Intersex People

I am not intersex (to my knowledge, a lot of people don’t know unless extensive tests are carried out), and therefore this post will not be a long one because I don’t know a massive amount on the subject. Instead today I want to give some links to explain what it can mean.

A Definition of Intersex

From the Intersex Society of North America

“Intersex” is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male.

Intersex isn’t just one thing, it isn’t ‘having a bit of both’ as some people so nicely say, it is a lot more than that. Intersex is an umbrella term – similar in the way that trans is too. It covers a lot of different forms of diagnosis, if you’d like to know a little more please do have a look at the links next up.

Links

Hopefully these will be helpful for those of you who’d like to know more, a lot of them have useful links to other resources. These are just posts on websites I have found and so I sadly can’t vouch for their validity.
