    If a man went into the woods, and lost his penis and ball sac in a baking accident, would he still be a man? If the answer is yes, then doesn't that mean the penis and ball sac is not what made him a man?

    A man (or woman) is more than a sum of their parts. Manhood is part of a person's identity and that doesn't change even if something destroys his genitalia.

    A trans man is a man even though he wasn't born with or may never have his own penis and testicles. Just as a trans woman is a woman even if she doesn't possess ovaries and a uterus. Our gender is deeper than our genitalia.

    Thanks for the vote, BibiLife. I know I should recognize your avatar but I can't get past instead seeing it as Carla Gugino.

    To AudryLeigh:
    That is more up to the witch than you, but if I had to guess, taking her beans would be a start.

    To Mike300:
    RE: character and word of honour
    I don't disagree at all, but I can't help in my mind think there is no difference of gender in those words.
    I confess a guilty pleasure to really enjoying DC's Legends of Tomorrow when they say things like, "Woman the ship while we're gone." OR "Pussy Up!, don't whine about it."

    Bornunderabadsign is to the point saying, "Our gender is deeper than our genitalia." which I know everyone realized that is what I was really saying, even if it was from an eye in the back of your head winking sort of way.
