Born as a True Hermaphrodite: Lynn Edward Harris...

Lynn Edward Harris, born Lynn Elizabeth Harris, 09/13/50 at 6:12 p.m. P.D.T. in the city of Orange, California, USA, south of the Los Angeles County line.

On November 8th, 1973 at age 23 Harris was clinically diagnosed by a team of specialists as possessing a rare, complex, congenital condition known as "True Hermaphroditism" [Intersex] with undescended, sub-sized ovotestes i.e. "gonadal mosaicism" found in approximately 1-in-25,000 births. [Statistic source: New England Journal of Medicine, 01/14/98.]

Due to ambiguously-formed genitalia at birth [stunted penis; divided scrotum; and vagina], Harris, (mal)assigned "female" by both parents and pediatrician, was raised as such and continued living in said social gender role until age 29 (1979) --- six years after the disclosure of this fixed, irreversible, yet-evolving biological state.

After puberty, minor neurological problems eventually abated. Sexual development remained at a pubertal level while naturally-occurring virilization of secondary characteristics compounded. As Harris' anatomy had developed clearly along non-female lines i.e. no breasts, no milk glands, no child-bearing hips, no menses, sterility; early beard growth, male vocal chords, male skeletal structure, male musculature, male libido, male genetic patterning, he felt justified to elect to live full-time in the male social gender role beginning February, 1979.

For the following four years (1979 to 1983) he lived in a sexual legal limbo, still carrying the original-and-only, valid female I.D. which now appeared both obsolete and fraudulent. On numerous occasions when asked for proof of identification, he was accused of strangely utilizing a 'counterfeit' or 'stolen' I.D. card belonging to some woman.

Desire for a permanent legal remedy to rectify all I.D., thus making it consistent with his outward persona, had become crucial. The subject approached the Superior Court, County of Los Angeles, wrote his own petition and pled his own case for 1) a change of middle name from "Elizabeth" to "Edward"; and 2) a re-issued birth certificate changing the sex designation from "female" to "male".....



  1. i never knew there was such an illness

  2. she must be so upset anyways i wish yuou all the best in life.

  3. Hermaphroditism is not a 'curse', nor is it the result of incestuous relations.

  4. Having sex with your family members are an act of evilness. You two knew that it's wrong but yet you continue to hook-up with each other. You went far enough to have a child together. Your child's genes are destroyed and they are born with a slew of birth defects. if they decided to have children, their children will be born with another set of defects. Hermaphrodites are the result of incest.

    This person's parents NEVER told them the truth. This is so sad. They had to discover the truth on their own.

    1. It doesn’t say anything in the article that this person was born out of incest you dumb fuck!!

  5. fuck you and your ignorant, insolent, unintelligent remarks. You are nothing but an asinine being who should review their facts.

  6. The truth hurts. Don't get upset at me, divert your anger at your parents for going against the doctors orders.

  7. Dude there isn't. Extenze has lawsuits up against it for not doing what smiling fred says it does. dude your man tool size is all from your gene pool you can permanantly change your tool size as easy as you can change your eye color not possable. . . curtdude
