Many anti-youth transgender bills have exclusions that promote the continued surgical harm of innocent intersex kids. In these bills, they will call an intersex child a“disorder of sex development” and wrongfully justify continuing to do cosmetic, medically unnecessary surgeries on non-consenting children. All children, endosex or intersex, deserve self-determination over their own bodies. Trans youth, and intersex babies/children,… Continue reading A Call for Action: Against Anti-Youth Transgender Bills

In 2014, when I came out, I was told I could never receive communion again.
In 2014, when I cam out my authentic gender identity, I was told by my church I could never receive communion ever again. All due living as a man now and going against my birth assignment.

Poem: SCARS By Sarah Hobbs | Intersex Survivor
At six weeks, my skin felt the coldness and the sharpness of the steel scalpel, as it tore through my infant abdomen. Unformed and benign gonads, with their unfulfilled destinies, wreaking havoc on my newness. Brought into conscious existence unbeknown of my incompleteness; my cells deriving my complexities.
