Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tim Moore (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Intersex page[edit]

Hi there, thanks for your edits to the intersex page. It is stronger and more complete as a result of recent changes. It is my view that the intersections between intersex and LGBT might merit their own article at some point. So much of the intersex page already acts as a way of signposting readers to more detail.

Title IX[edit]

Hello -sche! I'm thinking of starting a new article on gender identity under Title IX in the educational context, what with this month's headline-grabbing pronouncement from the DOJ/DOE, and today's multi-state lawsuit in response. Perhaps you'd like to give it some attention as I work on it -- I'm in love with your editing skills, and you seem to be quite interested in the subject matter. For now it is here: User:Y/Gender identity under Title IX. Cheers! -- Y not? 22:00, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Update - Now in mainspace: Gender identity under Title IX. -- Y not? 21:49, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Intersex[edit]

Please stop your edits on the intersex page. They have been reverted before by me or by User:WhatamIdoing. Trankuility (talk) 22:33, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

...without addressing the issue I raised. -sche (talk) 22:37, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
How about this as a compromise? -sche (talk) 22:41, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Your comments on same-sex attraction seem predicated on intersex people homogeneously understanding intersex bodies as being a third sex, while your comments on transgender as a form of intersex rely on non WP:MEDRS theories and fringe theories. This is not based on any understanding or reading of the rest of the article, and so shows a non WP:NPOV. The reasoning that intersex people cannot be same sex attracted and that transgender people are intersex has the effect of ruling out other categories such as trans woman, trans man, as well as issues with the separation of sexual orientation and gender identity as concepts. It is not necessary to include every inconsistent or poorly considered fringe theory. It is my hope that folks at WikiProject Medicine will turn their attention to the pages on causes of transsexuality that have some similar content. Trankuility (talk) 23:43, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
I think it's important to not over-emphasize the edge cases in this article. According to the majority of mainstream sources, intersex and transsexuality are separate categories. It is true that an intersex person can have any sexual orientation and any gender identity. It's true that any person, of any sexual orientation or any gender identity, could be intersex (knowingly or not). However:
  • the typical transsexual person is not biologically intersex,
  • the typical intersex person does not identify as transsexual, and
  • transsexuality is not a type of intersex (because "brain function" or "internal psychology" isn't on the widely accepted list of what constitutes intersex).
I know that some trans people hope that they'll find some "scientific biological reason" for their gender identity, rather than feeling stigmatized as "crazy". (This hope is inevitable in cultures with as much biological reductionism as ours, and would probably be inevitable anyway just due to the differential in stigma.) However, at this point in time, given the current state of mainstream POVs, etc., I think it's important to avoid trying to squeeze in this idea that maybe transsexuality is mostly caused by biology, so maybe it's intersex, too. It's not helpful. Because intersex is defined as a certain short list of specific biological results, even incontrovertible proof that transsexuality was 100% biological wouldn't change this categorization. Up until the mainstream academic POV changes – and specifically until the mainstream academic POV of experts specializing in intersex conditions changes – to say that transsexuality is a kind of intersex, then we should continue to say that a person can be both trans and intersex, but they're completely separate considerations that don't coincide very often (mostly due to the rarity of both conditions).

Thanks, User:WhatamIdoing. I thought it might be helpful to share a link to our earlier discussion on your talk page (this). It might even be useful to transclude it onto the Talk:Intersex page, if you're agreeable? Trankuility (talk) 12:41, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
