I enjoyed Fanny and Stella, but was also bothered by the author's apparent embellishments. Still, I'm glad I read it.

A close 17-year-old relative, a lovely and feminine girl, was recently examined to find the reason she hadn't begun menses. Although externally she appears to be a normal female, it was discovered that she has no vagina or uterus, but does have internal testes. She then saw a specialist who told her parents that her condition is uncommon but not rare.

When I told her she is perfect just the way she is, she said, "I know that." Families do adjust quickly and perceptions of normal change. I understand Stella's mother wanting only her child's happiness without concern for society's ideas of normalcy. One can only hope that society will not punish those seen as 'different'.

Yes, thank goodness there is a bit more compassion and acceptance of difference now than there was. And with her family's love and support I do hope all goes well for her.
