Some girls have penises all the time.

Female spotted hyenas dominate the pack. Their genitals resemble the males’ genitals, and they use their penises socially, with one individual’s erection signifying submission to another individual. This kind of genitalia tends to make both mating with males and childbirth complicated.

Certain boys and girls don’t make babies.
