Oh well, as long as people want to give I suppose. Her gofundme is nearing 20 thousand dollars (initial goal was 15 thousand).

Woman Born Without a Vagina Is Fundraising for Surgery That Would Allow Her to Have Sex - Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome
Thank God someone has the compassion to help this woman.

Why did you even post this? If you don't like it, don't contribute.

Why is this under the politics thread? There is nothing controversial about this. If you want to donate go ahead if not scroll on by.

I've seen gofundme's for people's weddings...just because. Like, they wanted to have a big wedding but didn't have enough money, so they are asking complete strangers on the internet to give them more money so their wedding can be elaborate. Hardly any gofundme surprises me.

Shrug. The woman reached out. If people want to donate, that is up to them. Their money their choice.

This should be covered by insurance. It is a pretty serious defect.

Why does anyone feel this is any of their business?

There was a contestant on Survivor a few years ago with this condition. She had a vagina but no uterus.

This would be an incredibly difficult condition to live with. I'm sure it's a bit humiliating to have to crowd fund, but nobody is forcing anyone to donate.

What about a bionic one.

Did the bionic woman have a bionic one.

Seriously though I wish the lady all the best, and hope the fund raising and operation are succesful.

That's different. Lots of women have no uterus, eventually. Still can have a normal life.

Maybe that should be the slogan for all the men with erectile dysfunction-ADOPT A PUPPY. or all the couples seeking fertility treatment-ADOPT A PUPPY.

But we all know men's sexual gratification is of the upmost importance and overshadows a woman's desires.
