This one’s sure to fuck with the social conservatives.
A totally awesome trans man named Thomas Beatie successfully conceived a child, which he’ll raise with his wife, Nancy. Though certainly an incredible turn of events, not everyone’s reactions are encouraging:
Doctors have discriminated against us, turning us away due to their religious beliefs. Health care professionals have refused to call me by a male pronoun or recognize Nancy as my wife. Receptionists have laughed at us. Friends and family have been unsupportive; most of Nancy’s family doesn’t even know I’m transgender.
Well, those who don’t sure will now.
