The Hermaphrodite: Josie or Joseph Romero


..For seven years, Joseph was raised as a boy. As soon as he turned eight, his parents switched his name to "Josie" and dressed him in female clothing.

Josie parents went on record to state that their child knew at age "four" that "he" was born in the wrong body and that he wanted to become a girl.

Despite Josie's outward appearance, he still has a male anatomy and one day he will request to undergo a sex change operation.

When Joseph or Josie turn 12, he will began the estrogen treatments, which will push his male body into a more feminine appearance.

According to Joseph's mother:

"When she was a toddler, she was always trying to turn her boy toys into girl toys. She used to take her army figures, wrap them up and rock them like a baby. As she grew older and started to talk, she always said: "I'm a girl. We used to correct her and say: "No you're a boy". But by the time she was four, she was insisting: "No I really am a girl". We started to realise she wasn't just playing. She would always correct anyone who called her a boy. She'd wrap one of my scarves around her waist to make a skirt. It was her favourite...."

  1. This child was born transgendered.

    Hermaphrodites - Have the option to trans-ition for gender to gender as their gender wasn't defined at birth.

    This parents knew when she changed her child's diaper that it had ambiguous genitals (both).

    I am going to follow this story because i am
    sure that this child will have to undergo the gender reassignment process (sex change).

    The mother look like she was born that way.

    Then they had the nerve to adopt a ladyboy from Japan so that their son can't relate or rather MATE with?

    SICK!

  3. Josie was diagnosed as hermaphrodite / transgender (can transition from gender to gender) at the age of six.

    Her sex has been legally changed and she will undergo surgery and drug treatment to help her grow up as a woman.

    (SHE WILL HAVE SURGERY TO CORRECT HER AMBIGUOUS GENITALS)

    Her mother Venessia, 42, said: "As a toddler she wrapped up her army figures and rocked them like a baby.

    "As she started to talk, she'd say, 'I'm a girl'. We used to correct her and say, 'No you're a boy'.

    "By the time she was four she was insisting, 'No, I really am a girl'."

    Her father Joseph, an engineer in the United States Air Force, said: "I had mourned the loss of my son. When I came to terms with it, I knew I had gained a daughter."

    The girl has been educated at home in Arizona after the family suffered taunts outside the military base school overseas.

    Josie will be given drugs to prevent male adolescence and, at 12, get female hormones.

    Her case echoes that of a boy of nine who returned to school as a girl.

    A HERMAPHRODITE WORKING AS A HOOKER WAS MURDERED:

    Agony of sex-change prostitute's middle-class family after she is found murdered in her flat By Beth Hale
    Last updated at 11:27 AM on 19th October 2009
    Add to My Stories Posing happily next to her brother Nick, it is hard to believe that Andrea Waddell was born a man.
    But her warm smile concealed a troubled life - dogged by health and gender problems - which ended with her brutal murder.
    The 29-year-old student's body was found in a burnt-out flat in Brighton. Tests showed she had been strangled.

    Family ties: Andrea Waddell with her brother Nick in 2006
    Police informed her parents, Sonia and Robin, of her death and also of the fact that Miss Waddell had been working as a prostitute.
    Her mother said: 'Andrea was a wonderful daughter and we are amazingly proud of her in spite of her having a life which we didn't know about.

    'We had no idea she was working as a prostitute and we were shocked to find out.
    'But she has never hurt anybody and has never done anything to upset anyone. She was there for everybody, a generous and caring person. She had been through so much.'
    Andrea Waddell, 29, who died in a blaze at a flat in Brighton
    Nick, 33, described the loss of his sister as the 'most desperately heartbreaking thing in the whole world', adding: 'We just want everyone to know how much we loved her and will miss her.'
    The family will travel from their home in Reading to Brighton today to help police try to establish exactly what happened to Miss Waddell.
    Born Alexander John Waddell, she flourished at sport and in academic studies, gaining 11 GCSEs at A grade and four A-levels.
    But she suffered from scoliosis, a severe curvature of the spine, and fibromyalgia, a debilitating syndrome which can cause muscle pain, sleeplessness and depression.
    It was while studying philosophy at Durham University that Miss Waddell began hormone treatment in preparation for a sex change.

    By the time she graduated, Alex had been transformed into Andrea.
    Five years ago she moved to Brighton to do a masters degree in social and political studies.

    But she was beset by further health problems which made it impossible for her to work.
    To cope with her persistent muscular pain, Miss Waddell travelled to Thailand to study massage techniques and aromatherapy.
    Somehow she entered the world of prostitution and, according to Sussex Police, would sometimes take clients back to her one-bedroom flat
    Enlarge Police outside the building in Brighton where Andrea Waddell's body was discovered in her burned out flat
    They said she was sociable and well known in Brighton with no record of drink or drugs abuse.
    Her body was found on Thursday after a neighbour alerted emergency services to a fire.
    Detective Chief Inspector Adam Hibbert, who is leading the murder inquiry, had appealed for members of Brighton's sex industry to help.
    A 42-year- old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

  6. There are too many hermaphrodites living in the UK.

    It's like incest is heavily encouraged. These people are eager to share their story in a local paper. Awful!

  7. Bonnita Spikes and her daughter, Michelle - (Family photo)

    Early on, l knew my son Michael was different. While my three other sons begged me to buy them G.I. Joe figurines and were obsessed with football, Michael preferred playing with My Little Pony and taking tap dance lessons.

    In Prince Georges County, Maryland where we live, we have a diverse group of friends so the idea of having a gay son didn't scare or shock us. Sure, we feared he had a hard road ahead of him - being bullied at school, getting fired from his job for being gay and facing the possibility that he may never be able to be legally married - but with our love, we knew he was going to be okay.

    When Michael turned 16, he told us that he wasn't a gay man. Instead, he was a transgender woman named Michelle who had been dressing as a woman when he left the house. At that point, my husband and I both realized that this was a big deal. My son was now my daughter.

    Even though I am an activist and somewhat liberal, I didn't know what being transgender meant. After doing some serious soul searching, my husband and I concluded that our child needed us. Unlike too many of her friends whose parents had kicked them out for being gay or transgender, we were going to open our minds even further than what we thought was possible. It was difficult. But we started going to family therapy and things were slowly getting better.

    But everything changed in December 1999, the day my daughter Michelle became the target of a hate crime.

    While standing in line with her friends at a club in Atlanta, Michelle was struck in the head with a metal pipe by a stranger who did not like the fact that she was a transgender woman. She fell to the ground and her skull split open.

    The doctors weren't very hopeful - they didn't think she was going to make it. As she lay there unconscious, she was unrecognizable. Her head was shaved, there was a V-shaped scar down the side of her face, and she was bruised and swollen.

    For weeks, my family, my friends and my minister prayed by her bedside, not confident that we would ever hear her voice again. When she finally woke up, we were ecstatic. But we were realistic that a full recovery was miles away. Michelle had temporary amnesia and didn't even remember me. One day, I asked her if she knew who I was and she said, "No, but you seem like a really nice lady."

    Those moments made my heart break, but my daughter was alive and that's all that mattered.

    After her attack and full recovery, I reached out to the Gay, Transgender, Lesbian and Bisexual National Hotline for support and was referred to the Sexual Minority Youth Alliance League. They offered me educational workshops about the transgender community and they introduced me to other women like Michelle. Most important, they encouraged me to bond with Michelle on a mother-daughter level. So we started shopping for clothes and makeup together, getting our nails done and hanging out at home more. Now, Michelle feels more comfortable with me and vice versa -she even puts pressure on me to dress more fashionable when going out.

    I look at her and I see someone amazing - someone fabulous.

    I was fully aware of the homophobia that haunts our community. However, it was not until my child was beaten and left for dead did I ever truly believe that having the courage to be true to oneself could result in being killed. Yet, Michelle's story is not rare. Unfortunately, for many trans women living in the U.S., violence and death are a way of life, especially those who are African American. According to the Human Rights Campaign, 1 in 12 transgender Americans faces the chance of being murdered; while the average person has about a one in 18,000 chance.

    From one parent to another, more work needs to be done to protect our children regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity. We are all products of God and deserve to live, be loved and have peace of mind.

  8. "Even though I am an activist and somewhat liberal, I didn't know what being transgender meant."

    You knew when you changed your son's diaper that her wasn't right down there - but - still you hid your little family secret until your son was hospitalized.

  9. At birth, the doctors told you that your son was different. The lady ain't telling the truth.

  11. Not all gay or transgendered individuals have ambiguous genitalia. Are some of these cases caused by incestuous relations? Sure. All? Of course not. Open up your minds, people. Some people are actually just BORN THIS WAY...not the result of some crazy incestuous relationship.

    YOU MUST BE A BITTER ASS INTERSEXUAL!

    THESE PEOPLE WERE "BORN THAT WAY".

    A DOCTOR WILL PERFORM A SEX CHANGE ON A PERSON IF AND ONLY IF THEIR GENDER WASN'T DEFINED AT BIRTH, WHICH MEANS THAT THEY WERE BORN WITH DEFORMED GENITALIAS!

    SOME HAVE BOTH
    SOME HAVE 1 and a half
    SOME ARE TOO LARGE
    SOME ARE TOO SMALL

    PEOPLE WHO WERE BORN THIS WAY HAVE THE OPTION TO TRANSFORMED INTO EITHER MALE OR FEMALE!

    IT STARTS WITH A CHILD BIRTHED THROUGH INCEST. THE CHILD GROWS UP AND THEY CARRY THE "GENE".

  16. @ 9:03 -
    Sorry to disappoint you. I am a full-fledged female. I have three children - nothing wrong with my girl-parts! I have read through the link you recommended. Nothing there says that ALL transgendered individuals are the result of inbreeding. And, by the way, doctors most certainly will perform sex change operations even on people whose sex was defined at birth. It is a long, rigorous process in which the individual must choose their gender, and take the hormones, and live as the desired gender for a period of one to two years before the doctor will do the sex reassignment surgery. After that time, and after much psychiatric counceling, the doctors determine the individual is committed to live as the opposite gender and the surgery is performed. Therefor, I highly doubt Chastity Bono was born with a penis. And to the person who said Cher was a man and changed into female to sing...how ignorant. She is a she, as she got pregnant and birthed a baby. What part of that confuses you???

  17. ^^^^They are NOT going to tell the truth about hermaphrodites---but this site will! Since ur soo gotdamn smart---where do chromosomal disorders come from?
    And bet you didn't know that Cher has not one but 2 TRANSGENDERED children one was ACTUALLY born male (not Chaz) weird for a gay icon isn't it? *sarcasm* You go ahead and continue to believe what 'THEY' want you to know---and we will stick to what WE KNOW!! God Bless!

  18. I am logical and i've read that all transgendered people were born that way.

    Hence - trans-gendered

    The option to transition from gender to gender because sex isn't defined at birth. This is also a genetic disorder and it stems from incest and the children carry the trait as it is hereditary.

    Cher married her cousin Sonny Bono. Chaz will marry his or her cousin.

    If you don't believe me, ask them to get a blood test. Their blood line is all fucked up because Cher decided to fuck her cousin.

  19. Oprah had the pregnant man on her show who was actually a pregnant hermaphrodite.

    A pregnant transgendered person. Hermaphrodites are known being called "transgendered or intersex". They don't like the term hermaphrodite because it relates directly with incest.

    A DOCTOR WILL NOT PERFORM A SEX CHANGE ON A PERSON UNLESS THE PERSON'S GENDER WASN'T DEFINED AT BIRTH. LOOK IT UP.

    READ THROUGH THE ACTUAL MEDICAL CASES. GO BUY A MEDICAL JOURNAL. I HAVE A COLLECTION!

  20. I am aware that Cher children were "born that way".

    She was "born that way" so it's only wise that her children carry the hereditary trait that she passed down to them.

    Do you know anything about incest?

    Do you realize the real reason why this subject is taboo?

    Did you read about Hollywood's interest in children born through incest?

    Did you read the book "middlesex" that was on Oprah's show?

    Did you read the book written by a hermaphrodite titled "the mightly hermaphrodite"?

    INCEST!

    CHER AND SONNY WERE RELATED. SHE WAS LABELED AS A GAY ICON FOR A REASON.

    JUST LIKE EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT LADY GAGA. "THE GAY" PEOPLE MADE LADY GAGA WHO SHE IS TODAY.

    THE GAY PEOPLE!

    Lady gaga is a hermaphrodite!

  22. Doctor's will perform a sex change on people born with a condition related to the intersex. Intersex people were once called hermaphrodites.

    Your parents lied to you. I am just being honest.

    The only terms that i saw were intersex and transgendered.

    How can a doctor reconstruct the private parts of a person who was born 100% male or 100% female? It will not happen.

    In order to recontruct that must be a mix up. Therefore, a doctor will not perform a sex change operation on a person that was born 100% female or 100% male.

  25. This child is a boy and looks like a boy and talks like a boy. Give him a mirror. Dresses and bows do not make him a girl. If he wants to wear dresses make sure he is put in a class of boys in a boys school. This little upstart just wants publicity and the mother is as stupid for dressing him like a girl.
