Do you three ever watch TV?

“….Um, wh-what’s TV??”

I FIND I MUST SECOND THAT QUESTION, WHAT IS TEA VEE?

…Heh, we don’t have that good of technology here. I know what’cha talkin’ about, but we ain’t that far down the road.

While the first two look very puzzled, Teddy just shrugs his shoulders nonchalantly, not answering the question for their sake.

If anyone tells you that there are 2-3 sexes in the world I want you to just go ahead and slap them.

I was making a chart this morning, but by the time I got to the twentieth configuration of primary sex characteristics, I got bored and angry, so just fucking slap them. Don’t bother giving them a chart, it’s a pain in the ass to produce anyway.

Here’s some non-chart-form lists.

Primary sex is defined by taking one or more item from each list (roughly, because just as there are double dominant intersex conditions there are double recessive ones too and it’s a whole thing). All potential combinations of these options can be said to constitute their own primary sex category.

Chromosomes:

  • XX
  • XY
  • X/X0
  • Mosaic
  • XXY
  • XXXY
  • XXX
  • XYY
  • Others (there are so many, like I think you can live with up to five chromosomes? So many)

Hormones

  • Estrogenized
  • Androgenized
  • Double dominant (high levels of both estrogenic and androgenic hormones)
  • Double recessive (low or no sex hormones)

Gonads

  • Testicle/es
  • Ovary/ies
  • Ovotestes
  • Gonads
  • Testicular agenesis
  • Gonadal dysgenesis
  • Probably more, I’m not a professional here

Genitals

  • Penis
  • Vagina
  • Pseudovaginal pouch
  • Clitoromegaly
  • Micropenis
  • Hypospadias
  • Diphallia
  • Definitely more but I am Tired™

There’s like at least several dozen primary sexes, and that’s before secondary characteristic development comes into play and the point is biological sex is a fucking mass hallucination. Slap anyone who says otherwise.

(This is not a professionally sourced and cited resource post please do not treat this like it’s some kind of all powerful reference work I literally just made it in a fit of rage in abt ten minutes based on stuff I already know I didn’t even research it be careful use google etc and so forth)

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when the Pride Flags start circulating and I have to deal with The Flag That Shall Not Be Named.

So just as a casual, low key reminder, the intersex pride flag is this one:

[Image Description] The intersex flag: a field of yellow with a thick purple circle centered on it.[End description]

The one with the shitty gradient blur pink and blue center bars is old, out of date, and frankly insulting, what with the conflation of intersexuality and transness, to say nothing of the suggestion that all intersex people are just horrible mish-mashes of “male” and “female,” which obviously leads to people assuming that they can and should call us fuckening h*rmaphrodites. 

I understand that it is more “historic” but it’s not the one that we actually use here and today.

Obviously I’m not going to single you our if you post that flag or pride graphics with that flag, because frankly I’m still flattered when people remember we exist.

But if you’re on the look out for this kind of information, just, like.

This is the one.

You will absolutely see people claim, btw, that this isn’t the intersex pride flag, and rather that it’s a “logo” for an australia intersex organization. Shockingly, this isn’t accurate.

The yellow and purple intersex pride flag was first showcased that the Australia branch of OII (Organisation Intersex International, AKA the only intersex group I trust, check them out when you get a chance). It has since been widely adopted by a number of intersex organizations, groups, and individuals, to replace the- have I mentioned the old flag basically says we’re automatically trans+h*rmaphroditic I just cant get over that- old flag.

And I know, I’m really fucking aggressive about this. It’s a pet peeve. It drives me up a wall. I realize I over react, that’s why I’m getting it out here now, instead of waiting until I choke and die on Old Flag Swag later this month.

Just like.

This is the flag.

And yes, if you’ve made rad awesome pride graphics with the old flag, post them. Remembering that intersex people exist (we are here, and by fuck, we are queer) is still a big step IMO.

But like, if you’ve been thinking about making cool pride graphics, but haven’t yet, here’s your official two part notice.

intersex people are real, and also, we are complete beings in our own right and not blurry frankenstein’s monsters made up of other things.

ETA: Also, like, if you are intersex and the old flag brings you comfort, pride, a sense of identity and belonging, please keep using it for yourself and your work, no matter how publically aimed that work is. That is your right, and I want to encourage you to be comfortable, and do whatever makes you comfortable, up to and including using the old flag, up to and including referring to yourself as being h*rmaphroditic, up to and including anything you want to do that makes you feel more secure in your identity as an intersex person.

This post has a very specific aim, and it’s to educate (and a little bit berate) perisex allies who aren’t doing their research, not to tell you what you have to do as an intersex individual.
