DSD Debates…….2012 in Review

I was popping by YouTube yesterday (14/12/12) looking for a particular video, finding it I discovered a series of nasty comments by a miserable moron. Of course I’m never going to be polite about that fool who lies about everything, and anything. I think he sees truth as something that can be manipulated, rather than something that he can actually speak, or type, or think. So I replied, why not, it’s not like he can receive the information as it was said, or remember a single nasty thing he ever did, or if he can see it as nasty, that’s how screwed up his brain is.

Why are there so few normal people involved in the DSD debates? Normal people with normal everyday type accounts of their relatively normal lives? Transsexual people want to come up with outrageous stories of how they came to be, as if the weirdness of Transsexualism isn’t enough! I am certain no normal person can understand why someone born with perfectly normal looking genitals can have them reconstituted to something completely different, like would you? It’s one thing to accept that transsexuals are there, even be friends with them, but it’s something entirely different to understand why they do what they do. In my opinion.

There are people with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH), a very hard to understand DSD that involves over expression prenatally of adrenal hormones, in various different ways. Most males and females with CAH have no ambiguity of their genitalia and cannot be described with any words that suggests they do. It is just as ridiculous for people with CAH and ambiguity of their genitalia to say all people with CAH are the same as them, as it is for all the CAH people with no ambiguity to say all with CAH are like them. Oh and the over expression of adrenal hormones continues in post-natal life, and can be life threatening. Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia is a very serious disease.

Then there’s the sex chromosome abnormalities, and diseases under the Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS) umbrella. These people are females mostly, have XY sex chromosomes, are infertile. Strangely, it’s just really weird, these people do not grow up thinking they’re really male. Why is it that way, why are AIS women so normal compared to some other SCA’s where the owners are so abnormal, thinking the weirdest things about their sex, when a damn near blind man on a speeding steed, glimpses them pissing behind a tree can see they’re male, but they can’t, and they’re not Transsexuals, they’re XXY guys! And do you know women with Turner syndrome (X0) can just as easily have a missing Y chromosome as a missing X, but they can see the reality of their sex, just by looking, unlike some XXY guys who seem to suffer ‘genital blindness.’ Or is that just plain ‘bloody mindedness?’

That video I mentioned to start with, it seems to have changed! I know my memory is shocking so it may not have? Then again, it is about XXY/KS and surprisingly my memory of those matters is keyed in permanently to remembering. So the videos description no longer mentions Chris Somers, the XXY guy who claims to have ovaries. I need proof of that, that’s so unusual, really really weird. When I first saw him on an Australian documentary programme he was talking about having Klinefelter’s syndrome, he had a really long beard – so he must have been taking testosterone therapy – and he was grizzling about how his fiancee had recently left him because he was infertile. What a bastard, 2 ovaries and 2 testes and none of them function! Of course I don’t believe he’s got any ovaries, his hormone therapy would definitely screw them over!

So the video doesn’t mention him anymore in the description, I guess it’s easier to distance himself from his real testes that he describes in that video, than it is to distance himself from his imaginary ovaries that he refers to in his thesis. There are just so many weird people in the DSD debates! What I really ought to do is go to Antarctica myself and plant a New Zealand flag on behalf of all Australians, that’ll get their hackles up. How dare I assume to represent all Australians without even asking, and with a New Zealand flag of all things! But that’s what Chris Somers did, claiming to represent all XXY people he planted his flag that represents himself, on behalf all XXY’s without asking. What a feat to travel to Antarctica, what a waste of effort to do so representing people he doesn’t even know. How presumptuous!

And all these funny people who don’t know what sex they are get involved in support organisations that assist people who really do have genuine concerns about their sex, but refuse to acknowledge they do have any medical condition at all. They think in their weird minds that what their illness causes is a natural representation of human. They definitely do not like the idea that the medical profession has labelled them as having a disease, even though they do have a disease and can’t be with the label they prefer without a disease. Their chosen label is as indicative of disease as any other label, so why bitch and moan about the label?

Then when the stories of all the leaders of these support groups are examined for accuracy or truthfulness, they all come up short. It’s just amazing how they expect greater protection from discrimination, and lie to obtain it. I fail to see how someone born with CAH or AIS, two completely different medical conditions, can equally be discriminated against? How can they be discriminated against at all, I’m buggered of I know, and I have asked, and apart from their medical conditions not being mentioned in legislation, there is no way they can be discriminated against. Their claims are all hot air, smoke and mirrors, and total untruths. Their female Chairperson at the moment made a YouTube video declaring she went to a gynecologist, pardon? A gynecologist, why does a woman go to see a gynecologist if she’s not sick? And the discussion was about a feature of her body, her genitals. The current chairperson of this group has a medical condition that requires ongoing medical care that affects the presentation of her genitals, which is NORMAL, yeah right! The only people who require ongoing medical care throughout their lives are those with chronic conditions.

Mani Mitchell’s an interesting person. She’s from New Zealand, and she even came to one of our AGM’s once. I invited her. She came along, met all the guys briefly, then after her talk she had to go. Were there just too many normal people there, she does seem to want to hang around with some pretty weird people. I’ve never heard of her talking about the XXY and XY/XXY and XXXY and XXYY guys she met in person, but often refers to the one XXY guy she discovered in San Francisco, he’s special, we’re not! From my understanding we did have 2 gay guys there at our AGM, and they all described themselves as men, and boys, you know males basically. Does Mani just not want to admit that most XXY guys see themselves as they really are, male? And Mani, back then she had no facial hair like she does now. I guess she’s metamorphosing to be a better fit to the world of the outwardly unusual? I did ask Mani what condition she had that caused her to originally at birth be thought of as male, and then had her sex changed to female, but she side stepped the question.

Mani didn’t report having had any surgery until 2002, prior to then her sex was changed after 1 year of being assigned male, on paper. As time has progressed she has let more information come to light. In one account she says her mother was told at her birth “Oh my god it’s a Hermaphrodite” but I’m tending away from believing that account as there’s no reason for her to have been assigned male, then a year later changed to female, from Hermaphroditism. Immediate investigations would have taken place, and there’d be no year of waiting. In the above video Mani claims to have had sex changing surgery at age 8, which kind of throws her other statements about herself into doubt. If a child is a hermaphrodite, known at birth, sent home for a whole year, then her sex is reassigned female, then 7 years later surgery is performed, come on, give the truth a break! To me it makes no sense at all.

Most of the stuff she talks about now she knew in 1993/4 whenever our AGM was, but refused to talk about it. I think there’s a certain amount of fabrication going on here, and with nobody to verify her new account as both her parents are dead, it would be easy to fashion a few things to fit, here and there. I have no doubt she was born with masculinised genitalia, but she was no hermaphrodite as hermaphroditism is, and was then, a bona fide medical condition that would have attracted a great deal of investigation, and sex would have been accurately assigned soon after birth, and if surgery was required it would gave been performed then. The mistake of course was that she was lied to for years about the truth of her birth, well that was her original story anyway. Then she only discovered later in life, about age 40, that she was originally called Bruce. I don’t know what her karyotype is, she’s never mentioned it, and I have no idea if she fertile or not.

And my story, it’s online, it never changes, the past can’t be undone, and it can’t be reinvented either. Truth is truth. There are a few things I don’t have records of as the records were destroyed before I was old enough to obtain them on my own account, which is a drag! But I press on, doing my best to inform people of truths about XXY guys and Klinefelter’s syndrome, that most of them seem to suffer from, in varying degrees. And here is my latest video detailing what anybody can expect to see in any male person, in his mid 50’s. I make no presences at all, I look, sound and are male. Those who have problems with how XXY males really are should go and see themselves a psychiatrist to acquire acceptance. A real XXY guy, all male, nothing inter about my sex.

Rehashing the Obvious

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!
