A transgender couple have revealed they are expecting their first baby in a month’s time.

Scott Moore - thought to be only the second ‘pregnant man’ to go public - is due to give birth to a boy in February, with husband Thomas by his side.

Scott, 30, who is legally married to Thomas because he still has a female birth certificate, says he is eagerly looking forward to giving birth.
They have decided to call the child ‘Miles’.

‘We know some people will criticise us but we are blissfully happy and not ashamed,’ Scott said.
The couple, from California, already have two children - Gregg, 12, and Logan, 10 - who Thomas had with a previous female partner.

Was just looking at SMH.com and the teaser pic for the "photos of the week" was Mitzi Macintosh, so of course I had to look... there are three photos of Mitzi in the newly renovated Imperial Hotel... it's clearly not QUITE finished, but looks like it's just about ready to reopen... anyone heard anything?? Have I been living under a rock?

I’m not a very good lesbian. The militant gender-policing wimmin-born-wimmin penetration-is-rape smash-the-patriarchy lesbians are going to take away my membership card and deodorant crystal if they find out. I like boys. Tranny boys, butches, genderqueers, bois, Daddys and I’ve even been known to pant in the direction of the occasional factory-standard gay leatherman. Usually bears.

I’ve given many reasons for my predilection over the years, lofty, political, intelligent and passionate reasons. At the base of it all though, I like cock. More to the point, I like sucking cock. Show me a queer packing a bulge and I go weak at the knees, which is quite handy because on them is where I want to be.

When I was still doing the straight thing, I sucked a lot of cock. Like Bill Clinton, I didn’t think that a blow job counted as “sexual relations”. I did not have sexual relations with those men. I wasn’t a very good straight girl either, apart from being an unrealised queer, I liked giving head. Good straight girls apparently don’t enjoy that, it’s just something they do to keep the boys happy. Me? I loved it, I loved the power of having their most precious possession at the mercy of my teeth, I loved the way I could make them beg, I loved the way their cocks would twitch with just a little flick of my tongue.

I still love those things. Every now and then I bump up against people who don’t understand. I brush against the perception that there isn’t much point sucking on a silicone dick, it’s not like the owner can feel it after all. Right? Well, I’ve never worn a cock, let alone had it sucked, and I would never presume to speak for the boys and butches and queers who pack, but I think they feel it. And in my opinion, there’s more to a good blow job than sucking like your life depends on getting that golf ball through the garden hose.

The groan that escapes from a boy as I hold his hips and put a condom on with my mouth. The way he pants as our eyes lock - his half closed staring down at me, mine streaming tears as his cock chokes off my air. The way she shudders when I struggle against my gag reflex. That moment when his eyes close and his head falls back as my lips reach the base of his cock. Yeah, I think they feel me. I know I feel them.

Gay penguins expelled from zoo colony for stealing eggs are given their own to look after following animal rights protest
By Caroline Graham

A pair of gay penguins thrown out of their zoo colony for repeatedly stealing eggs have been given some of their own to look after following a protest by animal rights groups.
Last month the birds were segregated after they were caught placing stones at the feet of parents before waddling away with their eggs.

But angry visitors to Polar Land in Harbin, northern China, complained it wasn't fair to stop the couple from becoming surrogate fathers and urged zoo bosses to give them a chance.

Who's the daddy? The segregated penguin couple, right, are seen here in their own enclosure quarrelling with another male over stolen eggs

In response, zookeepers gave the pair two eggs laid by an inexperienced first-time mother.

'We decided to give them two eggs from another couple whose hatching ability had been poor and they've turned out to be the best parents in the whole zoo,' said one of the keepers.

'It's very encouraging and if this works out well we will try to arrange for them to become real parents themselves with artificial insemination.'

Wildlife experts at the park explain that despite being gay the three-year-old male birds are still driven by an urge to be fathers.

'One of the responsibilities of being a male adult is looking after the eggs. Despite the fact that they can't have eggs naturally, it does not take away their biological drive to be a parent,' said one.

One campaigner who did not want to be named welcomed the move and said: 'It wasn't fair to stop them becoming parents and keep them apart from all the other birds just because of the way nature has made them.'

Last month zookeepers said the couple were removed from the group not because of discrimination, but so as not to disturb the colony during hatching time.
