They Removed His Vagina

Sadly, this headline is not from The Onion or the Babylon Bee. It really, really happened in Great Britain. 

Here is the headline, via Ace of Spades (via Maggie’s Farm):
Doctors suspended for removing transgender man's vagina without consent

Here is the story:

Two doctors had their licenses suspended after removing a transgender man's vagina in London without his consent, according to a report.

Dr. Marco Capece and Dr. Giulo Garaffa were found guilty in connection to the irreversible procedure on a transgender man -- who didn't discover until a week after the October 2016 surgery that his vagina was removed, Metro UK reported Tuesday.

The patient, who wasn’t identified, said that he went in for two other procedures in his gender assignment process -- a hysterectomy and a metoidioplasty, an operation that gave him a penis.

But he claims he never consented to the third procedure -- a vaginectomy -- that he received at Highgate Private Hospital.

Sad to say it, but you can’t make this stuff up.

They had to remove it, he had sand in it.
