    I think that the guys look really cute even though they are pregnant. I think that no matter if you a boy or girl, pregnancy is a great thing. My aunt is due today and my mom is her labor coach. Wish me luck with my new cousin!

      Pregnancy is a great thing, just not when it comes to teenagers.

  • Gabrielle

    Are they really pregnant or is that just special effect stuff or something like that?If they really were pregnant wouldn’t that be weird for the doctor to be looking at a boy`s private?

      Well you know some people are born deformed or with extra limbs well some people can be born with the reproductive system of the opposite gender. My cousin is like that. And actually this thing is pretty common. I know more people transgendered (that’s is what they call it) then I do regular people (including me) my cousin is actually dating another transgender guy (she’s a girl with guys stuff, her boyfriend gots teh girl stuff)

    I have to assume the people commenting on this thread are still very young. Let me clear this up……1. This ad is not about the boys being “sooooo cute”. And if that is all you got from this then you really missed the point and may want to ask a parent, a teacher, a grandmother etc what this ad is really saying. 2. Yes it is photoshop. I understand that there ate transgender men who can technically get pregnant because they have the reproductive of a woman, but that is not what this addressing. 3. BOYS can not get pregnant. They do not have ovaries, uterus, cervix, and they do not produce eggs. I am very very sad that I even had to write that. 4. This is simply a shock tactic talking about teen pregnancy.

    • Slenderman

      Thank you so much for saying that….

      Because the questions that people were asking about these boys actually being pregnant were scaring me.
