So I was working on my laptop the other day, not paying any particular attention to what was on the television, until I thought I imagined a voice saying, “My husband is pregnant with my baby…” Naturally, that got my attention.
It turned out I had not imagined it. The voice really did say that her husband was pregnant with her baby. The only thing is that the voice belonged to a male. So it was a male then who said, “My husband is pregnant with my baby…” Wait, huh??? You’re probably as confused as I was when I was watching it. Let’s start from the beginning. Assume that the person who said, “My husband is pregnant with my baby…” is a female – the wife. Yes, I know I’m confusing you, but let’s take it from there:
- The female and wife [who said her husband was pregnant] used to be a male, but had been transitioning into a female for the past ten years – hence the female-looking parts and gender role switch.
- The male and husband [who was pregnant] used to be a female, but had been transitioning into a male for the past two and half years – hence the male-looking parts and gender role switch.
- Sooo… the husband in this household actually used to be a woman. And the wife in this household used to be a man. Are you with me thus far? Good.
How then did the husband [who used to be a woman] end up being pregnant??? Well, easy. The woman [who used to be a man] mistakenly got him [her?] pregnant. I say mistakenly because they didn’t know it was possible – considering how much hormones they have consumed. The pregnant husband didn’t even know that he [she?] was pregnant until seven months into the pregnancy. He just thought he was gaining weight. The couple plans on breast-feeding the baby. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? WHOSE BREASTS??? …. and CAN I WATCH???
I cannot pretend that I understand what it means to be transgendered. From what I have heard and read, I am grateful that I have never had to, do not now, and by God’s grace, will not ever have to be confronted with the dilemma of deciding what sex I want to be. I can say, however, that in all things, God must truly take all the Glory. This couple has done almost everything to not be what God made them. I have no right to judge, of course. But it’s very interesting that in spite of this, God has made the man do what men do to women when they enter them: get them pregnant. So Who gets the Glory?
This must be God’s way of reminding everyone that He is God – the Alpha and the Omega. The Beginning and the End. He that openeth and no one shuteth; He that shuteth, and no one openeth – literally. I’ve always known that God has an incredible sense of humor. This is just another living proof.
P.S. The husband is now in labor. You should hear him. He sounds just like a woman. I never thought I’d see the day that a man would have labor contractions, breathe through pursed lips, be dilated, push a baby out, and scream ‘Oh, God!’ the entire time. Oh, that’s right. She isn’t a man. But don’t tell her I said so.
