Hebrew slang for transsexual man or woman, it is only used as a noun. The etymological origin of the word is descendent from a famous German Jewish Icon called Shankovich. He was an urban legend among the oppressed Jewish community in Munich under the Hitlerian Regime starting from 1938. Thus the Shank was applauded by his Jewish family members and community he was kidnapped by the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler (LSSAH). The young man had been traumatized by the violence of the rapes he suffered from the members of the Hitlerian entourage. This distress leads the Shank into performing on himself a castration ceremony that was followed by a surgical procedure of sexual change. Sadly the word Shank is now used with a very negative connotation as it describes in Hebrew either a man who suffered from carnal anal acts with no consent, a man who lost his virility or simply a transsexual person.
e.g:
1)"You are such a Shank."- insult
2) "Don’t call me Shank, I’m sorry that you couldn’t accept the new me; I am a woman now and I’m proud."- Claim
3) "Yesterday I saw a Shank in front of the Moulin Rouge in Paris, a very horrible and disturbing image."- Gossip

believe it or not, in the province of New Brunswick, shank does not mean stab in prison slang, it means to de-pant someone, or pants someone. imagine my surprise when i heard the soccer team was shanking all the freshmans. this is surprisingly a very widely used and understodd term
-(first person)"dude im gonna shank you in front of your girlf friend"

-(second person)"i swear to god if you do, im gonna shank you in the middle of a crowd."

-(third person)" omg those guys are gonna stab each otehr, wtf why am i here."
