Men Can Get Pregnant Too
Couple weeks ago on Ask Cristen I tackledthe question, 'Should Men Have a Say in Abortion?' Couple weeks ago on Ask Cristen I tackledthe question, 'Should Men Have a Say in Abortion?' which left out a very important group of menwho absolutely should have a say in abortions because they can get pregnant as well. In a very cisnormative way I failed to acknowledgethe fact that uteruses and the ability to get pregnant intentionallyor unintentionally do not exclusively belong to women. Take it from commenter cldcollectorwho said, 'Hey, trans person here. Just because someone is assigned female at birth doesn'tnecessarily mean that individual identifies as a woman. *points to self* I'm here. I'mgenderqueer. I've also given birth to an amazing.
Kiddo. Just sayin'.' And thank you for saying. kiddo. Just sayin'.' And thank you for saying. Similarly tuxedomarmot said, 'I wish thatin conversations like these people would remember that trans people exist. Some men and nonbinarypeople do have uteruses, and their right to abortions are also important to consider.Note that not all trans people transition or have surgeries. For starters not all transpeople have access to those things.' While there's no firm data on exactly howmany trans men give birth every year in the US, Jennifer Kerns who is an assistantprofessor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of CaliforniaSanFranciscothat's a long titleestimates.
That it's in the thousands. And Kerns shouldknow because she recently conducted one of that it's in the thousands. And Kerns shouldknow because she recently conducted one of if not the first study examining trans men'spregnancy experiences. The study interviewed fortyone transmenabout a third of whom had gotten pregnant unintentionally, which only goes to show yetagain how talking about reproductive rights as I did in very cisnormative and genderbinary terms, excludes some people who are also quot;at riskquot; for unintended pregnanciesand might face similar choices. Regardless of whether the pregnancies wereplanned or unplanned though the men in that study highlighted two major difficulties withtheir pregnancies. Finding adequate healthcare.
Because healthcare for transgender peoplein general is already challenging due to a because healthcare for transgender peoplein general is already challenging due to a lot of discrimination that happens in 'soffices. If you are a transman looking for obstetric care that can also be challengingto find a who recognizes and validates the unique healthcare needs of transmen mergedwith the unique healthcare needs of someone who is pregnant. Heaped on top of that isthe challenge of merely walking through the world as someone who might outwardly looklike a man but who also has a pregnant belly. In addition to highlighting the very realand important needs for trans visibility and acceptance in our society, reading firsthandaccounts of pregnancies in this study also.
Highlighted to me perhaps some issues withhow we tend to talk about and conceptualize highlighted to me perhaps some issues withhow we tend to talk about and conceptualize motherhood and fatherhood as well in verygenderbinary terms that might also be exclusionary to nongender conforming people where mothersand fathers might not look or play the same roles as we think of them playing traditionallyand that does not at all mitigate their love and care for their children. I just wantedto leave you with this one quote from a twentynine year old respondent to the study who said,'Pregnancy and childbirth were very male experiences for me. When I birthed my children I was borninto fatherhood.' And that sounds like a pretty incredible experience.
