I think even Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti shuddered beneath their gold encrusted tombs.
And no, I am not fabricating these details. After lobbying his family to marry a woman of a lower social class (which is highly frowned upon in the conservative province of Qena), he reached the last resort. So not only does he cut off his penis, he heats up the knife to do it.
To make the process more expedited and efficient? Ouch.
At the hospital, medical personnel determined the damage was irreversible.
There are so many things wrong with this story. Surely, his pals should have interceded. I guarantee if any friend of mine at that age indicated becoming a eunuch was a near-term plan, we would have staged an intervention.
And he did this at age 25? Are 25 year old men at the pinnacle of their development? Is the penis not the primary source of decision making and thought process for the average man this age? What happens then?
And if you want to teach your Dad a lesson, let me help you make a list of other potentially less painful options.
You can change your name, pretend you don't know him, denounce his bloodline even. You can opt to never step foot in his house again. You can wear a disguise and flee. You can take your wanton love, put it in a suitcase, and hit the street. However, what you should never, never do is take a hot searing knife and dismember your member.And just to be clear, I am not certain removing your own penis will actually teach your Dad a lesson but I think it is a bit late to make suggestions, isn't it?
And be it to cliche and trite to say that if can literally chop off your own King Tut, well, then at the bare minimum, you have balls. Probably won't get him to the altar, but this is a story for the ages of what you should never, ever do for love.
