Owen Strachan: Nothing About Biology Has Changed

A recent headline that I’ll quote directly illustrates our pervasive sexual confusion today: “Trans man gives birth to non-binary person’s baby with female sperm donor.”

Let’s analyze this headline in light of truth.

“Trans man gives birth”—Reuben, who gave birth to the child, is a biological woman who self-identifies as transgender.

“To non-binary person’s baby”—Jay, Reuben’s partner, is a biological woman who doesn’t want to be identified as a woman.

“With female sperm donor”—We’re talking about the sexual contribution from a biological man who self-identifies as a trans woman.

Only the natural sexual contribution of a man and woman can produce a baby.

Only a woman can give birth.
