    Castrate and emasculate

    Dear Teachers,

    What's the difference between Castrate and emasculate? I know they both mean :to cut genitals

    But there must be some difference between them, what's that?

    Thanks

    castrate does mean surgical removal of genitals, but emasculate means to make a man less of a man by other ways - could be psychological, some kind of deprivation, but not a physical injury

    Re: Castrate and emasculate

    Hi Redy,

    There are my two cents.

    castrate (v) =

    1. To remove the testicles of (a male); geld or emasculate.
    2. To remove the ovaries of (a female); spay.
    3. To deprive of virility or spirit; emasculate.

    to render incapable of reproducing sexually: alter, fix, geld, neuter, spay, sterilize, unsex

    emasculate (v) =

    1. To castrate.
    2. To deprive of strength or vigor; weaken.
