Not Quite Another One...

Girl is born looking like a Boy. She tries to be a Boy. Fails, but can fake it well. She has to to try to have some kind of normal life. Later, she finds out her body isn't as male as everyone (including her) thought. She's in-between, so can live as the woman she always was, without feeling like some kind of sex pervert. Her partner takes in her stride the fact that she married another girl, the person matters, not the physical shape, and they all live happily ever after, giving thanks that due to an unusual biological situation, two gals could have children together. Rare, but it happens.

From the Denver Post:
Five years ago, when Steve and Debbie Crecelius awaited results of his kidney stone ultrasound, they weren't expecting earth-shattering news. But what the technician told them rocked their world. "She said, 'You're female,' " said Steve, a prominent local photographer who has worked with clients ranging from Harrison Ford to the city of Glendale. The medical discovery that he is intersex — born with a mix of anatomical sex traits, so biological gender cannot be classified as either male or female — led to a flood of revelations that would refine and redefine their 25-year marriage. When they got home, Debbie forced a conversation that Steve feared would cost him his wife and family. "There's something I've always wanted to talk to you about," she said, explaining that she'd always known that he had female traits.....
No change of external appearance, just the revelation that her body wasn't completely male. That was enough. We need to educate people, especially Trans people, to realise that Trans people aren't "sex perverts" as is the popular belief. That whether someone is classically Intersex, with a mixed reproductive anatomy, or classically Transsexual, with a mixed neurological anatomy, or even if they just have a cross-sexed gender identity due to other causes - not that any have been identified - they're who they feel they are. They don't have to pretend.

Nope. Blended Family.

But hey, what do facts matter?

Facts? A lifelong crossdresser with a wife and kids comes up with a bullshit story about how he is supposedly a woman. Well guess what - the kidneys aren't even close to where a uterus would be, and only a nurse who got her degree from a box of Cracker Jacks would tell a man that he is "a woman", even if she did find evidence of a uterus.

That's right up there with weirdos who have SRS and then later claim that they turned into a laydee all on their own or because of a bee sting.

What's worse is the fools who actually believe such bullshit.

Hello, just wanted to say I found your blog through your totally amazing comments on the Jeffreys' piece in the Guardian. Thank you so much for being so kickass.

This is an offtopic post, but I just wanted to thank you for your learned and insightful contributions to the couple of trans threads on The Guardian's "Comment is Free".

It was very refreshing to read posts by someone who actually knew what they were talking about, supported by actual, proper references, as opposed to the opaque, tortured and generally unreadable speculation being produced by people who *should* know better: Tenured professor, to name but one!

Thanks once more,

Please don't let the anonymous naysayers stop you from declaring the wonderful diversity of our multigendered world.

Got one (or two) spam comments in this thread you might want to get rid of.

YOU DON'T FEMINIZE AFTER MASCULINIZING.

No intersex condition I am aware of does this. They were either feminized before the fact or they're telling bullshit stories to laypeople who know no better about the biological realities.

It doesn't work that way, never has worked that way, never will work that way, and people who claim it works that way are full of nonsense.

I repeat. You are not a man who 'miraculously' feminizes. That's *impossible*. Quit claiming it, and quit supporting people who do.
