Fast on the heels of the Trans community in the social political realm of surgical gender body modification is the MTE (Male To Eunuch) community. Formerly isolated MTEs (non-transgender males who have their testicles removed electively), “Nullo” and “Smoothies” (non-trans males who have both testicles and penis removed for a smooth completely genital-less appearance*) have formed strong communities since the advent of the internet and are becoming increasingly activist in lobbying for medical/surgical services that are currently offered only to those males who have a conflicted “internal gender identity”. MTE’s say the fact that they retain their male identity should not limit their access to the same medical and surgical services offered to transgender males with genital dysphoria.

Nullos and MTE’s often seek castration and penectomy from surgeons in Thailand and India, and a few SRS providers in the US who have been willing to forgo the Harry Benjamin Standards of Care which were set up for MTF and FTM clients, but not for MTE’s who cannot meet their requirements (such as living in the opposite sex’s social gender role for a year) simply because they have no interest in undergoing social gender reassignment. Some US states allow chemical castration and Texas allows voluntary surgical castration for criminal sex offenders but not to lawful citizens which MTE’s assert is unfair.
Many MTE’s and “smoothies” report wanting to remove their genitals since early childhood, and some seek out desperate remedies for their surgical desires, either attempting self-castration, or seeking out the illegal services of “cutters”: self-styled underground surgeons who will perform castrations and penectomies in hotel rooms using substandard dirty equipment, often with tragic results.
Why do MTEs and Nullos want to be castrated? Their narratives vary, from a typical one here: “ I became a eunuch because I had an overwhelming desire to be castrated. I started out cutting my scrotum and for a few years, I never considered castration, but somewhere along the way, my desire/fantasy changed and I couldn’t stop thinking about getting castrated. I couldn’t control the desire and finally got castrated. It wasn’t to control my sex drive, it was a desire I couldn’t control, I’d go to bed thinking about it and wake up thinking about it. Maybe my desire for castration was a result of sexual frustration or maybe it was my way of finding some sort of weird sexual satisfaction, I don’t know, but I had to be castrated and finally was castrated. “
Other MTE’s and self described “Neuters” seek genital nullification or castration for the purported “Eunuch Zen” described as a feeling of peacefulness and calmness that occurs after the removal of one’s genitals. Some Nullos retain some sexual pleasure in the prostate area, some do not, and according to one report “Some of us who have had had total removal of the penis nonetheless experience almost perpetual arousal at times.”
There is a long history of MTEs through the ages, but only since the internet have MTEs Smoothies and Nullos been able to share voices worldwide. Talula of Eunuch.org says “We need, as a eunuch community, a medical way to say ‘Yes! I want to lose my testicles!’ without getting sexual reassignment surgery. People will do it themselves if there’s not an alternative,” he says. “I know. I know because I did it.”
(*Some Nullo purists contend a “true” Nullo undergoes nipple excision as well as castration and penectomy for total “smoothie” effect)
20 year old british model and actress Claudia Seye Aderotimi died Tuesday, hours after being injected with what investigators speculate was industrial grade silicone (the kind you get at home depot to grout your bathroom tiles with) in the buttocks by a fake doctor performing illegal plastic surgery in a Philadelphia hotel room. The young victim died of apparent silicone embolism to the lungs.
Police are seeking the suspect, transgender YouTube artist 41 year-old Padge Victoria Windslowe who goes by stage name Black Madam and is seen in the video from YouTube above. Warrants served at Windslowe’s apartment yesterday revealed multiple cell phones, multiple aliases and identification cards, and credit card in the name of Vanessa Brown, as well as syringes and silicone. “Windslowe juggled many identities. The cards found in the apartment on West Montgomery Ave. identified her as Tonya McClelland, Vanessa Brown, and Page Victoria Winslowe. In her neighborhood, everyone knew her as “Vicky.” The suspect identified themself to the victim as “Lillian Lang”. Windslowe “advertised buttock enhancement injections on her YouTube channel, according to court filings”. The advertisements have since been removed. According to the NYDailyNews “Windslowe’s Facebook page describes her as a “classically trained musician” who was also “the head of a lucrative ‘adult services company.’”
Illegal and dangerous black market silicone injecting is “a procedure that few if any doctors would recommend. Nevertheless, it remains popular in the nation’s transgender communities, where illegal “pumping parties” provide the chance for groups of people to get injections at somebody’s house, apartment or motel room.”
The victim, Claudia, was not transgender but an aspiring actress and model who had previously undergone the same procedure in November. Her ex-boyfriend said “After she had the injections last time, she told me she couldn’t take the pain and wouldn’t do it again. I never thought she would go back.” “When she first mentioned having surgery, I thought it was just a joke. We laughed about it and I never imagined it would end up being the cause of her death.” “she told me having the injections made her feel better about herself. Every girl has something they don’t like about their looks and she mentioned her bum a few times.”
The “APB alert” twitter was issued after the procedure was performed. The other links are to a photo of a feminized individual modeling their buttocks for the camera. “you better do it” BlackMadam comments.
Windslowe was also the founder of a “secret society” of transgender males called the “Ssshe Society”. I’ve included the text of their manifesto in the comments.

23 Year old porn star and German “Big Brother” reality show celebrity “Sexy Cora”, real name Carolin Ebert died after complications during her sixth breast augmentation surgery. She was having her size F implants increased to size G. From the Toronto Sun:
“She died on Thursday, nine days after going under the knife.
Two of the surgeons who performed the breast enhancement are now facing charges of negligent manslaughter.
Ebert’s husband tells a local newspaper, “The brain damage was too great. Her blood pressure dropped steadily, physiological functions gave out… then she went to sleep quietly.”
The model/actress previously hit the headlines in 2009 when she was hospitalized after attempting to set a new world record for the number of fellatios performed in 24 hours. She was forced to give up her goal of 200 after giving 75 men oral sex.”
This story http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1343025/Transsexual-refused-8-000-breasts-NHS-AFTER-60-000-gender-swap-surgery-wins-court-battle.html is hard to believe. A man who wanted breast implants received over $15,000. in free legal aid to force his shared primary care trust provider to divert $12,000. from cancer patients to pay for his breast augmentation. And he WON. He will now get the larger fake breasts he wanted, paid for by taxpayers. “‘Now I can get on with the rest of my life and stop spending days thinking about killing myself” said the unemployed man, “… friends have said I’m a lot happier and more relaxed.’

To the FTM woman who said : “Last time I checked, I couldn’t pick anything up with my breasts or walk down the street on my uterus. I’m perfectly fine without them. If you all want to hold on to those parts because you are female, then you should probably start having babies and breastfeeding because that’s what those parts are for.”
Your fantasy that women’s breasts ovaries etc. are purposeless beyond childbirth is a symptom of your self-hatred.
Women’s breasts are part of their lymphatic system, essential for cleansing the blood. And According to the Mayo Clinic, 20 to 60 percent of women will experience chronic pain after a mastectomy–a condition known as Post-Mastectomy Pain Syndrome (PMPS). Symptoms of this condition include pain in the chest wall, pain or itching in the shoulder or armpit, pain around the surgical scar and tingling down the arm.
Ovaries are part of the endocrine system which regulates hormones. Risk of cardiovascular disease following oophorectomy increases by 700%. Oophorectomy before the age of 45 is associated with a fivefold mortality from neurologic and mental disorders. Urinary incontinence frequently occurs as a byproduct of hysterectomy. If the vagina is retained, vaginal prolapse may occur from the removal of supporting structures, and normal lubrication is impaired. There is an increased risk of kidney cancer.
Your natural hormone balance is impaired. Males produce estrogen and progesterone as well as testosterone. Removal of estrogen and progesterone causes premature aging, as these are anti-aging hormones. This is also why FTMs experience male pattern baldness much more rapidly than men: not enough estrogen. Lack of estrogen causes levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, acetylcholine, norepinephrine, GABA and serotonin to decrease. Estrogen stimulates the release of growth hormone and may help prevent Alzheimer’s although research is preliminary on that point. Progesterone is a precursor to other adrenal hormones and promotes lipolysis (fat breakdown). It normalizes levels of blood sugar, zinc, and copper.
And this is only what we know at this point in time. New hormones and hormone byproducts are being identified all the time. Over 50 recognized at this time, and many precurse, stimulate, or inhibit others in a complex feedback system.
Not to mention that hormone injections cause peaks and drops in hormone levels and feedback networks unlike anything naturally experienced.
So those useless organs that you think females have are actually beautiful, elegantly designed, complex and important.
