Intersex occurs about 1 in every 1500 to 2000 births, the same as Cerebral Palsy or people born with red hair. ¬†Why is such a relatively common condition so unheard of?
Because of shame caused by lack of education and understanding.
As a lesbian myself I have experienced shame, but I have also seen great progress over the years from when the “L word” was unspoken, even to ourselves, to legalized gay marriage in many countries.
Let’s do the same for Intersex. Let’s educate people. Let’s stop the shame and fight for visibility, gender neutral terminology, and equality.
