Why do I feel like A VISITING ALIEN?

Do I really have to have more surgery to fit into

YOUR WORLD?

I use to appear a typical woman

Then I use to want to appear a typical man

Now I am being compared to transgender men

I even made a lousy woman.

Where do I fit in?

Please do not erase me

I have had over eighteen surgeries

Thanks to being sickly and broken all my life

I am EXHAUSTED trying to fit into your world

Please do not erase me

Just let my body be.

They say “No Body is Shameful”

Oh how beautiful that is!

Please do not erase me

I just want to go to the beach, the pool; to dress the way I am

But do I dare?

Will I be called the bearded woman?

Will you call me drag?

Would you be my friend or talk behind my back?

I am not a circus sideshow

I am not a woman

I am an intersex person

I am an intersex man

Please do not erase me

They said I am unlovable

Yet I even proved you wrong there

I am loved, desired and needed

I am a LOVED

parent, a husband, a brother, a cousin, and an amazing friend!

I even contribute to this world to make your planet a better place

YET

Here I am wishing…….

to be a part of your world

Please, I beg this world for

OUR

HUMAN RIGHTS

STOP Cutting us to make us fit in

Stop expecting me to CUT myself

To fit in.

I WILL NOT HAVE MORE SURGERY! 

This is my planet too!

“I”

Simply want human rights

“I”

Want to feel human

Please do not erase me,

or

any of us Intersex People

“I”

doesn’t have to be invisible anymore!

All Intersex Bodies are beautiful, and I do not need fixed to fit your normal
