These Human Rights Organizations and many more say it is time to Stop IGM.

  All these organizations say it is time to give intersex children their self-determination over their own gender identity and allow the child to grow up to decide on their own if they need surgery or not.   Most surgeries done on intersex children are cosmetic in nature, unnecessary and done without the child's informed… Continue reading These Human Rights Organizations and many more say it is time to Stop IGM.

        My thoughts today and the way I see it.

A Masters that I want to get that would possibly enable me on my… Continue reading Always up against the wall: Could I go get my Masters in a gender binary world?

The Female Penis & The Male Vagnia

My own personal genital nonconformity, for me, brings a whole new meaning to being a gender nonconformist.  The way I see my vagina is a boy's vagina if it belongs to me, and I am legally a man now.  If a beautiful woman happens to have a penis, it is her penis.  Calling her penis… Continue reading The Female Penis & The Male Vagnia

The way I see it: A Penis and a Vagina does not Create our Gender Identity
