Medical Complex: Stop Cutting the gay off!

Help us end Transphobia and Homophobia. Some of us believe they are cutting the gay off of innocent nonconsenting intersex children.

While I sit in Facebook Jail

While I sit in Facebook Jail. My thoughts: To every single endosex/cisgender/heterosexual who talks about us intersex people to get "wows" and "laughs" and views at our expense.  And worse, by using the wrong language, but Facebook doesn't take you down. Maybe you will someday figure out there is an intersex person's heart on the other… Continue reading While I sit in Facebook Jail
