Two diagnoses that bring in the cash $$ for surgeons, psychiatrist, and therapist: Disorders of Sex Development, and Gender Dysphoria

Bottom line: If they can convince us, or our parents, that we are born in the wrong body, there is a TON of money to be made. The two most common diagnosis that leads to genital surgery,  sex reassignment surgery, or therapy are:  Disorder of Sexual Development (DSD), and Gender Dysphoria.   I hope to… Continue reading Two diagnoses that bring in the cash $$ for surgeons, psychiatrist, and therapist: Disorders of Sex Development, and Gender Dysphoria

When you do not include the “I” in your human rights efforts, this is why it hurts me and other people born intersex:

I am not transgender.  I was born intersex.  But since I was raised the wrong gender, and had to reclaim my true gender, Guess what?   Almost everything that can happen to a gay person, lesbian, transgender person, or gender non-conforming queer person, has happened to me.    I now know I am not alone.… Continue reading When you do not include the “I” in your human rights efforts, this is why it hurts me and other people born intersex:

Intersex Bodies are Not an error: My Intersex Story, and the stories of so many others.

Blogs I have written about how intersex is not a defect, a syndrome, or about being disordered: 1) My genitals are not “Normal”, but I don’t think normal is normal. 2) It is time to stop the “normalizing” genital surgery on intersex infants! 3) “It’s too small, let’s make them into a girl!” Yup, this atrocity is still happening… Continue reading Intersex Bodies are Not an error: My Intersex Story, and the stories of so many others.

My genitals are not “Normal”, but I don’t think normal is normal.

I am tired of hearing the words "normal".  Who is truly "normal"?   Is the government and the medical system that powerful that it can declare me, or anyone "defective" or "disordered", when our genitals do not add up to "normal"?  So far the answer is "yes"; And yet, nature created my intersex body and… Continue reading My genitals are not “Normal”, but I don’t think normal is normal.

Why the “I” should come First: I LGBTQA+

Do I pass? What Gender am I?

One's self-determination of gender can come in many forms, and it is not always the male/female binary.  There are other options out there!  All too often, I see that some are not even told or shown that non-binary options are out there. We are expected to live up to this list of expectations, which come… Continue reading Do I pass? What Gender am I?

Seven Names for the SAME thing: Penis, Phallus, Clitoris, Phalloclitoris, Micropenis, Microphalus, and Clitoromegaly.
