Types of intersexuals
« on: March 29, 2007, 02:06:17 pm »
What is intersexuality (or hermaphroditism)?

Our culture conceives sex anatomy as a dichotomy: humans come in two
sexes, conceived of as so different as to be nearly different species.
However, developmental embryology, as well as the existence of
intersexuals, proves this to be a cultural construction. Anatomic sex
differentiation occurs on a male/female continuum, and there are
several dimensions.
