Free whitepaper: Prosthetic Penises in the Data Centre Swedish transsexual men will as of 1 January next year be able to avail themselves of free prosthetic penises courtesy of their local health authorities - a move designed to offer former women the same kind of gender-bending support previously enjoyed only by their ex-bloke …

    strapadictomy

    "strapadictomy" - you had me snorting out loud at that one - very good! And then again when I realized the pronunciation of the last part. How do we get a new word made official?

    The thumbs down, because, well, that's all the poor chaps get.

    the strapadictomy initiative

    transsexual men were getting "the short end of the stick"

    Brilliant. You owe me a new keyboard.

    Before someone accuses me of being an unfeeling sod, I have known several Transsexuals. M2F, and one F2M.

    I am proud to count one of the F2M transsexuals, as a close friend.

    Paris, because my friend is much better looking than that talentless strumpet.

    Come on, Swedes

    I think transsexuals deserve mechanically working genitals, as a "strong and reliable glue bond", while nice to have, is surely not on the Truly Desirable List.

    re: Strapadictomy

    Sadly, it's already official. Google it: it's a route on Froggatt Edge put up by (IIRC) John Allen in the mid-70's. A homage to the original ascent can be seen in the legendard Hard Grit video.

    No IT angle, obviously :-)

    For goodness sake people, the word strapadictomy has been around for at least 20 years....

    Strapadictomy?

    I'd always heard it as an "Addadictomy"!

    Mines the trench with extra deep pockets for my new appendage!

  16. Chris G Silver badge

    Strapadictomy was

    In use in the sixties when I was a teenager, so it is probably much older than that.

    It is good to see that Britain is not the only country that needs a common sense injection.

    How the hell can anyone realistically view a prosthetic dick on a transsexual as a sex toy?

    Wankers!

    @Get with the program....

    To my knowledge strapadictomy has been around for at least 40 years.

    btw, does anyone else have a problem working out if a transsexual man was a real man and is now a fake woman or was a real woman and is now a fake man?

    Free Dick

    In the recent US election John McCain repeatedly warned of the dangers of socialised medicine, if he'd known about this his head would have exploded! Palin's eye tic would have gone into overdrive. I'm sure the Republicans will raise it when the new administration eventually gets around to trying to implement health care reform.

    Sterilisation?

    I remember an article in Cosmopolitan Mag, 20+ years ago about vibrators.

    A doctor wrote in Cosmo pompously, "One should never put anything unsterilsed into the vagina"

    To which a female wag wrote "How do I sterilise a penis? Boil it?"

    Do Fake Breasts Lactate

    They've got erection problems? Welcome to men's world!

    None of the "replacement parts" people get during a sex change function like the real thing. Breasts don't lactate, don't feel and often don't look like the real ones, reproductive organs are useless for reproduction, vaginas don't moisten like they should... Nothing new here, really.

    > transexual men and women are not 'fakes

    Most "real" men and women can reproduce with a suitable partner of the opposite sex.

    No amount of mashing up your genitalia is going to give a male to female transexual a womb etc and so on. Maybe "fake" is a bit strong, but these people haven't really changed their "sex". If changing their outward appearing sex makes them happier fair enough, but making out that they have somehow reversed how they formed in the womb is a bit silly.

    Sorry as a M2F transexual I disagree with that, I am a woman always have been just have a little cosmetic problem that needs sorting out. there is nothing FAKE about transexuals either way...

    I stand corrected, or erected...whichever.....

    Actually, it was Frimley Park hospital in Surrey. One of my kids was born there, dammit! (Henry William Herschel Crofts). He made it.

    Now, I must go home with a leg of smoked Elk in my back pocket of my green Barbour. Other pocket conceals my eeePC. Honest.

    And women who cannot give birth are not real women either? A man without spooge is not a real man?

    There are (IIRC) 27 different medical categories of human sexuality. Male and Female are just two.

    Oh now lets have some. There is a classification of women that are XY. There were born XY and developed as female do to lack of DHT during pregnancy. SO are they not women ?? Never known the life of a male.

    And get erecting ones? It can't be that much more expensive once you've gone to the trouble of saying you'll provide one at all. Now for the appropriate term for the...wankers.
