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 ...

I for one will not be watching this show! It has gotten so bad over the years. Who wants to watch a bunch of D listers and nobody's dance? They might as well just use the general public. This is NOT Dancing with the "Stars"!

People Chaz is NOT a 'him'. She is a matter what pills she takes or surgeries she has.

PLEASE STOP calling him the "pregnant man". Yes, he lives his life as a man, and that's just dandy, but if you still have a vagina and a uterus, then you're NOT A MAN. You are a woman, living your life as a man. MEN CANNOT HAVE BABIES. I'm so sick of this story. The thing is, if you want to live your life as a man, that's your personal choice, but at least do it 100%. Don't live as a man, remove your boobs, grow a beard, but keep your reproductive organs, get pregnant and then bank on being a "Pregnant Man".

Two crazy women fighting for MORE limelight! How about fighting for a shrink instead? DWTS are exploiting mentally ill women.

Since when did Dancing with the Stars become Dancing with the latest provacative news headliners? That show has veered so off from what the original intent was it isn't even funny! Greg Louganis, a true olympic gold medalist star, has been trying for 4 seasons to get on only to be bumped by a Palin, a Gosselin, and now Nancy Grace? come on! I used to have respect for that show.

Rumor has it that DWTS is about to sign on midget Siamese Twins.

So transgender means pumping a woman with male hormones who then try to grow facial hair?

She's baaaack    

My aunt had breast cancer and had a mastectomy. Then, as a preemptive strike against cancer she had a hysterectomy. She never once thought she was a man. She's more of a woman than most females I know. So,sorry "shemales" but having a mastectomy does not make a man.

I am sorry but as long as you are not sporting a penis, you are not a man. If you can birth a child, you are not a man.
