"[S]tudying the retarding effects that castration had on eunuchs(...)".

I read in a copy of one book which is more than 900 years old, that "It is possible to make a eunuch from a man, but nobody ever succeeded to make a man from a eunuch".

The saying above cannot be applied to women, and I don't know relevant statement applicable to women.

Speaking as an English pedant (and with no disrespect to the great people who take the time to write wikipedia pages, which we take for granted) I must say that "studying the effects of castration on eunuchs" is not going to yield much.
