Have you heard of the term intersex? Do you know what it means? Have you met an intersex person?
You may not know the answers to these questions. But time to learn.
Intersex doesn’t just refer to one specific trait, according to interACT: Advocates for Intersex Youth. It’s an umbrella term for variations in reproductive or sex anatomy, and could show up in someone’s chromosomes, genitals, testes or ovaries. People could discover they are intersex when they’re born but others could not know until puberty or beyond that.
