Is he or isn't he?

Lee Mingwei is pregnant. So what, you may say, millions of women are pregnant right now! But Lee is a man. The world's first pregnant man! Check out his website if you don't believe me!
Mind you, if you do check, be sure to do it with a skeptical eye. Just because it's on the internet and has a flashy site doesn't make it true. The RYT hospital also claim to have a transgenic sapient mouse, called Clewyn, and nanites that look like something out of Star Wars!
Although male pregnancy is technically possible, it requires lots of female hormones, which would ravage the male body, with permanent results. That's why transgender boys have to be really, really sure they want to transition before they start on hormones, because once they start, they can't go back.
My gut feeling is that this is a hoax site, but it sure as hell impresses on first reading! Let me know what you think!

I like his sites, they look pretty genuine as you say. The DNA scan done by pressing your thumb is pushing credibility a bit too far though!
