Oprah Interviews Pregnant Man

April 3rd, 2008 // 7 Comments

This is my absolute favorite genre of Oprah show episodes–the “did-you-know-this-shit-is-for-real?” ones that reveal some phenomenon that will have housewives gasping and clutching their pearls. Like how a good chunk of gastric bypass surgery patients are developing substance and gambling abuse problems as they transfer their eating addictions to another form. Or whenever husbands and/or wives reveal that they’re really gay. I love this shit.

This one is probably the craziest one I’ve seen in a while. A transgender man, who used to be a woman, recently came on the show and is now six months pregnant with a baby. Thomas Beatie explained to Oprah that when he underwent his gender transformation, “I opted not to do anything with my reproductive organs because I wanted to have a child one day.”

Beatie and his wife were both on the show and apparently, she actually impregnated him when she inseminated him with a syringe using sperm obtained from a sperm bank. Then, in the second segment of the show, Nate Berkus helped them decorate the baby’s nursery and everyone got high on birth control.

    Wow! I can’t believe this shit either, Lisa! Kind of makes Dolly the sheep seem less weird! We certainly have become a society of freaks…

    Freak!! she is not a man, she is a woman trying to be a man!!!

    Actually, she neither a man, nor transgendered — she’s just a woman who purchased a large amount of cosmetic surgery.

    This is ALL about money. They have a book to sell and a story to sell to magazines like “People”. Our society will do anything for money. Oprah show, what great free advertisement. It is not so amazing, he is a she and that’s what “she’s” do, have babies. They want to get rich at the expense of their own child and that’s very, very sad. She admitted if things get bad they will just hide. Well when your very, very rich you can do that.

    I second Shirley. I don’t see how this is news. I thought it was ACTUALLY a man that’s got preggers.
    Aside from that, what in the duck & chickens is the point of becoming a man if you are still going to give birth? That’s the worse part of womanhood, IMO. Everything else about being a lady is pretty sweet.

    I have just one question how did he became pregenant????????????!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder if the pregnant “man” was a minute-man like my boyfriend Marshal. He is so small, that he admits to it, and warns everyone before hand that he literally only lasts 2 minutes tops!!!

    I personally don’t think you can get pregos if you are a man. You must have been a woman first, unless you did it up the butt.
