Conservatives to My Community: F*** U!

Filed under: Inter/Trans-Sexed — Morwen Madrigal @ 1:27 pm

Okay… I don’t write about this kind of stuff here: I have a massive info site and many E-lists where I can pontificate about Inter & Trans- sexed people. (Been public for over five years and been doing the research since ’74.)

But… I am freakin’ pissed off right now. Vermont’s Gov. just vetoed protections for my community. (So did Hawaii’s Gov.)

I can’t help that I was born with all of the girl parts and the boy parts. That’s freakin’ biology. I just am, but to discriminate against my kind? Screw off!

We are engineers, investment brokers, veterans… we produce and protect. (You have no idea how many of us are Trans-sexed in the military.) We are everywhere and you don’t know it.

Can you understand what it feels like being unwanted? Being a part of Society, contributing, and then forgotten?

I didn’t ask for this. Neither did my brothers and sisters: we just are.

Please understand the variences of Bio-Chem. Understand that anomalies exist. Please don’t shut us out.

I will explain anything for those that are curious about this subject. I stand in the front line. I have nothing to hide. I AM, and nothing else matters.

This was nevr my intention. I’m an ‘out’ intersexed person, but I don’t proseltize… now I must.



  1. Since when were you born with BOTH boy parts AND girl parts thereby making you ‘intersexed”? Morwen you can’t have it both ways! You cannot be both “intersexed” and “transsexual”. You were born genetically male (albeit I won’t debate what emotional gender you felt). You made a conscious choice to change your physical gender to reflect what you felt inside. That is called “transsexual”,
    not “intersexed”. You may want to do some more research on just exactly what “intersexed” is before you start lumping folks who have a medical condition together with those who make conscious choices to alter their birth genders. Feel free to visit to learn more.

  2. For three decades I thought I was Trans… after the Deluge my aunt told me the truth: I’m a failed twin mosaic.

    I come at the IS and TS situation from a different angle. I know what the ISNA states, and you know what? I don’t really agree with all of it. I know my reality.

    Since I have spent many years in the Trans community, I tend to defer to them. They helped me to grow and accept myself. No IS person ever helped me.

    In my life I have tried to be a person who is inclusive, not exclusive. Trans and IS folks have similar needs and genesis. I try to fill that gap. ISNA tries to exclude. That’s not my way.

    And as far as being born male…. You should see the scars from what the doctors did to me. Talk to my aunts and cousins… I was their little girl. (Still am)

    This wasn’t a choice, it was reality. HRT has helped greatly, and I love my life now. I’m at peace. I’m whole.

    In the future, if you want to come at me, please do so with a name… no hiding. I stand forth every moment of the day as myself. I don’t hide. I am proud of myself and my life. I believe in living one’s truth, and expressing the same. (And taking the heat from the bigots.)

    So I’ve said my piece… Namaste!
