When I was little, I thought there was something wrong with me because I didn’t have a penis. I was raised with three step brothers, so this was understandable.

But now that I’m grown up, I’m really glad I don’t have one. Looking back, when they all had fights, it was basically a contest to see who could hit the other in the balls first. As soon as that happened, the fight was over. That’s how vulnerable balls are, and I learned that quickly.

I may not be able to pee standing up. But having no penis has so many advantages, it’s worth it.
