OMG, RL follows fiction

I can't believe it - an actual case of RL MPREG!!  

Actually he's a former she and kept the critical equipment.  No one's asking if he's going to nurse.
I think it's great, but lordy help us, I feel an attack of Kinks lyrics coming on:

"Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls.
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world,
except for Lola."

Shades of Wraeththu!

OK, I must be hormonal, but I found this touching. That picture was moving. Gods! When did I turn into such an emotional thing? I'm so glad to see that they were able to conceive and have a child together, but was incredibly disappointed in the medical profession. :(

Ain't technology grand?

Thanks for the info!

The technology to have a sex change operation is what I find amazing and that's been going on for years, so I guess this was a matter of time. Yeah, the medical profession was pretty judgmental. Humans are a jumpy lot. We don't like the unexpected. I'm afraid with a worldwide story like this one, that poor couple will be getting way more than their share of nastiness.

There were two women behind me in line at the grocery store that were quite vocal about how gross it was. I was two seconds from asking them if they had considered removing the sizable sticks from their asses. ugh.

Well perhaps it's crossing the line into the last firm demarcation between the sexes that has people freaked. It's also a curiosity. I mean I had to find out how it was possible myself. *g* I think our community, having been exposed to mpreg and Wraeththu and other fiction that blends the lines between sexes is probably more open to such things and less shocked than we might be otherwise.

Nothing should surprise me anymore.

Aprils' fool gay variety?

Nope, apparently it's for real. Saw something on the news about it last night. They did a sonogram and sure enough - baby.

kinda freaky.. amusing if you don't think about it being real. How is he going to give birth O.o

Well, I gather he kept all his female parts so I imagine the baby will come in the usual way.
