    Surgeries and procedures

    Genital nullification can mean many different kinds of surgeries to take away most or all of a person's reproductive organs and genitals. Some nonbinary people seek this as part of their physical transition in order to be sexless, and/or in response to gender dysphoria that makes them feel alienated from having any kind of genitals.[1] However, one need not have genital nullification in order to be genderless, because gender identity is different than physical sex. A person can be genderless while having genitals that most people would think of as female, male, or intersex. A person also need not identify as genderless in order to seek genital nullification.

    A person's options for genital nullification depend on what kind of body they started out with. For people who had a penis and testicles, genital nullification can mean using surgery to take away those parts, called emasculation.[2] For people who had a uterus, vagina, and labia, genital nullification can mean using surgery to take away some of those parts, called hysterectomy, vaginectomy, and some kinds of labiaplasty.[3]
