Imagine, you're a 12-year-old girl. You're worried that you didn't have any budding of breasts and menstruation. And all of a sudden, you have just grown a dick. This isn't some kind of futanari hentai abomination (who invented the idea of futanari?) but rather a mysterious type of condition primarily affecting girls at a younger age on puberty.

That's what these 'girls' in the Dominican Republic are experiencing in this rare type of intersexuality. The effects are including, growing a penis and testicles shows up out of nowhere. Imagine growing balls and dick? I'm a man, who has balls and dick; sometimes they're kinda disturbing, especially when they wiggle around like a loose snake.

The local term for this type of sexual condition is called "Guevedoces," which roughly means "penis at twelve."

Prader Scale: Penile Development of Guevedoces

As you can see in the photo, it looks like a real vagina right? But don't be fooled. It shows stages of what appears to be a vagina with the clitoris, vaginal canal, urinary tract, and other external parts.

Why does this happen?

Dr. Julianne Imperato-McGinley

Dr. Julianne Imperato-McGinley, from Cornell Medical College in New York, heard about the rumors of the reports that there are girls that are turning into boys. They grow themselves a penis and a pair of testicles while simultaneously lose their vagina and other women similar genital structures on their bodies. She was one of the first to study the intersex condition in the 1970s drawn by the curiosity of these unusual reports. When she found out that the rumors are true, she now extensively study the condition to help better understand what is causing it and also how it affects the children and the communities with it.

Pseudohermaphroditism

In the case of the Guevedoces, it is a type of Pseudohermaphroditism. That means, what we know is a female is actually a male on the genetic level. Genes, of being a male or female don't change throughout their lifetime. They are just males with the opposite external sexual organs.

A pseudohermaphrodite is a person whose gonads are consistent with the chromosomal sex but who has external genitalia of the opposite sex. Male pseudohermaphrodites have normal testes but incomplete masculinization of the wolffian duct system and external genitalia.

Richard E. Jones PhD, Kristin H. Lopez PhD, in Human Reproductive Biology (Fourth Edition), 2014

Embryonic Development

Why do girls turn to boys as Guevedoces? Not boys retracting their penises to become a vagina? Well, this is because of embryonic development which plays a large role in the development of the human and is the main culprit in this rare intersex condition.

Technically, all embryos are neither male nor female, even if you have an XX or XY chromosome. This is because it is NOT activated yet. Our sexual organs resemble a vagina but it's not yet developed before these chromosomes kick in.

During the first few weeks of the fetus development, a baby is neither male nor female. But after eight weeks, the sex hormones come into play and if the baby carries XY chromosomes, the gonads become testicles and testosterone is released into a structure known as tubercle. The testosterone is then transformed into dihydro-testosterone, which in turn transforms the tubercle into a penis. And, if the baby carries XX chromosomes, then no dihydro-testosterone is created and so the tubercle becomes a clitoris. However, in the case of guevedoces, though the children posses Y-chromosome and have male internal organs, they appear female externally at birth and are raised as girls.

What is the main culprit? Why does a penis doesn't develop?

Imperato-McGinley investigated these conditions and found out that enzyme deficiency of 5-alpha-reductase, the job of this enzyme is to convert testosterone to dihydro-testosterone which in turn stimulates the cells to further develop into a male sexual organ.

Status in Society

Unlike in other countries, in the Dominican Republic, Guevedoces are considered a third gender and it is normal for them to have a place in Las Salinas, where the ratio of Guevedoces to males is 1 Guevedoce per 9 males, which is strikingly high. In their adulthood, the majority of them will self-identify as males while some prefer to stay as females.

Ayy, iba yun ahahhahha eto yung vagina nagiging penis talaga... Like nag memetamorph hahhahhah.. Pero, may advantages rin if dalawa ang ano kasi pwede ka maging lalake o babae kung gusto mo HAAHHAH.. pero mahirap rin kasi madidiscriminate ka.

I agree. Pero mahirap rin i determine ang gender mo kasi dalawa ari mo, paano ka mamimili? Pero, question rin ito ng ethicality, kasi parang magulang mo na ang mamimili if babae ka ba o lalaki kahit na both sexes ang ari mo.
