I can’t really blame my mother for allowing the medical profession to use me as a guinea pig. I strongly believe that my mother, a poor, black, single parent raising eight kids, did the best she could. I believe that she fell for the lies that the doctors told her, that they could “fix” me and make me “normal.” Whatever normal is.

But if I had one wish, this is what I would wish for:

I wish my mother had asked more questions, and done some research on her own. I wish she hadn’t taken the doctors for their word, and I wish she had listened to me when I told her what my desires were. I wish she was told that her child being intersex does not reflect on her as parent. That sometimes children are born different than how we have our hearts set.

Unfortunately, she put all of her trust in the doctors at the University, and prayed they could make her “son” into a male.

Maybe with more knowledge, patience, and understanding, my mother would have had the tools needed to be a great parent.

Story Continues...


  1. Beyonce had a boyfriend name Lynell...did this person take the blue pill to become a boy? Do he have ovaries? Maybe he was with beyonce when she showed up at the stripper club in New York...LOL!

  2. "Lynnell was one of those kids. She was born in Chicago on June 11, 1963 with ambiguous genitalia. After being surgically altered by doctors she was raised male most of her life. She went through major drama in her life until she saw ISNA's Cheryl Chase on TV in 1997 and discovered she was intersex. She eventually met Cheryl Chase at a 1999 GenderPac Lobby Day (how did I miss meeting both of them?) and began working with the organization by telling her story about growing up Black and intersex."

  3. This person gave a interview and this is what the person had to say about the word, "hermaphrodite":

    Is a person who is intersex a hermaphrodite?

    "No. The mythological term “hermaphrodite” implies that a person is both fully male and fully female. This is a physiologic impossibility.

    The words “hermaphrodite” and “pseudo-hermaphrodite” are stigmatizing and misleading words.

    Lynell is not as educated as she or her appears to be!


    I don't understand why this person called the term, "hermaphrodite" mythological!

    AND this person WAS born with two gene tails!
