We often hear the phrase, “Our founders wouldn’t recognize this country.” I’ll go further and say my Year 2000 self doesn’t recognize this country.
Stephan and Wyley met on a gay dating app, and they live in a converted bus in their friend’s backyard in San Antonio.
The bio of his Grindr account said something like, ‘Country boy, loves the wild, loves animals, vegan’ and then like picture of a tree,” Stephan said of Wyley.
All of the above is enough to open a few eyebrows — but the kicker is that Wyley is pregnant, according to an upcoming “Extreme Love” episode about the couple.
Stubborn biology strikes again
You might be asking yourself how this happened.
Thing is that while Wyley identifies as a transgender male and sports a beard, deeper voice, and a chest without breasts, Wyley — who was born female — still possesses a pesky vagina.
Ergo, a pregnancy that “definitely was not planned,” Wyley said, adding that “I am a man, and I am actually pregnant.”
Stephan, however, knew about Wyley’s biology “right off the bat” — but still there was the question for Wyley, “Can you get pregnant?”
They assumed the answer was no due to what Wyley was told by doctors amid all the testosterone treatments.
“But that wasn’t truth,” Stephan remarked.
You know the world is upside down when the story above could simply be written
Man Impregnates Woman
In graduate school, we debated what capital T “Truth” meant such as the basic origins and facts of life, what we’re here for, and what happens when we leave this world. Today, however, this discussion has morphed into lowercase “t” truth where core questions have been relegated to what’s as personal and unique to each of us as eye color. The problem is that although we each have individual biological traits, overarching truths such as sex/gender persist.
There’s more. There is always more.
A transgender man and his husband recently welcomed a healthy baby boy into their family in Portland, Oregon.
According to KATU-TV, Trystan Reese, who was born a woman and now identifies as a man, gave birth to a boy, Leo, two weeks ago. It is the first biological child for Reese and his husband, Biff Chaplow. The couple also has two adopted children.
“I would say it’s unique,” Reese told KATU. “I understand that people are not used to two men having a biological child between the two of them. So we know its unique.”
Once again, “Man Impregnates Woman.”
You can change your own window dressing as much as you like but if we were to take a DNA test, what we’ll find is either a biological man or a biological woman. In all sincerity, if deep down you believe you are the opposite sex, I feel for you. But we can’t change these facts.
If we can’t agree on basic truths such as there are only two sexes, what makes us think we can agree on lesser issues like a flat or fair tax?
