1. Introduction

I first learned about the social construction of sex from a lovely trans woman named Kiki.

She said, “You may have heard before that gender is socially constructed, while sex is biological. But I’m here to tell you that what you’ve heard isn’t true. Sex is socially constructed too. So are you ready for the truth? Are you going to take the red pill or the blue pill?”

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.

Bridge Building, Intersex Awareness, Intersex Erasure

Here is another sad example of Intersex Erasure:

It is another example of intersex erasure.  Below I explain… Continue reading Here is another sad example of Intersex Erasure:
