How do i have a baby if i am a trans male?

Im in college and I’m pursuing a career in acting, it’s going well but I feel a little bit bored with my life. Relationships don’t do me any good. I really like kids, so I was thinking of maybe having a child of my own? I know that I’m young and that I have my entire life ahead of me but I’ve been thinking about this for a very long time.

I’m transgender, so I can’t give birth or impregnate a women like a cisgendered male. I was thinking of maybe reaching out to those sperm banks.. maybe a women can birth my child and I can choose the father. Or should I just adopt?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Being a 'bit bored with life' doesn't sound like a good reason to have kids

  • You don't sound like you should have kids tbh. That doesn't sound like the type of life a kid should grow up with.

  • A bored college student who's pursuing an impossible career, doesn't have a house, and whos probably not making much money. You're not ready for a kid. Do you expect to burden your family and friends with helping to take care of a kid you cant pay for? Wait a few years until you're in a better place in life.

  • Uh, I don't consider boredom a viable reason to have kids. Anyway, you're in college. How boring can your life be at the moment? What, you gonna stuff the kid in your backpack every day and shove it in your locker while you go to class?

    Get yourself established with a consistent source of income and suitable living arrangement. Then think about adopting a kid.

  • You want a child, an actual human being, just because you’re a bored college student? That’s a terrible idea. Get a dog or something. Or babysit in your free time.

  • Let's see here, you are a: Single (fe)male without a spouse, pursuing a career in acting as in going in for casting calls while working for Starbucks? Also I'm assuming because you are trans you made yourself infertile hmm?

    Yep buddy that's not going to work. Single normal people have a shit enough time getting an adopted kid. Getting a baby from a woman using donated sperm is going to rank up to around 80k in just costs for the female and and the sperm plus delivery.

    Yeah I'm just going to be flat out I dont think trans people are in the correct state of mind to have children. Homosexuals sure you can raise a kid. Transsexuals maybe when you get out of the DM5 (most likely never). Sorry, but hey! Get to save some of that money for acting.

  • Adoption? Not really a very clever question, do you have a womb?

  • In this day and age with all the child protective laws poping left and right I doubt they let you adopt on the grounds of you being trans. I know but that's the sad truth about our society. that's how fucked up the world is with the LGBTQ community and single parents.
