With the sensational headline, Transgender Man Gives Birth to Non-Binary Partner’s Baby with Female Sperm Donor, the UK Mirror acted as though something novel happened. In reality, the story is that a woman with self-induced hormonal problems gave birth as a surrogate to a baby conceived by her lesbian lover and male sperm donor.
Is it news?
“Proud dad Reuben Sharpe today tells how HE gave birth to a miracle baby in Britain’s most modern family,” the Mirror writes. “The 39-year-old transitioned to a man 12 years ago. But he still had maternal instincts and six years ago stopped taking testosterone in the hope of one day having a child.”
The Mirror continues, “And that dream came true when he and partner Jay had a bouncing baby. Jay is non-binary – so does not identify as male or female. The sperm donor was a trans woman… and even the DOCTOR was transgender.”
Of course, men don’t have wombs and women don’t have sperm. In fact, the reality that the woman has a womb should clarify she is, in fact a woman. And the fact the man has sperm should, in fact, clarify he’s a man.
What happened to sex education in the public school system? Has it failed us that poorly?
If a woman has a beard, but still has an womb, ovaries, and not least of all, XX chromosomes, that’s a woman.
An ugly woman giving birth is not news. It literally happens all the time. The Mirror’s reporting is fake news.
Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
