** Since we need some [[Heartwarming/RealLife heartwarming]] after that, let's not forget the heroic African women who are organizing to resist and end the practice for themselves and their daughters. As local women, they know the strategies and arguments that will be most effective in their own communities; in some cases, local activists have succeeded in getting their entire communities to reject FGM altogether. And in the US, one of the world's most famous specialists in [[{{Transsexual}} genital reassignment surgery]], Dr. Marci Bowers (herself a trans woman), has a sideline helping victims of female genital mutilation. Using her experience in performing vaginoplasties for trans women, she performs reconstructive surgery to help FGM victims, restoring appearance, function, pleasure, and self-esteem. And she donates her services for free. She's also helping to train surgeons in Africa to perform the reconstructive procedures. [[http://marcibowers.com/our-services/fgm/ Link.]]

*** Urinating on an electric fence isn't dangerous because of the discontinuity of the flow, but a lightning strike certainly is. Remember that a lightning strike is basically electricity breaking through the resistance of ''air''.

*** Urinating What they busted was urinating on a third rail. It's simply too far away for the urine stream to maintain its continuity. On the other hand, it's entirely possible to urinate point-blank onto an electric fence isn't while either barefoot or wet (providing a grounding path). Thing is, most electric fences aren't set to kill but simply to discourage creatures like cattle from hanging around too close to them and possibly breaking out. The resultant shock is noticeable but not exactly dangerous.

* According to an {{Urban Legend|s}}, an old martial artist challenged a roomful of martial arts masters to knock him down. One by one they tried and were countered. Then Creator/BruceLee stepped forward and kicked him in the balls. [[note]]Realistically, martial arts probably have some training against this potentiality)[[/note]]

* In a [[http://screenertv.com/news-features/david-beckham-surprised-by-tv-reporter-elena-di-cioccios-investigative-approach/ 2010 infamous incident]], Italian reporter Elena Di Cioccio wanted to prove whether English soccer player David Beckham did have [[BiggerIsBetterInBed impressive]] [[IncrediblyLamePun golden balls]]. Beckham was busy doing an interview with an American TV network while Di Cioccio — nearby — put on a pair of yellow rubber gloves. She nudged past the camera crew and grabbed Beckham’s privates. He jumped back and glared at her before security guards stepped in and dragged her away. After she was dragged away, she spent few seconds to [[CompensatingForSomething contemplate with the hand that she just used to grab him]] [[RefugeInAudacity and decides]]: "I touched it but [[TeenyWeenie it’s small]]." A bit of DoubleStandard, since she got no (known) consequences from this.

* Chicago Bears defensive back Virgil Livers suffered a ruptured testicle in a 1976 game against the Oakland Raiders. While he was in a pile during a punt return, a Raiders player landed knee-first on Livers' crotch, ''exploding the testicle on impact''. Livers continued to play until his swollen scrotum made it too difficult for him to move on the field.

*** There simply are not the same cultural barriers involved in hitting a boy in the groin as there are the reverse. Parents, teachers, friends and authorities do not teach young boys to aim for a girls' crotch if he gets into trouble, and if he does for whatever reason, you won't be seeing that on Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos any time soon. This is also evidenced by the fact that female groin attacks are of an extreme rarity on film and TV, and when they do show up such as on Film/ShesTheMan, they are portrayed as being of a minor inconvenience at best. It actually isn't all that surprising that many men are in the dark as to the fact that women also hurt badly down there.
