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 ...

preggo is a doucebag and a huge detriment to the transgender awareness Chaz has championed and worked so hard for. Chaz became a man, preggo is a bearded circus-lady desperate for attention like octomom.

Last I checked Thomas Beatie wasnt a star of any kind....why would he be on DWTS?!?!??!?! At least Chaz is the child of celebrities and the rest of the cast either slept with celebrites or tried to become one by having cameras follow them around to restaurants and clubs.

Thomas is not even part of the galaxy, why would he think he might be considered a star? No wonder he didn't get a call back. He is no celebrity. They want to choose people that were stars at one point in their lives. That's why the show is called Dancing with the stars.

first off I' m tired about hearing about this "pregnant man" bitch you're a woman chosing to live as a man, it's not a phenomenon or a miracle, get over yourself. Chaz wasa a child star whose parents happen to be famous, um the pregnant "woman" chosing to life as a man is nothing to us....

Let's get this straight (no pun intended), neither one of these two is a star, nor has either of them ever been a star. Chaz comes the closest as he was on TV at the end of his parent's show when he was a she. The so-called pregnant man is simply a woman who cut off her boobs. Chaz is also a woman who cut off her boobs. Neither of them will be men until they complete the surgery to turn their vaginas into a penis. Neither is a post-op transexual, both are mid-op transexuals at best!!!

Neither one is my idea of a celebrity, and Chaz Bono really only borrows primary recognition through two famous parents.

I haven't the least interest in the "pregnant man" trying to make a career out of his on again-of****ain transformation. It's not even interesting.

With Chaz, we at least care this goes off well and he is making a good decision.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

The so-called pregnant man is NOT A MAN. She was a woman who wanted a sex change because she felt like a man. So HER appearance is (sort-of) male, but SHE still has female reproductive organs. When people start looking at the facts & take their awe-colored glasses off, they'll see her for what she is: A woman with the appearance of a male.

Really??? The pregnant man is a woman!!! Come on people!! Let's quit giving all of our time and attention to a female who was not liking the way she looked or felt inside and changed her appearance. There is nothing amazing about a female who looks like a guy and then got pregnant. How about we spend our time and efforts to help out starving children??

I am so sick and tired of hearing about the pregnant man. She is not a MAN!! SHE is a woman!!!! There is nothing wonderous and amazing about a female making herself look like a man and then getting pregnant. People spend way too much time on things that are insanely stupid!!!! How about we concentrate on the starving children all over the world instead of someone who was't happy with the way they were born.
