There is NO Such Thing as a Pregnant Man!!!

Once again, a kook has been given space on Bilerico to make an absurd assertion. This time, it is a rather bizarre character who calls himself "Dyssonance" when commenting on various blogs, but who posts as "Antonia D'orsay" on Bilerico. Mr. D'orsay has become quite a prolific poster there, making his trademark silliness.

This time around, he takes on the issue of another pregnant "man," in this case one who identifies as gay, and who is in a relationship with another "man." In another words, he is talking about two transgender "men," both born female, one of whom has been impregnated, probably by artificial insemination.

He is, of course, not the only gender fascist to deal with this issue. "Autumn" Sandeen, over at Pam's House Blend had a hissy fit because a couple of disk jockeys made some remarks about this case. Ironically, while the female disk jockey was a bit put off by the idea of a man having a baby, neither pointed out the opposite, that the one having the baby is clearly not a man in any sense of the word. This is simply a woman who has taken testosterone, changed her appearance to look more masculine, who is doing the one thing that unquestionably defines her as a woman.

Men, at least with current technology, cannot have babies. And anyone born physically male who wished to have one for any reason other than to be some sort of freak show for monetary gain is probably not a man either. While I am sure there might be some men who would do it if the money was sufficient, I doubt they would have any desire to actually nurture or raise the baby. The child would simply be a prop, to be passed on after the money is collected.

This whole "pregnant man" silliness, is just another attack on biology by those who wish to reduce sex and gender to something meaningless.

To be a bit more specific, I do not as a rule censor comments made on this blog. But when someone comes in and makes a comment that includes profanity, as well as remarks that could be taken as hate speech against a specific group, then that comment will be removed.
