north america: THE SEX BINARY IS A LIE inferior-mirage: antifakiddie: queerlection: [Image description - Image of the intersex pride flag with the text: THE SEX BINARY IS A LIE. End description.] If you disagree with this, you’re denying that intersex people exist/have a right to exist, just sayin. I disagree with this because my intersex disorder (Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) is not a different sex. My diagnosis is specific to the presentation and symptoms expressed in a female body. Many intersex diagnoses - including Klinefelter’s, Turner’s, and hypospadias - continue to resemble our birth sex without confusion. If you disagree with this, you’re denying how variations on human sexual dimorphism cause significant problems to our health and fertility. Disorders of sex development reveal variation, not deliberate and distinct categories. If you read the archives of intersex advocacy organizations like OII or ISNA, we strongly reject being othered as fake males and females. Your ableist approach to erasing our chromosomal and phenotypic abnormalities to mark us separate but equal is not shared by the intersex community, medical professionals, or intersex activists.  Dr. Leonard Sax wrote, “This type of extreme social constructionism is confusing and is not helpful to clinicians, to their patients, or to their patients’ families. Diluting the term intersex to include “any deviation from the Platonic ideal of sexual dimorphism” (Blackless et al., 2000, p. 152), deprives the term of any clinically useful meaning. The available data support the conclusion that human sexuality is a dichotomy, not a continuum. More than 99.98% of humans are either male or female. If the term intersex is to retain any clinical meaning, the use of this term should be restricted to those conditions in which chromosomal sex is inconsistent with phenotypic sex, or in which the phenotype is not classifiable as either male or female. The birth of an intersex child, far from being ‘a fairly common phenomenon,’ is actually a rare event, occurring in fewer than 2 out of every 10,000 births.” The Intersex Society of North America rejected raising intersex babies as a third sex with this statement: “Sorry, gender warriors… We believe there are two problems with trying to raise kids in a ‘third gender.’ First, how would we decide who would count in the ‘third gender’? How would we decide where to cut off the category of male and begin the category of intersex, or, on the other side of the spectrum, where to cut off the category of intersex to begin the category of female? Second, and much more importantly, we are trying to make the world a safe place for intersexed kids, and we don’t think labeling them with a gender category that in essence doesn’t exist would help them.” Your flag is a lie. “Having two arms is a lie and if you disagree with this you’re saying that people with birth defects that give them additional limbs don’t have a right to exist!” What the fuck kind of logic is that? Intersex is by definition a defect that exists outside of the norm. Gender may be more up for debate but sex is definitely a binary.

north america: My wife and I will NEVER purchase another NIKE product again. 'Gold Star Dad Garland Mason' Nike has endorsed Colin Kaepernick's disrespect of the American flag.. Nike now features him in a “Just Do It” campaign, along with a quote that reads: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Nike's vice president of brand for North America 'Gino Fisanotti' added... "We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward." As parents of a fallen soldier 'Mr Fisanotti' I can assure you , our son, and many others like him, also sacrificed everything... our son sacrificed his yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows for the flag that Kaepernick chooses to disrespect. Our son sacrificed his life so that others may know freedom. Unlike Colin Kaepernick, our son was not being paid millions of dollars a year when he made his sacrifice for our great nation. Sixteen days before being killed in action, our son was asked by another paratrooper how he felt about being in Iraq, he replied... "This is a time in our life that we're making history, this is our moment. We all chose to come into the military, knowing that we could be sent over here, but we chose to do it anyway... because we choose to believe the patch (the American flag) we wear on our right shoulder stands for something that's greater than who we are, or where we come from... we're the fabric that holds the flag together." -CPL Chris Mason 12 Nov 2006-
