This is a story from 20/20 about intersex children who are often mutilated by doctors who believe that the child should be assigned a physical gender as infants.
I was born as an intersex child and noone ever told me about the biological condition I was born with & I understand now it was the policy never to reveal these secrets to the child. the result was I grew up confused about where I was really a male or if I was a female and suffered lots of anxiety & depression over my gender issues.
At the age of 15 & while I was going through puberty my body was developing naturally in a female direction while I still had male genitalia. I wanted to change my sex to be fully female but I was scared about whether or not I would be accepted in society. I felt this way because I was already being bullied & abused & even raped by bigoted scum-bags of society. I was also called a faggot at times when the real faggots were those who were so adamant in sexually abusing me while I still had male genitalia.
After years of fighting off suicidal thoughts & suffering from severe anxiety & depression over my true gender identity, I made the decision to fully transition and become a female.
Nowadays when I go out anywhere I am accepted & respected like any other woman - you would not know that I was a intersexed/transsexual person if I didnt tell you. So I am very positive, confident & happy in my true gender identity and my role in life is now to educate other people about people like myself.
I am a writer for a cultural magazine for public education & awareness of gender issues. So I have joined Liveleak to reach out and deliver information through the media I post in hope that it can improve the way that some members of this community tolerate people who were born with gender defects.
If you post hateful, derogatory, hateful or abusive comments I might delete them, but then again I might not. I might choose to make an example out of such bigotry instead while also blocking you. Be aware that transgender people in most countries around the globe are now protected by human rights laws so we no longer have to tolerate transphobic type abuse and therefore I will not tolerate anyone else's crap here.
Finally I am also pleasantly surprised to have been contacted by a few transgender people on this site who encourage me & fully support me being here in the role that I have undertaken here. I am happy to answer fair questions to satisfy enquiring minds. So you don't have to post publicly if you don't want to, so feel free to drop me a private message if there is anything you wish to discuss that cannot be said in front of others.
My only hope that in time there will be more people just like me who are strong enough to be contributing here along side me.
Thank you for your interest in my media topics.
