Either a doctor or a nurse spoke to him over the phone and he remembers them saying that there must be something wrong with the results because they revealed that I was chromosomally male.I went to a second appointment with an endocrinologist where I was told the truth about my body -- I learned that I have Swyer Syndrome. But then I started using more vague language like, 'Have you ever heard of things like 'Have you ever heard of sex that isn't strictly considered "male" or "female? They just used that language in order to fit me into an imagined sex binary, thinking that it would be better for me.And it’s not like they do an x-ray or MRI on a child that’s just born to see if they have a uterus.
On November 13, in a long, rambling Facebook post, Taylor Lianne Chandler addressed why she was “freaked out” that her alleged romantic relationship with Michael Phelps, the 18-time Olympic gold medalist, had been exposed in the tabloids. And then I was left to deal with this all by myself. It got to the point where the media just wouldn’t stop digging. Then the next day on my private Facebook, I told family and friends. My exes were more concerned with my well-being because of everything I was going through. The everyday stress, wondering if the other shoe was going to drop and I was going to be outed, is what led to me outing myself. If he hadn’t gotten the DUI, no one would have known who I was.
She claimed that “if him and I were photographed or seen together the media people would want to know who I am,” and that she’s been “living with secrets my whole life.” Then, Chandler, 41, came out as intersex, claiming she was born David Roy Fitch, but as long as she could remember, she identified as a woman. My ex-husband flew home from Afghanistan, we told our daughter, his daughter, but who to me is like my daughter. No one would have cared seeing me come out of his house like I’d come out of his house before.
I also identify as trans, so I was having blood work done in order to start hormone therapy.
One of the findings was that my hormone levels weren’t in the typical “female” range.
There was never anything about me or my body that he had an adverse reaction to. It has nothing to do with me and I did nothing wrong.
There is not one part of my body that he does not know. Now that the public is aware of your intersex status, do you fear that will change your relationship with him? Being intersex really shouldn’t change anyone’s thoughts on anything. So you’re saying there is something else going on the media is unaware of? So it sounds like you’ve been misunderstood in the media.
I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but in the media’s defense I don’t think they know.
In my opinion, if you’re going to report on something you should do the research and know what it means because almost every country has an intersex society or group. Intersex is an umbrella term that’s kind of replaced hermaphrodite, which is politically incorrect.
They kept doing more tests and it took about two years for them to figure out that I have Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH).
CAH affects the way the adrenal gland creates cortisol, which can be potentially life threatening for some variations of CAH if not monitored, and can affect the size and appearance of the genitals.
There were times when I was forced to be more androgynous than I care to be, but I stayed true to who I was and left home when I was fifteen. Since I’ve been thrown onto this platform, I actually need to learn more about it before I say the wrong thing because I’ve never lived in this world.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
