Don't JUDGE, baby Jesus cries every time you do.

Ahm, why are there 300,000 of these men? Why are they referred to as 'she'? What does one *have* to do during puberty to be castrated? Why do they want a political party? Is there a FAQ on this?

I missed the "judgemental" part. What did I overlook?

Doing a Google-search on 'hijra', the 'eunuchs' seem muchly to be transsexuals - the connotations of which is rather different than 'eunuchs'.

Hey! You're JUDGING! Why do you just assume that their political party will be made out of transsexuals. Republican hypocrisy at it's worse! heh. (j/k)

(Btw, that hypocrisy bit shows that all Republicans are transsexuals, and all transsexuals are republicans. Not that I *want* to JUDGE. heh.)

A lot of those eunuchs aren't, as Cecil Adams explains.
