Transsexual Empire

I’ve recently obtained a copy of Transsexual Empire by Janice Raymond and you can get your updated copy from here too:

Trans Empire

Janice Raymond’s book is essentially about how men are invading into women’s space by artificially reconstructing themselves to be female looking. Janice Raymond also asserts the same of female to male transsexuals, females invading into men’s space, but with less emphasis.

The below video is used to be titled “From 45X/46XY True Hermaphrodite with CAH to Intersex Fraudster”

Rudy Alaniz has been on YouTube for years asserting ‘she’ is a True Hermaphrodite, has Congenital Adrenal Virilising Hyperplasia, and has 45X/46XY mosaicism, and that ‘she’ is in the process of transitioning male to female. I’ve already proven ‘her’ True Hermaphrodite and 45X/46XY claims to be absolute lies. However ‘her’ claims to be in transition and to have CAH I’ve not yet proven to be false, but I think the likelihood of them being true is so close to zero they might as well be zero.

Rudy Alaniz aka Mishakailana as ‘she’ is known as on YouTube has been in transition ever since I first started on YouTube in 2008, which has to be the longest transition I have ever heard of, for a male to female transsexual. It has been so long and so little change has occurred I’m more inclined to believe these days that ‘she’ is in fact a Female Impersonator.

It appears to me that ‘radical feminists’ and persons with Disorders of Sex Development have a great deal in common when it comes to healthy males invading into spaces set aside for them. Of course persons with Disorders of Sex Development can be either male or female and can be, or not, feminists. My criticism of is of persons who pretend to be Transsexual using a medical diagnosis to justify their claims, which are in fact medically impossible.

The latest false claimant of a Disorder of Sex Development to justify transitioning to female is Chloe Prince, who pretended to be diagnosed with Klinefelter’s syndrome, and still pretends to be diagnosed with Klinefelter’s syndrome. However, Transsexualism is a bona fide psychiatric illness characterised by no other disorder of a sexual, or gender identity, being present.

The diagnosis is not made if the individual has a concurrent physical intersex condition (e.g., androgen insensitivity syndrome or congenital adrenal hyperplasia) (Criteria C). In proposed changes to DSM 5 the statement is “B. The individual does not have an intersex or sexual development condition”

Therefore their claim of a medical diagnosis automatically cancels their Transsexual claim. If these people really do have the Disorders of Sex Development they claim, they would never get any Medical Insurance, or other medical surgical assistance, to transition, as they don’t qualify. If they have accessed Insurance to pay for their transition surgery, this is strong indication that they do not have a Disorder of Sex Development.

Originally I intended to debunk Janice Raymond’s book as I thought it heavily relied on information from disgraced psychologist Dr John Money, when determining at which point gender identity is established. As it happens she has as much support for his theories as many other people, not much at all.

Transsexual male to constructed female, are not female. They did not live the life of a female, with the prejudice Janice Raymond describes. They were in fact the privileged male, and then decided that they wanted what they perceive as the best of both worlds.

They tend to be males who have had their family, I’ve observed. They’re heterosexual, when the’re male attracted to females. They are reconstructed males to look like females, that makes perfect sense to me.

The motivation for their reconstruction is what Janice Raymond seeks to explain. I can’t, I can’t understand why any normal fertile man wants to emasculate himself, when he can just as easily dress up as a female, and pretend like Mishakailana, Nicky K D Chaleunphone, and Gavan Coleman.

None of these people have lived a life as a female would, and cannot possibly claim to be female as a result, yet they all do. They are all anatomical males with a Y chromosome and at least 1 X. They are also very good friends, suggesting a certain ‘copy cat’ mentality.

I can’t understand females who say they feel male, yet don’t understand why biological males they grew up with reject their transition. All the males ever knew the person as was female, how can they be expected to accept the person as male, simply because s/he says so? And why, if she feels so male, does she not understand her biological male counterparts?

Wanting to be male or female is not the same as living male or female. I tend to agree with Janice Raymond.

The Bullies who are the YouTube staff

Yeup that’s right, and let’s not forget Anmoose “Mr fixit with lies” the anonymous supposed ‘helper’ when his beloved YouTube staff mates get caught with their pants down. I have never seen that ‘guy’ ever agree that an obviously wrong decision by the YouTube staff was “wrong.”

This Blog was shut down twice by the YouTube staff since it’s been running. The first time they took 65 complaints of a certain type to trigger an automatic shut down. The last time it was 41 complaints, I asked WordPress if the next time will only take 18 complaints? I didn’t get a reply to that question.

This video was removed by the YouTube staff for Hate Speech:

I’m certain though the length of time the reinstatement took had more to do with the content of this blog itself, the real content, the particular images I used, that I can prove I got from YouTube and Google links. But the YouTube staff don’t like admitting they use a different standard for my content than anybody elses content. I have to abide by rules that literally change daily, person by person. YouTube is run by thugs, by people who have no integrity, no ethics, they are literally intellectual morons.

As I said one other time, even if you tripped over the dead rotting corpse of a YouTube employee you’d not know it, they’re aware they’re so demented they can’t possibly make themselves publicly known, and they sure as the shit that’s attracted to their filthy bodies, know they don’t make right decisions as they’re professional thugs. They hate Freedom of Expression, EXCEPT when their supported thug users on YouTube, and they do it. They are absolute total scum.

If my complaints to Google Help Forums were all ‘pie in the sky hot air’ why would the YouTube staff pay me so much careful attention? Why are silent videos removed supposedly for ‘hate speech?’ Why are videos laughing at person criticising me deemed ‘hate speech’ when they consist of only his words, but his words posted by him on YouTube are not ‘hate speech?’

I can only think of one answer, I cause those lazy bastards to be disciplined, maybe even fired? They hurt badly when I point out their hypocrisy, and when they lose arguments with non YouTube sites like WordPress. Just today I advertised my blog, this blog, on Google where Anmoose decided to step in for his/her YouTube employee friends, trying to convince me what s/he says is true! What a pathetic dope! Anmoose pops in every time his/her mates get exposed for what they are! So what happens here, oh suddenly more visits than from days before, that’s pretty quick thugs, try not to crush yourselves to death in the rush to get here! Actually no, DO crush yourselves to death!

I have received a message from the YouTube staff on the Google Forums that I’m to be their ‘scapegoat.’ A scapegoat, otherwise known as a ‘sacrificial lamb’ is required when the powers that be, KNOW their activities are immoral, deceitful, possibly illegal, mean and nasty. Being a ‘scapegoat’ is all the evidence I need to prove all that I say is 100% true. The YouTube staff are lazy good for nothing bastards!

Gavan Coleman the thug the YouTube staff have been supporting and encouraging for years, hates his outrageous comments being made more public, since he makes them in the public realm anyway. If I were a Muslim and somebody made a video about Allah, the YouTube staff would allow it under the terms of ‘Freedom of Speech.’ But if Gavan Coleman were a Muslim and I made a video about Allah the YouTube staff would remove it under the terms of ‘Hate Speech.’ That is the blatant hypocrisy of the YouTube staff.

As for Gavan Coleman, who’s name is mentioned on video on YouTube, here, he claims to be ‘intersex’ and supports silly notions along that spectrum that all XXY males are ‘intersex.’ So him criticising me for asking American teenage boys to be more thoughtful of XXY boys who develop gynaecomastia, would not go down very well with his ‘intersex’ supporters. Gavan would definitely be seen as the hypocritical thug I know him well to be, by anybody else viewing his diabolical comments.

Diabolical Coleman
So by way of inactivity the YouTube staff support harassment of all XXY boys who develop gynaecomastia, and Gavan Coleman the so called ‘intersex’ man who likes to laugh at my naked body, but refuses to let me comment where he laughs. I have disagreements with YouTube and with Gavan Coleman and even though they probably don’t have any direct contact with one another, by the inaction of the YouTube staff, he and they are co-conspirators in harassment.

This is the comment Gavan Coleman replied to:

Sensible comment

So obviously Gavan Coleman does not want the below video seen, and by that inaction I mentioned above the YouTube staff have decided to support him, by claiming the video breaches something, what I wonder? And now the Vimeo staff have deemed the same video breaches their rules too, meaning, I can be attacked but I’m not allowed to reply, which seems awfully unfair to me.

What about you?

“So this is the latest Video the YouTube staff have deemed ‘inappropriate.’ That’s the anonymous, nameless, faceless, gutless, useless, lazy, bastard, YouTube staff. Never ever believe your enemies on YouTube remove your videos, only 2 people can remove a video, the owner of it, and the YouTube staff.”

It should be our CHOICE

I made this post as on Facebook a woman from somewhere said most American women don’t know what an uncircumcised penis looks like. I might be able to believe that too! I have the Kinsey New Report on Sex from a few years ago, and there are images in that of uncircumcised adult penises, and they don’t look anything like what an uncircumcised penis does actually look like. The artist simply doesn’t know, has never seen a penis whole to draw an accurate picture of. So this blog is a very good way to show American women what an uncircumcised penis really does look like from childhood to adulthood. So complaining about this blog’s images is ridiculous, how dumb do you people want to be, and how dumb do you want everybody else to be?

There are naked, nude, bare, unclothed, true to form, images of male and female genitals here, and I encourage you all to study them, carefully. If this is your first read, don’t be shocked – unless it’s your image I’m using. 🙂 Frankly though if you’re an American woman, I’m told you wouldn’t know what even your own partners genitals look like, so won’t know whose picture I’m using!

This blog post gets right up the nose of the YouTube staff, I have had videos removed by the YouTube staff for incorporating images like those shown in the below video. It’s not just that the very same images, in the very same context, are uploaded by other people to YouTube, but that as my videos were removed then I thought it appropriate that all the others be removed also, so I flagged them, and they’re all still there, on YouTube. I should change the name of my blog to “The YouTube staff are a bunch of bastards” as they require of me compliance to rules they do not impose on anybody else. If you watch this video all the way though you will find moving pictures just like the still images I use here:

And for those weirdo’s on Google Help Forum and Google+ the above video shows very young children, completely naked, full frontal, genitals clearly visible, so what the FUCK are you talking about?
There is also a teenage boy in the video having a fully erect penis, granted filmed with a heat sensitive camera, but it’s still pretty obvious it’s a teenage boy having an erection of his penis.

Then when I shared this page with the YouTube staff this blog was shut down for 4 days, FOUR DAYS! Apparently for breaching the advertising rules and ‘Terms of Service’ of WordPress. It was’t just an automatic reaction to a certain type of complaint, there was much more to it than that, and I made a video detailing what I believe is the true reason for it’s closure. You can watch it here if you’re so inclined?

Penis

A normal penis, in its entirety at the cusp of puberty.

There should be so much affinity between groups opposing infant genital cutting, but alas there isn’t. There just can’t be. Some of the others are of the religions & cultures that support the cutting, and they were cut themselves. If they know what sex the child is, if the child is male, if the child has a foreskin, then chopping the flesh shorter or off is normal human behaviour, that the ‘intersex’ lobbyists support, even if simply by way of ignoring the topic.

The site I found this image at refer to this as an "Ambiguity."   I must be dim, it looks like a clitoris to me!

The site I found this image at refers to this as an “Ambiguity.” I must be dim, it looks like a clitoris to me!

So if a child is female and her clitoris is deemed ‘too long’ shortening it is just common sense, right? I mean we just can’t have females out there with clitorises challenging the domain of the penis, can we, no of course not! What a silly suggestion, a clitoris as long as a penis, what a will they think of next?

apparently this is good looking?

A partially severed penis

Oh I just saw something horrific, the baby screams throughout, (can I even recall it without throwing up?) I’ll try my best. There’s a religion out there that regards it as a right to cut part of a boys penis off, within 8 days of birth, and some of the adherents to this butchery actually suck the severed end of the penis to dispose of the blood.

Literally just thinking about the process makes me feel sick. What sense of right exists in the mind of the man (as it’s never a woman) who does this? I find it mind boggling to understand how the proponents of this barbarism can defend it. This is ‘culture shock’ to me! According to the description of the link above this practice is “misunderstood” – it seem the adherents are also ‘masters of the UNDERSTATEMENT.’ This is beyond reason, this cannot be understood!

So those of us who are intact don’t we have a good looking penis. I’m told most American women have never seen an intact penis, and wouldn’t know what one looked like to judge. Is that another stupid idea? I can’t understand how most American woman aren’t curious as to what an intact penis looks like. I think my penis with its foreskin is absolutely gorgeous.

Normal penis

Intact

In the terms of male sexuality, I can't think of anything more good looking than a normal penis.

In the terms of male sexuality, I can’t think of anything more good looking than a normal complete penis.

Yes the veins do go all the way to the end.

Yes the veins do go all the way to the end.

It really should be my right to determine what happens to my penis, as it ought to be the right of all people to say what happens to their genitals, this is a matter of OWNERSHIP. You do not OWN your children parents out there. Maybe I could CHOOSE get a tattoo, or I could CHOOSE to get a piercing, but I think normal looking is good enough, for me, as my CHOICE.

The other curious thing, (well I think it’s curious), is that so much emphasis is place on penis size, which is in fact irrelevant when it comes to sexual pleasure. But testicular size is VERY important when it comes to EVERYTHING to do with puberty, maturity, full development, health and welfare. Yes mothers out there, if your sons balls aren’t big or getting big, take him to see a doctor. And if your male partners balls aren’t big, your children weren’t fathered by him. 😛 So as heterosexual American females are so concerned about their potential sons penis, before they’ve even had any sons, try to remember, big balls means big families, and tiny balls means there’s something wrong.

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!

My Official Position on XXY/Klinefelter’s syndrome being Intersex

Originally posted to OII’s Facebook page & Curtis E Hinkle:
Hello Curtis, having now educated myself as to what OII is all about, or mostly about, I see no justification for OII to include anymore the symptoms of disease Klinefelter’s syndrome as an Intersex condition.

All arguments that KS could be considered intersex fail. Such as most of the additional X that brings about the symptoms of disease KS represents, is inactivated. It has no impact on an XXY’s life from soon after fertilisation. The only genes that do have an effect, located on the pseudo-autosomal region of the X’s, have been mapped by the Human Genome Project and none have been found to have anything at all to do with sex or gender. Indeed, in all males, the only chromosome that can be said to be a “sex” chromosome is the Y with an active SRY gene that effectively says “make a male.”

The genitalia of XXY males is “unambiguously male” at birth and the symptoms of hypogonadism seen in men with Klinefelter’s syndrome are not unique to them. Any man who has atrophied testes develops the same symptoms as men with classic KS. Therefore the only difference in the terms of the disease seminiferous tubule dysgenesis and XY men with atrophied testes is the age of onset of hypogonadism. There is absolutely nothing intersex about all men with supernumerary X chromosomes, regardless of how many additional X’s there are.

It is “folklore genetics” and psychiatric illness that causes some men with supernumerary X’s to assume they’re intersex.

Also, OII’s stated position in almost all matters to do with health care is “no intervention.” That policy might sound just and reasonable for persons born with “differences in sex” but it is not acceptable for many XXY and variant boys who regularly require educational, psychological, psychiatric, and medical interventions throughout their lives. To propose any other course and actually follow it will be detrimental to good health.

I propose that men with Klinefelter’s syndrome be regarded as any other XY transsexual man, pre-op, when it comes to describing them as “intersex.” And that a statement to that effect ought to be made in your lengthy articles about inclusions and exclusions. The only justification these men have to claim intersex is psychiatric illness.

Michael Noble – Australian Misguided Academic

Michael Noble on OII Australia says:

Even though it’s evident that I possess a blend of male and female chromosomes, the medical and legal professions had proclaimed that it doesn’t matter how many X chromosomes a person may have, if they possess even one Y chromosome, they are legally classified as a male. In recent years, however, this pedantic definition has been challenged, thus enabling XXY to be legitimately recognized, in some sections of the academic world, as an intersex condition.”

Ummm Michael,  Michael Noble, the ‘owner’ of a degree in Communications and Creative Writing, you’re that Michael Noble? Unless you’re completely thick you MUST realise that every XY man on the planet has a “blend of male and female chromosomes” or did sex education pass you by along with puberty?

And of course being that you’re so well educated, (except in sex),  you MUST realise that it was not the Y that gave you your male sex determination, but your physical appearance at birth! Even you admit you were not diagnosed until age 23, therefore for 23 years you were just a run of the mill, ordinary old Australian liar, like plenty of your ignorant countrymen.

We do not put an R in CAN’T we don’t even pronounce an R, you ignorant bastards* just can’t listen!  

Anyway, no matter how many X’s are present only 1 is fully active, and the only parts of the additional X’s that are active are in the PAR, the pseudo-autosomal region of the X.  Oh and every female is the same, they have two X’s and 1 is inactivated, except for the genes in the PAR.  Therefore the more PAR genes  interacting I predict the greater the degree of difficulty experienced by the affected persons.

So the definition of male chromosomally is not “pedantic” but simply “accurate.”  It’s probably your refusal to take the level of hormone associated with your sex, and the hot hot sun you experience in your barren wasteland of a country, that causes you to imagine every X is equally active, even in females!

What is postulated, that may also cause problems for XXY’s is skewed inactivation. It’s just another thing that separates XXY males from our XX female counterparts.  They have random X inactivation, but XXY males such as your totally male self Michael, probably have non random (or skewed) X inactivation.

The more we learn Michael the less impressive your argument becomes, not that it was ever “impressive” I was just being generous!  You’ll get used New Zealanders, we’re like that, generous!

Combined with the PAR genes, and skewed inactivation in XXY males, the reasons for the development of Klinefelter’s syndrome, also known as, “The symptoms of the disease seminiferous tubule dysgenesis”  has probably now been isolated?  It is not that the additional X is female in character Michael, nor that you got yours from your mother – as you claim, (although you’ve never provided evidence of your claim), but rather much more complicated reasons, reasons that are not subject to Folklore genetics!

Michael goes on to say:

“The existence of intersex people has been concealed for many decades, because they threaten the man-made laws of nature, which dictate there are two sexes: male and female. Yet, nature does not manifest in comfortable, finite boxes. Rather it exists as infinite spectra of variation. But to our modern scientific mind this variation threatens to unleash chaos. And what drives science? The desire to control nature.”

Now then Michael, that is complete drivel. The desire of science is not to control nature, but to understand the reasons why things are the way they are, and in the terms of medical science, to alleviate suffering.  If you feel controlled by the medical profession, that may well be your particular psychiatric disease showing through?  Paranoid states & hysterical syndromes are noted features in many men said to have Klinefelter’s syndrome, or as I would say, XXY men.

That pesky little additional X plays a major role in all our lives, and no matter how much you want to pretend I regard it as meaningless, in fact I regard it as the major factor that causes the under educated like yourself, to believe they are mistreated by the medical profession. However Michael, I’m well adjusted, having sought and received proper health care from the very beginning. I took my doctors advice and I do not believe the medical profession has the desires you claim, without any justification.

And again Michael continues with his paranoid ramblings:

“Eventually, the medical profession could no longer pretend that biological sex was confined to the polar binaries of male and female, but rather some infants presented characteristics of both sexes. Yet, instead of simply accepting that anatomical sex could exist as a spectrum of possibilities, the intersex variations were medicalized: thus requiring surgery and/or hormone reassignment therapies in order to ‘cure’ such ‘aberrations’ and ‘disorders’. In other words, the medical profession believed they could play god and determine which sex and gender a child would be reassigned to, and raised as. And they did this, not for the benefit of the ‘afflicted’ individual, but rather to make the medical community, parents, and society in general, feel better.”

I’m certain, completely and totally certain, the medical profession did not set about to make the lives of infants unbearable, nor was there any conspiracy to ruin your life Michael.  Have you actually read this crap you wrote Michael?  Where there are errors in anatomical sex that YOU would see Michael, if you were ever the parent of a child with ambiguity of genitalia, which I expect would be the only way YOU could see, you may well have a different opinion?

You’re not a parent, you’ll never be a parent, you have no concept of parenting and the desire of parents to have their children treated fairly in society.  I can see that some medical procedures as being unnecessary, such as circumcision, but to lump all procedures into that classification by a person such as yourself is somewhat presumptuous.  I believe the medical profession was acting with the best interests of the child in mind,  and for the most part did an excellent job.   Yes they did screw up from time to time, and most of those children had no anatomical differences in sex, until they were butchered, they WERE anatomically NORMAL.

I must remind you that you started your little rampage with the notion that gender plays no role in the determination of one’s supposed intersex status, but here you want to include gender as part of your highly emotively written diatribe.  I wonder how you would feel if you did see the untreated results in an infant that had no interventions, that was born with ambiguity of genitalia?  The indication from opinions delivered by men such as yourself, who were not diagnosed early enough with Klinefelter’s syndrome, suggests the outcomes of no intervention would be disastrous.  It’s a very difficult situation for all involved, and a wee bit of compassion for the parents and individuals concerned would be appreciated.  Blaming and shaming Michael does your argument no good at all.  People are born with disorders Michael,  look around you.

 

*”Bastards” is a term of endearment in Australian common usage lingo.

The medical profession does not refer to Klinefelter’s syndrome as Intersex

You might see the medical profession regarding Klinefelter’s syndrome as an intersex condition, but I don’t. I’m referred to in medical literature as “a person…..” A PERSON, first and foremost I’m a person….. a person suffering from….. a disease, It’s called collectively as there are a great many disorders in this area, A disorder of Sex Differentiation. This is something I have, not something I am. I am a man with a sex differentiation disorder.

Now then, not really surprisingly, EVERYBODY on the planet has “differentiation” of their sex. Everybody is on that sex continuum, and yes it is the medical profession that determines where people fit on that continuum, which to me seems kinda logical really as it’s the medical profession that treats those with such severe “differentiation” that they won’t be able to happily exist in society without their assistance. And it’s not just a matter of appearance, there are other serious health issues to consider as well, like cancer, osteoporosis, and auto-immune diseases three debilitating illnesses that if they weren’t treated for prevention or cure, would kill us. This isn’t just a “lovey dovey” description of the shape and function of genitals, this is life and death!

Then there’s the influence of society on the medical profession. Yes it does happen. Everything that happens is not the medical profession dictating to parents, often it’s the parents dictating to the medical profession, the parents who are in regular, normally sex differentiated society. They don’t want their little darlings growing up being ridiculed by all the rest of society. Who would? If a child is born with cleft palate and the medical profession says “we’ll wait until the child is older to decide if s/he really wants to eat and speak properly” I can assure you the parents would not accept that decision. They would go absolutely nuts!

XXY boys have a penis when born, and testes and scrotum, and if their penis is deemed “too small” they’re given low level testosterone therapy, they’re not castrated and turned into girls! The conditions of sex differentiation that exist that bring about sex assignment surgeries are when sex is unknown, where just looking isn’t an absolute indicator.
XXY boys do not fit into that category.

This is where I have sympathy for Transsexual people, I know what genital surgery feels like when adult. If it were in any way possible for my surgeries to be performed when I was a baby, I’m sure I’d have opted for it then, if I could. But of course my differentiation disorder didn’t develop until after the onset of puberty, and there was no need to do repair surgery before adulthood. So I have nothing in common in that regard with persons born with ambiguous genitalia, even though we’re loosely joined with a medical descriptive of the disorders we suffer from.

I find it fascinating that some intersex activists argue against the use of measuring equipment to gauge the size of a clitoris or penis to determine where the infant is on the differentiation scale, yet at the same time see some XXY men use their smallness of penis as their main justification for claiming intersex. It’s seems like a contradiction. How well virilised an infant is, is the standard to determine where the child fits on the sex differentiation continuum. That’s the way it is in the womb, we all start off the same, then were virilised if there’s the right genes and testosterone is present too. Whatever the chromosomes children who are not virilised are female, and those that are partially might be considered ambiguous.

The medical profession is simply trying to determine where a person ought to be on the sex continuum, and they get a lot of criticism because they care.
