the pregnant man

Okay. Last week, I had tons of people write in to tell me about the pregnant man (who is part Asian). I kid you not. He's six months pregnant, and appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show last week. Granted, he's a transgender man, Thomas Beatie, who was technically born a woman but decided to become a man 10 years ago. He began taking testosterone treatments and had breast surgery to remove glands and flatten his chest... but didn't do anything to his reproductive organs because he wanted to have kids someday. And now, a man is pregnant: Pregnant man tells Oprah: It's a miracle. I think it's mustache that trips people out. More here, with video: Pregnant Man On Oprah: I Have Intercourse With My Wife.

UPDATE: Here's a first-hand, less sensational account of Beatie's story and struggle to get pregnant, in his own words: Labor of Love.
