We need to respect people for who they are."An estimated one in 2,000 babies is born with an intersex (or "unisex", as XXXora prefers) condition or a controversially named "disorder of sex development" (DSD).This can include atypical genitalia, chromosomes or internal sex organs.
But she always knew she did not fit into society's rigid male or female categories and refused major surgery to mould her body into either. "I don't want to morph into a blue or pink box; I want to stay in my silver box."These words stuck with me, especially because things were not always so simple.
XXXora was 25 when she decided she could no longer assimilate into society.
The last time I met her, she summed up her story perfectly.
Born with ambiguous sexual organs, she was raised a boy.
Xxxora has previously given her support to a campaign led by a group of intersex women.
