Pinko’s show made a reference to Gavin’s “hairball” tweet that we posted, where he says that post-op transexuals suffer from hairballs in the created cavity because surgeons use scrote tissue. (It’s verified and true.)
Some keen observers objected to the article for calling the surgically created area a “vagina.”
Being the dope I am I started a discussion with someone and played devil’s advocate.
I started out by saying that when someone loses a leg, the prosthetic is not really a leg. It’s a fake leg. A glass eye is not an eye, it’s a glass eye. No one says “he was poked in the eye” when they have a glass eye. They say, “he was poked in his glass eye.”
A merkin is not pubic hair, it’s… oh, you get the idea.
But then I played the other side of the fence. What if you were born without an ear and doctor’s made an ear out of your other body parts, would you keep calling it your “fake ear” or just “your ear.”
I think it would be an ear.
But does that mean you can create a female-looking genital region out of other parts of your body and legitimately call it a vagina?
Based on the ear example, why not?
(Wow, is that a great set-up for a joke, or what?)
Basically, this thread is about why a surgically made “vagina” is not really a vagina, or, to get all Steven Crowder, “A surgically created vagina is not a real vagina. Change my mind.”
