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.

Every Human Deserves Self-Determination

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

The male/female binary is a Myth!

I am a man, with a few boy parts, that most call girl parts. But that is only because they believe in lies. They are all boy parts if they are my parts because I am a boy.  I might be non-conforming, but they belong to me, and my legal gender is male.  As for… Continue reading 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.

Dear Ally, It is your responsibility to keep us safe, and here is how.

This meme was not created so much for me, since I am OUT publicly. I created it mostly for those who deserve to live stealth lives and not be outed. They did not ask for it like i did, and to be "OUT" is not always safe. Now that I am a public figure, and… Continue reading Dear Ally, It is your responsibility to keep us safe, and here is how.

Poem: STOP the Unthinkable!

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.

The FEMALE PENIS and the MALE VAGINA; and explaining this to our children.

Our kids are proof that it is about educating only about the male/female 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 existed, as soon as I realized I was not a disorder and was actually born intersex… Continue reading The FEMALE PENIS and the MALE VAGINA; and explaining this to our children.
