STOP! Surgery Does Not Create an Intersex Child’s Gender

I WISH THIS WORLD WOULD STOP EQUATING GENITALS and Body Parts to GENDER. I believe it is harming intersex children, gender non-conforming people and those transgender people who want genital integrity and the genitals they were born with. NOTE:   Biological Sex is of or relating to the physical, whereas gender is of or relating… Continue reading STOP! Surgery Does Not Create an Intersex Child’s Gender

Why when I go to the Emergency Room I mark Both the male and female box.

  It is important to understand that for me, being born in the middle as intersex, I need to be medically and socially recognized, as both male and female, to get the proper care I might be needing if I show up at the hospital emergency room, or have to be hospitalized.

Four Things most were never taught in Sex Ed, that Intersex People Know:  Gender is a social construct that was created by us humans. Gender cannot be determined by our genitals, reproductive system, hormones.  This means that gender cannot be determined by the size of one's clitoris or penis, the presence of testicles or ovaries,… Continue reading Four Things most were never taught in Sex Ed, that Intersex People Know: With Judi Herring, M.D.
