The Oracular Vulva
Cast of Characters:
Dr Paul McHugh as Dr. Budekind,
Dr Julianne Imperato-McGinley as Dr Fabienne Pappas-Kikuchi
John Money as Peter Luce
Theodore Albert Klebs as himself
and the Sambia tribe as the Dawats
...and far, far, far too many girls with 5ARD as Felicity Kennington.
Because when I say that 5ARD causes an apparent natural "sex change" in some ways... it's not completely true. The gender identity doesn't change. The one in three (we think) who are bigendered take on a new role. The one in three (we think) who are male cease being (effectively) trans men. And the one in three women whose bodies masculinise ... it's best not to dwell on lest our hearts break.
Budekind's full of it, by the way. I know two women who are only still here because the pistol misfired. And rather more who know the taste of gun oil.
So's Luce and Pappas-Kikuchi. Luce because he thinks its upbringing - it's not, it's neurological. And Pappas-Kikuchi because she thinks it's malleable, instead of a consequence of some people being bigendered (or rather, ambiguously sexed) neurologically. They both ignore the inconvenient exceptions.
More on that, and my evolving thinking on the subject, in my next post. Which involves a legal world first in the state of New South Wales, one that takes us one step closer to legality matching reality.
