What would you do if one day you woke up and... your d**k disappeared? Sorry for the almost-clickbait-like first line, but I’ve been thinking about writing a story, and I was wondering how most normal people would realistically react to the gender bender trope of waking up as the other sex. Now, one of my huge pet peeves about male-to-female gender bender is that it’s common for people instantly wake up as beautiful bishoujos with long hair and big boobs. The reason why this bothers me is: Just because you transform into a girl doesn’t mean you’re going to be beautiful. If MC is plain-looking as a guy, he should be plain-looking as a girl. How’d their hair grow so long and so rapidly neatly/perfectly overnight? Even if it grows fast, realistically it’d look like a disheveled bush. It takes effort to get your hair to be nice, and having girl DNA doesn’t intrinsically make your hair pretty. Unrealistic boob sizes..... unrealistic boob sizes.... unrealistic boob sizes.... okay, maybe I’m biased against big boobs, but I can’t stand enormous boobs, especially if the MC is Asian. Okay, now you heard my complaints. Because of all these reasons, recently I’ve been thinking of a gender-bender novel where the only change MC experiences is that he loses his d*ck (replaced with v*gina), but he retains his male external appearance for now, and the story would be on how he deals with it. Because the change is inside the pants, at first nobody would be able to see. The question I have is how you would react if one day you woke up and realized you lost an organ (and it was replaced with something else)? It’s completely ridiculous, and you know it’s ridiculous/impossible, but assume that it happened nonetheless and you have to deal with it in addition to your normal everyday life (work, friends, school). I don’t really care about what you would do in the short term. I’m more interested in your long-term actions/plans assuming that you were stuck in this situation forever. Here’s a series of questions: 1. Would you contact anyone or share your situation with anyone (to ask for advice)? If yes, who? Your family? Your male friends? Your female friends? 2. Would you go to the hospital/doctor? What about the next time you have to go for a yearly physical exam? 3. What do you do the first time you get a period? 4. What would you do if you slowly started growing boobs? 5. Would you take medications like testosterone to maintain your male external appearance? 6. Would this change your life/career plans in any way? 7. Would this change your social life in any way? Examples: bathroom, locker rooms, swimming pools, etc. 8. What would you do about relationships/dating? Would your sexual behavior change? 9. Would you consider living your life as a man or a woman? If you are female and responding to this thread, you can consider all the questions in reverse.
