Well as a member of the LGBT(QI) community: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Sexual, Queer/Questioning, Hermaphrodite/Intersex community…I normally do not fit into the standards of the LGBT community as a hermaphrodite (The OLDER term) most people in the community do not believe that intersex (The MODERN term) people should be in the community but we all do fight for the same ecstatic rights.
Now on to the story, as a student at OHS (Ontario High School) and being a hermaphrodite that likely narrows down who I could be to one person. Since being a hermaphrodite is a rare and few far in between chance you all likely know who I am…Rumors spread around fast and almost everyone knows me. Besides what you may: Hear, see, feel, think or believe about me I am actually a very gentle, nice, clumsy but yet a smart person.
You likely want me to get to the good stuff? So here we go — A hermaphrodite is someone who is GENETICALLY BORN as both a male and a female…This includes the penis and the vagina…BUT! BUT! Unlike what most people believe, the two sex organs are not apart; It’s like a fusion between the both in the midst. No I cannot get myself pregnant. No I cannot “do myself” and no I cannot get “morning wood” or the such.
The thing is when I was born along with other herms., the parents can choose right then and there if they want the vagina sewed up or the penis sewed away…But because of the brave and strong LGBTQI community (Woot!); This cannot be done as much as the last decade or so — Because imagine growing up as an “male” but internally your mind, your brain and your heart is all female. So basically it’s like being a female with a pooner…You wouldn’t want that? And that’s why it has been voided.
The case with me is I take hormones and they keep my testosterone and estrogen at BALANCED levels so that I don’t have to worry about being too male or too female… (Explains my in between voice and both male and female details) which sort of sits right in the middle till I decide when I’m 18 what I truly desire to be. The penis I have is non-active and yes I have my period and can have a baby and like any typical girl it comes out the hoochy…LOL.
The penis I would tell most people is like having EXTRA SKIN, it has the mold and shape of a pen but is just dead skin and it doesn’t exist in the outside like a typical male but it’s buried WAY WAY deep in my no-no zone.
I’ve grown up to flourish and accept myself along with others for whom they are (Including Bobby) and love every person for being who they are. If all people were the shades (Black or white) then why do we have gray in the middle?
People do pick on me everyday and harass me…Calling me, “Slut”, “Man”, “Lady GaGa”, “Man-Lady” and other immature names and I’m not going to sit here and lie saying it doesn’t hurt because it does hurt but I’ve learned not to take the simple stuff and make more heavy rain then people already shower upon me.
Ending this VERY VERY LONG story…I just wish to say to any and all people who; Take the pain that people give you ’cause obviously it’s going to be there but retro-swap it into a lavish energy that you can use to leave those haters in the dust. FIN. >:]
