The Hermaphrodite: Ron B.


Many may know Ron B. from her appearances in Law & Order and Angels in America, or Broadway plays like She Got Away. Others may have seen her perform as Tina Turner at Oxygen in the Village or for children with HIV/AIDS in Staten Island. Many more may be familiar with Ron B.'s activism work. But who is, really, Ron B.?

The Ron B. people know today is really "a catalyst" of everything that defines her as an entertainer, actor, celebrity impersonator, activist for the rights of people who have been discriminated against, and trans-individual. The transition has started early on in Ron B.'s life and it's ongoing. “I think many transgender people feel that way very early in life,” Ron B. comments. “I think at the age of three I felt I was different. Didn’t understand it [at the time], but [it] always was different.” Ron B.'s "culture shock" happened when she was 12, when her mother found a diary in which Ron B. was writing about her crush on a boy sitting in the same class, as any girl would have a crush on a boy. "I was so shocked, I didn't know what to say," the entertainer recalls. Yet the weigh lifted off her shoulders when her mother, always "the driving force" in her life, accepted her child regardless of how Ron B. felt and encouraged the future entertainer to follow her dreams, to become all that she could become. Ron B.'s father was a different story.

Gender-wise really should be between the ears and not between the legs,” Ron B. comments. That is important because many transgender individuals tragically take their own lives because they’re not accepted within their family circles. Only recently people have started to come to terms with the trans-communty, though many still consider trans-individuals "freaks" or "street-walkers." And Ron B. is determined to prove these theories wrong and show the truth about the trans-individuals, that they are productive citizens of the community who ask to be respected.

Transgender individuals have to deal with the fact that they are trapped, uncomfortable with their own bodies. Many, like Ron B., try to deny this feeling yet, by denial doesn't make it go away, but rather turns it into a shadow, always following them. Denying one’s true identity can also lead to depression. It took Ron B. many years of therapy to get to accept the real person within. The entertainer suggests professional help to any young person who may think is transgender.

    These people refuse to admit that he or she was born as a hermaphrodite.

    This person was birthed through an incestuous relationship.

  5. I was talking to a friend of mind and I was telling her about all the celebrities that are suppose to be intersexed and she told me that she has a cousin that is a hermaphrodite. She said that her cousin was molested in her apartment building when she was younger and thats how everyone in the neighborhood found out about her condition. Her cousin is 32 yrs of age and she just got her penis removed three years ago. Now she has to take "those pills". She is married however on the verge of getting a divorce.

    I asked her was her cousin's mother and father related and she said no, that the father was from Pannama. So I'm assuming that it is the mother that my friend is related to. I don't know, maybe it was in one of their Genes.

    The cousin was never admit that incest took place within their family.

    However, it's possible that the mother or father carried the "genetic trait".

  7. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or

  8. While using it should be kept in your head that your particular vaporizer consists of a limited period of life and it
    is uphill to use it following that time period.

    The digital variety is obviously the most efficient of all the
    other types, and its temperature accuracy is excellent. Many individuals
    often call vaporizer as smoke sticks.

    Many CNA's wind up going a bit further within their career by becoming either an LVN,
    RN, or one of those unfortunate other career options.
    Colleges nationwide are selling degrees in nonprofit management.

  11. ' This sounds unreasonable, since neither the baby nor labor may be put on a schedule.
    I was on all fours as my better half pressed Kidney 1, thankfully because he managed to catch our
    babe. Watching a female and her partner become empowered to trust
    in their, for being informed of their options, to obtain their birth,
    and witness them becoming parents along with a new family.

  12. Only the very best vaporizer can produce quality vapor that's free from toxic
    impurities and smoke. The AA batteries are small ,
    can also fit easily inside backpack. The Vicks Cool Mist
    humidifier is great for babies, adult and youngsters who suffer from allergies as well
    as find it hard to breath because of dry air.

  13. This insures that you are not burning it, however really vaporizing the
    substance. Oils Diffuser, and Aromatherapy Device, all
    of this for under $300. Silver Surfer Vaporizer was the initial vaporizer that offers a fully glass
    ceramic heater where the air typically is available in contact from the glass and ceramic.
