Whassa problem? He’s a ‘she’, right?
It’s not like she’d need them.
Unless… like a typical man, ‘she’ has commitment issues.
Because the surgery was done at the transgender woman’s request.
This story is so bizarre, you’d think it happened in Florida.
But, no. This was in Denver, Colorado.
Where weed is legal.
DENVER – Police say a man faces felony assault charges after he used an Army surgical kit to remove the testicles of a transgender woman.
According to court paperwork, James Pennington, 57, confessed to removing those testicles. Police called Pennington after the victim was taken to an area hospital. Pennington willingly agreed to a police interview on May 17, at the District 3 headquarters.
He has since been arrested and is being held without bond.
According to police records, Pennington agreed to perform the surgery at the ‘victim’s’ apartment at the request of the ‘victim’.
Records state Pennington “used the scalpel and surgically disconnected and removed the victim’s 2 testicles and then sutured the opening back up.”
The victim’s wife was with her during what was described in court paperwork as a 90-minute-long procedure. Pennington then told the couple to call 911 if complications developed.
The victim’s wife told police after changing her dressing, a large amount of blood poured out of the wound so she called 911. Responding paramedics called police.
The probable cause statement says, “the testicles could not be re-attached due to time delay of a procedure to 911 call.”
That last sentence is one of the most horrific ones I have read in a long time, amirite?
That conjures a very disturbing mental image, doesn’t it?
The victim was taken to Medical Center of Aurora, where they told detectives she suffered from injuries that had the risk of “permanent disfigurement.”
The victim’s name, along with the victim’s wife were redacted from the report.
If that wasn’t disturbing enough, this person is now facing a possibility of permanent disfigurement.
Which is weird, because wasn’t that the purpose of the surgery?
And then it just gets weirder…
Police say Pennington is not a licensed medical professional in Colorado. He is a licensed pilot.

So, to reacap:
– Trans woman asks for surgery to remove the offending ‘male bits’
– The wife is present for the 90-minute surgery
– When things go south, the wife calls 911
– Things went south because the guy they asked to do the surgery used an army surgical kit — and was not a licensed doctor, but a licensed pilot
– Trans woman faces ‘permanent disfigurement’ and the testicles cannot be reattached
– Pilot is charged
– Trans woman and wife had their names redacted because of their ‘victim’ status.
Who was it that wanted this surgery again?
It’s unlikely anyone would volunteer to perform such an operation.
Dontcha think that maybe the trans woman and her spouse have some culpability in this grotesque situation?
