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 ...

Is he kidding? He had a baby--big deal. That does NOT make him famous.

Rob Kardashian is good for Dancing With The Stars, but the rest of the cast..."STUPID". Now they just want to bring a bunch of crazies like Chaz on the show, and they were thinking about bringing the pregnant man on the show. Just stop it already. Bring on real stars, maybe Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, Ellen DeGeneres, Justin Timberlake. Either get some good stars or put an end to the show!.

Maybe the reason he/she's not on is because He's NOT a star. Neither is Bono but, at least his parents are famous and they may get Cher to sing!!

There's a problem here    

So these are men? Could someone explain how the "pregnant man's" testicles produced eggs to be fertilized? Where in his body did this fetus grow, since men don't have a uterus? Obviously his babies weren't delivered through his penis, so was it born by a C-section? Chaz is so large, can he even find his junk? What's that you say? They have vaginas? The pregnant man (not sure about Chaz) has a uterus? THEN THEY ARE WOMEN!!!

That "man" is NOT a man and will never be one, and neither will CHASTITY Bono. "Sex changes" are cosmetic only. Biologically they'll both always be women.

this is why I'm no*****ching DWTS this season. I DO NOT want to listen to the transgender change. He/she is NOT a star only his/her parents. She/he had the change b/c it felt right for her, but I don't want to hear about it. I did watch her journey on OWN & was interested in it, but not on DWTS !! What was ABC thinking?
