Please re-read my comment, i clearly answer your question already. I dont see how that is an investment, an investments is for money-making purposes. I dont think she did it to
make money. She can save money for her child, that's why. If she wants to be a mother she also needs to be responsible and think about the future.

Still she their mom. A parent is the one who take care of you no because you came out of somebody vagina or penis.


If a kid came out of my penis I'd be concerned ;-)

And if that's the definition you're going with than what was the point of this post? In that case any adoptive mother should garner the same headlines and attention.

Good for her. Some women do become mothers with donor eggs even if they won't be their's genetically.

95 percent genetically male? ehh arent cats (male and female) technically 90% genetically humans? and bananas 50% genetically humans?
i kinda feel like this article was just to throw something in the face of the religious folk when i think all females and males are genetically similar minus the xy chromosomes

I have to agree with Frenzify on this one. I think it was just over the top procedures which at the end of the day adopting a child would of had the same results. She could of saved that money, which im sure it wasn't cheap and could of been used to grow that child or send him to college.


The thing is that adoption isn't necessarily free (it can actually cost tens of thousands of dollars in addition to the cost of raising the child once you stack all the fees together), it's not an easy or comfortable process (practically every aspect of your life is scrutinized), and not everyone will qualify to adopt even if they hop through every hoop, fill out every bit of paperwork, deliver every cent of the cost of processing, and are found to be perfectly qualified to serve as parents. There are places where same-sex couples are specifically institutionally excluded from adopting irrespective of their willingness, competency, socioeconomic status, and personal circumstances like location, educational level, and so on.

She's not biologically their mother though.

Like, I understand what you mean; I class my step-dad as my dad to other people because he's the one who's took care of me, but he's not my real dad, I am not blood-related to him.

This article is pretty much a surrogate donor story.


To me personally even if they are your biological parent that does't make them your parent. Parent is the one who want to raise you. Hell even if you are full grown adult a parent is still the one who want to be in your life and teach you things.

When I read the op, I was thinking, "kleinfelters? Often times when the genitals were indistinct, I remember being taught it used to get treated by making them female.."

Secondarily, I also have my doubts about it since it's... well.. india. Some of the developments in asia as of late have also suffered from some discrediting the more outrageous claims/successes in genetic science..

Regardless, if it's all true, then ok.. fine.. Whatever.

From the Times of India article:


She never menstruated, or experienced puberty


Soo... she's an Indian Konata?

No, she physically a women but her DNA is mainly of a man. She has uterus. And for your information the word tranny is offensive to transgender people. I know everything can be made a joke or be made fun of it. But there a time and place for it.

The individual in question has XY gonadal dysgenesis, not gender dysphoria. Even assuming an MTF transsexual did have treatment such that she was able to carry and deliver children it wouldn't be "sick, sick stuff". It'd be a miracle of clinical science. In any event, this is the cut and dry of what we're talking about:

Well what about before she knew she had XY gonadal dysgenesis? Didn't she think not having a menstrual cycle or never experiencing puberty was weird af? If I was her I wouldn't have been surprised about being 95% genetically male. I would have expected it.
