Where did “assigned male/female at birth” come from?

Yes, it is true that “assigned male/female at birth” came from the intersex community first and the transgender community now uses it too. Some in the intersex community say the transgender community appropriated it. Let me explain why this hurt. Typically an endosex person's sex is observed at birth and simply written down. When born intersex… Continue reading Where did “assigned male/female at birth” come from?

For Intersex Day of Solidarity and Remembrance 2020

The Chalk Board that Anunnaki and His Husband James Made for Intersex Awareness Day 2015 | All the bad words I have been called.

June is CAH Awareness Month | What it means to me in 2020

Up until this year, I typically have not celebrated June CAH Awareness month, because of the CAH (Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) organizations and groups not even acknowledging my sex is intersex and that I am an intersex man.  I do believe that this is all due to their prejudice and bias.  Serendipitously, CAH Awareness Month lands… Continue reading June is CAH Awareness Month | What it means to me in 2020

The United States 2020 Census Didn’t Include My Sex!

The United States 2020 Census didn't include my sex.   You see, my legal existence is not intersex, the way that I was born.   September 2018 this erroneous error on my original birth certificate was corrected to my true sex: intersex.   I am Proudly the First in Colorado to get an Intersex Birth… Continue reading The United States 2020 Census Didn’t Include My Sex!

Poem: Them | By Sara Kaplan

They look in the mirror and it is not right. They strive for perfection, and what’s reflected back doesn’t work for them. They aren’t comfortable being bound by boxes and binaries. They are themselves although that’s an intimidating place to be. They hold their ground and position with a ferocious stubbornness. Proven first, with their… Continue reading Poem: Them | By Sara Kaplan

Poem: Castle | By Aleksander Beryozkin

Мне сложно верить людям Мне сложно открыть своё сердце 💔 Мне сложно довериться собственной интуиции Мне легче спроецировать свой страх на других Мне легче поверить, что меня снова кинут, предадут, обманут. Мне легче обидеть и захлопнуть дверь 🚪. Меня столько раз оставляли, обижали, разрушали мои надежды, бросали в меня камни, били, уничтожали... Что когда кто-то… Continue reading Poem: Castle | By Aleksander Beryozkin

Why trans hate, transphobia and homophobia are​ hurting millions of intersex kids.

If you can, please take note of all the organizations that support CAH (Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia and The Cares Foundation), XXY/Klinefelter's Syndrome Organizations, and even Hypospadias Organizations. When you visit them, you will sadly see that all of them utterly deny that we can have intersectionality with LGBTQ+, transgender and queer people on their websites.… Continue reading Why trans hate, transphobia and homophobia are​ hurting millions of intersex kids.

Poem: Her, him and me.

  She died so that I could live. Her spirit literally moved over in surrender and in peace. Do you get what I just told you? † My son was told she would be gone by 2015. His spirit guide was right. Our kids now have two dads. I never dreamed as a woman. †… Continue reading Poem: Her, him and me.
