One in every 5,000 babies are born without a butthole, which has to be created manually by the hospital. One in 5,000 is actually very common! It’s a birth defect doctor’s term ‘imperforate anus‘ and you can learn more about it (if you so desire, of course) by clicking here.
Whenever I’m feeling a bit down on myself, I always try to remind myself of two good friends I had way back in high school that were brothers, but were also conjoined twins. One of the brothers happened to be gay, and whenever his boyfriend was coming over, it always saddened the other brother because it was yet another reminder of the fact they both shared the same butthole. So yeah, things could always be worse than what they are, wherever you are, I think. Remember that.
