Yesterday I was trying to keep abreast of the happenings in the world. The article of interest was “Did Big Tobacco Taint a Cancer Study”…long story short, a researcher whose finding were published in the New England Journal of Medicine, was sponsored by a big tobacco company – hence, a conflict of interest. Anyhow, the article was dry and I was beginning to lose interest when my eyes drifted to the quote of the day on TIME.com that got me upset. The quote read;  

 “Doctors have discriminated against us, turning us away due to their religious beliefs.” 

What is my beef? The quote was by Thomas Beatie a married American man who used to be a woman before gender reassignment surgery, on the difficulty of securing care during his PREGNANCY (see picture above)!  

I consider myself a very open person but this is way beyond me…thoughts???

    I second the “beyond me comment”… I am not a big fan of people using the word “discriminate” inappropriately… How can one phathom such madness? If you want to change to a man.. please do so in entirety not partially! There is a reason why God keeps sending the same message to human beings ” stop complicating your lives.” Such madness!!!!

    This is wayyy beyond us all! The victim in all of this is the child that wld be brought into this world in such a state of confusion. If this child grows up and kills its parent(s), the murder shld be deemed justifiable homicide!

    this is just ridiculous..this guy/woman is def schizo…why dont u just choose; its either you a man, or a woman..cant decide you want to be a pregnant MAN..like Ronke said, i pity the child..come to think of it, the individual is confused in so many ways; is she/he homosexual? why go thru all that stress just to be sleeping with a man. ok let me not act/talk ignorant, i know you really dont need a man to concieve but which man really wishes to be pregnant? please choose one and stop complicating/disrupting the normal way of life.

    its pple like this that will make God come sooner than planned..abeg check your self into a “psycho” home cuz i still need some time before God come

    when one is ill, they go see a doctor, when you want to build a house, you see an architect, when you change your sex from woman to man then get pregnant, you go see a PSYCHIATRIST…KNOW THE DIFFERENCE and stop blaming doctors

    S/he should sue the surgeon that did the gender reassignment surgery. Obviously, something went wrong.
