How do doctors turn a penis into a vagina?

We first saw this incredible video on Cosmopolitan's website, and we decided to find out a bit more about what was going on in the animation, which demonstrates a surgical technique described by a team of urologists at the University of Tübingen in Germany. Plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Alter, who has practices in both New York and Beverly Hills, explains on his website how he does the procedure. First, patients have to undergo electrolysis treatments to permanently remove their pubic hair so it doesn't grow inside the vagina. Surgeons remove the testicles, then turn the head of the penis into the clitoris, since they actually develop from the same embryonic cells. "A portion of the glans (head of the penis) with its nerve supply is converted into the clitoris," Alter writes. Men Just Don't Trust Women.

Rebecca Solnit Takes on Male Literary Crybabies in “Men Explain Lolita to Me”

After all, she’s the one who coined the term in her now-classic 2008 essay “Men Explain Things to Me.” It appears that since then, need for the term hasn’t decreased at all. Men continue to explain why her opinions are wrong—treating their own tenuous opinions as fact—as she explains and illustrates in her recent essay, “Men Explain Lolita to Me.”

What’s kind of hilarious is that this essay on being mansplained to is the product of an essay she wrote in response to a piece in which men were being mansplained to.

Disney Princesses Are My (Imperfect) Feminist Role Models / Boing Boing

The Internet rejoiced at news that another Disney princess is on the way sooner than expected. Moana, Disney’s upcoming film about an ancient Polynesian princess exploring her Oceanic home, will now hit theaters in 2016 instead of 2018. The fan response was enthusiastic.

Others celebrated the fact that Moana will become the fifth Disney princess of color and the first of Polynesian descent. Indignés par des passages du Coran, alors qu'on leur lit la Bible.

A girl by herself in Rome, and comments from male law enforcement. Over 10 million tourists are expected to visit Rome during the Holy Year of Mercy.

Thanks to the writings of John Gray, many of us now know some of the “Mars/Venus” generalizations such as men typically use language as a tool for solving problems while women use it as a way to promote intimacy. Indeed, while other gender stereotypes might be valid, such as it’s easier for women to define intimate relationships with men as non-sexual than vice-versa, individual differences among people will always provide exceptional cases. Thus, some women might have a more “masculine” approach to heterosexual friendship than average and some men might relate to friends in a more stereotypically “feminine” manner than most.
