Regarding Bert Cooper’s Lack of Testicles

"Anyway, so if Cooper had a bilateral orchiectomy in the 1930s or 1940s, there wouldn’t have been testosterone available in pill form, right? With the reduced testosterone, wouldn’t it be unlikely for him to have a beard and a deep voice? And if he only had one testicle removed, wouldn’t he still be functionally virile?"
