Well my mind is made up, I'm never going to a doctor again! That's some stress I just couldn't deal with .

Micro penis?... Wonder if he/she ever had a woman say (wow, and your feet are so big)....


The DNA reporting of the future, would it discover these issues, or does this only happen with chromosomal checking.

And I don't understand how we all start out as XX but then some go XY? Or are these everybody claims all about appearances on the outside?

The discovery must have put some lifelong questions at rest. Like where the hot flashes came from.

What is the point of this sort of posts though? We all know it's possible, it has happened before etc. Move along, people. It's not a freak show, s/he's a human being, save your pity.

I think that his micro "member" (for those with sensitive eyes..............) Is extremely relivant. Becaese if it is that small. (Small enough to be refered to a micro.. instead of just small, or tiny, they say micro) he might have had a hint that somthing isn't quite right (mabie never watched porn) however... Saying it isn't relevant being the sudden change in gender is total bs and I'm sure he finds his little-D relevant

Last I checked. Females don't urinate from their clit, and he might have noticed... This mysterious hole.....

BECAUSE HE IS 66 AND HE JUST LEARNED THAT HE IS IN METAPAUSE (spelling?) BEFORE LOOSING HIS V-CARD. (IS "HIS" Still the apropriate thing to call him?)

To me this is another example of the complexities involved and our overly simplified ideas of gender. Hormone production and regulation in the human body is extremely complex and we have yet to fully understand the implications and the insistence that we come in two genders and two genders only will have to be acknowledged.

I would also like to add that the idea that we should lie to keep this facade in tact is very telling and sad really. Are we really so fragile that we cannot allow ourselves to face the truth of how wonderfully complex we really are ?

anything can be simple, or complex. Woman and man... Got different parts... Simple as that. Now of course we think diff. Talk diff . Socialize diff. Pee diff. But when it comes down to it. It seems pretty simple.

It doesn't always happen overseas. There are many variations of chromosomal disorders all over the world. In the case of severe Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, citing this study done in Honolulu it occurs in 1 of 14,000. The milder forms seem to be quite a bit more common than that.

Could you clarify what "hole" you are referring to because I'm hoping you are not saying that women urinate through the vaginal opening.

Things like CAH are quite easy to confirm once they're detected these days.

You've touched on the exact problem.

The whole thing is seen as some kind hilarious joke. A perfectly ordinary adult will tell their child not to make fun of the poor person in the wheel chair and then login into ATS and scream, LOL micro PENIS! We're up to several pages on this thread, and you have to shovel through three or four posts at a time to find a serious relevant comment.

If this was doctors not telling patients about their cancer, or their fertility, or even their mental illness there would be outrage. If it was parents shaming a child into no discussing their inability to walk, you would be mildy annoyed ... but don't worry it's about a micro penis, and even the handicapped kid is laughing at this one!

Is a real great feeling to wake up in the morning and find out your biology is part of someones forum based stand-up routine.

Oh goodness no, just implying... If he had a clit, he might notice the mysterious other parts that would come with it. The clit is part of a package deal. And a equally mysterious lack of testis now that I think about it...

Well, some days later and into page 4, I suppose its up to me to suggest googling...

Prader stage IV

...instead of making a stupid "micropenis" joke.

Yeah, Life is full of wonders. And some folks are both sex - they are male on the outside but also carry ovaries. It's astounding, really.

Indeed Alfa, and to be honest I am surprised by the reactions of some in the face of something like this. How are we to move forward if every mention of genitals becomes an elementary school style giggle fest. I also think of the pressure on parents to designate a sex in the case of a newborn not for the overall health of the baby but to avoid the stigma involved in existing outside the acceptable designations of gender.
