An Anonymous Message from a Suicidal Intersex Survivor

I have been helping an intersex survivor and asked to share their words to this world.  I Hope this makes everyone give pause.  It is no wonder why the suicide rate is so high.  I have felt the same at times: I may seem like a strong person, but in reality, I am fragile deep… Continue reading An Anonymous Message from a Suicidal Intersex Survivor

Can you imagine being told your body is wrong at three? Somebody else was in control.… Continue reading Poem: Somebody else was in control

Stop Erasing us.

Stop erasing us. MX. ANUNNAKI RAY, GENDER/INTERSEX ACTIVIST·MONDAY, JUNE 5, 2017 It is always interesting to me how some people would rather end a relationship, and sometimes end a long term friendship, than try to find in their hearts room for another type of person or culture.

Why when I go to the Emergency Room I mark Both the male and female box.

The male/female binary is a Myth!

Being rejected by my family because of what I represent when I speak up for my intersex cousin who was mutilated.

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.

A Woman’s PENIS and A Man’s VAGINA; and explaining this to our children.

Our kids are proof that it is about educating only about the male/man & female/woman binary, and intersex erasure, that messes up the truth around natural bodily variations existing in us humans.  You see, our children were taught that intersex bodies and transgender bodies existed.  We educated them as soon as I realized I was… Continue reading A Woman’s PENIS and A Man’s VAGINA; and explaining this to our children.
