What is your opinion on intersex aka hermaphrodites? Do they fascinate you or perhaps scare you?

It is just a state of being and occurs throughout nature, so intersex people, who is not the same thing as trans, deserve to be accepted like anyone else.

Mostly you can't tell who they are, but history has not been kind to them

What a perfect answer for DLers who want to virtue signal while still showing how they actually feel, despite the incongruity.

They had a hard time in the past (usually murdered at birth) and not a great one today. They are men and women with physical disabilities, but get dragged into and exploited by all sorts of special interest groups.

Strangingly? OP, edit baby, edit.

OP is either mentally-challenged or is not an English speaker and translated his post via Google from whatever language he speaks.

Either way, it reflects a trend on Datalounge of people posting without understanding even the basics of English grammar.

If people are naturally born like that: compassion and I wouldnt even rule them out romantically.

The Ancient Greeks venerated intersex people, thought they were divinely sent. Hermaphroditus was the beautiful, androgynous lovechild of Hermes and Aphrodite. An interesting parallel is found in depth psychology, especially Jungian psychology, where the hermaphrodite is used as a symbol of uniting opposites within oneself, the ultimate mission of our lives on earth.

The ancient Greeks absolutely did not venerate intersex people. Hermaphroditus was an incredibly minor mythic being, subject to no cult. Generally they killed hermaphrodites as babies by exposing them, as they did most infants with obvious deformities. Where do people get this romanticised nonsense from?

[quote]killed ...them, as they did most infants with obvious deformities.

Is that wrong?

I had a German Shepherd Dog who was intersexed.

He went in for his neuter surgery. He has one testicle (cryptorchidism), the vet thought the other testicle was undescended (and still inside the body cavity). When looking for the other testicle, the vet discovered a uterus and two underdeveloped fallopian tubes.

He was a great dog, and a very special one. It was the vet's first surgical experience with an intersexed dog (thought to be about 1:3000).

And this was a good doc. I have no opinion, if they're assholes, I'd probably avoid, but they aren't a monolith. The one guy in this is pretty hot.

I grew up with a male calico cat - I had no idea he was intersex!

R24 I grudgingly agree with O. That was an excellent novel.

A great movie that explores this subject is "XXY", an Argentine film.

I could go either way.

Does your Mommy know you use words like “hermaphrodite?”

by Anonymousreply 29September 21, 2023 1:28 PM

What the fuck. Seeing these recent posts with a "serious question" posed, then some vague eugenics/social ranking/exclusion language. Here's what you sound like, OP:

The second we start ranking and excluding people, it's over. They did this to gay people for decades. OP, you sound like some earnest mom on an 80s talk show: "I am sympathetic towards people with AIDS and I do not judge them. I'm just not comfortable with them teaching my children, serving me food, handling my money, living next door, breathing...."

When I was a teen, I'd sit in the living room and listen to my mother and grandmother working in the kitchen . I got the greatest gossip and assorted scurrilous stores that way. I also discovered that I had an intersex cousin. In my grandmother's words, "When it was born, they couldn't tell if it was a boy or a girl."

Shortly after the birth, the family moved out of town. Understandable, since every living being in the community would obsess on the story for the next ten years.
