This is well done. I appreciate Hollie Howitt in their effort to change society to stop equating that our genitals equal gender. Hollie uses adult language, while also using controversial words for vagina and penis, she makes a very good point about the human right to orgasm. Plus, they elaborate on how the male… Continue reading Genitals Do Not Equal Gender
I have heard it will take time. That it is going to take time to stop mutilating the genitals of innocent children. No, you are not "fixing us" and getting away with it no longer. Yes, you heard right. We all shout from the rooftops now! That this world is so barbaric! Everyone will… Continue reading My Plea to this World on New Year’s Day 2018.
I have a dear friend of mine who is an intersex survivor. His name is Jeffrey A. Benedict, and he has allowed me to share this with you today.

It is impossible for me to please everyone in the intersex and transgender community. MLK Jr was NOT liked by all in his community. He moved forward anyway. I do the best I can to respect everyone. I always say: when you have met ONE intersex person you have met ONE intersex person. Some… Continue reading Every Human Deserves Self-Determination

If we are a risk of appearing homosexual to this world, they will cut off our parts, and create parts.… Continue reading If this is not eugenics and genocide what is it?
I have an intersex cousin who was born about ten years after me. They allowed a surgeon to cut off their child's phallus for no good reason. They allowed themselves to be talked into the utterly crazy belief that all there is to be a woman is to be missing a penis. Worse, this surgeon… Continue reading Being rejected by my family because of what I represent when I speak up for my intersex cousin who was mutilated.
Dear Little Boy, who I used to be, Please do not believe the lies you were told. They convinced you that you were born wrong, that you would amount to nothing. They even convinced you that you would never be lovable as your authentic self. They told you over and over, from the time… Continue reading A Note to self: Dear Little Boy, who I used to be

We are not myth, We are real. We are hermaphrodites. That word HERMAPHRODITE you even destroyed that too!… Continue reading Poem: Stop Cutting us With Steel
Normalizing interventions done to our bodies and to our minds. Unthinkable, and yet it is still allowed to happen. Unthinkable, and yet the medical complex still gets away with it. And here we are having to stay calm! When it is simply unthinkable! Here we are trying to teach you, so that culture will stop doing… Continue reading Poem: STOP the Unthinkable!
