While I sit in Facebook Jail

While I sit in Facebook Jail. My thoughts: To every single endosex/cisgender/heterosexual who talks about us intersex people to get "wows" and "laughs" and views at our expense.  And worse, by using the wrong language, but Facebook doesn't take you down. Maybe you will someday figure out there is an intersex person's heart on the other… Continue reading While I sit in Facebook Jail

Human Rights Violations, Jim Costich, The Man with the Hidden Playground

Our kids are proof that it is about educating only about the male/female binary, and intersex erasure, that messes up the truth around natural bodily variations existing in us humans.  You see, our children were taught that intersex bodies and transgender bodies existed.  We educated them as soon as I realized I was not a… Continue reading The FEMALE PENIS and the MALE VAGINA; and explaining this to our children.
