Actually, they're called Hemaphrodites. They could be called intersex however, I've never heard that term.

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.

Well, yeah. To echo what soilman said. The surgical procedures of gender reassignment performed on infants is brutal and of questionable effectiveness leading to a growing challenge about making these surgeries routine in cases where genetalia are "ambiguous."

The labelling and assignment of one sex or the other, to people whose sex is ambiguous, is yet another example of people feeling they have to label everything, and fear of leaving things unlabelled, and is another example diagnostic labelling doing more harm than good. Here the label-obsessed are even going so far as using surgery to "permanently embed" their label.

i read (in my genetics textbook, i believe) that most people that are considered "hermaphrodites" are genetic females with such extremely large clitorides (plural of clitoris) that they resemble penes.

" extremely large clitorides (plural of clitoris)"



Aha! I was wondering what the plural was!



Of course it is quite incorrect to consider a person who simply has a very large clitoris, to be a hermaphrodite.



By the way, most green plants are hermaphrodites: they have a complete set of male parts and a complete set of female parts. This doesn't necessarily mean they can "eff themselves" - tho sometimes they can. Most of the time, most don't.

How comnon is intersexed? I have never met any and yet I know a few transgendered. Maybe it's more socialably acceptable to talk about being transgendered?

It can be difficult, depending on the type of tortoise/turtle. My tortoise (the real Nkuvu, the one in the avatar) made sure that the world knew his gender, though. He exposed himself to me and the vet at the same time. This was earlier this year, and he's seven. Before that I wasn't sure at all.
