Pregnant Man

Chaz Bono Hurt My Chances

For 'Dancing with the Stars'

8/31/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Pregnant Man -- Thomas Beatie -- claims he SHOULD HAVE been chosen to compete on "Dancing with the Stars" this season ... but says, "Chaz Bono stole my thunder."

Beatie tells TMZ ... he reached out to casting in the hopes of landing a spot a few months ago -- but never got a call back. But after DWTS announced that Chaz would be on the show, Thomas says he thinks he knows why he was rejected -- the transgender quota had already been filled.

Thomas says he understands why producers wouldn't cast two famous transgender people on the show -- but he's still pretty bummed out ... telling us, "I wanted to try my new body out. I’m an athlete and I know I would have excelled."

There's always next season ...

since when is the "pregnant man" a star? Then again, since when is Chaz Bono a star? Chaz trumps because at least he's RELATED to stars! People need to get over themselves. The pregnant man needs to be worried about raising his baby, explaining to his child why his dad has a vagina, and helping the kid have as normal a life as possible! He shouldn't be worried about dancing on a TV show. On the other hand...i guess it would have been kinda good for ratings, and would have helped pay for the kid's college. Id rather see the pregnant man than fat azz Chaz Bono. At least the pregnant man looks half way decent.

sidebar: why do I keep calling him the pregnant man? Im sure he's had that baby by now lol.

Chaz isnt a man, its a surgically altered woman with severe mental problems. How is Chaz even classified as a Star? That thing is only famous because its parents were actual stars in the entertainement biz.

Thomas is not a celebrity. Chaz has been a celebrity since birth because of who his/her parents are. Be serious and get a life.

Keep your vagina and cut your breasts off.

Since Thomas Beatie has never actually had the sex-change surgery, the more accurate billing for Beatie would be "the Bearded Lady."
Are they still hiring bearded ladies at the fair?

This is not a pregnant man. Stop referring to this partial transgender person as a man. She still has her girl parts. Obviously. She just has a beard and no tits, just like my aunt Bridget.

Why are people still interested in Thomas?

She is still a woman BIOLOGICALLY who is taking male hormones.

That's it.

The transphobic messages on this board are disgusting, if you people had any maturity at all you would realize it isn't okay to judge someone in such a way, transgender people have a 41% of attempting suicide. Show a little compassion, Chaz is a good guy, trans men are real men, and its obvious your intelligence level if you think only biological males are real men.

@kelsey : Trans men are NOT real men. Who told you that they were?. You're obviously not very well educated and should do a little more reading about what a man or woman is. You cant just cut off a couple parts and shoot some hormones and voila, you changed your sex.

@kelsey.......really? Well I always wanted to be a Unicorn so from here on out I expect to be considered a "REAL Unicorn" I mean after all I do have a zit on my forehead so I am now Officially a Unicorn. I need to get to L.A. and get that "Official" paperwork done.
(stupid people - transgendered people are freaks - wake up dummy)

DWTS stands for Dancing with the STARS!!! Stars, get it? Chaz Bono is not a STAR! He can live how he likes, no problem, but he does not belong on a show for STARS!!!

Not going to go down the female-male-transgender judgment road here. For me at this point, to each his/her/its own. Tom and Chaz disgust with their constant attempts to extend their 15 minutes.....and DWTS disgust with their enabling and boundary pushing for a simple ratings grab.

DWTS Had the number 1 show on tv. With this years cast it looks like you screwed the pooch.
