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 ...

Cutting your breasts off and growing facial hair does not make you a man. It makes you a hairy woman without breasts

Why is this a story??? This is NOT A MAN. This is a very confused, unhappy, mentally unstable woman seeking attention. She's famous for giving birth??? REALLY Since when did giving birth make anyone famous.... Just because you wanted to be a man doesn't mean you are one. You are exactly who God created you to be. A woman. You can hide behind a facade all you want to but the REALITY is. You are who you are...embrace it!

Bono and this other "pregnant Man" are both disgusting . No they are not men and never will be. i can't even look at them. My kids will never watch Dancing with stars, as long as stupid Bono or people who are like him are on the show.

Lets all get one thing straight...You can call yourself a man when you get a penis. For anymore to have their birth certifictes changed from woman to man and still have no penis then we have a problem. since most people say a marriage is between a man a woman then explain how people like chaz can get married if "he watns" when really he is still really a woman bc he can have kids but no penis??????

Since the pregnant "man" is actually a woman, isn't it considered obscene to put her topless picture up everywhere?

yeah, you're not a star, just a freak. And your not a man who had a baby. You're a woman who like to take hormones.

I still maintain that that pregnant one should not be shown topless.

What was he famous for? He got turned down because he's not a 'star' and thus should not be on 'dancing with the STARS'

DWTS promised A-List stars. All I've seen is B-List at best. Some I would say are even lower than that. George Clooney's ex-girlfriend? Give me a break. She's not a "star." Thomas Beattie...even less of a star, in fact, not a star at all! Go away all you has-beens and wannabes!!

Dude, you disgust America. There isn't a shot in hell you would be on DWTS. Chaz Bono I can see, but you're milking sexual reassignment surgery for all you can. That is sick.

I bet countries like Iran pipe this kind of crap in to their network, and say, "You really wanna be like these western freaks?"
