No, intersex is different than hermaphrodite. Intersex means the sex of the individual is ambiguous, not clear which sex they are. They may have elements of both sexes, or appear to be neither. Hermaphrodite means having all organs of both sexes and all organs of both sexes being functional. Hermaphroditism occurs rarely, if ever, in humans. Intersex is a fairly common abnormality. However despite being fairly common, like cleft palate, or cleft lip, it is not well known, and not commonly discussed, by the public. It has tended, in recent history, to be "hidden." This is made easier by the fact that genitals, even normal ones, tend to be "privatized," as well.
Many intersex people do not have pain or functional problems with urination and are able to have orgasms, yet in recent history, surgeons and psycholotists, to the dismay of some intersex people who have been affected, have tended to assign one sex or the other -- having intersex phobia -- and surgically altered infants and children to resemble one or the other, unnecessarily, in the opinion of many intersex people.
If there is no problem urinating you can leave it alone. Or wait until the person is an adult to do surgery. Yet unfounded fear of allowing people with ambiguous gender to remain ambiguous, has caused surgeons to rush into surgery, and psycholotists to rush into rapid "assignment" of gender. The result is, for example, children with female-looking genitals who, when they grow up, feel like they are really male, and that the wrong assignment has been made. Or who believe assignment was not really necessary and done more for the purpose of ease the fear of ambiguity, of others, rather than to help the people who are intersexed.http://www.isna.org/drupal/index.php
