I think you'll find his response below to be both interesting and illuminating.
Wm LCYour questions are good and important ones, Daniel, and unfortunately the Christian community at large tends to avoid questions like these.
They're the too often forgotten "I" at the end of LGBTQI, but according to the Intersex Society of North America, 1 in every 100 people is born with a body that doesn't fit what we typically think of as "male" or "female." Although some intersex people are identified at birth based on the appearance of their genitalia, others discover their status when puberty hits (or doesn't hit), and others still reach old age without ever learning about their condition. Woman A: Being intersex means being born with some characteristics that don't neatly fit into the "normal" spectrum of human sexual development (were there such a thing).
spoke with three intersex people about sex, puberty, relationships, and what it's like to grow up with a body that doesn't fit the medical norm. Myself, I look completely female, but happen to have XY chromosomes.
Thank you, Daniel Yours is an intriguing question, Daniel, about which I unfortunately know nothing.
So I've asked one of our Reasonable Faith volunteers who has done some thinking in this area to address your question.
Please try to clear these issues up with sound doctrine.
Since I don't produce natural estrogen, I take daily hormones to maintain healthy bones, sexual health, and emotional health.Let me preface my comments by saying that I'm not an expert in this matter; nonetheless, I'll do my best to think clearly about the issues.I'll take your questions one at a time (I've re-worded some). Craig, My question concerns those in the intersexed community.I myself am not this way, but I have read about those born with both male and female reproductive organs.No wonder so many people think they were born gay, lesbian, or transgendered!They can’t remember all the way back to birth when the messages they received about who they were, had yet to be delivered.To get to the point, what is the moral thing to do for a hermaphrodite? If they decide to engage in a relationship, how will they determine which sex to date? I am well aware of what the bible has to say about engaging in homosexual activity, but would it be considered moral for someone who has both reproductive organs to choose which gender to date?Does a hermaphrodite know their true sexual identity? I hope you can provide a Christian perspective on this matter because this question has troubled me for quite some time.The first is usually an emotional problem, not really a sexual one.The “transgendered” label reflects a sexual identity confusion and not a true condition. and it was very good.” In addition, 1 Corinthians says that “God is not a God of confusion but of peace,” so deliberately creating someone with self-contradiction appears to go against the very nature of God.
