Judge to Pregnant Man

I Don't Believe You're

REALLY a Guy ... Dude

EXCLUSIVE

0810_thomas_beatie_jensen_tmzAn Arizona judge isn't convinced the Pregnant Man's marriage should be recognized in the Grand Canyon state ... because both man and wife have vaginas ... which might equate to same sex marriage ... which isn't legal in AZ.

The dispute is the latest speed bump in Thomas Beatie's divorce proceedings from wife Nancy ... who Thomas married in Hawaii back in 2003. The two represented themselves as a heterosexual couple because Thomas, a transgender man who was born a woman, had a state authorized change of sex before the wedding. Thomas says he has state-sanctioned legal docs to prove it.

But an AZ judge is calling the whole system into question ... refusing to preside over the divorce until he is convinced that the two were legitimately married in the first place.

In the docs, the judge points to Beatie's womb ... and notes that Thomas gave birth to the couple's three children during the marriage.

The judge then argues that he can find NO legal authority that defines a man as someone who has the ability to give birth to a child.

Therefore, the judge claims, it's possible Beatie's marriage was NOT LEGAL from the start ... and he has no authority to grant the couple a divorce.

The judge gave Beatie an opportunity to defend the marriage ... and Beatie has filed docs doing just that ... pointing to his U.S. passport which designates him as a man as well as his Hawaii birth certificate, which was changed to describe him as a man.

The judge has yet to make a final decision.

I always thought this guy wanted to have it both ways. He wanted to be a man but wanted to give birth to children which men cannot do. Still, many women to men and men to women are legally recognized as their new gender and they still have their original parts downtown. If he is legally a man then he should be legally divorced and pay child support and all that comes with being a man.

Doesn't matter how many operations that are performed on you, any amount of medications you take, or how many doctors you see. You're what you are entering this world and will be that way when you leave this world.

Why claim you're a man if you haven't gotten the sex change yet?

I agree. Either you are a man or a woman; not both. The fact that he gave birth to 3 children proves that he should legally be considered a woman. If he wanted to be a man; why didn't he let his wife carry and give birth to the children? If he wants a divorce then he should get the divorce in Hawaii where they were married and that is where their marriage is considered legal.

Smart Judge.
I don't care how crazy you are. If you're born a female and have kids.. you're a female. Period.
I'm sick of this country catering to crazy people. If you think you have another sex trapped inside you and you feel the need to label yourself that sex and possibly even have surgery to alter your gender.. then you're insane.
It's not a gay or lesbian issue. It's a mental health issue.
