Re: Parents want to stop transgender teen having hormone treatment:


quote:

Home spun made up words as "Intersex" are just that as GENDER equates to bodily components."



Intersex (or indeterminate sex) are not home spun nor made up terms.

quote:

XX male syndrome is a rare congenital condition




yes rare but add to that
XXY (and XXXXY)
Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
Testosterone Biosynthetic Defects
Androgen insensitivity syndrome
Gonadal Dysgenesis
5-Alpha Reductase Deficiency
Micropenis
Klinefelter syndrome
Turner syndrome
Timing Defect

all of which are rare but in sum amount to a considerable number of births - some where between 1 in 1500 and 1 in 2000 births

that is up to 1 in every 2000 births where the sex (not gender) can not be ascertained visually.

If some one has a body which is at least as female as it is male in appearance shouldnt it be down the the individual what sex (not gender) they want to be?

Re: Parents want to stop transgender teen having hormone treatment:


There are XX males and XY females - fact is, a disproportionate percentage of female models are actually XY.

And an XY female can mature normally, experience menses, become pregnant and give birth to healthy children.

And it gets better - there's actually a condition that causes ]girls to become boys at puberty.

Re: Parents want to stop transgender teen having hormone treatment:


So a miniscule portion of births WORLDWIDE come up with a physical deformity where the SEX cannot be readily ID'd. The XX male and XY females are how many known in the ENTIRE population? Minimal numbers and you come up with a genetic mutation NOT a natural NORMAL condition.

Intersex for MULTIPLE conditions sounds like a made up word to compensate for what they cannot figure out.

Re: Parents want to stop transgender teen having hormone treatment:


cooter, learn something about the subject before you embarrass yourself anymore than you already have.

"Intersex" is the correct medical term - it's not a made up word and the fact that you haven't heard it before only means that you haven't heard it before.

But the BOY in the article linked in the OP is transgender - that's completely different than someone being intersex. What the term transgender means is that he was assigned female at birth because of his external genitalia but his gender is male.

BTW - gender isn't binary (i.e., male/female). It's perhaps most simply described as a continuum.

1 in 2000 is not a 'miniscule number' in the US never mind the world.

there are about 4 million children born in the US every year - that is about 2000 intersex/indeterminate sex children every year.

Ever heard of Cystic Fibrosis? well intersex/indeterminate sex is more common than CF

and once again - even though you are obviously not listening, 'sex' does not equal 'gender' and 'transgender' is the same as 'intersex'

Re: Parents want to stop transgender teen having hormone treatment:


The point wasn't the biology is it should a 17 y.o. be able to do it and that can only be answered by the 17 y.o. and the medical professionals that will run him through a battery of tests and interview him for several times over a period of time. It takes years to get to surgery and most don't do it for their own reasons or can't afford it. However I did read some insurances are covering the surgery.
