Woman Born Without A Vagina Raises Funds For Life-Changing Surgery

Her boyfriend sets aside $50 every month for her surgery.

Kaylee Moats has everything going well for her. She just graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications, she has a loving family and she has a boyfriend. But one thing’s missing — her vagina.

Kaylee was born without a vaginal opening or a womb and she learned about it when she was already 18 years old.

Kaylee Moats, 22. was born with a condition called Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome (MRKH).

This rare condition affects 1 in 4,500 newborn girls.

This means Kaylee and her boyfriend Robbie cannot be fully intimate.

MKRH is a congenital abnormaltiy characterized by an underdeveloped or absence of a uterus, cervix or vaginal opening. The ovaries are usually present and the function normally while the external genitalia looks just the same as it should. However, Kaylee said that her hole is replaced by a dimpled skin.

The Gilbert, Arizona resident expressed how sad and heartbroken she was after finding out that she can’t bear children. When she was 18, she hadn’t gotten her period but she was alarmed when her 12-year-old sister got hers.

After a visit to the gynecologist, Kaylee learned that she had no uterus through an ultrasound. She told Barcroft TV how she feels “less of a woman” knowing she can’t do what most women can.

Out of desperation, Kaylee’s family, especially her sister Amanda, thought about helping her by setting up a GoFund Me page to raise money to fund for her reconstructive surgery.

The insurance companies refuse to cover for Kaylee’s operation.

Besides, they consider Kaylee’s case as cosmetic or gender reassignment surgery instead of a life-saving treatment.

After learning about her condition, Kaylee had always been afraid of what others might think of her. When she met her boyfriend in college, she had a hard time letting him know the truth. But Robbie eventually knew about it. He was confused at first but that didn’t change anything in their relationship.

He said:

“When she told me, I already had grown to love this person, so it’s not going to make me love her any less. I’ll be there every step of the way. I’m amazed that she hasn’t let this define her. She inspires me every day.”

Robbie has even pledged $50 from his monthly salary to support Kaylee's fundraising campaign.

Kaylee’s friends and even strangers who learned about her condition have shown support for the campaign. As of this writing, Amanda has already raised $10,310 for her sister’s reconstructive surgery.

Brave Lady Documented Her First Brazilian Wax Session in Very Informative Video

Here’s what to expect from your first Brazilian wax session.

People may have heard about Brazilian wax but never really knew about it. Some women like to have regular sessions while others may feel uncomfortable at the thought of it. A Brazilian wax gives a woman a clean feeling down there -- and many consider it the best hair removal process, especially during summer when it’s time to get your skimpy swimwear out.

Despite the possible sting and the awkward feeling of having someone else see and touch your private parts, many women would opt to have their pubic hair removed by Brazilian wax. For one brave young lady, she decided that her first session ever should be an experience that she can share with people. She had agreed to do a video of her session so people will know what to expect from the hair removal procedure.

Study Proves Women with Bigger Butts Are Smarter and Healthier

The research was led by Oxford University no less.

It turns out there's a science-supported reason to celebrate big butts. A study led by Oxford University found that women with larger behinds, or those that fall under the 'pear' body type, are smarter and more resistant to chronic illnesses. Data from 16,000 women were analyzed for the study.

So not only is it essential to determine the amount of one's body fat, it is also helpful to identify where the body fat is located. Women with butts like those of Beyonce and Kim Kardashian should rejoice.

Science supports that having more fat in the thighs and the hips is a good sign.

106-Year-Old Fruitcake Found in Antarctica Still in Good Condition

The fruitcake found in an abandoned hut in Antarctica still looks good enough to eat even after 106 years.

A fruitcake is a delicacy that could be traced back to ancient Rome. It contains spices such as cinnamon or ginger, chopped dried fruit, and nuts. The cake could also be soaked in spirits so it is further preserved. Of course, this was absolutely necessary because there were no refrigerators back then.

Indeed, the cake could be stored for a long time. As such, it was a staple for people going on long journeys. Many pioneering explorers headed to isolated or unfamiliar territories always packed some fruitcake. It served as their emergency sustenance when there were no other options.

It's the last place where you'd expect to find a random fruitcake.
