It is amazing to live in such a bright future.
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.
Capece is accused of altering a form to say that the patient gave his consent, while Garaffa performed the procedure without checking that the man wanted the operation, the court heard.
Both doctors were found guilty on misconduct charges, the outlet reported.
I’m glad that they are being punished.
As a man, I can say that there is no higher offense than a man having his vagina removed.
