A lot of people don't really know much about the gender term intersexed because it's not common, but if you say the word "hermanphrodite" they are a bit more familiar with it. Hermanphrodite is the slang term for intersexed which is the medical term and it pretty much means that you are born with both parts. 1 out of 2000 people are intersexed which is the same amount of red heads in the world which is not that much. This gender conflict deals with anatomy alone and not necessarily sexuality. There are babies born with full-blown female parts and a few male parts as well as full-blown male parts and a few female parts because of added hormones that developed as a fetus. It is often confused with attraction and confusion with identity because the child often times get altered at birth because of what the doctors want them to be gender wise since there is so many gender biases. What matters is what the child identifies themself pyschologically of what gender they are as well as who they are attracted to.
