This is an Intersex Body

This is an Intersex Body

"This is my body. To be more specific, this is my intersex body.

As an intersex person, my body has carried me through so much trauma and pain. My body has never fit into a box, but those around me have tried their hardest to put it into one through forced medical interventions, coercion, and shame.

Despite their efforts, I love my intersex body.

I love that it allows me to exist between the lines.

I love that it shows me that the world isn't as binary as I previously thought.

I love that it can be my home."

ESPAÑOL:

"Este es mi cuerpo. Para ser más específico, este es mi cuerpo intersexual.

Como una persona intersexual, mi cuerpo ha tolerado mucho dolor y ha pasado por traumas. Mi cuerpo nunca encajó en la caja de lo normal, pero aquellos a mi alrededor intentaron lo que más pudieron por ponerme dentro de ella usando medicamentos, coerción y vergüenza.

A pesar de sus esfuerzos, amo tener un cuerpo intersexual.

Amo que me permite existir entre fronteras.

Amo que me muestra que el mundo no es binario como solía pensar.

Amo que puede ser mi casa."
