  Emasculation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Emasculation is the removal of the genitalia of a male, notably the penis and/or the testicles, by surgery, violence, or accident (see castration).
By extension, the word has also come to mean “to socially render (a male person) less of a man,” or “to make (a male person) feel himself to be less of a man by subjecting him to humiliation.” This metaphorical usage of the word is much more common than the application of its literal meaning.
"the Triennial Act was emasculated by the Cavalier Parliament".

 Indian Agricultural Resources - Seeds
Emasculation is done before the anthers are mature and the stigma has become receptive to minimise accidental self-pollination.
Emasculation is generally done in the evening, between 4 and 6 p.m., one day before the anthers are expected to dehisce or mature and the stigma is likely to become fully receptive.
Immediately after emasculation, the flowers or the inflorescences are enclosed in suitable bags of appropriate size to prevent random cross-pollination.

 Irvine, "Abelard's Negotiations of Gender"
Abelard's narratives of emasculation and remasculinization participate in a large body of discourse and genres that represent bodily mutilation and stories of castration anxieties generally, and the cultural meaning of the events narrated in Abelard's letters must be sought in the larger social system of values and identities within which they were produced.
Narratives of emasculating mutilation abound in accounts of the crusades, local wars, and revenge in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
These are only a few examples of numerous accounts and representations of physical emasculation, both fictional and historical, and Abelard's narrative is significant for its attempt to play down the importance of the physical violence, repressing the full psychic and social trauma in the construction of a moral and spiritual drama.

 The Emasculation of a King by Jørn K. Baltzersen
The Swedish King is one of the most emasculated monarchs in the world, if not the most emasculated.
It would though perhaps be an irony of history if the Swedish monarch were not the most emasculated, or at least if he were the least emasculated in Europe.
I might add that if Hans-Hermann Hoppe were ever to receive The Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel [sic, it's not actually a Nobel Prize], he would receive it from the hands of the King or Queen of Sweden.

The Jedi through their strict rules forbidding personal attachments attempt to emasculate Anakin by interfering with his sexual development and his ability to procreate.

The Buffyverse begins with Buffy already empowered; it is not until the last episode of the second season that we are shown, in flashback, the moment of her calling at Hemery.
Illyria is less typically feminine, and her/its presence is written less as the arrival of an earth mother and more as the discomfiting return of a fairly confused and obsolete king who speaks in feudal and antiquated terms.
This violence is not necessarily emasculating, however, in the sense of challenging/destroying male gender identity, although it is directed at men qua men.

 Guardian | A study in emasculation
Broadcasters have largely accepted that attacks on the White House can only harm America's interests, and when they don't they are bamboozled and vilified by the shrill voices of the right.
I visit the States three or four times a year, and watching the television news in hotel rooms in the last three years has been like witnessing a time-lapse study of emasculation.
It's not just the unbearable lightness of purpose in most news shows; it's the sense that everyone is rather too mindful of the backstairs influence of the White House in companies such as Viacom and News Corporation that own the TV news.

Although the standard method whereby wheat spikes were hand-emasculated and pollinated on the day of anthesis gave a higher efficiency, the ‘non-emasculation method’ gave a comparable response.
The use of the non-emasculation method and spike culture could eliminate much of the labour required for emasculation and treatment with 2,4-D, which is normally applied by injection into wheat internodes or by dropping onto florets after pollination with maize.
Most of the selfed seeds were easily identified by the presence of endosperm, and the probability of contamination by the embryos originating from selfing among the presumptive haploid embryos in the non-emasculation method was very low.

Magical emasculation, popular anticlericalism, and the limits of the Reformation in western France circa 1590.
Analysis of anticlerical opinions held by urban and rural populations in western France shows a common belief, across all ranks of society and rooted in local folk magic, that clerics employed sorcery to render new grooms impotent and new households subject to discord and dishonor.
Enduring public belief in prelates' fl magic and capacity to inflict magical emasculation diminished the influence of Catholic clergy in the region.

For Wright, the danger posed by nationalism was its unconscious appeal to the psyches of male workers.
His Depression Era works suggests that, since all male workers are raised in a patriarchal society, their feelings of powerlessness can evoke feelings of emasculation.
Wright shows how these feelings of emasculation can be intensified for fl men, since they are extra-oppressed by racism and are symbolically emasculated as "boys" in a racist discourse.

Turkey's disastrous choices and perverted image campaign in order to appeal to traditionally anti-Turkish left-wing peace activists and Arabic radicals, can no more be explained by the lack of experience of its new government, leading AK Party, and foreign minister Abdullah Gul.
The only rational explanation must lie in Turkey's political self- emasculation.
Apparently, it will present its application for EU membership as a political eunuch for Europe - as a harmless country without real military capabilities (not even a show of force beyond Cyprus, for over 80 years), and without an independent agenda to integrate its Kurdish minority.

 EFFECT OF AMINO-OXYACETIC ACID ON COLORATION OF THE LABELLUM AND LONGEVITY OF CUT CYMBIDIUM FLOWERS
If coloration of the labellum and senescence was accelerated by emasculation AOA had a retarding effect, both on coloration and on senescence.
To delay coloration of the labellum induced by exogenous ethylene, a higher concentration of AOA is required.
If emasculated individual Cymbidium flowers were held in AOA solution for one week, the effect of AOA depended on the moment of emasculation: coloration of the lip was delayed if emasculation took place early, but AOA had only a slight effect if emasculation occurred later during the AOA treatment.
