Where it was a bit of a tiebreaker, I honestly dont know.

Do you think people who were born intersexed are being deceiptful if they don't tell a potential future partner?

These days as adults people in our society regularly choose to identify with another sex and some go as far as having the ops to do it.

An intersex child who grows up at odds with his physical sex would be able to fit in with society within the range of accepted adult norms and go through ops etc if they so wished and live a normal life.

If someone told you before you were going to meet them for a date that they were born intersexed - would it put you off dating them?

Do you think people who were born intersexed are being deceiptful if they don't tell a potential future partner? I didnt watch the programme, but it sounds interesting.

I only phrase it that way as I don't know if there's been surgical intervention. We're no longer in contact but gender did not play a role in our loss of communication.

If you had a child that was born with two sets of genetalia, what decisions do you think you would make - for example, choose their sex for them and have doctors operate, or leave them to choose when they are older?Its difficult to say how I'd feel if a potential partner told me that, I certainly wouldnt need to be told before we'd met and found out if we'd much in common, much of an attraction and I wouldnt feel they'd been deceiptful if they waited to tell me, as long as they let me know before any kind of sexual interaction. If you go by genetics then you are either female or male.I did know someone who was intersexed , i always knew her as female as she was my sisters friend and never thought of her any different than female . From what i understand of genetics any featus with other combinations of genes is unlikely to survive pregnancy anyway.Did anyone watch the programme on TV last week about babies born intersexed (Hermaphrodites) ... If you had a child that was born with two sets of genetalia, what decisions do you think you would make - for example, choose their sex for them and have doctors operate, or leave them to choose when they are older?How do you think you would you feel if someone you were seeing told you they were born intersexed?)So someone intersexed could have external vagina & penis - but no womb perhaps ... again, I'm not sure - but I think once a sex has been decided on, the person would have to have hormone injections, testosterone if female genetalia removed for example. Ok, I have known someone who was indeed born intersexed.
