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?”

The way I see it: A Penis and a Vagina does not Create our Gender Identity

I like to teach that gender is our personality and that a penis and a vagina does not create our gender identity.  I feel that my gender identity is a personal feeling and a way I internally feel about myself.  My gender identity has nothing to do with my chromosomes, hormones, genitals or reproductive system.… Continue reading The way I see it: A Penis and a Vagina does not Create our Gender Identity

I feel it is now time to create more allies, create more supportive organizations, and give a way for organizations that want to become intersex inclusive direction on how they can help us end these atrocities that intersex people face.  These human rights violations are in regards to aborting healthy intersex fetuses, and ending non-consenting… Continue reading Why I feel INTERSEX should be added to the LGBTQ rainbow

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!

Adding the “I” responsibly to LGBT

A letter I shared on: Mx. Anunnaki Ray, Gender/Intersex Activist Facebook Page: Sending a note, to simply say thank you again, for listening, and sharing this page. It is sometimes hard for people to hear about a culture different than their own, especially when daily the news can be so depressing and unimaginable.

Intersex Activist, Questions and Answers

What I believe:

I believe that the Self-Determination of Gender is a human right for all humans.  Gender to me, is like our personality.  It has nothing to do with our genitals, reproductive systems, chromosomes or hormones.  Therefore a woman can have a female penis, and a man can have a man's vagina.  I also believe that if… Continue reading What I believe:

The two of us, born intersex and named ‘Antoinette’ at our birth.

God-incidence or Serendipity?  Whatever you call it, it felt like a miracle.   I was finally coming to terms with who I was as a human being.  This was after having a lifetime of not feeling real, and being thrown away by many doctors, therapist and psychiatrists, who had tried to 'fix me'.   I was… Continue reading The two of us, born intersex and named ‘Antoinette’ at our birth.

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.
