Thomas Beatie gives birth to healthy baby daughter

beatie3

Thomas Beatie, the pregnant man who had everyone chattering about his challenge to their notions of gender fixedness, has given birth to a healthy daughter.

Thomas, a transman, decided to become pregnant by artificial insemination. His wife Nancy was unable to carry a pregnancy because she had had a hysterectomy in the past. You can see a bit of his interview with Oprah here on Youtube.

Congratulations to Thomas and Nancy – enjoy your babymoon!

  1. I think this may be one of the best examples ever of having it both ways

  2. I got to the line “The thinly-bearded Thomas Beatie” and had to go have a rant to my SO about the absolutely exasperating hilarity of the insinuation that a “real” man is defined by the bushiness of his facial hair. Because it’s not like I know easily half a dozen “real” guys who don’t shave for a week and merely end up looking slightly fuzzy.
