(60)Can The New Advances in Obstetric and Gynaecological Surgery like Genital Repair Surgery and Surrogate Motherhood Be Used To Relieve Rape Victim’and those with Gender Identity problems of                         Social Stigma? Just a passing thought!(64)


This Subject of Gender Transformation Surgery may raise the curiosity of the readers, and make them wonder what has prompted the writing of it. As such, the Reason for thinking along this line is that the position of Rape Victims in our Society is so pathetic that it makes women, particularly Rape Victims, ashamed of and Curse their Violable body, and wish that they had been born as Men instead of Women.

It would have been good if an operation had been possible surgically to give, not only victims of rape but also the patients of genital damage due to other kinds of injury, the feel of a new, inviolable body in this very life. Hence some women (though not necessarily rape victims), as well as some men too, opt for Gender transformation/Reassignment of their Sexual Identity nowadays through surgery, not only due to genital damage but also on account of gender identity problems.

However, there is a doubt as to whether such surgery is possible, in the first place, in the case of genetically normally differentiated males and females also, or only in genetically bisexual or intersex people. For in some cases, such operations have been reported to have turned out to be unsuccessful. In that case, subjecting individuals at random to this kind of operation would be like casting the persons going in for it, particularly if done on the Rape victims and those with gender identity problems, who are already distressed, into a more embarrassing and agonising position, tantamount to throwing them ‘From The Frying Pan into The Fire’ !

Therefore, the Real way to IMPROVE the LOT of rape victims and women/men with. Gender Identity problems lies in the Improvement in Society’s attitude towards the rape victims and the Children born as a result of Rape, and those with Gender Identity problems for the sake of Humanity, as they are totally innocent and do not deserve the condemnation and isolation to which they are subjected to, in traditional societies. BESIDES THIS, A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF THEIR CARE IS THAT PSYCHOTHERAPY AND SOCIAL REHABILITATION SHOULD ALSO BE MADE AVAILABLE TO SUCH UNFORTUNATES TO BRING THEM OUT OF THEIR MENTAL AGONY !

In the case of rape victims, Surgical Treatment by Genital Repair Surgery, that is, repairing the Hymen of a Virgin, ‘Hymenorrhaphy’ in Medical terms,is also advocated to restore the semblance of virginity in order to prevent marital problems later, on that account, for rape victims.

In addition, in the cases of pregnancy which is not advanced beyond 20-24 weeks, preferably before the movements start, Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP), that is, Induced Abortion, SHOULD be allowed and done, as the rape victim’s right, without any opposition on moral or legal grounds, both for the sake of the hapless woman and her child to make her acceptance by society and her REHABILITATION easier !

If Abortion is not legally permissible due to ‘Moral considerations’ about the ‘Embryo’s or Foetus’s Right to Life, or due to delay in seeking abortion, then the embryo or foetus, as early as possible, should be transplanted by Govt. hospitals into authorised Surrogate Mothers, as is feasible with modern Obstetric Surgery, whereby the Embryo’s Right to Live can be protected by SURROGACY without Destroying the Life (in figurative sense) of its Biological Mother, viz. the Raped girl/woman, and of Girls cheated and abandoned by their Sexual partners after promising marriage! After all, the selfish, cruel males in the act, have contributed or lost only some sperms, which does not affect him at all. Then why should the poor exploited girls be forced by our society’s Pseudomoralists to sacrifice their flesh and blood to nurture their exploiter’s child Against Their Will? Instead, as the clever Portia did to defeat the wicked designs of the sly Merchant Shylock in the Shakesperian play , ‘The Merchant of Venice,’ to save her father’s life, justice would be done if all that a rape victim would have to lose, or get rid of, is an Ovum or an Embryo Vice a Sperm. No Flesh, nor Blood, nor her Selfrespect or Status!

(Actually, in view of it having become medically possible for men to harbour a foetus and go through pregnancy by making the necessary anatomical and hormonal changes in their body, with the help of the latest advances in Gender Transformation Surgery, the Best Punishment for Rapists and deserters, in the case of their victim becoming pregnant, would be to transplant the Embryo sired by them Into Their Own body by inducing the necessary transformation in their body for the transplantation, and denying Them the chance or facility of Abortion by imprisonment. If that is done, such unscrupulous men, by becoming ‘Surrogate Mothers and laughing stock’ themselves, and males in general, will understand how raped women feel if forced to go through an unwanted, imposed pregnancy. This would not be revenge but Natural justice! After all, the man has done the ‘(Dush)Karma’, so there is no injustice in making him bear the ‘Phal’ (Fruit) of his ‘Karma’!’Uski Taang(/Uska Veerya) Uske Galeme’! To be sure, this will be a more mortifying sentence for rapists than the Death Sentence. At the same time, the crusaders for the rights of rapist criminals cannot or should not oppose it as they did against death penalty for the rapists of Nirbhaya. UNFORTUNATELY, this is is too complicated and expensive a measure to be applied in practice!)

The child, after its birth, in both types of surrogacy, can be entrusted to a good orphanage for its care and upbringing.

So instead of banning the newly developed Medical advancement of Surrogate Mother service, it should be used by the Government and Social Welfare Organisations as a tool and need of society for solving the problems of genuine cases in common society, of sexually exploited girls who really cannot afford to carry their rapist’s or infidel partner’s child to full term, or women with a weak uterus to avoid the chance of miscarriage (and not banned, as such a ban will make it the exclusive and surreptitious privilege of the wives of rich people, who resort to it just to maintain their figure or to avoid the pains of delivery). So instead of banning Poor and Willing women from rendering their services to other needy women, and robbing them of their means of livelihood, it should be permitted but with certain restrictions so that the provision should not be exploited.

All said and done, the most important help would be the Sympathy and Staunch Moral support by Society to the Unfortunate, innocent victims of lust of irresponsible and perverted Males !

  1. Genital Repair Surgery can easily be done by a competent Gynaecologist/ Plastic Surgeon…the more important thing is to relieve the mental agony which results in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ( PTSO)…which lingers on a lifetime.

    • Agree. As a matter of fact, I have myself deleted that blog already,
      as I know it is not practical. As a Matter of Fact, I had written it somewhat in sarcasm to indicate that to live with one’s dignity intact in this Male Dominated World, One has to have a Male body.Otherwise, even a Toddler or Granny is Torn down Mercilessly By Rapists, and Our Society Cares Two Hoots for them.

      So The Female Body Itself Is A Misfortune As It Is Prone To Atrocity,
      Unless She is born under a Lucky Star, and among the few enlightened, broad minded people that exist.

      Hence it is important not only to relieve the mental agony of rape
      Victims but also to do something to lighten or dispel the Stigma
      of Rape and Its Resultant Pregnancy!
