Doctors report success in penis transplant for injured veteran

Short of death, it is perhaps the combat injury most feared by servicemen who have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan: a blast that robs him of his genitals.

For one such wounded warrior, a real shot at renewed sexual health and happiness has come with a transplanted penis, scrotum and lower abdominal wall. The transplant, which also included many of the nerves, muscles and blood vessels that serve those organs, is described in Thursday’s edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.

The recipient is a young serviceman who lost his penis, scrotum, both testes and most of both legs when he stepped on a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

Now, roughly 19 months after his penis transplant, the veteran can urinate while standing up on his prosthetic legs and enjoys what his doctors at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine described as a “strong stream.” He also has normal sensation on both the shaft and the tip of his new penis, near-normal erections and can achieve orgasm.

For the rest of his life, the man will almost certainly take anti-rejection medication, making him more vulnerable to infections, kidney problems and certain cancers. And he cannot father biological children: Ethical considerations forbade the transfer of testes, which would have generated semen bearing the DNA of his deceased donor.

The current culture deviated radically from previous human experience, ruthlessly reducing each woman and man to mere political units to be manipulated, balkanizing them into communities according to their likes and dislikes, so everything from cars to candy bars could be more effectively marketed, robbing them of their privacy, denying them both a real community of diverse views and the possibility of personal evolution by censoring the world they saw through the Internet to make it conform to the preferred beliefs of their self-appointed betters. - Dean Koontz

or pissing?
“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

This story is like the perfect intersection on feminazis' hatred for anything that benefits men sexually and feminazis' Prog-hatred for the US military.
