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.
Wm LCYour questions are good and important ones, Daniel, and unfortunately the Christian community at large tends to avoid questions like these.I started with an XY chromosome set, but because those gonads didn't develop and produced no hormones, my body kept the Y chromosome but just didn't develop male parts.So my body stuck along the default path of looking fully female on the outside, but having no functional female reproductive parts on the inside.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.Paternus now displays how Laurence's condition repulses him and expresses his regret that Laurence will never father a male heir.
He offers Laurence his inheritance in a premature bulk sum, if he will agree to allow Paternus to disown him.
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.
In biology, a hermaphrodite can be defined as any animal or plant that has both the male and female reproductive organs.
Many plants and animals, particularly invertebrates, possess hermaphroditic characteristics and they have the ability to act as a male or a female.
Woman B: I have a congenital Disorder/Difference of Sex Development (DSD) called pure gonadal dysgenesi, or Swyer Syndrome.
