Turns out your day doesn't suck as badly as you thought it did. Here's the lowdown on the latest guy drawing the short straw from the universe.

Who: A 66yr-old man in China. Why it sucks so hard to be him: After visiting Hong Kong's Kwong Wah Hospital complaining of abdominal swelling, doctors told him his stomach pain was actually caused by a cyst on one of his ovaries. The man, who'd believed he just had a micropenis his whole life, found out he's actually a woman. Ain't that a kick in the apparently-not nuts? How the hell can this be? According to a paper published in the Hong Kong Medical Journal, the patient suffered from a rare combination of a chromosomal abnormality called Turner Syndrome as well as the genetic disorder Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, which gave HimHer the internal organs of a woman but the physical appearance of a man. The patient is reportedly 4' 5" tall and bearded, has no testicles, has complained of urinary leakage since childhood, and, in arguably his only merciful break thus far, cannot get pregnant.

But the real upside is that he went from having a tiny penis to a huge clitoris -- sure, sucks to be this guy, but awesome to be this chick!
