Do you think a man who got his testicles removed because of cancer would probably think the word “eunuch” is a slur?

I’m not asking what you think.

Im asking what do you believe the man who had cancer would probably think.
Im guessing yes they probably would perceive it as a slur. I imagine it’s likely the man who had cancer didn’t want to get his male parts removed but kind of had to so they can cure themselves from cancer.

I’m not asking what you (a person who has likely never had testicular cancer) thinks about the word eunuch and whether you think it’s a slur word. Im asking what do you believe the man who has actually had cancer and had to get his parts surgically removed to save himself from cancer would probably think.

  • Yes, I would imagine that a man in that situation would feel like he is being verbally attacked/ridiculed, and who would be happy about that?

  • Probably because if someone is randonly bringing it up, they are most likely saying it to make fun of him.

  • I wouldn't think of it as a slur, that'd just be what I was. I can't really think of a more polite way to put it in one word, and I'd imagine it would be annoying to hear people say I'm a "guy who had his testicles removed" instead of just saying I'm a eunuch. It's just an unnecessary mouthful. I imagine that's what most guys who've had their testicles removed think too. Sure they didn't want or ask for that to happen to them, but that doesn't change the fact that it did.

    I know you said you weren't asking what we think, but I can't really think of another way to answer that question aside from imagining myself in those shoes. I can't stand people walking on eggshells around me about the issues I do have, and most guys share that sentiment.

  • Of course. Why wouldn’t you call him an amputee like any other person who had body parts amputated?

  • Why would you ever mention this in conversation?

  • I would not consider it to be a problem and would also want the scrotum to be removed. Would also be ok if the penis was removed along with it as long as the urethra was properly relocated for peeing when sitting.

    • Wouldn't go out of my way to tell people or to hide it by wearing lose clothing; fitted clothing that resulted in a smooth look would not be a problem either.

  • Probably. Hopefully he would be given fake ones so no one would know unless he told them.

  • Not really. As far as I’m concerned it could also apply to a fella with family jewels but no sexual desire (the Bible says some are born eunuchs). I suppose a fella who had only one removed due to cancer and opted not to have a falsie put in (I used to know someone fitting that description) could also be referred to as a uniballer.

    Then there’s this one guy called Iron Balls McGinty which is pretty much self-explanatory.

    • No need to be rude. Try re-wording your question so that it makes sense.

  • No unless it was used as an insult

  • Eunich is somebody that had their dick and balls cut off.

  • I don't think they would know what it means

  • Yes. Why can't you just call him Brian like everyone else?

  • Why would it when the word itself means a man that was castrated. Being castrated because of cancer or because the judge sentenced a rapist to castration for his crime doesn’t matter because the word fits either way. A man that has been castrated….

  • I wouldn’t
