There was never any open, society-wide discussion about whether or not these surgeries were necessary or even ethical. Why does our society automatically assume that doctors are incapable of committing mass atrocities? Why are we not screaming about the horror of cutting off the healthy body parts of people with emotional problems? Why does everyone believe that castration and clitoridectomy really do change a person into the opposite sex? Castrating men does not make them into women, no matter what goes on between their ears about sexist stereotypes. Chopping off the tits off adolescent girls does not make them instant boys. All this “medical intervention” does is make permanent medical consumers out of confused, neutered and hoodwinked people.
I’m filing this post under GENDER MARTYRS.
A devastated young transgender woman says she has been left ‘disfigured and feeling like a freak’ following two ‘botched’ reassignment operations.
Kia, 26, who asked for her real name not to be used, from Wales, has been forced to seek private treatment after she says the procedures left her in near-constant pain and her urethra permanently exposed.
Doctors also failed to inform her she had been ‘castrated’ by the operations, and instead of opening during arousal the tissue left over now closes shut.
Kia, who self-medicated from her early teens, first saw a doctor at 16 and had her first appointment at a gender identity clinic in London when she was 21.
She eventually went under the knife for the first time two years ago.
