He’s Not a ‘Man’ If ‘He’s’ Pregnant, He’s a Woman

Men don’t get pregnant. Women who have had sex change surgery while maintaining their reproductive organs do. But yet again the press is trying to tell us that a ‘man’ is pregnant.

Another man has gotten himself pregnant and is due to give birth next month, the UK’s Daily Mail reports. Scott and his husband, Thomas, were both born female and have undergone surgery to become men. Scott, born Laura, had his 36DDD breasts removed but still has female sex organs as his parents couldn’t afford the full surgery.

So, two women were surgically changed into the external form of males while continuing to be biologically females are ‘married’… And now one of the women, after artificial insemination, is pregnant – though she prefers to be known as a man?

Thomas, born Laura, had a hysterectomy and gender reassignment surgery last year. When Scott got pregnant in June, he said, “We were so happy we did what all gay men do when they get excited — we went shopping.”

Ah well there’s no stereotype there, is there? But, Laura, you’re not gay men, you’re lesbian women.

You can see a photo of the ‘happy couple’ at the link above.  If you dare.

Teen Drinking May Cause Irreversible Damage

That simple fact probably won’t deter the foolish, but perhaps it will at least make them pause for a few seconds before destroying themselves.

A recent study led by neuroscientist Susan Tapert of the University of California, San Diego compared the brain scans of teens who drink heavily with the scans of teens who don’t. Tapert’s team found damaged nerve tissue in the brains of the teens who drank. The researchers believe this damage negatively affects attention span in boys, and girls’ ability to comprehend and interpret visual information.

The moral- stay away from the booze, kids, or your brains will be damaged.

Good For Him

As a top prospect for the Oakland Athletics, outfielder Grant Desme might’ve gotten the call every minor leaguer wants this spring. Instead, he believed he had another, higher calling. Desme announced Friday that he was leaving baseball to enter the priesthood, walking away after a breakout season in which he became MVP of the Arizona Fall League.

Good for him. Especially since he remarks

“I love the game, but I aspire to higher things,” he said. “I know I have no regrets.”

In our sports obsessed society, a gifted athlete who asserts that there’s more to life than a game is both an oddity and a marvel. So, again, good for him.  His decision reminds me of Scott Bailey‘s- a former pro hockey player who gave it up for a career in biblical studies.  I admire such persons.  They turn their backs on wealth and fame and follow a more meaningful path.
