It has recently come to my attention that some readers consider this to be a very angry blog. I am sorry that it has been interpreted as such. It is true that I (and most intersexuals) are angry about our situation, and sometimes I use this blog to vent. The purpose of the blog is to raise awareness of issues and problems that many people don't even know exist, it is supposed to be a teaching tool, and if my readers don't see it as such, then I have failed in my objective. I am not an overly angry person, It is just frustration over my situation in general and a world that often doesn't "get it". This frustration is not focused at any particular people, no one is to blame. In fact everyone involved in the medical treatment of intersexuals has charitable intentions and feel that they are doing the best thing for the child. We are just victims of groupthink and social views of normalcy. I am sorry if my readers got the wrong idea about me, or intersexuals in general, and I will try to watch my tone more closely in the future.
