At least to me.
You may or may not be familiar with Mr. Beattie. He is currently a public speaker, author, and advocate of transgender and sexuality issues, with a focus on transgender fertility and reproductive rights.
However, Mr. Beattie first came into the limelight way back in 2008 when he became the first trans* man to become pregnant and carry to term the couples' first child, a daughter. Over the next 2 years, he would give birth to another 2 children, both boys. In 2010, Thomas Beattie he was named "Guiness Book of World Records - World's First Married Man to Give Birth".
In 2012, Mr. Beattie and his wife, Nancy, would finally receive their final divorce decree after a long, hard and bittersweet court battle; setting legal precedence in Arizona for gender identity and marriages involving transgender partners. Also, 2012 is the year he would finalize his transition by having 'lower surgery'. Four years later (2016), he would remarry; this time to his children's preschool director, Amber.
While not all think he is notable, I do. I find him a point of pride and admiration, If not simply for holding his ground and protecting his human right to create his family as he and his spouse saw fit, but to also live his life as he deserves it to be.
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Beattie! May you be blessed with many, many wonderful years together!
When your done reading about him, give the movie MILK with Sean Penn a look.
I think it is a great tribute to man making a difference while supporting and bringing up, others around him.
At least to me.

I have spent quite a few years writing short stories that never quite fit into the 'normal' genre. When I came across the different erotica genres I was overjoyed. I had found my writing family. I hope that everyone enjoys what I've written. Please feel free to send me a comment/suggestion good/bad/indifferent. I appreciate all feedback! Bright Blessings!
