Gina Wilson says:
“Intersex is not a disease, a disorder, a medical “condition”.”
The title of my blog is “Intersex is a Generic Term.” Maybe I made a mistake, maybe I should have titled this blog “Klinefelter’s syndrome is the symptoms of disease?” Ahhh, even XXY guys and KS’ers get upset with me when I say that! Ohhh can’t speak the obvious, or type it! Do you know some deluded souls actually believe the symptoms of the disease they’re treated for, (KS’ers) is a representation of who they actually are? (XXY guys) It is outrageous what some people believe. But then, some people even believe the bible is true, or in Father Christmas, and in fairies at the bottom of the bloody garden. Gina Wilsons’ views fit firmly in that category of childhood fantasy, and false imaginations, or even magical thinking. Which is a psychiatric illness by the way!
Oh and who is Gina Wilson? I dunno, somebody, who thinks she’s somebody, who thinks she knows what to tell me about my sex, as if she’s given herself all knowing rights over my body and my sex. Anybody’d think Gina Wilson was me, the way she inserts her views of herself into other people’s existence, and mine. Maybe the medical condition Gina Wilson doesn’t have, that doesn’t affect her primary and/or secondary sex characteristics, and has no (as she doesn’t have a condition) effect on her reproductive ability….. what utter drivel! Notice how much sense that doesn’t make? Well that’s intersex according to Gina Wilson. It has no impact on ones life, any part of life, ever, as it’s not a “disease, a disorder, a medical “condition”. Well I do have a medical condition, that when seen is the symptoms of disease, which renders me infertile. So I really don’t understand what Gina Wilson THINKS she talking about, when she clearly hasn’t got a fucking clue!
How can it be that anything that escapes this ignorant womans mouth relates to me? Who cares what stupidity Gina Wilson has to say? Is she some kind of medical specialist, or doctor, or nurse, or researcher? Actually I don’t know, I’ve not taken the time to study Gina Wilson, as I’ve taken the time to study the disease I’m treated for. I bet you all know the disease I’m treated for is called Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis, which is effectively the same as being a eunuch. For most XXY guys testes are present, they even function before puberty, and tend to fail rather dramatically after the onset of puberty, caused by that disease I mentioned, “Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis.” And what might cause that disease, I bet you’re not asking? But you can tell I’m being sarcastic, and I’ll answer for you, additional X genetic material, usually expressed as an additional X SEX chromosome. Of course I don’t usually say “sex chromosome” as all the other bits of genetic information are called ‘autosomes’ therefore all chromosomes must be sex chromosomes, as there are no sex autosomes. But then people who don’t know refer to all autosomes and chromosomes as “chromosomes” and everything gets all bloody confused for no good reason.
So; Intersex is a Generic term as it encompasses a great many, totally unrelated, medical conditions, that affect the primary and/or secondary sex characteristics, and without those medical conditions “intersex” would not exist. Speaking of biological males; if all boys were born with testes in their scrotum, if all boys were born with XY sex chromosomes, if all boys were born with a penis, there would be no malformations of genitalia, no mishaps in cell division, no male infertility, and no intersex males. The same type of argument exists for females but I’m not female and I’ll let females speak for themselves.
Is Gina Wilson the only person in OII (Organisation Intersex International) who ignores the blatantly obvious in favour of magical thinking? By no means, of course not! Curtis E Hinkle also has the same delusion. I had a bit of a run in with Curtis, who was for years on my friend list on Facebook, but alas I didn’t know Curtis too can only abide people who agree with his every nonsensical thought. Curtis can’t be corrected. Curtis can’t make mistakes. Curtis always interprets the bible correctly, and Curtis is a controller of conversation. On Curtis’s Facebook there’s such a thing as “off topic.”
Please remember, I believe the bible is bullshit. It’s an interesting story, covers generations of a people, their customs, religious practices, ideas, interactions with other peoples in the region they existed in, but is far from the word of God. But for this article I’ll assume it has merit in the terms of an event that actually happened.
Please go to “Matthew 19:12” actually that’s just a bit of the story, the story really begins at Matthew 19:3 where questions of marriage and divorce were asked of the lead character Jesus, and he went into a series of explanations as to why divorce was allowed, or not. Then in Matthew 19:10 a specific question is asked of Jesus’ by his disciples, “If this is the situation between husband and wife, is it better not to marry?” So you can read this whole topic is about marriage & divorce. Curtis being an entrenched non scholar of bible text assumes the only part of relevance is the answer Jesus gives in Matthew 19:12, and takes no account at all of any of the preceding verses. Curtis believes the part where Jesus answers and says “….For some are eunuchs because they were born that way….” and this is a representation in the bible of a condition that would be referred to as ‘intersex’ today. And of course I disagree, this is not intersex, this character is as male today as he was in biblical times. And when Curtis read my response he was so infuriated, he blocked me! I can’t actually read what I said anymore but it goes something like this, “Well I don’t, the medical profession doesn’t, in fact nobody but people like you do” (that is refer to these men as intersex.) For more than a few people the word ‘intersex’ is actually an insult, not that Curtis or Gina care what others feel or think of the words they use to describe them. A curious situation then exists, where those advocating understanding of themselves are the least willing to understand others who don’t share their point of view, and of course the best way to ignore another point of view is not talk to people with them.
So this is what OII and Gina Wilson and Curtis E Hinkle say:
“Intersex is not a disease, a disorder, a medical “condition”.”
Which is just fine I suppose for them, they don’t need medical care, they can walk away from the medical profession any time they like, but I’m sure I read just recently that Curtis was taking testosterone? I guess that drug is available for non medical reasons, obtained from non medical sources? Whatever his reason to take it, it’s not medical, he doesn’t have a medical condition that causes intersex in him. So if the medical profession actually take Gina Wilson or Curtis E Hinkle seriously, can you imagine an XXY boy arriving at a doctors surgery for therapy, only to be told “go away, what you have is a natural representation of normal, you’re not sick, come back when you’ve got a real health issue.” And can you imagine OII when they hear of such a situation jumping up and down like chooks with their heads decapitated, protesting “Our people are being refused medical care!”
I sure can believe that myself!
