What surprises life will spring upon you? ABC News reports:

A Colorado man who was admitted to the hospital for a kidney stone received surprising news when the nurse came back with test results revealing he was actually a woman. Denver photographer Steve Crecelius said he’s felt a little different all his life.

He was intersex, meaning he had both male genitalia and internal female sex organs. “The nurse is reading the ultrasound and says, ‘Huh, this says you’re a female,’ Crecelius said. “It was very liberating.” Steve, who now goes by “Stevie,” said his wife and their children accepted his new identity right away.

      For some reason this story reminds me of the “rugby player” who had a stroke, “turned gay” as a result, got a job as a hairdresser and is happier than ever.

         “The Pink Hand” is at work.. (Micheal Savage, crazed radio blabber Grade A A-Hole of the nutter right homophobic term. Savage has issues. Probably a little gay himself.) Not that it isn’t bullshit. The media is certainly pro homosexual and now transgender is “the new gay”. Years of Queer Theory in universities..

         No kidding. I’d be a little freaked. Since you Are a Freak of nature. But it is Ok. We all want to feel special!

       what else do you do?  Go crazy? 

      As much as I tried the former, I still went the latter when I developed Tourette’s.  IT was maddening loosing control of my body, but it was so ridiculous I couldn’t help but laugh.  In some cultures I’d have been burned, others, made a shaman.  I guess I do a little of both these days.  But back on point, when something starts altering your body/life/mind, you don’t really get many choices. 

      He is still the kid’s dad, his wife’s husband, they still love him, and he has ovaries.  Big fucking deal?!  What else DO you do? 

      They are are just some lumps of tissue.  Hardly the be all and end all of existence.

      I miss the trans-humanist scene around here, those folks didn’t give a fuck what it took to get to the future.

    Intersex people are usually sterile. It’s more interesting how the heck he has kids in the first place. Are they even really his?

    • Zenc

      Yeah, I was sorta wondering that too.

  • samthor

    It does happen that people are born Intersexed or as Hermaphrodites. *
    It’s a shame we get so hung up on our gender binary system, when there is obviously more to life than this or that. *
