In the last few days, the news has been buzzing about a transgender (woman–turned–man except for the sexual organs) fellow who claims to be 20 weeks pregnant with a baby girl.
But, Thomas Beatie's neighbors and others aren't convinced he's telling the truth. One neighbor said:

Since Thomas kept his female reproductive parts, he was able to conceive. Having taken testosterone injections for years, the former female looks like an expectant man. Obstetrician Lisa Masterston from Cedar Sinai told Good Morning America that there is one other transgender pregnancy on record and that it's entirely possible if all the parts are still in place. She also said the dad-to-be should stop his hormone injections for the sake of the baby's reproductive organs.
Do you think this could be a hoax?
