Mani Mitchell Intersex Interview

Definition of Intersex (according to Wikipedia):

Intersex, in humans and other animals, describes variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, or genitals “that do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies”.[1] Such variations may involve genital ambiguity, and combinations of chromosomal genotype and sexual phenotype other than XY-male and XX-female.[2][3] Intersex people were previously referred to as hermaphrodites, but the term has fallen out of favor as it is considered to be misleading and stigmatizing.
