Incredible Animation Shows How Surgeons Turn A Penis Into A Vagina

Gender reassignmentis quite a major transformation, so making the necessary alterations requires a fair bit of skill. This eye-opening video,uploaded bythe European Society of Urology, provides a detailed look at the key surgical procedures involved in male-to-female gender reaffirmation, whereby the penis and testicles are used to create a vagina that is not only convincing to the eye, but is also capable of orgasm.

As the animation below shows, the procedure begins with the opening of the scrotum in order to remove the testicles, followed by the separation of the glans or head of the penis from the main shaft. Since this is the part of the penis that contains the most sensory nerve endings, it is later used to create a neoclitoris.

The skin of the shaft and scrotum are then used to create the labia and vaginal canal, with many patients going on to enjoy an active and fulfilling sex life.

Of course, a male-to-femaletransformation involves more than just the conversion of the penis and testicles into a vagina, and begins with a series of emotional and lifestyle readjustments.The prospective patient is often required to live as a woman for a period of time before undergoing surgery. This is followed by a course of hormone therapy, using estrogen and anti-androgens (androgens are male sex hormones like testosterone)in order to alter the patient’s musculature and fat distribution, as well as their body hair,thus creating a more feminine figure and appearance.

This Ad Campaign Manages To Insult Single Women, Men, And Moms All At Once. With Shoes.

Where do I even begin? “Starter husband?” Implying stay-at-home moms have “the weeks off” once their kids start the school year? Treating men as if they’re prey for cunning female hunters, looking to bag a man and have his head metaphorically mounted over a fireplace as some symbol of social status and prowess? And just when I thought it couldn’t be any worse, turns out it was A-OK’d by their senior vice president of marketing, Erika Szychowski, who said, and I quote, “My gut tells me it’s not offensive.”

Ugh. Gag me.

Oh, thank you. A checklist. I’m surprised they didn’t include “condom with a pinhole” as the fourth item.

Woooo! Those kids are on the bus, and I’ve got hours and hours to watch my stories and pop bonbons. You so understand my life, Nine West!

Kirsten Powers and others who’ve read the Google ‘anti-diversity’ memo slam hysterical media coverage

Now that the author of the infamous “anti-diversity” memo that reportedly compelled some women at Google to stay home from work has been fired and the deceptive headlines have been written, maybe the media could take a breather and, you know, read the actual memo?

The Federalist was among those outlets republishing the complete text of the memo that reportedly violated Google’s code of conduct.

If You Tell This Dude To 'Man Up,' You Better Be Prepared To Learn Why What You Said Is Awful

We often talk about how the media treats women horribly in this country, but we also often lose sight of the way media pigeonholes men to reinforce all those horrible attitudes. In this amazing video, an artist named Guante explains how what hurts women can also damage men.

NSFW warning: He uses some pretty coarse language at the beginning, but I promise it’s worth staying to the end. At 1:25, he calls out the media for hurting girls and women. At 2:10, he calls out the media for hurting boys and men. And at 3:15, he gets to the point.


If you think dudes should be allowed to express feelings, you could Like Guante on Facebook. And you could share this. Your call.

FACT: Once A Month Women Are Totally Distracted By Their … What?

Did I say “fact”? Sorry, I meant “annoying stereotype perpetuated by the media.”

Thinking like this is a slippery slope toward that annoying school of thought that says “ladies can’t be president because once a month they’re crippled by normal biological functions and emotions and stuff, tee-hee!” Carefree isn’t getting any of my money until they learn that there’s more to me than yoga and men.

10 exceptional women you’ve never heard of are being recognized in a very special way.

Every now and then, we hear about people in the world who are taking their ideas to the next level.

Unsurprisingly, a lot of them are women.

GIF from 2013 Golden Globe Awards.

They have passion, they take risks, and they are doing whatever it takes for their communities to reach their full potential because they know they can.

They are badasses to the extreme.

These are women who see families struggling in their city, so they start an organization to donate diapers to those in need.

These are women who’ve experienced a traumatic injury, so they started a foundation for children in similar situations to participate in sports.

They’re women who are providing shelter for homeless veterans. They are building programs for women recovering from addiction and abuse. They are developing breakthrough technology to better detect breast cancer.

They are 15 years old. They are 60 years old. They are mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, teenagers and L’Oral Paris is honoring them.

In its very special 10th year, L’Oral Paris’ program Women of Worth is serving as a platform to recognize some of the hardworking and compassionate women who are serving their communities and leading the way toward a bigger and brighter future.

Every year, 10 women are honored with the Women of Worth award of $10,000 to support their causes and community efforts.

Past honorees have been summed up quite well with this one sentence (and it doesn’t even cover all of them!):

“Without these women, 48 childhood cancer research grants would not exist, 1.8 million diapers would not be given to families in need and more than 100 kids may have died from undiscovered heart conditions.”

Life-changing.

It must be hard to choose from among all the women doing so much good in the world. With over 6,000 submissions this year, let’s just say the judges had their hands full when it comes to selecting the 2015 honorees.

Celebrate these incredible ladies and this year’s 2015 Women of Worth honorees by reading their stories and voting for the 2015 National Honoree to receive an additional $25,000 toward her cause!
