The Intersex Masterpost – Everything You Could Ever Want to Know

From a recent Tumblr ask. I would like to bring this over to WordPress so that it is more accessible to people searching for information. More than twenty hours of research, sourcing, formatting, writing, and more than 300 sources peer-reviewed, fully accreditted, and each drawing on many other sourced studies in their own publication later, I give you The Intersex Masterpost.
Originally published on December 29, 2018.
The full text of both parts and an added section on what intersex is and what is categorized as intersex is under the cut.

Trans activists recently tried to start a rumour that “TERF” stickers with razor blades behind them were being found in the women’s bathroom at Manchester Oxford Road train station.

British Transport Police have confirmed that there is no evidence this is true, and consider it a hoax.

Males projecting male violence onto women

For those who aren’t in the know of this anti-radfem fanfiction, this is the picture of the “damage” done by these supposed razor blade stickers.

Come on and try harder; anyone who’s ever been cut by or intentionally cut themselves with a razor will know that dingy little scratch barely visible on the tip of his finger is well-healed over time (definitely did not just happen less than a month ago) and is far too uncritical to be razor damage. Let alone ripping down a sticker with razors behind it would create a strangely-shaped, deep scar set not a straight small cut that looks like an intentionally drawn across incision.

Where exactly is the damage on Erin’s hand?

Supposedly on the second finger from the left, about halfway down the tip, a small barely noticeable pinkish streak about even with the tip of his first finger. It’s probably a papercut he gave himself while listening to MCR in his mother’s bathroom bemoaning that he now has to make “evidence” of his claim against The Terves.

While I think it’s great seeing all the excitement and press coverage about India legalizing gay sex, I think it’s really important to remember that this is NOT India progressing due to Western influence. This is India decolonizing.

The homophobic statute that was overturned is a product of British colonialism in India. Prior to that, India had a rich and vibrant queer community that played important functions in society. There were queer Hindu gods and hijras serve as an example of how queerness in society was venerated. This is not something to patronize India over and congratulate ourselves in the West for. This is a victory for India reclaiming their culture.

Oh my god. If i see one more of these posts in my dash I will murder someone.

Okay, let’s see:

“The homophobic statute that was overturned is a product of British colonialism in India.” 

True. Section 377 was implemented by British Raj in India, possibly as an effort to safeguard Victorian mores.

“Prior to that, India had a rich and vibrant queer community that played important functions in society.”

Say, what??????

Can you please tell me what the “important functions in society” were, my dear fella? Contrary to tumblr’s belief, homophobia was not a western (or christian) invention. We were plenty homophobic on our own, thanks. Literally, the only acceptable ‘queerness’ in society was a laundebaaz (aka, one who does it to men/boys) whereas the gandu (aka the one who takes it up the ass) was considered the lowest of low in society. Even now, gandu is a derogatory word similar to faggot. Does that sound like “venerating queerness” to you dear?

Also, lesbians? LOL. What lesbians?? Funnily enough, even in “a society venerating queerness" lesbianism is practically unheard of. Furthermore, the ‘celebration of queerness” in these cultures is mostly male receiving partners being pushed to the margins of society.

But hey, why consider boring things like reality… when you can have Cool-Tumblr-Version-of-Queer-Feminist-Utopia-Before-the-Whiteys-Fucked-Everything-Up™

brand of history?

“There were queer Hindu gods and hijras serve as an example of how queerness in society was venerated”

Firstly, there “were queer Gods”? What happened to them? Did they die when colonialism happened? Did they go, “Ah… those dastardly British have set foot on India and are imposing their Victorian mores, perhaps we should pack up our bags and leave”? I might be a tad bit uninformed in my “queer Gods”, considering the fact that I was born into and practicing Hinduism since my birth and so has all my forefathers, but according to my knowledge those “Queer Gods” still remained in society. Yet, homophobia persisted. Heck, Sabarimala is one of the most pilgrimage sites (that has the son of ‘Queer Gods’ as the deity), and even now “youthful females” (i.e., women of ages from their first menstruation till menopause) are NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER.

Despite being the son of queer gods, Ayyappa still seems to be misogynistic as fuck.

Secondly, you might wanna brush up on those queer gods and legendary figures… almost in all of them one of the couple gets magically changed to other sex and begets a biological child. Biological procreation and production of progeny – it seems as if even the Gods have to perform and conform to heteronormativity.

Now,

“hijras”

I wish I got dollars for every time a White Ally™ misused or misrepresented hijras. Contrary to popular belief, hijras are not transexuals (at least not all of them). There are different types of hijras – those who were born hermaphrodites, those who castrate themselves and proclaim to be neither man nor woman, those who are homosexual men who crossdress, and those who are men who do not perform masculinity to society’s standards. They are literally gender non-conforming men : either their homosexuality is a deviancy that needed to be corrected; or their lack of assertion of heterosexuality was a mistake to be corrected, or they just liked “girly things” too much.

So, these “venerated positions” that they supposedly held was quite literally the only option left to them – they were kicked out of society and jobs. I know a lot of people on tumblr would say “but they were in kings’ courts and all”. Guess why? They were either entertainers (a part of the dance troupe) because that ‘girly’ job was seen apt for them. Generally, dancers were not seen in positive light.
They were considered at best as courtesans and at worst as prostitutes.

Even now, “attakari” (dancer) is a term used to say a woman is a slut. 

Second option for them was as guards or companions (sahelis). This was to ensure “the purity of noble woman”. After all, when the “purity of the womb” is of the utmost importance, a king/noble wouldn’t even trust male guards with their women. Heck, there are even legends of gnc men being coerced into castration so as to make guards for ladies. That is why they were the guards of many noble’s harems – not because they were valued for their capabilities, but because they couldn’t “damage the property” (i.e., have penetrative sex with the royal’s women). 

Nowadays, most of them cannot get a decent jobs, and literally have to beg in trains and buses to get food on their tables. Oh, this is also a part of the “veneration” : they have no livelihood, so they go and threaten people with curses (their otherness makes them freaky, and according to superstition gives them supernatural powers), so that people will donate some money in fear.

This is not including the young boys and men that were pushed into sex mafia and trafficking.

So, miss me with that “veneration” bullshit.

“This is not something to patronize India over and congratulate ourselves
in the West for. This is a victory for India reclaiming their culture.”

Do you know what I find patronising? White allys

who has read Buzzfeed articles on ‘hijras’ or ‘queerness’ somehow pretending to speak for us. Lauding us  for our extremely open/feminist/queer Culture™

that they know of through exoticized magazines and power yoga videos.

I once read an essay on how Indian patriarchial system countered westernization (in an effort to prevent women from going outside their homes) by claiming that

while British might  be materialistically more advanced than Indians, ~spiritually Indians are better than British~.

The same exotic bullshit is repackaged here, using liberal buzzwords to please tumblr crowd.

Even a cursory reading of any of the ‘third genders’ in various societies will tell you that it’s generally feminine or gay men being kicked out of manhood and forced into a marginalized and feminized role, and they are only sometimes accompanied on these margins by old or infertile women that no one wants to financially support. The best possible role seems to be some forms of spiritually-based celibacy, far too often its various forms of prostitution. Radfems aren’t using special sources for any of this info, just read the histories yourselves in a little more depth than a 100 word tumblr post.

Western liberals for some reason cannot seem to accept that brown men are just as shitty without colonialism

Im super sorry but surgery and hormones don’t change your biological sex, it only alters the appearance of our secondary sex characteristics and it requires extensive surgical and hormonal replacement procedures for semi natural looking effects and are NOT proof that biological sex is a mere social construct that fluctuates easily and does not matter in our sexual orientations/relationships and it certainly does not mean sexism and women’s oppresion is “because of the hatred of the feminine”

Biological sex is a reality you can’t change, attraction is sex based, no one is attracted to the concepts of “femininity and masculinity” a thats the most sexist concept I’ve ever heard and I cannot believe its coming out of the “liberal” “progressive"and “feminists”

This brings up a good point: the fact that you HAVE to undergo extensive surgery to change the appearance of secondary sex characteristics to appear “passing” is very proof that bio sex is not a social construct. If it was a social construct, there would be no need to physical change. You could just adjust your attitude.

  • Biology means crap in terms of genetics. Fungi have 43 different types of genders. Plus, the slightest hormonal and/ ir chemical alteration could change the genetic code of the fetus. Just admit it, you dont like trans people and are nitpicking through whatever helps you without being truly informed. The caucasity you have

Honey…humans aren’t fungi, or clownfish or whatever animal that fits your delusion, we are a sexually dimorphic species, no one is nitpicking, biological sex isn’t a social construct

You didnt comment on the slightest changes. You are nitpicking. You want to know more facts since we are part of an aanimal kingdom? You know there are animals whose females become males because they have to change gender. There are animals who assimilate to the others gender to mate. And back to the humans. The slightest change in the process can cause different patterns in the dna code. Dont you honey me. You havent earned it yet.

Alright I’ll play. Firstly, you’re thinking of gene expression not changes in DNA. While it has been shown that differences in womb environment can change the gene expression of a fetus, the DNA code cannot change. There are a few things that can, namely radiation and oxidizers, but those won’t change your sex, you’ll just get cancer. CRISPR is rather experimental and would be unethical at best. Secondly, while you are correct that there are species on this planet who can go through natural sex changes, like clownfish, humans are not one of then. We are sexually dimorphic, there are only two different sexes. There are only two sex cells that we produce, eggs and sperm. Females are belonging to the sex that produces ova or eggs. Males belong to the sex that produces sperm. While any given individual may be infertile, that does not mean they are part of some mystical third sex, since they do not produce a third sex cell.

While you are correct that fungi have more than two sexes, their life cycle is so beautifully complex and ultimately irrelevant, as fungi are a completely different kingdom from humans that how they reproduce is just, not, relevant.

Sincerely, a biologist.

@elfrescomax Fungi have many different sexes because they have many different gametes. Humans have exactly two: ova and sperm. That’s it. We have two sexes. That’s all. Some animals with two sexes can change sex. That is, they change which gametes they produce. Humans can’t do that. Humans have never been able to do that. Women are women, men are men. Nothing socially constructed about it.

Humans are bipedal mammals, the latest in the evolutionary chain. You’ll notice that the further we go back in the history of life and view species less evolved than us, creatures’ sexes are determined by factors other than chromosomes such as temperature like Komodo dragons (a reptile, a more recent branch of the evolutionary chain), change sexes depending on reproductive need (clownfish, further back than reptiles), or do not have sex at all such as microorganisms that predated what we know as ocean life. Humans and other primates are the least likely of any species to ever be able to change sexes or have a third sex. We are too far down the evolutionary road as placental mammals to turn back and reinvent the wheel of reproduction.

Unpopular opinion: I don’t like people who are like “oh I love trans people!!! They’re beautiful and if anyone uses the wrong pronouns I👏🏼WILL👏🏼FUCK👏🏼THEM👏🏼UP👏🏼😤😤😤”

And then when a trans person says “hey, I really like you and wanna date you if you’d like. You should know I’m trans tho”

And then they’re like “uhmmm???? 🙄🙄I’m sorry but you’re not my type 🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️ I am not gay/straight.”

No one is required to date someone to prove their tolerance towards them.

You realize saying that will get you called a terf right?

People already say this to me. You should know I don’t care. lol

When you raid your daughters bedroom in the house owned by your ex wife to find some cute panties.

[submitted by granola]

troons standing like a child who needs to pee in order to trap their dicks between their legs is honestly one of the most clockable stances lmfao what woman would ever

you angered him

Why does he look like a thousand year old fetus?

He never developed his frontal lobe

One reblog=one prayer

Can we make that a reaction picture??

Are we not going to talk about what a heinous violation of his daughter it is to “raid” her bedroom and steal and wear he underwear? That is gross and hella abusive.

i genuinely don’t know if he did that. i assumed we were just taking the piss outta him

That’s definitely a teenager’s bedroom. Look at the bed, paint choice, decor, etc. An adult male pedophilic autogynephile wouldn’t decorate like that – they’d go more infantile and pink.

P.S. Sorry to my followers for making you see Gollum in Wal-Mart panties.

shit. you bring up good points. @larpsandtherealgirl is this legit?

I’m pretty sure those are letters on the wall like when kids rooms have their names written on them?

I don’t doubt a troon would decorate their room like this, however @canola-juice​ submitted this and reverse image searching it only shows this post so uh whomst’s room is this granola?

@sammyrey42 who’s room is that?

Well I asked him and this was his response. So…

This is legitimately creepy

I thought testosterone levels decreased with age. Plus this creature is so frail and skinny, how could it still be so violent? It looks like it’s on the verge of death, where does it get the energy?

Of course he’s got a sub kink and likes female dregradation lmao

And of course he owns one of those socks. Lmao why are they all stereotypes?????

How to delete someone elses post… 

“make me feel dirty” fam you’re already there

His name is Steven Douglas Trobridge also known as Samantha Trobridge/Samantha Spriggs/Sammy T. He is 46 and his address is 1440 W 27th St in Indianapolis IN 46208-5226. He works as a Care Coordinator at Managed Care Entity/ Managed Health Services – Centene coperation. He also has a wordpress account ( stevieteeblahg.wordpress.com )
where he writes “short stories” aka his fantasies about kidnapping and brutally murdering the women in his life. It’s disturbing to say the least. Its all very trashy slasher horror involving gore. His twitter under the same user name as his tumblr is full of him posing naked with sex toys on his DAUGHTERS BED.

I did some research and that actually is the bedroom of his daughter/stepdaughter whose name is Izzy and im assuming hes wearing her underwear. izzys moms fb is https://www.facebook.com/natalie.spriggstrobridge in case anyone wants to let her know what this pedo is doing to her daughter. Also someone should contact his employer. Let’s send his nudes to his coworkers and boss too lmao

His fb: https://m.facebook.com/trobridge his blog archive: http://archive.is/uUv8g

bonus: of COURSE hes a natural ginger and used to look like this lmfao

@canola-juice @metroidgf @pronounrespecter @radgoblin @femalebrain @angrylesbiana @gendertrenders @pro-uterus-agenda  boost please

Please share this, guys. Our observations and instincts were 100% correct. I hope Izzy gets far, far away from this sick fuck.

@trans-abuse-receipts @transrapeculturemisogynyreceipts

I think someone is a little upset 😂👌

S U F F E R , B I N C H

UPDATE

when being a creepy fuck around your daughter is a-ok but pointing out that it’s wrong is terf violence 👌

“TERF terrorism” lmfao he doesn’t even get what terrorism is but ALREADY thinks he’s a victim of it

Lmao why are they like this oml

I know this is really old because I saw it before I ever had a Tumblr, but does anyone know if the mother and daughter got away and are safe now?

“Non-men”.

I’ve got to point out that it was not very long ago that we were fighting for these types of institutions to even have women’s bathrooms in the first place–when universities were only grudgingly beginning to accept female students and women were not considered to belong in the public sphere.

The sparse decades between that period and today are the blink of an eye in the history of humanity. We could easily find ourselves right back in that society.

It really is a massive step backwards thinly disguised as progress. 

Notice how the men’s restroom is never touched by this crap. It’s only women who are expected to sacrifice their privacy. 

People need to start switching the “all-gender” signs to cover the men’s room. You know how quickly men would freak out? That’s exactly why these institutions never do it, never convert every restroom into an “all gender” room, because it would piss off men, and that actually matters to them.

This gender trend does nothing  for equality, it just feeds off of and exacerbates the same old sexism.

If men weren’t a systematic threat to everyone why couldn’t they just make their bathroom into the “gender neutral” one?? Why do only males get to keep their personhood and be respected as people? Why are women always forced to accomodate male feelings?

The universities that are doing this need to be making new facilities for these gender neutral bathrooms. Make them accessible for disabled people, too. Make them an all around good. Those who want gender neutral bathrooms are getting what they desire, women who do not want to share a bathroom with males are getting what they desire, and disabled people are given more facilities that are accessible to them. It’s a win-win-win. They have the money for it. The reason they’re not doing it is because they don’t really give a shit to do the right thing or to “waste” money when they could just slap on a new sign over the women’s bathroom and not give a fuck about the resulting sexual assaults and inserted spycams that follow. Twenty bucks says a school will shell out to have urinals installed in a women’s restroom before making disability-accessible gender neutral restrooms.
