Every Human Deserves Self-Determination

It is impossible for me to please everyone in the intersex and transgender community.   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 of us are cis-gender (agree with our birth assignment) and heterosexual, and not… 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. 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 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.

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 and transgender bodies existed.  We educated them as soon as I realized I was not a… Continue reading The FEMALE PENIS and the MALE VAGINA; and explaining this to our children.

The difference between transgender and intersex and the harm that wrong language can bring

Language is very important, and language can do harm. Here is one example to why: The biggest priority most intersex activist/advocates/educators have, like me, is decreasing genital mutilation in babies born with intersex traits and decreasing our bodies being aborted when detected before birth. This means "Born in the wrong body" transgender theories, can do… Continue reading The difference between transgender and intersex and the harm that wrong language can bring

My thoughts about the Third Gender Box, Gender Neutral or Gender X

I was born with intersex variations, here is my autobiography.   My body does not comply with the rules that would put me into either the biological male box or the biological female box. So at my birth, and during my life, and up until the emancipation of my true gender, I was forced, mostly… Continue reading My thoughts about the Third Gender Box, Gender Neutral or Gender X
