(Daily Mail) A transgender woman has told of her joy after internet users paid for her to have a vagina.

Samantha Allen said she is used to receiving abuse online, so could not believe it when she raised the $8,000 needed for her surgery in less than 24 hours.

Ms Allen, a doctoral fellow in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Emory University, in Atlanta, raised the money through crowdfunding.

On The Daily Dot she wrote: ‘I’ve been called every anti-woman, anti-gay, and anti-transgender slur in the dictionary.

‘I’ve read three thousand word e-mails from anonymous readers who just want to let me know that I’m a disgrace to my community.

‘So if you had told me last year that I would one day be tearfully thanking the internet for supporting my gender transition, I would have laughed in your face.’
