I thought the Rumiko Takahashi quote was in response to whether Ranma menstruated.
: I remember that episode of Quantum Leap
. Sam just looks like his host. The episode doesn't actually challenge that. When Sam goes into labor, the fetus magically disappears from the waiting room and appears inside Sam
. Al is suitably confused.
: The Warrior who Carried Life is not about this. The main character is female, becomes male, and impregnates a female. At no time is there a male pregnancy.
Would it fall under this trope if a female becomes pregnant, but in a very obviously supernatural manner, as in the Angel
I have removed the following edit from the "Truth in Television" ABC news story:
- "He" is definitely still a she despite the media's attempts to play up the pregnant man angle.
Thomas Beatie has female sexual organs but, according to sources from internet media, including his own article (http://www.advocate.com/issue_story_ektid52664.asp)
, identifies as male. Although he calls himself transgender rather than transsexual, I see no reason to assert that he is "definitely (sic) still a she".
: ...You know that is
how you spell 'definitely.' (guessing the auto-spelling-correction script did that.)
Anyway, pasting the section Gemmifer cut "because of the natter/Brain Bleach
*Just so it doesn't get added here again: There was a hoax/art-project about actually accomplishing this a while back by a guy called Lee Mingwei. Artistic License - Biology
if you actually bought it.
News reported in March 2008 about Thomas Beatie, a transgendered female-to-male resident of Bend, Oregon, who looks outwardly like a man but still has the reproductive system of a woman. He is expecting to give birth to a baby girl.
**This is a borderline case since he is not biologically a man.
***Technically, he is biologically male but physically female. Transgendered folk kind of take offense at being told that they aren't the gender they know they are.
* Also the condition of Fetus in Fetu
, in which a baby develops a second (at least partial) twin inside itself. The result is that the outer human can appear pregnant
** Note to tropers (especially medical students) posting here: If what you're about to write requires more than one gallon of Brain Bleach
to remove the stain, please, do not post.
