What It’s Like To Be Intersex?

intersexBelow is a beautiful short little video that helps illustrate the fact that gender and sex are simply not black and white. Intersex people are born with biological elements from both sexes.

I post this because the legacy of homosexuality having been in the DSM and also what is called gender dysphoria (which is still in the DSM). Issues of sexuality that often get highly pathologized. Sexuality and gender both, like so many things, can often be considered in terms of a spectrum and can also be very fluid and changing in pretty much anyone, really. The more we appreciate these natural variations the more we can open our hearts to all the differences among us human beings.

Guess which one of us has testes?
