Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie has created a media storm with the debut of his newborn baby pictures. The 'Pregnant Man Pictures' storm was strong enough to knock TrendHunter down (generating 150,000 page views in an afternoon). And I must admit that I agree with our Chief Hunter Jeremy Gutsche's noted, â€œIt's all getting a bit ridiculous.â€
Fittingly enough, Thomas Beatie has been nominated for a Most Talked About Drag Queen or Transgender Person [for making the headlines, good or bad] Award in the 2008 Gay Socialites Awards. Given that the search for 'Pregnant Man Baby Pictures' was number one for a couple days, he'll probably win.
Thomas Beatie shares the nomination with actress Candis Kane from the TV show â€œDirty Sexy Moneyâ€, and outrageous New York nightlife personality and Heatherette muse Amanda Lepore, among others.
It's very fitting that the nomination includes the clarification, 'for making the headlines, good or bad', because it is very debatable whether the whole Pregnant Man media saturation is good or bad. Thomas Beatie has made headlines everywhere, sparked passionate debates, and even appeared on Oprah.
