The way I see, and many other intersex born people see it: Intersex is not a term that should not be adopted by people who “feel” like they are intersex, but have endosex (non-intersex) bodies. I also feel that "intersex" can not accurately describe as an intersex person's gender identity, due to sex and… Continue reading “Intersex” can not be an Endosex Person’s Gender Identity.

Poem: Institutionalized approved torture
Today I shared to the world on Facebook: My great aunt suffered electric shock treatment and being locked up in psychiatric hospitals for being a lesbian. She would ultimately commit suicide to escape institutionalized torture. I sometimes wonder if she was also intersex. I can't get any straight answers. If she was intersex, that would… Continue reading Poem: Institutionalized approved torture
My idea: How medical forms could respect everyone.
Here is a sample that might work in respecting everyone when filling out forms for hospitals, doctors, mental health, or councilors. This would be a huge relief to me if I showed up at an emergency room and was given this instead of some conflated two options "male" or "female" that would not be accurate:… Continue reading My idea: How medical forms could respect everyone.
The problem with ALL BIRTH CERTIFICATES.
The way I see it there are two problems with all birth certificates with nonconsenting babies: First of all, a child can not give consent yet. A Birth Certificate assigned by the choice of an expert at our birth or giving the choice to our parents take away the right of the child. It totally… Continue reading The problem with ALL BIRTH CERTIFICATES.
I will now use MOGAI instead of LGBTQIA+
Today marks the FIRST day of my changing everything I say to MOGAI, instead of LGBTQIA+ MOGAI is said: "Mo" + "gay" and/or M-O-G-A-I "MOGAI" stands for marginalized orientations, marginalized gender alignments, and intersex. M = Marginalized O = Orientations: Both Sexual Orientation and Romantic Orientation. GA = Gender Alignments: Both Gender Identity and Gender… Continue reading I will now use MOGAI instead of LGBTQIA+

These Human Rights Organizations and many more say it is time to Stop Intersex Genital Mutilation (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 consent.… Continue reading These Human Rights Organizations and many more say it is time to Stop Intersex Genital Mutilation (IGM).
Trying to belong to a binary-only world: My Biological Sex, My Legal Sex, My Gender Identity, My Gender Expression, and My Sexual Orientation.
How the government and I define my existence: My Biological Sex: Intersex My Legal Sex: Intersex.

A Woman’s Penis & A Man’s Vagina
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 A Woman’s Penis & A Man’s Vagina
