INTERsex? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
Don't be heteronormative !
Evil conservatives! Attacking families!! Who could oppose equal treatment? Such a noble cause! Oh, the humanity!
I'm not sure if I can help it...
I believe "intersex" is an individual who is only halfway to being "transgendered".
See post 7.
Actually, I believe "intersex" is the new politically correct term for hermaphroditic.
Of course...don't know why that didn't spring to mind right away. Sheesh.
I don't know how I happen to know it. Must be my liberal arts college education.
This is great. Kids can't spell, read, write or do math, but at least they'll know about the "gay lifestyle".
That'll do it, I imagine. :^)

Clears up acne, too!
Queer questioning??? What happened to bi-curious? Just when I thought I had it all figured out!!!!
I'm not inter the kinky stuff...
Please try to understand that these groups do not want understanding. They are proselytizing their lifestyle. Many young people already think that bisexuality is the norm, the standard. At present, they have won the hearts and minds of many or most of our youth. While we make glib comments about what's going on, they're stealing our children.
