Poem: My Intersectionality



Born in every way

I am hated by your world

May I wake you up

Haiku By Mx. Anunnaki Ray Marquez

November 22, 2018,

Thanksgiving Day in the United States

My intersectionality:

I feel like an alien to this world.

I have a Marquez Castilian Spanish Father

My mother grew up in poverty in the United States as German and Pennsylvania Dutch.

My Ashkenazi Jewish Genes makes me and my cousin intersex.

Born a 46XX an Intersex boy, but assigned female at birth in error.

My form of intersex is one of the most commonly aborted! 

Labeled a Disorder of Sex Development and a medical condition.

Later labeled a Transgender Man.

My husband and I now look like two Gay Men.

I am very Queer.

Born a Zebra among Horses: Mitochondrial dysfunction & Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.

I have a Learning Difference, Memory issues, and Autism Spectrum Traits.

I was misdiagnosed mentally ill but cleared by different psychiatrists as not having such a diagnosis.

I am a recovered alcoholic and addict: My psychiatrist was my drug dealer.

I can’t eat gluten and am truly carbohydrate intolerant.

A parent to marginalized three children, since they have two dads now.

I’m a Gestational Father two.  I had six pregnancies and two live births.

Adoptive same-gender parents.

Received the first intersex birth certificate in Colorado proving my biological sex is intersex and not a disorder of sex development.
