Two things made of win today

First, a transgendered man gets pregnant. THIS IS THE MOST AWESOMEST THING EVAR. I'm not sure why he wouldn't have given up everything to be a man, but that's not really the point, is it? I'm thankful for the diversity of life and I celebrate it whenever possible. GO YOU AND YOUR WIFE, YOU PREGNANT DAWG!

Second, caprine is made of raw awesomeness and I lurves her. Hee!

Re: the transgendered pregnant man, that's pretty amazing. I look forward to seeing conservatives' heads explode (beyond the ones that appear, from the article, to have already exploded).

I'm just sorry to see that his brother had such a nasty reaction to the first pregnancy. Yes, ectopic pregnancies are difficult, but to use the word "monster"... that's just cold.

As for why he didn't have his reproductive system removed as part of his transition... I'm sure that was a difficult decision, but it's not my place to argue it. I do wonder, from a strictly academic point of view, how common that is. While I do have a few TG friends, both in real life and online, I've never heard of someone essentially stopping halfway like this man did.

it's actually *very* common in FTM. in MTF, you still end up with working parts; you can reach orgasm, and they look quite *right*. FTM lose a lot of the sensitivity, and sometimes all pleasure from the part. In order to construct the thing, they pretty much take off all the skin from your forearm. And then it doesn't look right, after costing 3x what MTF needs to pay (it can cost up to $200,000, and $50k is the starting point).

And it looks like this:


(you can also see what it does to the forearm there)

The idea of not fully transitioning gets addressed in Michael Tolliver Lives!, last year's Tales of the City book; there's an FTM in there who explains a bit of this. Most of the transgender post-ops I know are also MTF; maybe 15-18 of them. None of the FTMs that I know (only 3) has had constructive surgery down below, though they've had other work done (chest reduction, pect implants, and 2 of the 3 have had hysterectomies)

Indeed, what business is it of mine, and who the fuck cares anyway? I just love the gender/mindfucking going on with them. I want to write and tell them how much I love them for doing what they're doing. :)

that's....weird. Not that it's happening (I mean, have you seen Buck Angel? Completely a butch man, aside from the vagina), but about 3 hours ago, I was reading up on male pregnancies; which is to say, the fake ones (Adam Jones, Lee Mingwei and the ones done for comedy movies (Junior, Rabbit Test).
