You May No Longer Refer To Some People As Male or Female, This Is What You Will Call Them
The world is gradually taking a different shape and this new shape comes with changes of so many things, one of the changes that we must be prepared to fully welcome into our daily lives is that, we may begin to refer to some humans with terms other than male or female.
The term hermaphrodite was in use in the earliest to refer to people who are born with more than one sex organs, or simply the male and female sex organs, but with the advancement of the world, the word sounded more like stigmatizing and belittling of people born with such conditions.
The term is no longer in use for human, it is now used for animals and other thing, but not humans, humans with such conditions or traits are now referred to as simply ‘INTERSEX’, a word that perfectly describe their kind of existence.
Although, some persons are not born with these conditions, they simply go through operations to have it done, what we today call transgender, a condition of INTERSEX, but scientifically induced or done. The term INTERSEX has been adopted by Australia, after four years of struggling and court cases by group of people with the condition.
It has been accepted in Germany, were they use the later “X” to represent the INTERSEX individuals, while the “M and F” for male and female still stands for other humans.
It has been accepted in some states, which keeps growing in number in the United States of America, were they also use the later “X” to represent the INTERSEX individuals, while the “M and F” for male and female still stands for other humans.
It has also been accepted in Nepal, there also, they use the later “X” to represent the INTERSEX individuals, while the “M and F” for male and female still stands for other humans.
In Pakistan also, the term to call these special ones has been accepted, the Pakistanis use the later “T” to represent the INTERSEX individuals which also stands TRANSGENDER, while the “M and F” for male and female still stands for other humans.
The world and everything in it keep changing, I know this will get to Nigeria soon, and when it does, we should be ready to accept all the changes it will bring with it.
