"female/male bodied": 

I’m a man, this is my body. It doesn’t matter what I was assigned at birth, this is my body and I am a man, and therefore this body is a man’s body, and therefore a male body

this is erasure of intersex people

this is erasure of nonbinary people

you don’t actually give a shit about gender, you’re asking about genitals, and unless you’re a doctor it’s none of your fucking business

and if you ARE a doctor, you need to figure your shit out so you don’t alienate your trans patients and make them less likely to seek medical help due to dysphoria

the term you’re looking for is "assigned female/male at birth" or "afab/amab"

"born a man/woman" (also "used to be a woman/man"):

trans people weren’t born cis people and then turned trans; just because it takes us a while to figure out who we are doesn’t mean we were ever somebody else

society is cisnormative, and lies to people, and pretends that trans identities don’t exist and aren’t valid, telling trans people that they are cis over and over again since birth like a mantra, so trans people internalize that and believe it, until the evidence to the contrary piles up so high they can’t deny it anymore. That evidence has been piling up since birth; trans people were never cis people

this is erasure of intersex people

this is erasure of nonbinary people

using these terms incorrectly makes it impossible to use them correctly for nonbinary people who DO identify as having started out as one thing and changed to something else

the term you’re looking for is “raised as a man/woman”

"male/female parts/genitalia":

again, I’m a man, these are my parts, therefor they are male parts, everybody needs to get the fuck over it

Yes, I have breasts and that gives me dysphoria and I want them removed, THANKS FOR REMINDING ME, but they are male breasts

Yes I have a vagina. Again, this gives me dysphoria, you are an asshole for reminding me. Again, it is a male vagina since I am a man

this is erasure of intersex people

this is erasure of nonbinary people

Unless you are a doctor my genitals are none of your fucking business

If you ARE a doctor, you need to start using medical terminology right now, because you’re a medical professional so I think you can use the word “penis” and “vagina” without melting like the Wicked Witch of the West

Doctors using this kind of incorrect terminology are alienating their trans patients and making them less likely to seek medical help due to dysphoria. Trans people already have ENOUGH trouble with getting medical help, don’t fuck it up more

the term you’re looking for is "penis/vagina/uterus/genitals" or "testes/ovaries" or (and this one’s easy) "chest"

"female/male hormones":

cis men and cis women BOTH have estrogen and progesterone and testosterone. Intersex people have all of these hormones naturally as well

there are cis women who have high levels of testosterone and low levels of estrogen and progesterone, and there are cis men with high levels of estrogen and progesterone and low levels of testosterone

these hormones are not specific to one sex or another, and DEFINITELY not specific to one gender or another

this term is hurtful not only to trans people but also people with pcos, people who are undergoing or have gone through menopause, and other medical causes for variations in hormone levels

this is erasure of intersex people

this is erasure of nonbinary people

the terms you are looking for, shockingly enough, are "estrogen" "progesterone" and “testosterone”

All cis followers please read this.

less “if you’re cis you shouldn’t use these pronouns” and more “hey if you feel good with those pronouns you’re probably not cis.”

help more people experiment with their gender and stop telling everyone who isn’t 100% sure of their transness that they’re cis.

harmalade:

if you accidentally misgender someone, or say the wrong name, just correct yourself in the same manner as if you called a cis person by the wrong name or pronouns, which is not unknown because we are all capable of verbal slips.

sometimes i accidentally call people my dog’s name, or i call them “mom”

the right way to do this is “[wrong name], excuse me, [correct name]” or “[wrong pronoun], I’m sorry [correct pronoun]”

if you accidentally mess up someone’s pronouns, do not call attention to it by falling over yourself to apologize.

conversely, do not just move on and hope they didn’t notice. they definitely noticed. not correcting yourself is offensive, and pretending that you didn’t mess up is a form of gaslighting.

if you feel like going the extra mile, apologize the next time you’re alone with them, without excuses. say “I’m sorry that I misgendered you” or “I’m sorry called you the wrong name.” 
do not say “it’s so hard, and i keep forgetting! I’m so bad!” trans people hear this over and over, and the message is that they should apologize for being what they are.
if someone close to you has changed their name and/or pronouns, and you’re having a difficult time with it, maybe you should practice at home.

Information for intersex allies

Download this file as a PDF.

What is intersex?

Intersex is a term that relates to a range of physical traits or variations that lie between ideals of male and female. Intersex people are born with physical, hormonal or genetic features that are neither wholly female nor wholly male; or a combination of female and male; or neither female nor male. Many forms of intersex exist; it is a spectrum or umbrella term, rather than a single category. Intersex differences may be apparent at birth. Some common intersex variations are diagnosed prenatally. Some intersex traits become apparent at puberty, or when trying to conceive, or through random chance.

How many intersex people are there?

The lowest popular statistic is around 1 in 2,000 people (.05% of births) but a more likely figure is closer to 1.7%. This makes intersex differences about as common as red hair.

Are intersex individuals hermaphrodites?

Biologically, no. Hermaphrodites (such as snails) possess fully functioning sets of both “male” and “female” sex organs. This is impossible in mammals. Linguistically, the word originates in the Greek myth of Hermaphroditus who was both male and female, having elements of both sexes.

In the recent past, some intersex diagnoses were termed “pseudo-hermaphrodites” or “true-hermaphrodites”. While some intersex people use the term, others find it stigmatising due to that medical history. If in doubt, it is best only used by intersex people.

Are intersex individuals sick?

Intersex people, like all people, have health issues. In a few diagnoses, immediate medical attention is needed from birth, but being intersex is not a health issue in and of itself. Natural intersex bodies are most often healthy. Intersex people frequently need hormone replacement as a result of medical intervention.

Why are intersex individuals subjected to medical intervention?

Medical intervention attempts to make intersex individuals’ bodies conform to ideals of male or female. Current medical protocols are based on the ideas that infant genital surgery will “minimise family concern and distress” and “mitigate the risks of stigmatisation and gender-identity confusion”. Surgical interventions intrinsically focus on appearance, and not sensation or sexual function. Childhood cosmetic genital surgeries are also problematic as children cannot consent to them. Adolescents, and even adults, have also reported feeling pressured by doctors and family to conform to societal norms. Some doctors still believe that disclosure of a person’s intersex status would be too alarming.

Very many intersex people suffer the physical and emotional effects of surgery, and related shame and secrecy. At a fundamental level, homophobia, intolerance and ancient superstitions underpin contemporary mistreatment of intersex people.

What is DSD? Is this the same as intersex?

In 2006, the medical community replaced the term intersex with “Disorders of Sex Development” or DSD. DSD reinforces the idea that intersex traits are individual medical conditions or disorders that need to be fixed. Today, some intersex people use the label – especially those who were taught DSD by their parents or doctors since the term’s inception. Intersex people are free to use any label, and the term intersex remains widespread today.

We believe that stigmatising language leads to poor mental health, marginalisation, and exclusion from human rights and social institutions. The term intersex promotes equality and human rights for people born with atypical sex characteristics.

Do all intersex individuals identify as male or female, or in between?

Intersex is not about gender identity; it is a lived experience of the body. Intersex people have a broad range of gender identities, just like non-intersex people. An intersex person may identify as male, female, both, between, X, intersex, intersex man, intersex woman, or none of these. Even so, an intersex person may or may not have obvious physical differences from gender norms.

Are intersex people transgender?

A minority of intersex people change gender, and some of them may self-identify as transgender, but almost all intersex people have had medical treatment to confirm their sex. Often that intervention was something they had no choice about. Many will not fully identify with their assigned gender. This is part of the intersex experience, but it doesn’t make us transgender.

Are intersex people gay or lesbian, or queer?

It depends on the individual, how they define their gender and identity, how they present, and who they form relationships with. Every intersex person is different. Like all people, some intersex individuals are LGBT and others are not, but LGBT activism has fought for the rights of people who fall outside of expected binary sex and gender norms. Intersex is part of LGBTI because of intersex status and a shared experience of homophobia, not because of sexual orientation or gender identity.

What are intersex activists’ goals?

The goals of the intersex movement are to raise awareness, and achieve an equal place in society. We seek the right to bodily autonomy, the right to a life without stigma and discrimination, and the right to a life without shame and secrecy.

How to be a good ally

Consider what you do to support intersex inclusion in health and human rights initiatives.

Change your language and frame of reference. Intersex status is distinct from both sexual orientation and gender identity. These are each recognised in the federal Sex Discrimination Act.

Put intersex people and intersex-led organisations front and centre when talking about intersex.

Many medical studies of intersex people explicitly identify gender identity issues and non-heterosexual behaviours as reasons for medical treatment. Non-consensual surgery is an LGBTI issue as it shows what can happen when non-heteronormative people are established to be “born this way”. Ally with our call to end normalising interventions on intersex children.

Adopt federal Guidelines on gender recognition, and offer everyone F, M and X options if you have to record gender in your workplace. Go further and support multiple options. Consider whether your workplace needs to record information on sex, gender and title. Can you offer an option to opt out?

Intersex people should be included in campaigns for marriage equality, but we are not included in same-sex marriage. Marriages in Australia have been annulled on the basis that one party was neither fully male nor fully female. Include intersex in education, service access, and in employment and anti-bullying policies designed to prevent harassment and discrimination.

Follow and share intersex issues on social networks.

Some of my favorite chastity cage photos. I would love to trade places with any of them — or, better yet, all of them. The smooth skin from being closely shaved, the beautiful lingerie and dresses and heels — I love them. Maybe it’s the hidden feminine side of me. All are beautiful and exude a sense of feminine sexuality that I identify with and embrace.
