>The practice of religious castration continued into the Christian era, with members of the early church practising celibacy (including castration) for religious purposes,[161] although the extent and even the existence of this practice among Christians is subject to debate.[162] The early theologian Origen found evidence of the practice in Matthew 19:10-12,:[163] "His disciples said to him, "If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is better not to marry." But he said to them, "Not everyone can accept this teaching, but only those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let anyone accept this who can." (NRSV)

>Tertullian, a 2nd-century Church Father, described Jesus himself and Paul of Tarsus as spadones, which is translated as "eunuchs" in some contexts.[164] Quoting from the cited book:[164] "... Tertullian takes 'spado' to mean virgin ...". The meaning of spado in late antiquity can be interpreted as a metaphor for celibacy, however Tertullian's specifically refers to St. Paul as being castrated.[164]

Is that Bailey jay

No, even your OP says it referred to celibacy only (which indeed has been an apostolic tradition, even for married men), not self castration. Also, Nicea I prohibited the practice of self castration
>>
Castration does not involve penile tissue, emasculation is the cutting of "we wes"

They were 'castrated' in the sense that they weren't trying to get laid and looked down on those who were chasing after sex but they didn't literally cut their organs off...

For example a follower of Dionysus' cult would have described Christians as 'castrated' because sex wasn't important to them.
