Up until this year, I typically have not celebrated June CAH Awareness month, because of the CAH (Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) organizations and groups not even acknowledging my sex is intersex and that I am an intersex man. I do believe that this is all due to their prejudice and bias. Serendipitously, CAH Awareness Month lands… Continue reading June is CAH Awareness Month | What it means to me in 2020

You call this evolved? You are a fool! With your invention of sex, you erased an entire class of people. Ancient people accepted what you denied. Indigenous people accept what you deny!

While I sit in Facebook Jail. My thoughts: To every single endosex/cisgender/heterosexual who talks about us intersex people to get "wows" and "laughs" and views at our expense. And worse, by using the wrong language, but Facebook doesn't take you down. Maybe you will someday figure out there is an intersex person's heart on the other… Continue reading While I sit in Facebook Jail
We both felt like we were from another world. You on one side of the country, and me on the other. And we would not know it until half our lives were over. You would be born a decade before me. Sharing with pride to all your friends your genitals from another world. All… Continue reading Poem: When two lonely aliens become brothers

A friend shared this quote with me when I was dying and saving myself from the horrors of forced gender assignment back in 2014. Back then, I felt like I was drowning in the middle of the cold Atlantic Ocean with no raft, no life jacket. Abandoned by those who should have cared, but did… Continue reading Why medical prejudice and malpractice didn’t kill me.
