More on the Intersex Flag cont'd

Found some sources on Natalie Phox who made the flag in question.

According to these sources:

http://www.trianglelgbt.com/pdfs/clarehistory.pdf

http://queer.ucsc.edu/resources/sexualities.html

Natalie Phox intended for the flag to be for intersex people, not bigender people.

Of course intersex people can use the OII Australia flag. As the information about the flag states, the organisation aimed to create a symbol without gendered pink and blue colors and many people may like that better.

So what say you intersex followers?

We did this, with Pride in Diversity: the employers’ guide to intersex inclusion.

It contains information on intersex bodies, identities, medical issues in the workplace, some short case studies and a whole lot more. It’s also useful for intersex inclusion in service delivery and general reference.

More on the intersex flag

Hey the “actually intersex” Tumblr is pretty good, but their analysis of intersex flags is actually wrong. The pink and blue flag is actually a “bi gender pride” and it was uploaded to Wikipedia by it’s creator as that:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bigender_pride.png

The description is problematic, conflating intersex with non-binary identities, and using slurs.

I don’t have the time right now to try to find when that image was first used, but the fact that they call it an intersex flag and use slurs kind of doesn’t make the case for it being a bigender flag. 

actuallyintersex any feedback?

Bigender followers do you know the history of the flag? Is there another flag that has been used for bigender pride?
