Pregnant Man

Chaz Bono Hurt My Chances

For 'Dancing with the Stars'

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 ...

Thomas was not and never was a pregnant man. Men do not have a uteros, therefore they can NOT be pregnant. The fact that this person kept their FEMALE body parts should be a clue.

Stop feeding this nutcases need for attention!

first off, it's not a "he," it's a "she." Chromosomes cannot lie as to what you were born as. Otherwise, the pregnant "man" is a woman with women's internal organs. duh

I'm a female to male transgender person, I have to agree about the one who had a baby. I remember when that came out it really took me back. I dont believe that is a female to male transgender person, some people will do anything for money or attention. All this other hate talk, I truely feel bad for your kids.

Not being a hater, just the truth. If you have a vagina, you are not a MAN. Get over the "pregnant MAN" title. You cannot be a MAN and become pregnant, because you must have a womb. This is a woman that has had HER breasts removed. Like Chaz Bono, not a man... The "Vagina" is your first clue...

I am a biological woman and have always felt totally comfortable as such. Even though I would be considered an educated person, I admit I don't really understand how transgendered people feel. I don't see how people can presume to judge a transgendered person when how transgenders say they feel is so outside the realm of experience of a "typical" person. Until you have walked in someone's shoes . . .
