Penis too small? You might actually be a woman, go see a Doctor! ;)
 
You can't make up this stuff.

This makes the whole gender identity "issue" even more muddled.

Wow, what a surprise so late in life! I'm actually surprised that no one knew about anything earlier. I'm sure a 66 year old person has been to the doctor many times. Of course, maybe not. Either way, that's quite a life event to wrap one's mind around!

^It's actually more common than one might imagine, though I think it more often happens that males are misidentified as females. There is even a community (I believe in South America, though I'm not positive because it's been a while since I studied this), where it is actually very common for boys to be raised as girls until they hit puberty, their testes descend and their penises grow. It's genetic and the community is tight knit, so it happens frequently there. Sometimes people refer to this as "ambiguous genitalia" but I know that many individuals who have genitalia not as easily classified as male or female find that term offensive.

I'd highly, highly recommend the novel Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, which is told from the perspective of an intersex man raised as a girl. It's one of my favorite novels, actually.

Uhhhh... no menstruation? He/She didn't pee blood once a month? Or was there some "lost in the middle" kind of condition where there is a uterus but no periodic ovulation?

I mean, this is just a really freak exception to the rule. Any blood work done on him during one of many possible common hospital tests would've shown that this person is a woman. Must be someone who has lived a secluded life and... well, I know I probably would if I was so equipped. :wtf:

Typical guy. If it doesn't bleed, it doesn't breed. Read TSQ's post, then read, I don't know, a fucking article. It's three pages, you can manage.

Sorry to be such a bitch about this, I really am, but every time I hear a guy talk about a period I think of a Viking talking about neuroscience.

I probably went over the top. I'm a Q. We do that. Just see TNG season 1.

Like.

Oh wait, that doesn't work here.

Seriously, Gary, what an ignorant and nasty thing to say. I really love your avatar, though.

I was almost embarrassed to click on this thread. Almost. :shifty:

Yes there's a man who clearly knows where his dick is.

But when girls hit puberty, what happens? Menstruation. And that's what has me puzzled, because if genetically a person is female, complete with uterus and Fallopian tubes, then wouldn't they menstruate? Or is it that the organs are there but somehow inert... live organs but not performing reproductive related functions? Why can't I ask questions like this without getting pounced on? I'm not trying to be a dickhead, just expand understanding. :wtf:

^There are many reasons a woman might not menstruate. A simple look at the wikipedia page on Turner's Syndrome would be enough to tell you that most women with Turner's don't menstruate.

This explains the asshole in college that called me a faggot when his dick was so small the girl he was fucking couldn't feel it. I always thought he was bottom boy in the closet, turns out he's just a female.

Instantly Gary 7 looks a whole lot better in this thread.

Seriously, I do appreciate now that Gary owned up to the ignorance of the statement and is smart enough to want to learn about the issue.

Also now that Gary's avatar is Picard sitting on it and swiveling my mind is full of bad thoughts. So I am grateful.

^I don't know...I kind of liked the Riker one better -- it was more in character. It reminded me of that brilliant youtube edit of Riker Sitting Down Like a Crazy Person:
