Australian cricketer Megan Scutt and her partner Jess Holyoake are all set to welcome their first child in November and people on Twitter are creating a frenzy regarding the identity of the father of their child and how can two women conceive a baby.
Megan and Jess met at the National cricket center in Brisbane and got married in 2017, the year Australia legalized same-sex marriage. The day same-sex marriage was legalized, she announced their wedding on social media.
In May, Megan took to social media to share the good news with a photo of a number 3 jersey with her number 3 and her dog and cat, she wrote, “Jess and I are excited to FINALLY be able to spill the beans Jess has the joy of carrying a mini-me, lucky her baby girl already being smothered by the cat”.

Ever since the announcement, she and Jess were being hounded with questions about the father of their child. Finally, after getting frustrated, she took to Twitter and said what she wanted to say for a long time, “Alright. There have been MANY comments and/or quote tweets on the photo of my wife and I… I’m very sick of giving the benefit of the doubt to those asking “how is this possible?” or even better, “who is the father?”

She asked people to look at the process of IVF on the internet and stop asking these questions, “If you have access to Twitter, then you would have access to the internet. So, guess what fellas? Look it up. I understand that IVF isn’t a common topic in some countries, but to think all babies are conceived the “natural way” is an insult to more than just same-sex couples.”
“I’ve been a part of articles that explain the process we have gone through, so if you genuinely want to know, read them (again, they’re on the internet that you clearly have access to).” She added.
She also made it clear that if the people abuse or don’t behave properly on Twitter, then they will be blocked as no one deserves that kind of hatred or abuse, “If you’re commenting with any abuse, hostility, malice or on behalf of YOUR religious beliefs. Then you will be blocked or muted. No one wants to read your hurtful comments… but a big thank you to all those that have shown their support and love, we need more of you in the world. End rant.”
People really need to stop asking these questions to same-sex couples, it’s inappropriate and wrong. Look it up on the internet, for once use it to gain knowledge. there are a lot of people on the internet who spread information regarding these topics.
