Watch this video of sex reassignment surgery from male-to-female, it’s far more complex than simply removing the penis. This video shows a surgeon opening up the scrotum, removing the testicles, and removing the head of the penis (hello, nerve endings) to create a clitoris. The shaft and the scrotum are then used to create the labia and vaginal canal that will allow a lot of patients to have a perfectly healthy and great sex life. Obviously, these are only the surgical changes and additional hormone therapy is necessary for a variety of other changes in the body, but watching a little animated hand transform one biological gender to another is truly fascinating. Hopefully by the time the surgery is hailed as a success, the world’s view of transgender people has improved as well.
