I recently saw a video by Blaire White (who’s a Transgender Woman who speaks out against SJWs on YouTube), where she read some comments by Social Justice Warriors (SJWs). One of the comments she read was about intersex people, and it read: “Don’t intersex people prove that gender isn’t binary?” Of course, Blaire and I agree that intersex people don’t prove that gender isn’t binary and this inspired me to make a comment about that on her video’s comment section. I initially was going to write a shorter comment but I ended up writing something longer that looked more like a blog post, so I posted a shorter version of it. I decided to turn the long post into blog post since I thought it would make for some great material for my blog, so that’s what I bring you today! So here are my thoughts on people saying that intersex people somewhat ‘prove’ that gender isn’t a binary:
“I find the fact that these dumb SWJs are using people with intersex conditions like myself to further their gender identity politics agenda appalling. All of this just feels pretty derogatory to me. What’s even more distressing is the fact that these crazy SJWs (and feminists) have brainwashed other intersex people into thinking that having an intersex condition is somehow ‘normal’, as well as fooling them into thinking that intersex is a ‘third sex’ and this whole ‘intersex people prove that gender isn’t binary’ nonsense. Some even take offense when someone says that intersex is a birth defect.
As a person with an intersex condition, I can very much say that this is indeed a birth defect. This birth defect is the reason why I had a gender error at birth – in which I was assumed to be biologically female when I was in actuality biologically male, something that I didn’t find out until I got older due to the nature of my condition – and had to go through the tedious legal process of gender reassignment (fortunately for me, I was born in and still live in California so the process was less of a pain in the ass to do) and was forced to live as someone I wasn’t for the first 21 years of my life and missed out on a lot as a result. Its the reason why I have to take Testosterone Replacement Therapy for as long as I live in order to keep me healthy since my body has a hard time producing its own (I have primary male hypogonadism – which means I have ‘broken balls’, lol). And its the reason why I have to use a prosthetic penis for sex (since I was born with a micropenis), as well as for “packing” in order to look (and feel) more like a normal man.
For these SJWs to say that its “normal” is just dishonest and further from the truth – its really no different than telling kids that Santa Claus is real. Being intersex can be a bit of a handicap and its why we often have to resort to these treatments. Its not because of the so-called “gender binary” or the patriarchy, but rather, its so we can live normal, regular lives, and its fine just as long as we have full autonomy and full, informed consent over it. And, oh yeah, most of us identify as either male or female (I, of course, identify as male), and we’re either male of female despite the size of our genitals or the presence – or lack thereof – certain reproductive organs or hormone levels. People with my condition are biologically male and strongly identify as such. We’re often forced to live as girls growing up and so gender reassignment isn’t uncommon among my kind. The only reason I even mention that is because these SJWs and feminists say that gender is a social construct and that we’re ‘proof’ that gender isn’t binary. Well here’s proof that gender isn’t a social construct and that there is a gender binary.
People, like myself, who are afflicted by these conditions are trying to raise awareness that these conditions exist so we can educate people more about these these conditions, get more research done into our conditions so we can better understand our bodies, get more legal protections, and get doctors to stop mutilating babies that are born with intersex conditions (most of the time, operations on intersex babies are unnecessary – there is no medical need for them unless there is something, like a blocked urethra, that actually requires it – and actually do more harm than good) and instead give both the patients and their parents psychotherapy and access to support groups, as well as get doctors to be more honest and transparent towards intersex patients and their parents. SJWs are derailing this and doing more harm than good by infusing their identity politics into our cause, which might make people think that we’re a bunch of crazy SJWs. I fear that people aren’t going to take us seriously if the SJWs keep doing this shit and having their way.”
Bottom line is, SJWs need to stop speaking for us. They’re only doing more harm than good. These people don’t understand how its like to live with an intersex condition and are only using us to further promote their ideology – an ideology which has no scientific basis whatsoever and is only based on feelings and emotion. They especially need to stop exploiting young intersex people who have gone through the trauma of genital mutilation, and are trying to come to terms over what happened to them when they were younger. What they’re doing sounds a lot like creationism and is really no different than telling a kid that god, Santa Claus, and the easter bunny are real. It is dishonest and exploitative, and only does more harm than good. The reality is that there is no valid scientific evidence that there are more than two genders (or sexes, for that matter). Even if you’re “genderfluid”, you’re still either male or female (both in terms of gender and sex). Why else do you think that trans people exist? Not only does this kind of stuff harm the intersex community, but it also harms the trans community. I’m sorry to say this but you’re not “non-binary”, you’re just a “gender trender”, or a “trans trender” if you claim to be a “non-binary transgender” person.
Blaire’s video is called This Is Your Brain On Social Justice and you can watch it here. If you like seeing SJWs be taken down and are looking for a place to interact with other like-minded people – especially if you’re transgender and want see a trans person speaking out against the SJW machine that seems to have taken over the transgender community, then I highly recommend you subscribe to Blaire’s channel!
I’ll be posting more of my thoughts on the current state of the intersex rights movement and the current-day intersex community soon (and the LGBTI rights movement and community as a whole). I’ll see you all next time!
