Transgender “man” in Ecuador Pregnant with Child, Conceived with Sperm from Transgender “wife”

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” -Isaiah 5:20

We are living in an upside-down topsy-turvy world.

The female human is designed with a womb, to conceive, bear and give birth, and be a mother.

The male human is designed with sperm to impregnate the female, and be father to her child.

But two “transgenders” in Ecuador are making history with a unique pregnancy.

The two are named Fernando Machado and Diane Rodriguez.

Fernando Machado, born Maria Macado, is actually a biological female — a so-called female-to-male transgender. Her partner Diane Rodriguez, born Luis Rodriguez, is actually a biological male — a male-to-female transgender.

Fernando Machado — who pretends to be a man — is carrying and will give birth to the baby, conceived with the sperm of Diane Rodriguez, who pretends to be a woman.

Although both are taking hormones, neither has undergone “gender-reassignment” or genital-mutilation surgery.

Fernando Machado and Diane Rodriguez

Here’s the AP report (via The Guardian) on December 24, 2015 — a day deliberately chosen as a “F-you” to Christ and to Christians. I’ve changed the gender pronouns to correctly reflect the couple’s true biological identities:

A couple in Ecuador is making history with a unique pregnancy: The father-to-be is carrying the baby of his transgender partner.

Fernando Machado and Diane Rodriguez announced their pregnancy, believed to be the first of its kind in South America, on social media earlier this month and it’s received widespread attention in a continent that has seen a sudden explosion in the rights and visibility of trans people.

Rodriguez, who was born Luis, is one of Ecuador’s most-prominent LGBT activists and says she he and her his Venezuelan-born partner, whose birth name was Maria, decided to publicize the pregnancy to help change attitudes in the staunchly Roman Catholic society. Although both take hormones, neither has undergone gender-reassignment surgery, so the child-to-be was conceived the old-fashioned way with no known medical complications to date.

“We’re trying to break the myths about transsexuality,” Rodriguez told the Associated Press.

So far, church leaders have remained silent, something that Rodriguez says both surprises and pleases her him.

“The church is always criticizing gays and homosexuals for adopting children, so it would be a contradiction to criticize us for giving birth naturally,” she he said from her his home in Guayaquil.

If you are confused, imagine how confused Machado and Rodriguez’s child will be.
