You're on the internet...look up micropenis. LOL

I prefer to call my junk a penis no matter what it is or was as most transmen do. Most of my parts are mixed so I just don't know what exactly to call it though I can ejaculate through the tip so it's like a small penis with the back split open. I've had ultrasounds done and they still can't tell what's inside so the surgeon will have fun finding out. LOL

And, yes, they do a surgery called metoidioplasty that creates a micropenis out of what's there along with a scrotum and balls. I would prefer a penis that I can have sex with.

Lots happening in the struggle for equal rights and acceptance. I feel like we life in 2 countries, here in the US. Interesting, still, that the purveyors of hate never seem to come up with information-based rationale for their hate - just the same old tired repeats of pseudo-history and pseudo-biblical hackneyed old saws. On a brighter note....

Ditto!

Wait.  The Vagina is sewn up VT?  Since you are getting a micro penis.  Is it still possible to pee through it?

I am in the same boat as you Dallas

I don't know the difference, being circumcised myself, but I do get angry when anyone tries to justify it.  It is obvious mutilation.  But, due to culture and growing up in the USA, I have always seen the circumcised penis as "normal" and attractive.  It shouldn't be that way.

Not only is the practice a product of religion, but it has caused a disrespect for the penis.  This is hard to reconcile being that penis is so important to most of us.  It might be that individual straight men, find their penises to be important to them, but they don't want to think about, or at least admit to thinking about someone else's penis. 

Imagine if anyone said, "If she looks at another guy, or if she does whatever..., I'll tear her breasts off, or I'll cut off her clit, or I'll sew up her vagina."  Everyone would be outraged, and rightfully so.  But, do you all remember back to the time of Bobbit having his penis cut off by his outraged wife?  Not only did everyone, including the media, make a big joke about it, there was even discussion of whether or not, she was justified.  Knowing how important the penis is to a man, it was and still is used as a subject of vulnerability and punishment.

While I'm not obsessed over it and I do feel quite "normal", I do see circumcision as a violation and mutilation of the individual.  Imagine how the inter-sexed person feels.  Not only were they not given the choice of being able to live as a man or a woman, they may choose to live just as they are.  Not only would surgery possibly remove any sexual sensation, besides that, the person may feel comfortable living neither as a male or a female.  It should be the choice of that person, when they are old enough to make it.  In the case of correction needed to assist in urination, again, the minimal surgery should be performed so that the person can make a decision about gender and sexual function, in their own time.

VT, for what it's worth, I think clitorectomy is much more extreme than circumcision.   I'm against circumcision, but one is more major than the other.

Thank you SB. That was the point I was trying to make and I totally agree.

>>>My concern is if most of the surgeries are forced conformity to a >>>rigid gender standard.  It leads me to think psychological >>>injuries may be greater than the cosmetic "benefit", and need to >>>be respected.

Comment by vegantiger on May 13, 2012 at 8:46pm

I find it interesting almost everyone agrees that clitorectomies are child abuse and mutilation but people still don't get the connection with circumcision which is the same thing. It's religious stupidity and they've partnered with the medical field to claim it's done in the name of cleanliness, which you can hear most people chant like they're in a trance. It was originally done to curtail masterbation. Like that helped. LOL
