Word of the Gay: "Ovotestis"

An "ovotestis" is a gonad with both testicular and ovarian aspects. This is one of the several possible intersex variances that can occur within the sex spectrum.

Hey Shauna,

thanks for stopping by as always, I didn't know that this was your particular intersex. There like 22 or 23 different variants for is people right? It is such a huge field, I hope to learn more as I write this blog.

Oh god no Intersex is not a single condition. As many as 40 different medical conditions are included under the "intersex" umbrella. The only consistent similarity among this broad set of conditions is the way in which they are considered "abnormal" by society. I will give you 2 educational sites which should help educate ok?
