Brody has two mommies!

The transgender fad generates some intriguing conundra for atheism. Militant atheists like Richard Carrier have been riding that bandwagon. It advances their own agenda to hitch their caboose to the steam engine of the power elite.
Unsurprisingly, Carrier is a critic of the virgin birth. But how does that mesh with his endorsement of the transgender ideology? 
If transgender ideology is true, then there's a sense in which Brody Jenner is the product of a virginal conception–or the functional equivalent. Brody has no daddy, but he does have two mommies (Linda Thompson, Caitlyn Jenner)! He wasn't fathered by Caitlyn, since a woman can't father a child. Only a transphobic bigot would presume to say that Brody was fathered by Bruce Jenner.
As GLAAD instructs us, coming out as transgender is retroactive:
DO refer to her as Caitlyn Jenner. DON’T refer to her by her former name. She has changed it, and should be accorded the same respect received by anyone who has changed their name. Since Caitlyn Jenner was known to the public by her prior name, it may be necessary initially to say "Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner…" However, once the public has learned Jenner's new name, do not continually refer to it in stories. 
DO use female pronouns (she, her, hers) when referring to Caitlyn Jenner. 
DO avoid male pronouns and Caitlyn's prior name, even when referring to events in her past. For example, "Prior to her transition, Caitlyn Jenner won the gold medal in the men's decathlon at the Summer Olympics held in Montreal in 1976." 
AVOID the phrase "born a man" when referring to Jenner. If it is necessary to describe for your audience what it means to be transgender, consider: "While Caitlyn Jenner was designated male on her birth certificate, as a young child she knew that she was a girl."
So Brody never had a father. He's literally fatherless. He's the product of trans parthenogenesis.
