Reading comprehension isn't exactly a trait these days, is it?

That's awfully young to be getting married, isn't it?

And I expect all those who go screaming "If you're XY you're a dude!" to come into the thread full chastened and admitting the error of their ways. I also expect to get a $8 million/yr contract to play for the Cubs by the end of the day.

I'm in the WNBA, so I'm getting quite a kick out of your reply.

Not to be mean or rude, but wouldn't you know before your that age that you have male parts i mean does she not have Penis or does she and if she does, then does she have boobs as well. This article has not much to go on.

She has AIS. Everyone would think she was a woman without a doubt. AIS women have no masculine features at all. No body hair , no skeletal changes. They are nearly perfect. She has 2 or 3 times the male level of testosterone but her body is "immune" to it. So all the t converts to estrogen. No T no penis. Everyone is default female without testosterone. Eventually the testes burn out and go cancerous so they are usually removed in young adulthood The female internal organs dont develop because the testes also release another hormone called MIS or AMH. This supresses their development. Its possible to have a defect here too and have men with a uterus.

Id much rather have AIS than what I have.

Yeah, having balls will do that to you.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Androgen_insensitivity_syndrome

She's male, but her testicles never descended, and she never developed into a male fetus due to her insensitivity to testosterone. The testicles (which either drop, or become ovaries) just kind of stuck around inside of her

If this is really AIS then why is the court even involved at all?
 
2010-04-24 08:10:28 AM
The writer of the article is obviously squeamish about the subject matter. This article appears to contain about 5% of the story. Either that or the editor used a chainsaw instead of a scalpel.

Wait! I apologize for inferring that there might actually be a news outlet that has editors anymore.

Your use of that metaphor in this context made me cringe.

The "wait what" headline thing is pandering and stupid. Can we please drop this pathetic device as beneath the humor-finding abilities of your average third grader? This is FARK after all.

See, I'm glad you put that "wait what" in that headline subby because I would not normally have caught the joke because most young girls have testicles (or so I thought). Again, thanks for the headsup. Now can you please tell me how to cut these stars out of construction paper and glue them onto this nifty posterboard? Please be advised that my mommy does not let me use real scissors. I have to use safety scissors.

My question exactly. Unless she and her parents were fighting over the surgery, wouldn't this be between them and their doctor? WHy do they need the state's permission?

Probably some kind of mandatory check on gender surgery being performed on a minor. Not the worst idea, since it's an irreversible procedure and in most (decent) jurisdictions the courts shouldn't go against a doctor's recommendation that (eg) a genuinely transgendered youth be allowed to begin transitioning.

I have a good friend with AIS. I grew up with her, in fact. We went to school together from kindergarten through high school. I even took her to the freshman homecoming dance. I didn't know about her AIS until we were in our 30s. Yep, genetically male but so convincingly female that I didn't know about it for over 25 years.

Does testosterone immunity kill their sex drives?

To have to apply to a court to get a procedure done such as this, is more sickening to me than the condition.

This is NOT a 'sex change' operation; that I'd understand the need for permission and hopefully it's promptly denied, but a medical need of sorts. I mean, if a female has hung vag lips, it's covered to have them 'trimmed'. I knew a girl once. -blah blah blah- Same thing here imho.

"Hey doc, I've a tumor."
"Send in your court application."
 
2010-04-24 09:21:35 AM
Ok, thanks to the info in this thread I actually understand what is going on with this girl, with her AIS.

All the article says is that she has "rare XY genotype" that is so rare that only 50% of the worlds population has it.
 
2010-04-24 09:43:27 AM
The feminists must love that the bar for being a girl has been lowered to "broken, deformed male."

I'm surprised to see people trolling this thread. It's early on a Saturday morning and the average farker is sucking on the cock of that stupid Caturday crap. There simply isn't going to be enough traffic to this story and thread to catch many fish with your underhanded comments.

And the other link on that AIS article to micropenis will reduce your semi even more.

they discovered their daughter had a rare XY genotype

I didn't realize men were rare.
 
2010-04-24 10:22:06 AM
But the only important question that needs to be answer is:

IS SHE HOT?
