Remember that man Thomas Beattle who gave birth to a baby a few year ago? Faintly? Yeah, me too.. Anyway after having a few kids with his wife Nancy who had a hysterectomy, he’s decided that he just wants to be a baby mama instead. Thomas has filed for divorce after suffering from years of abuse at the hands of his wife. But there is a tiny problem.
An 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.
Thomas gained popularity in 2007 when he was pregnant with his first daughter Susan. He appeared in the covers of every magazine and all over the internet.
Thomas was born as a female in Hawaii as Tracy Lagondino in 1974. He was a Girl Scout, model, and finalist in a Miss Hawaii Teen USA pageant before he began to dress and live as a man in his 20s. She was fairly attractive. No telling what made her want to live as a man…
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.
Don’t know why the judge just won’t grant the man-lady a divorce and move on.
