly fine. Before you start pointing fingers, make sure your own hands are clean.

    what a person does should be their own right. but to wash their laundry in the public eye is wrong.. I am a intersexed female born both genders.. I am not giving my name or who I am but, I know that the genetics between male and female is very close. and those who says god this and god that, well wake up!!! its their life they have to answer to this so called god...and how can god allow for mistakes? well think about it I am no mistake and I am very happy for them if that is what they desire..
