00:00 Introduction
10:47 Question of the Week
Question: "I was talking with Amana Hotpoint the other night and I mentioned how I thought that being androgyne (as I am) might well be the psychological counterpart to intersex. After all, many intersexed folks refer to themselves as being inter-gendered. Also, after talking with Amana, it occurred to me that intersexed folks are the opposite of transsexuals insofar as (many of them had "corrective" surgery when young and) they are mad that someone got rid of a body part of theirs, while transsexuals look forward to getting rid of a body part of theirs. Food for thought? "
