Transgender Man Upset to be Listed as the Mother of the Child 'He' Birthed
The left loves science. Their favorite science of all the sciences revolves around how babies are made. But remember, they're only actual babies if the one carrying the baby believes that which she is carrying is a baby. Otherwise, pregnancy is just clumps of tissue which can be hocked at an auction to the highest bidder. Traditionally in reproductive science, a mother gets pregnant with help from the father's swimmers. This unfair assigning of gender roles, however, is oppressive to ladies believing themselves to be a gentleman. So is the case of Freddy over in the United Kingdom, who though giving birth to a child, wants not to be listed as the mother but the father. Even though Freddy has a uterus, a vagina, and compelling need to overanalyze every social interaction carried out each day.
Freddy McConnell, 32, was legally recognised as a man and had been living as a male for years when he gave birth in 2018.
Currently the person to carry and deliver a child is always registered as the child's mother, even in cases of surrogacy.
Mr McConnell, a journalist who works for The Guardian, wants to be registered as father or parent.
Allow me to end this nail-biting suspense. Freddy is a lady. Freddy was born a lady. Freddy was conceived as a lady. Freddy will die a lady. Freddy may change her name to whatever Freddy likes. Freddy can don whatever kinds of clothing Freddy likes. Freddy can shoot herself up with hormones to make Freddy grow luscious face locks and to bequeath her voice with a shivering timbre if she likes. But Freddy will always be female whether Freddy likes it or not.
For now, Freddy has lost her case to be listed as the father of her child when she's the mother of her child. Freddy tried desperately to prove being listed as "mother" is somehow a violation of her human rights to her and her child. Despite this birthing process having successfully been executed billions of times over millennia. To Freddy, what comes naturally to human beings, rabbits, dogs, horses, cats, rats, possums, and aquatic mammals is somehow problematic.
In fairness to Freddy, she used IVF, which is an unnatural way to get pregnant in that the fun part has been removed. But the science is still rather the same. One egg. One sperm. One meet-cute. One baby.
"As a trans person, if you have to start accessing services - whether its adoption or surrogacy - that's almost scarier for me because you don't know who's going to judge you, who's going to gate-keep, who's going to exclude you."
So in 2016 he paused taking testosterone and waited for his monthly cycle to return before undergoing IVF treatment using a sperm donor.
And got pregnant. Because eggs and sperm go together like peanut butter and jelly on toast.
The problem is obviously not the getting jiggy with it process which has been enacted since the dawn of human time. The problem is Freddy wanting all of nature to bow to her current whims because of how she feels. This makes Freddy not only a delusional tripe-licker but a selfish, egotistical shite.

Bonus shot, Freddy's story of being a woman who's given birth to a child (since you know) has been made into a documentary. Here's a trailer for that documentary. I'm sure you're just all kinds of confused as to how a person with a uterus and vagina gave birth.
Solution for Freddy: just say the birth certificate identifies as the mother, making Freddy the father. Why can't transgender men and ladies take their awesome powers of "it identifies as something else" and apply it elsewhere? Why must everyone else concede?
