So I play the role of male, knowing that I am biologically neither male nor female. Concerns over an absent period led my parents and I to seek answers at a nearby women's health center. We were told I had typically male chromosomes and no ovaries.Their office didn't have expertise in intersexuality, so we consulted a prominent research endocrinologist about an hour away. I had been raised as male since birth, as I looked like a "normal" male.
Before the final operation (castration) was due at age 16, I backed out, and was allowed to go back to a male role. I was so happy to be so unique, and I was so happy I'd have some weapon up my sleeve to prove my hated high school biology teacher wrong during her lessons on biological sex.I worked my way up on very small estrogen doses from the age of 15 to 20, and now I take the same birth control pills any XX woman would take. I often think about how I went through this process completely artificially.It felt so neat and controlled, versus how I'm told puberty often is.I witnessed the bodies of my friends and younger siblings begin their transformation to womanhood.I was very self-conscious and aware of my undeveloped breasts, straight torso, and sparse pubic hair.I went to a female-only school from age 9, had a new identity, lived as girl, and adapted OK. I dealt with menstruation, but I never accepted I was going to be a "normal wife and mother." And eventually I realized I was drawn to women, sexually. Woman A: Being intersex determined my sex life at first, but now it is barely a blip.
But some "friends" excluded me from groups and so on. This takes some explaining of my particular situation.
I wore a padded bra whenever I left the house and compulsively dieted so my body's frame would compliment my flat chest.
Determined to rid self-consciousness forever, I underwent a breast augmentation at 18. No male puberty happened, as I had opted to live as female from age 9.
They're the too often forgotten "I" at the end of LGBTQI, but according to the Intersex Society of North America, 1 in every 100 people is born with a body that doesn't fit what we typically think of as "male" or "female." Although some intersex people are identified at birth based on the appearance of their genitalia, others discover their status when puberty hits (or doesn't hit), and others still reach old age without ever learning about their condition. Myself, I look completely female, but happen to have XY chromosomes.
Woman A: Being intersex means being born with some characteristics that don't neatly fit into the "normal" spectrum of human sexual development (were there such a thing).
This is the second way in which I found [being intersex] to be a blessing in disguise.
