Human Rights Violations, My Intersex Story

Surviving ‘Psychic​ Mutilation’, and how I was psychiatrically and medically violated and erased.

When I was born there was no way to define my true biological sex accurately.  This is because I was born intersex.  Because of this, they thought it would be in my best interest to assign me female and raise me a girl when I was never supposed to be a girl. By adolescence, being… Continue reading Surviving ‘Psychic​ Mutilation’, and how I was psychiatrically and medically violated and erased.

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.

My Anatomical Intersex Body Does Not Create My Gender Identity

  Here is my blog in response to lots of people assuming that my gender identity would be "Gender Neutral" due to being born intersex. This assumption is profound and not accurate for so many of us born anatomically intersex.
