Trans man and Satanic minister gives birth after one-night stand with fellow gay dating app user: ‘Giving birth felt like one of the most masculine things I have done’

Reported by SARAH TAYLOR | January 06, 2022


A transgender man became pregnant after a one-night stand on a gay dating app — and he says that the experience “felt like one of the most masculine things” he’s ever done. According to the Daily Mail, 28-year-old Ash Patrick Schade — a self-described minister of Satan, mental health worker, and Ph.D. student — became pregnant during his transition from a female to a male.

“I was going through a rough time from 2019 and 2020 and struggled with my mental health due to going through a divorce,” Schade, who began his transition in 2018, said. “I ended up going on Grindr hookups and accidentally fell pregnant.”

Schade — who was married to a man prior to the transition — was taking testosterone and estrogen blockers and became pregnant during a one-night stand on dating app Grindr.

“It had never occurred to me that I could get pregnant whilst on testosterone and estrogen blockers, as it’s such a rare occurrence,” Schade said according to the report.

Schade, who later met his current husband, Jordan, while pregnant with the child, gave birth to a healthy baby daughter in October 2020. Schade said that the birthing process was more unique than he could ever have known.

“‘When I went into labor, the team of medical staff had already been briefed on my situation and were amazing, until they were swapped out with different staff members later on,” Schade recalled. “It may sound counter-intuitive, but giving birth felt like one of the most masculine things I have done.”

‘I can explain to her how I am both her mom and her dad’

Schade said that he felt very supported during the whole process.

“[T]hroughout the whole thing I had the love of my husband Jordan supporting me throughout, he even cut Ronan’s cord, he’s been there every step of the way,” Schade said according to the U.K.’s Daily Star. “I had all of my friends following my journey and checking in, as well as the support of the online gay and trans community and even the Satanic Temple of which I’m a member.”

Following his delivery, he had top surgery to remove his breasts and plans to have bottom surgery once he’s done having children.

The outlet reported that Schade said he’d long struggled with feeling like he was in the “wrong body” and even attended conversion therapy as a child.

“I hid my boobs and identified as a boy at school and went by Ash and wore gothic dark clothes as a way to hide how I looked,” Schade said. “Until one day, my mother, who does not wish to be named, sent me to school in a pink two-piece for picture day and my teacher loudly declared that I was actually a girl called Ashley. … I went from popular to a nobody overnight, with my then girlfriend’s mum calling my mom to ‘Keep that gay slur of a child away from my daughter.'”

Schade said that he experienced a “really horrible childhood” and survived a suicide attempt from the “gender dysphoria and trauma” he endured.

The new parent said that he plans to tell his daughter all about his journey when she’s older.

“I want to be honest and open with Ronan the whole way and explain to her that sometimes trans men can have babies,” he said. “I can explain to her how I am both her mom and her dad.”

Britsol Palin Announces She’s Pregnant, Liberal Haters Call on Her to Have an Abortion

Bristol Palin, the daughter of pro-life former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has announced she’s pregnant with her second baby. No sooner did the pro-life advocate make the announcement than pro-abortion haters called on her to have an abortion. Palin revealed that she was expecting in a post on her blog.

“I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant,” she wrote. “Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one. I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends and to many of you.”

“Life moves on no matter what,” she said. “So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up and never give up.”

“When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher,” she added. “I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”

The pro-abortion web site Gawker heaped its hate on Bristol Palin with a article that was headlined: “Bristol Palin Makes Great Argument for Abortion in Baby Announcement.”Hate Merchants

Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America encouraged Bristol to hold her head up high.

“Reading Bristol Palin’s pregnancy announcement was difficult. Like so many women who face an unplanned pregnancy, she knows she has disappointed herself and her family in her decision not to remain chaste yet she knows the precious, tiny human being growing inside of her doesn’t deserve to be killed to simply spare her of the embarrassment she will face,” she said. “You know what? She is an incredible, real and honest example of a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy. She’s not hiding her feelings, however difficult and uncomfortable they may be for her.”

“And she is choosing life. And that should be applauded,” she concluded.

Joy Pullmann of The Federalist responded to the hate spewed by the pro-abortion web site:

While implying Palin is a skank (which sort of projection leftists insist they adamantly oppose), Gawker also interprets Palin’s obvious frustration at her second pregnancy as a great reason for her to kill the child. Right, because it’s so fair for parents to murder their kids as a solution for having done at an inconvenient time the only thing in the world that makes a kid. Talk about blame the victim.

The writer’s treatment of Palin also makes me suspect the writer has never been pregnant, because if she had, she’d understand that we pregnant ladies all get frustrated at our uncomfortable state of affairs. Pregnancy isn’t a picnic. All that “glowing” and “you’re so beautiful” crap is a lie, at least in my experience. Pretty much every change pregnancy brings, except the baby, sucks. Oh, and that little thing about how motherhood also helps erase our childless selves’ smug, selfish complacency. Creating a new life, making ourselves better, making the world better…that’s all pregnancy gets you in the long run, despite all the very real short-term suck.

And, heck, all mothers get upset with their kids, no matter their size or stage of development. That’s not a great argument for letting us kill our kids at any time we feel they’re more work and pain than we can handle. It’s a great argument for a) helping us realize maybe our emotions shouldn’t rule our decisions and b) supporting and encouraging parents, with more than a sarcastic “Congrats on the baby!” after subjecting Palin to passive-aggressive cat clawing. What a jerky thing to say to a woman who is physically and emotionally struggling, and willing to be honest about it with a world she knows is going to mock her.

Instead of an argument for abortion, Palin’s struggle is certainly a good one for abstinence. If it’s hard to have a baby, it’s even harder to do it without the support of a good man committed to you and his baby for life. I know that because my husband is the greatest happiness in my life, and never more so when he sets aside his comfort to serve my rather astonishing appetite of needs during pregnancy and its aftermath. It would be impossible to do this without him, and my heart goes out to Palin, knowing she doesn’t have that blessed relief.

Conservative writer Steven Crowder also responded:


First off, everyone knows the Palins – including Bristol – are very pro-life. To suggest that Bristol’s announcement implies she should have an abortion is both cruel and evil. Cruel to Bristol, and evil in thinking she can’t possibly be happy unless she kill the innocent life inside her.

As for the disappointment, that has nothing to do the baby. Then why would Bristol say this pregnancy has been and will be a disappointment, you ask? Because after her first pregnancy, Bristol became a powerful advocate for abstinence (which, by the way, remains the only 100% sure-fire way not to become pregnant). Since we all know where babies come from, this pregnancy means that Bristol – a human being – failed to practice what she’s been preaching.

Yes, Bristol Palin failed. She failed to hit the high standard she’s attempted to set. As a result, her life just got a lot harder. Bristol’s not sugar coating it. Nor is she asking that of anyone else. This is going to be hard. It’s hard to be a single mom of two. Even harder when the media’s constantly scrutinizing your every move.

But you know what? Bristol and baby will be fine. Why? Because she knows she messed up and that God is merciful and forgives when we mess up.

Where is Michelle Obama’s Hashtag for Meriam Ibrahim? She’s Pregnant and Sentenced to Die

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | | 5/23/14 12:28 PM

Michelle Obama did a great job at raising awareness of the hundreds of girls kidnapped by terrorists in Africa. She lent credibility and awareness to #BringOutGirlsBack – the twitter hashtag devoted to making the world be informed about their terrible plight.

But where is Michelle Obama on another human rights victim — someone of interest to pro-life advocates and Christians around the world?

meriamThe First Lady has been silent on the plight of Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian woman sentenced to death in Sudan for rejecting Islam who is being shackled by Sudanese officials despite the fact she is eight-months pregnant. The Islamic court is waiting until Meriam Ibrahim, 26, gives birth before carrying out the sentence but she is reportedly held in chains until then.

SIGN THE PETITION! Save Meriam Ibrahim, Don’t Hang her to Death for Her Faith

Writing at The Federalist, Leslie Loftis takes Obama to task for her silence when it comes to Meriam.

It is easy to ignore the religious motivation for the girls’ kidnapping under the horrible drama of the actual event. But Meriam is in shackles in Sudan because she is a Christian. A Sudanese court has found her guilty of 1) adultery, for having sex with her husband—she is married to a Christian but since her absent father was Muslim, the court considers her a Muslim and therefore does not recognize the union, and 2) apostasy, refusal to renounce her Christian faith. For the adultery, she received a sentence of 100 lashes, stayed until she gives birth sometime in early June.

For the apostasy, she was sentenced to death, stayed until her baby turns two. (That turns the breast-is-best wars on it’s head. Breastfeeding is important enough to stay the execution, but the mother/child relationship is not enough for mercy? Ponder the attitudes toward women packed in that delay; they are plenty, but still not enough to overshadow the religious nature of this injustice.) And the reason her toddler is in the cell with her, the court also considers him Muslim based upon his maternal grandfather, therefore his Christian father is an unacceptable caregiver.

For Christian persecution, the US State Department, even at the behest of New Hampshire’s Senators, can hardly even muster a delayed and infamous-as-it-is-ineffective “sternly worded letter.” There is comparatively little press coverage. Not even a hashtag campaign.
