The Hermaphrodite: Geng Junlan or Geng Zi
A girl who went under surgery knife four times for a sex change exposed "himself" to the public in Zhongshan Hospital, Xiamen, east China's Fujian Province.
The girl, originally named Geng Junlan, underwent four operations in a year to successfully become a boy, now called Geng Zi.
Dr Xiu Zhifu, chief of department of orthopedics at Zhongshan Hospital, claimed that Geng Zi has already been recognized as a true man, the Southeast Express reported on Thursday.
Not only was the operation a medical success, but Geng also developed a totally male psyche, Dr. Xiu said. "But, it is a pity that Geng is unable to father his own like other men," Xiu added.
Geng feels happy now because his family as well as people around him has accepted him. "They understand me a lot better than before the operations," he said.
Geng Zi impressed journalists a lot because of his friendliness and good nature while facing a group of reporters.
A male reporter even made fun of him and asked, "Do you have any desires as a genuine man now?"
"Well, I don't have a girlfriend at the moment, so it is hard to answer your question; but to be frank, I prefer seeing pretty girls on the street now," Geng replied.
