IamA 17 year old born with a rare condition called persistent cloaca AND another condition called imperforate anus.
My short bio: Persistent cloaca is a condition which is only seen in females where the rectum, vagina, and urinary tract meet and fuse, creating a cloaca, a single common channel. I had reconstructive surgery as a baby so now i no longer have a single common channel. However, because of the imperofrate anus, going to the toilet has been a struggle my whole life and i have to use what is called a 'stoma' to poop, which is essentially putting a huge thin tube through a small hole that was created on my belly all the way into my bowels and then putting water through it. (another fact which is pretty unrelated is that ironically enough, i am a female to male transgender person and have identified this way for many years, so please refer to me as a guy if you can.)
My reason for doing this is that there aren't alot of people with cloaca talking openly about their condition online and it's always been quite scary for me as i've felt so alone. so hopefully other girls or guys going through the same stuff can find comfort in this.
My Proof: The only proof i can think of providing which i don't think classes as full proof is my medical equipment, with each piece labeled for what it does.
