Another Pregnant Man Goes Public with His Story

See photo HERE.

Scott and Thomas, both transgender men, are expecting an addition to their family. Scott is carrying it, the Daily Mail reports:

"Scott Moore – thought to be only the second ‘pregnant man’ to go public – is due to give birth to a boy in February, with husband Thomas by his side. The couple were both born girls and have undergone surgery to transform their sex. Scott, 30, who is legally married to Thomas because he still has a female birth certificate, says he eagerly looking forward to giving birth. They have decided to call the child ‘Miles’. ‘We know some people will criticise us but we are blissfully happy and not ashamed,’ Scott said. The couple, from California, already have two children - Gregg, 12, and Logan, 10 - who Thomas had with a previous female partner who died."

The NYDN reports: "Moore and Thomas, who are planning a natural birth at their local hospital, are confident that their son will be able to cope with any teasing he might get about his two dads. 'We've been through it already,' Thomas told the paper. 'My son Logan was bullied, but now he just says to teasers: 'You may have a problem with my two dads, but I don't, so you're not hurting me.'"

  1. Yawn == as a man I can 100% tell you this person is not a man.

    This is a pre-op transexual --- if you have not had your guts ripped out ladies preventing you to become preggos --- you are not a man.

    You are a pre-opt transexual -- and thus still a woman. A woman with facial hair, surgically removed breasts and a buzz-cut --- but still a woman who feels like a man.

    Andy should be ashamed for the headline.

  2. Well, he's not exactly Demi Moore, but more power to him!

    It's because of guys like him that guys like me can be gay men, raise our children, and live our lives...

    THANKS

  5. What a cute couple!! The pregnancy must be worrisome though. Will Scott have contractions when the birthing is due? He'll have a c-section, right? What if (in some strange scenario) he can't get to a hospital for more than a few days?

  10. I see Transphobia is alive and well on Towleroad.

  11. Mixed feelings here. I can't help but think this is a little selfish. Sure, we all have things to overcome in life and their kids will be no exception. But to choose to have kids this way I dont think would be my choice (especially if they already have 2 children). And part of me thinks they shouldn't be able to have it both ways (male AND female? Either one or the other). But I wish them all the best.

  12. The level of intolerance, ignorance and bigotry spewed in a couple of these comments has served to assure me that the LGBT community really doesn't have anything up on the conservative right. Apparently the only LGBT people worth accepting and protecting are those that fit the kitschy little suburban gay mold.

    Get over yourselves.

  13. I don't mind if pre-op trans folks want to bear children. To each their own, just as long as they're good parents. But this just further illustrates how very different G/L issues are from T issues.

  14. how would the transgendered parent's hormone treatment affect the foetus's development?

  15. no problems with them having children and think they'll be fine parents.

    but can't they just keep their shirts on?

  16. Lesbians confuse the fuck out of me!!! Ok so they are basically two "woman" who are lesbian in sexual orientation (because they are attracted to woman) yet they change their gender to be men and then be in a gay relationship with another "man" UGH!!! I DONT get it!

    Posted by: J. Bocca | Jan 26, 2010 1:53:49 PM


  17. @J. Bocca: i don't think it's the lesbian angle that's confusing you. i'd say it's the trans one.

    Posted by: tcw | Jan 26, 2010 2:01:23 PM


  18. TCW, yea but trans men who become woman usually date men right? I don't think I've seen a guy become a female and then date a female. What would be the point? I'm not trying to be mean or ignorant it's just sooo confusing.

  19. @J. Bocca:

    No one ever said they were attracted to women. Or that they were lesbians before their transitions. Being trans isn't about which gender you're attracted to. It's about which gender you identify with on the inside. You can be a man inside a woman's body who is always attracted to men. After you change your outsides to match your insides, you're still attracted to men. Or they could be bisexual. There's a whole spectrum of sexuality that really has no bearing upon what gender your brain is vs what gender your body is.

  20. Be definition and scientific fact, men cannot get pregnant. So, it should read "bearded lady gets prego."

  21. Anyone having a baby drop out of their twat is not a man. Real sorry. Furthermore, why do these people feel the need to run to the press as soon as they're knocked up for one of these pictures that will just go in the freakshow section of every newspaper/website (look what these crazy homos are doing now!!)? Go have as many babies as you like ladies, but don't expect all of us in the LGBT community to cheer for you. And narcissists probably don't make the best parents, either.

  22. God, I guess I got lucky with just being GAY then. Haha.

    Posted by: J. Bocca | Jan 26, 2010 2:10:24 PM


  23. which one is the pregnant one?

    Posted by: nic | Jan 26, 2010 2:12:52 PM


  24. I just don't understand the press this kind of situation gets, other than people just wanting to gawk at something "weird." The guy was born with a uterus and a vagina...it's not like some amazing scientific anomaly, he's always had the parts. If he and his partner are serious about raising a child together in a loving home than everyone else should just mind their own damn business. Will this kid get a hard time from others growing up? Probably...his other kids have, but life is hard for a lot of people. WHO CARES? Trans people can parent just as well as anyone one else out there.

  25. @The Milkman: interesting point about the difference between LGB issues and T ones. I note that in the UK, references are made to the "LGB community", minus the T. (To wit: HRC-equivalent Stonewall, the UK's "lesbian, gay and bisexual charity": http://www.stonewall.org.uk/)

    All of which poses the question: how, when and why was the 'T' added to 'LGB' in North America?
