According to Medline Plus, Intersex is a group of conditions where there is a discrepancy between the external genitals and the internal genitals (the testes and ovaries).The older term for this condition is hermaphroditism. Although the older terms are still included in this article for reference, they have been replaced by most experts, patients and families. Increasingly, this group of conditions is being called disorders of sex development (DSDs).
Two intersexuals shared their experience and how they have suffered discrimination from people in Nigeria due to being Intersex. One of those interviewed was formerly called Iyabode Abade, a female Nigerian football star now James Johnson. He said he had to change to a man because he noticed he had more of male characteristics than woman.
Many persons have reacted to this touching story of these two.
