The Hermaphrodite: Michalina Manios



"I was born a hermaphrodite and when the doctors first saw me they assumed I was a boy as I had male genitalia. But I grew up feeling more feminine than male and so four years ago I had an operation to remove the male bits and changed my name..." - 22-year-old Michalina Manios revealed to the judges on Poland's Next Top Model that she was born as a hermaphrodite. The aspiring model's revelation has created quite a buzz on and off line. For more, google or search for the actual video on youtbue.

  1. I empathize with what Michalina must have gone through as she was growing up. It may have been a lot of mixed emotions.

    Stories like hers serve to inspire. I applaud her and the others that have achieved so much. Thank you for sharing this and the other posts.

  2. Wow, this blog is painfully dumb. First of all; hermaphrodites are not just born out of incest. Second of all there is a HUGE difference between a hermaphrodite who is born with ambiguous genitalia and a transsexual who is born with a completely developed set of male or female genitalia who psychologically feels as though they need to be reassigned. Chaz Bono, Lea T, etc are not hermaphrodites! They are transsexuals

  5. Everything at the top of the website is damn near wrong. Incest has absolutely no medical correlation with intersex individuals
