Gender Justice Nevada Brings Awareness to Intersexuality

 

Intersexuality is a term that is not widely understood, and its meaning is gradually appearing from the dark. A person who is born intersex can have one of many different variations of male and female genitals.

These babies have surgeries performed on them where a doctor and/or the parents decide the sex of the child. From emerging stories, we are learning that this has caused chaos in the lives of these Intersexual beings.

Gender Justice Nevada has been formed to implement and push for new laws in Nevada that stop the doctors from choosing for the children. By doing this, the child can grow and decide for themselves if they wish for surgery and what sex they are more comfortable with.

Blood tests of DNA can show what chromosomes are present in a person. If you are interested in learning more, please visit Intersex Society of North America.

If children have the right to choose their career path, then they shall also be granted the right to choose their gender.

I Can’t Leave Vegas

Because of all of you who think about me on a daily basis. You pull me here; hundreds of magnets. When I try to leave, I end up right back.

One night, I climbed to the top of a mountain. I feel on my knees and cried. I asked, “what is keeping me here? Why can I not leave Las Vegas?”

I walked down the mountain, back to my apartment room where I checked my phone to see a few missed calls from my youngest sister. She was hurting and lost. She asked to come over and talk.

I received the message. I am here for her. I am here for all of my sisters. I am here for all of my family that came to Vegas and never made it out. I am here for the coming generations. I am here because of the friends I have made. I am here because of the lives I have touched. I am here.

I was at First Friday talking to a talented woman who has her doubts about who I am. I feel a profound connection to her. My heart throbs when she judges my actions without asking my intentions and she knows that. She is reminded every time she gets the chance to talk to me in person. She said, “I was happy to hear you came back. We are growing and this is a good place for you to be.”

I am here because of her and many others who did not like the ideal of me living in another city.

(Now I know I can’t tell y’all my travel plans… ahahahaha)
