Is there anything you feel so strongly about that you would sacrifice your genitals for the cause?

How far does the courage of your convictions go?

I’m not so sure about that. Maybe if one of my family members (the ones I truly care for), loved ones, etc were going to be summoned to death for something and I had the chance to change that by giving up my “precious parts” (which would be a weird sacrifice for someone to give me) but other than that. Not really.

Good sex every time.

@Garebo So wait… good sex without genitals… (* head explodes *)

@The_Compassionate_Heretic You just made me laugh so hard.

This is a really difficult question. Despite my many hobbies and interests, my desire to learn as much as possible and my love of life, the loss of my genitals would dull my existence to the point of suicide.

Or so I believe.

I would give them up for my kids lives or something, I’m not sure how I’d urinate without it though, but there is no cause or anything I feel strongly enough about that I’d give it up.

Again, as with the previous (very similar) question…my daughter. I’d give up my penis, both my legs, my arm…just as long as I could still be healthy enough to take care of her. Giving up both arms might pose a problem in the future though.

I have absolutely no emotional attachment to my genitals. I really wish they’d go away.

Zendo's avatar

LOL…As much trouble as they have gotten me into, I would not part with them for anyone.

My genitals, being internal, are an integral part of my body and it would be very difficult to sever them from me without also damaging other essential organs. So, the question becomes whether there is anything that I feel so strongly about that I would sacrifice my life or livelihood for. The answer to that is probably yes, for predictable things like my loved ones or my kids (but not for conceptual things like freedom).

@MacBean you don’t count :P
how come you haven’t had an operation yet?

Facade's avatar

I’d sacrifice anything for my religious beliefs.

MacBean's avatar

@Jack79: I have so many other health issues that need to be taken care of first. I’m not yet to a point where I feel like I’m going to kill myself if I don’t transition. So it’s kind of on the back burner.

I haven’t found a cause which is that important yet. If and when I do, you’ll be the first to know about it but I won’t disclose the details of how I seperated my genitals from my body.

I donated my only prostate to medical science a couple of weeks ago. I left it in a bio-hazard dish at the hospital.

Pol_is_aware's avatar

One of my strongest convictions is that no one should have to give up their genitals.

filmfann's avatar

Sure. All they do is get me in trouble.

DeanV's avatar

Maybe If I was retired, already had kids, and was in a healthy marriage. Now, though, no way.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

I already gave up my foreskin for some obscure reason when I was an infant, and it wasn’t even voluntary. What remains are mine until the end of my time on earth.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

Nope. I’m not done with them yet.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@jbfletcherfan thanks for that, you just made me smile, and if I could give you eight more GAs, I would.

NaturalMineralWater's avatar

Worst. Hypothetical. Ever.

dynamicduo's avatar

Nope. Do my breasts count as genitals?

jbfletcherfan's avatar

No, they don’t.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@NaturalMineralWater not quite, I’m sure there was at least one other one that was even worse. Something about putting in your will if someone could have sex with your dead body. That one was pretty bad.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra Yes, I remember that one. That WAS bad. Ugh!

filmfann's avatar

But one of the funniest Sam Kenison bits ever.

troym333's avatar

If god told me too, I would do it. For I am a christian and sometimes god must get his way. No matter how good I am.

I wish I was in heaven right now

cyn's avatar

I wouldn’t do that!

NaturalMineralWater's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra True, but my point wouldn’t have been taken with the appropriate finality were I to say “Second to worst. Hypothetical. Ever”. xD

wundayatta's avatar

If it was the only way to keep my guinea pig alive, sure.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@daloon that guinea pig must be pretty special!

wundayatta's avatar

@jbfletcherfan Maybe not as special as you are, but still…..
