“Sometimes I can't comprehend that all this happened to me.”
These are not scientists doing medicine, they are sorcerors selling magic.
This should not have happened. Thank you for bringing Shape Shifter’s ordeal to light.
I first heard about castration in my adolescence. It was something males just didn’t like to think about, being the worst thing that could ever happen to a guy, losing his manhood. It was often termed “a fate worse than death.”
How grotesque that some young males are now eager to be castrated and lose their ability to procreate, to never again be able to have relations with a woman. Yeah, I know, many are gay, but they’re being fed an outrageous lie that they’re actually women, so the damage is psychological as well.
According to Shape Shifter his apparent "feminine" aspects were what was drawing the negative reactions. Hatred of what is considered female is an underlying problem especially when it turns up in the "wrong" context i.e. exhibited by a male. Some men seem to think that being a woman has no integrity in itself; that anyone can appropriate women's identity with impunity and no consequences as far as women having the political and social support to quash such identity theft. And they're right. Impersonating any other ethnic group is met with hostility and ostracized. But for Impersonating women accolades are given and Presidents (Biden and Obama) will hire them for high office. Misogyny is that deeply entrenched. Shape Shifter wasn't a child when he made his decision to expropriation a women's identity; although he would have to be aware of the repercussions it would have for women by destroying their privacy in vulnerable spaces, their ability to compete in sports, their scholarships, their inclusion quotas, statistics for crime, health, economics and much else effecting women's ability to participate equally in life with dignity and freedom. Shape Shifter would also be deceiving heterosexual men with his duplicitous female performance for his own sexual gratification, which he says is one of his goals. This unethical behavior is accepted when it's done by transgenders, but would be swiftly condemned if done by others and might be labeled "rape by deception".
I know surgeons cannot be faint of heart, but even if you totally believed in the ideology of this stuff the sort of slicing up you have to do to carry out these surgeries seems like it would give you pause unless... you liked it. I would really be interesting to see a psychological survey of the surgeons in this subspecialty.
