TABLOID: Girls as young as ONE 'forced to have sex change operations in India'
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 27th June 2011

Posted on 06/27/2011 11:17:18 AM PDT by Mount Athos

Girls as young as one are being forced into sex change operations in India by parents desperate for a son.

Surgeons in the city of Indore are reported to be 'converting' hundreds of girls a year, who are pumped full of hormone drugs.

A report in the respected Hindustan Times newspaper said the 'shocking, unprecedented trend, catering to the fetish for a son, is unfolding at conservative Indore's well-known clinics and hospitals on children who are one to five years old.

'The process being used to 'produce' a male child from a female is known as genitoplasty.'

Indian society places a strong value on producing a son and heir, with daughters often seen as an expensive burden to be married off.

Sex determination tests during pregnancy are illegal in India to try to prevent the common practice of women choosing to abort female foetuses.

In some states such as Punjab the ratio of women to men has dropped as low as seven to ten.

Wealthy parents from Delhi and Mumbai are reportedly flocking to Indore, a city in the centre of India, for the relatively low cost £2,000 treatment to surgically 'correct' their daughters.

Parents have allegedly pressed for the surgeries despite being told by doctors that the 'converted' male would be infertile.

The procedure involves doctors 'building' a penis using tissue from female organs, with the child then being fed hormonal medicine.

Seven genitoplasty experts in Indore boasted each of them had turned 200 to 300 girls into 'boys' so far, with only one being older than 14, the legal age of consent to such an operation.

Another Indore paediatric surgeon performing the procedure, Dr Brijesh Lahoti, said, 'In India, there is no problem in performing these surgeries as only the consent from parents and an affidavit is required.

Desperate? Don't they breed like rabbits over there? (1.21 billion people). Plenty of sons in most families. And unlike China, there are no per family restrictions in India. ...at least not that I know of.

But that aside, this is one of the sickest things I've ever read.

Here's my experience in life. Females really are expensive assets, but every one has had a very positive influence on me (grandmother, mother, wife, daughter).

My Grandmother, who first exposed me to astronomy, used to say: "A son is a son until he takes a wife. A daughter is a daughter for the rest of your life."

Sure will be a surprise when menarche arrives
Or are they doing hysterectomy/oopherectomy
as well as lifelong testosterone administration.

I bet there will a lifetime of pain
for these “corrected” children

And about those male heirs...
Do they really believe there will be grandchildren?

Which is worse — the parents who subject their daughters to this, or the medical professionals who do the job?

you think that is sick. Think about how much it cost them to perform this surgery in a country that the citizen doesn't make all that much money.

My question is how many are killed in order too make room for another attempt?

Does that mean a male organ transplant complete with the testicals? Anyone heard of adoption over there?

I’ll ping it in a bit. Ultra hatefully repulsive.

Beyond vile.

And, btw, this is entirely sinful and any religious Hindus would be totally opposed to this.

Not sure why this is happening.

Just google

Inda Abortion Girls

and you’ll see India (right up there with China) is the world leader in aborting girls. And if they don’t abort them, they are outright killed soon after birth.

The dark side of Hinduism.

I will say this for the Muslims. Despite the innumerable deplorable acts they do, and there’s too many to list, they DON’T do this. I doubt it’d ever occur to them.

Truly sick.

The US, with EIGHT times the abortion rate of India, in a population ONE-FOURTH the size of India's, has little moral standing on this issue, IMO.

Sick, bipedal animals. That "doctor" deserves to be executed.

Well, I'm fairly sure the USA rate of sex-change operations is comparable to that of India.

There are certain differences of course: (1) some of the Indian operartions are performed on small children (this is extra-repugnant, and something I've never heard of here) and (2) theirs seem to be motivated by a preference for sons,while ours are motivated by the mental confusion of people who believe that gender is a play-doh concept that can be pinched and squooshed into anything yuou want (the "gender preference" idea comon in the LGBTQUEERLOOFAH community, now being promoted everywhere via tranny gender-equity propaganda.)

I wonder if India has artificial insemination and IVF clinics that cater predominently to Lesbians who wish to become pregnant with daughters, not sons?

Our societies are about equally sick, I would argue, in different ways.

This disgusting insanity has nothing - absolutely nothing - to do with Hindu religion. It is human evil that is the cause. People from various religions may use “religion” as a cloak to do evil. Actual religious Hindus with even a modicum of understanding or sincerity would never consider this vicious and unnatural cruelty.

I know......witness the (presumably) Muslim village elder and his sons saving the life of a hapless Israeli from the hands of a Palestinian lynch mob. Religion was irrelevant to this brave man, and his sons; what mattered to him was that another persons life was in danger, and he wouldn’t stand by passively and just watch.

Its not religion. Its culture. In this case, Indian culture prefers male offspring, mostly for economic reasons. But you’d think that it’d occur to someone that a catastrophic gender imbalance is about 20 years over the horizon.

There was a very interesting show on PBS about the E German doping scandals for the Olympics.

Basically the Germans discoverd a lot of the steriod drugs and fed them to their young atheletes, converting them into sexually very confused people. If we had any truth in science today, there would be lots of research on this to examine its effects on homosexuality - a lot of them became homosexuals - and they also died from cancers and such.

Ha! Just found the full show on the website.

Secrets of the Dead - Doping for Gold

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/secrets/episodes/doping-for-gold-2/42/

However, that subject, along with global warming and evolution - it’s deadly for the scientist to take the “unapproved” side.

An heir? For someone who can't procreate?

OK, God, stop the world. I want to get off already.

Forcing females to dress in long flowing garments that restricts their movement is a form of slavery. Just my 2 cents worth.

We had our civil rights movement in the 60’s, and now we import more slavery into America. It is idiotic.

As some1 who was born in India, this news is sensational. India had laws against homosexuality until 2009. If I’m not mistaken India has laws against sex change mutilations/maimings. The press tends to write about bad things & most Indians Hindu,,Christian, Jewish (there are Indian Jews), Jain Sikh, Moslem would find mutilating a girl to make her an artificial boy horrible. Hopefully you won’t generalize about all based on what some assholes did. While there are those who prefer boys to girls (such as in rural places, the vast majority of Indians of all faiths don’t represent what you read.
