where did you find out about urogenital sinus abnormality being intersex?

FFC answered: 

I first found out here

Then I did some independent research that suggested it was probably true, and then a friend and I did some more digging and we found this

Although the second link doesn’t mention it, female hypospadias is also a thing, said to be a “extremely rare” but I’ve also found people fairly suggesting it’s probably more common than believed but it’s severely under-diagnosed bc docs don’t know how to spot it (to be fair, it is a little hard to see).

That said, this is lucky for us afabs with hypospadias bc apparently they wanna “fix” us ALL if they can ever find us:

All the variants of female hypospadia must be surgically corrected as transposition of the external opening of the urethra from the vagina on the perineum under the clitoris in chronic urethritis, cystitis and vulvovaginitis or as urethroplasty in enuresis. Hypospadia, urogenital sinus and hermaphroditism–three anomalies of human urogenital system–combine rather frequently.

Personally, despite some of the very real problems in life that I face because of this condition or whatever (e.g., difficulty voiding my bladder - which is a real challenge at times, especially with alcohol/stress) I would much rather take my chances with the body I was born with than risk doctors tinkering with my tinkler and other nether-parts. NO THANKS!!! 

I know there’s more I wanna add to this but right now I’m very very foggy and on high nerve alert, for reasons I do not quite get since it’s gorgeous out. So I hope this all makes sense and I would sincerely love it if anyone would add to this/send corrections/more literature/etc if they feel they can/want to. Cheers!!! <3

The babies are looooooving the summer weather and are being super well behaved. In their twilight years I feel compelled to help them get the very most out of their sweet, smol lives 💜💚💙❤️💗

LMAOO these lovelies have been marked as “sensitive content” and they’re literally just cats enjoying a gorgeous summer day. YET, it’s now under review and this highly unnecessary NSFW warning will hopefully be lifted soon, but can I just point out that these are my tags (plus the date):

So uhhh…. can we all agree that this is specifically an example of institutionalized aphobia?

@staff why is this still flagged as sensitive

@staff, once you fix this, i sincerely hope you also provide us with an explanation for how this happened and how you’ll avoid it happening again in future. this is NOT the first time it’s happened to pics of my cats that I’ve posted within the ace/aro/aspec discourses.

It is NEVER ok to post someone’s nudes online w/out consent, no matter what they have done to hurt your feelings.

Don’t think yall asses are slick. It’s not okay to ogle and share revenge porn, once it’s been released either.

For fucking real, TY!!! 

And don’t let me hear anyone talking about this shit using words like “leaked” (remember #TheFappening a couple years ago???), as if it’s ever a fucking accident bc we know for damn sure it’s intentional. @vivaladivatracy‘s got it right using the more accurate word “released” instead, and I hope for a cultural shift to this type of language.

Language like “leaked” reinforces the rape culture that makes shit like this possible. The targets end up being held responsible/blamed for their own victimization rather than the offenders themselves. 

IOW, it helps sexual offenders (usually men) “get off” and further victimizes their targets (usually women). This also means we are creating a culture that rewards & excuses sexual offenders while further victimizing and controlling their targets. 

This is NOT something we want to participate in, amirite? 

So let’s watch our language bc it absolutely matters!

if you can’t keep posi///tivity out of the discourse tag, dont expect people to respect yall enough to keep discourse out of the p//ositivity tag. its that simple

exclusionists are fucking WILD - imagine thinking that these two things are exactly the same hahaha holy shit… 

i’m pretty sure our positivity doesn’t cause anyone any harm (in fact it’s literally a harm reduction tactic), whilst i cannot even tell you the # of people that have personally told me they’ve been severely harmed by discourse being shoe-horned into positivity tags (bc I assume this isn’t limited to the “””””ace discourse”””””), which isn’t surprising since harming aspecs and other marginalized people is the actual goal. 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
