(THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Sin Chew Daily reported that a Taiwanese woman was shocked when a gynaecologist told her that she had testicles.
The woman, 34, decided to consult a specialist after experiencing pain in her genital area.
It was her first time seeking treatment from a gynaecologist although she had never experienced menstruation in her life.
The check-up also showed that the woman did not have a uterus. When asked why she had not sought treatment or medical advice about her menstrual problem, the woman was lost for an answer.
If my aunt had balls, she would be my uncle.
In before the article is zotted!
Tell her to give them back to Barry...
that qualifies her to be secretary of state, or secretary of HHS, or even a supreme court justice!
“That`s a MAN baby, YEAH!”
“No uterus. No period. Testicles. My considered medical opinion is that you’re a dude.”

You owe me a Heimlich maneuver! Too funnny!!!
She’s one step ahead of Baraq.
Or a shemale. Look it up. Or better yet, don’t.
Why is that someone always steals my thunder?

Usually I claim the Post of the Day.
However this thread was soooo unusual that I hearby give it a new catagory, THREAD HEADLINE OF THE DAY.
Except I cannot imagine one coming close to it in doubletake magnitude for the next week.
My uncle used to love me, but she died.......
Shes one up on Boehnner and Mitch McConnell.
We sure notice when something snags, or we get too close to something.

Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome
Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, or AIS, is a genetic condition, inherited (except for occasional spontaneous mutations), occurring in approximately 1 in 20,000 individuals. In an individual with complete AIS, the bodys cells are unable to respond to androgen, or male hormones. (Male hormones is an unfortunate term, since these hormones are ordinarily present and active in both males and females.) Some individuals have partial androgen insensitivity.
In an individual with complete AIS and karyotype 46 XY, testes develop during gestation. The fetal testes produce mullerian inhibiting hormone (MIH) and testosterone. As in typical male fetuses, the MIH causes the fetal mullerian ducts to regress, so the fetus lacks uterus, fallopian tubes, and cervix plus upper part of vagina. However, because cells fail to respond to testosterone, the genitals differentiate in the female, rather than the male pattern, and Wolffian structures (epididymis, vas deferens, and seminal vesicles) are absent.
The newborn AIS infant has genitals of normal female appearance, undescended or partially descended testes, and usually a short vagina with no cervix. Occasionally the vagina is nearly absent. AIS individuals are clearly women. At puberty, the testes are stimulated by the pituitary gland, and produce testosterone. Because testosterone is chemically very similar to estrogen, some of the testosterone converts back to estrogen (aromatizes) in the bloodstream. This estrogen produces breast growth, though it may be late. Women with AIS do not menstruate, and are not fertile. Because the development of pubic and underarm hair, in women as well as in men, depends upon testosterone, most AIS women have no pubic or underarm hair, but some have sparse hair.
Formosa her life, she didn’t realize she had a problem.
Look at your average republican congressman.

Mason: You don’t like men much, do you?
Mason: Maybe you’re the kind who prefers women.
Lena: No. Women are even worse; they try to be like men, but they can’t cut it. I’d like to be a member of a third sex.
Mason: Third sex? Mmm-hmmm. Well, which article would you have - the one that goes in, or the one that goes out?
Mason: Well, which one would you favor?
Lena: Both. If I had both sex organs, I could just screw myself, couldn’t I? Well, couldn’t I?

Lena: Aren’t you going to finish your soup?

“The woman, 34, decided to consult a specialist after experiencing pain in her genital area. “
Hurts when they get hit, doesn’t it lady?
LOL The only way they'll know is to have 'em. Some of the worst pain ever.
I'm not a man, but I imagine from her situation (raised as a woman, never menstruated, never noticed any male genitalia, was informed by a doctor that she has no uterus but does have testicles) that the testicles were undescended.
Her situation is consistent with Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome.
I’m thinking quite a few of our Repubs need to see if they can find their long lost testicles as well.
She could move to the US and become an effective Republican candidate.
I hate when that happens.
"I just never felt very ... teste."
I guess he/she can decide what they want to be these days...
I thought there would be a more specific ping list for this kind of thing. :^)
The neutral gender of humans is female.
Female anatomy is internal. Male anatomy is external. If the male organs don’t form right and descend, a genetic male looks like a female.
So if the testes and penis fail to form correctly, you get what looks like a girl. Then its raised as a girl for most of human history. No uterus, no period. But with poor nutrition, genetic defects, chronic illness or hormonal abnormalities, lack of a period throughout life is not unknown for real women.
A baby in the US would be sonogrammed, genetically tested, and they say “Ok, kid has un-descended testes. If they don’t come down, we’ll do the surgery (cut a slit and pull it out).” The penis isn’t truly formed, just becomes a large head of the clitoris. And being a girl in Asia, it’s fairly certain that the family ignored medical issues because “it’s a girl”.
The testicles were probably undescended, one on each side of her vagina, but in the groin - unable to be felt or seen. She probably had pain like a hernia and undoubtedly thought it was something along those lines if she asked around.
As far as never having a period, well, I guess that would be her “normal.”
I think there was a song written about her.
When they stay inside your body and you don’t have a penis, either?
There are conditions where this happens, the child appears to all measures to be a girl, but the vagina is a blind pouch and the “ovaries” (which are really testes) have a tendency to become aggressively cancerous.
"I don't get it; you claim there are two types of [Terrans], male and female. Frankly, you all look alike to me."
"Oh, there's a vas deferens between us," Retief assured him.
By the way, I find your screen name singularly appropriate to this thread.
The juvenile posters won't want to read what you've written but thank you for posting it anyway.
