A student at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Awka has recorded herself in a video, stating that she was an intersex and encouraged others who had her condition to stop hiding too.
The lady who is referred to as Chisom explained that she got the courage to reveal her sex after a lady announced hers online.
Chisom stated that she observed that so many social media users had begun to debate about whether such sexes existed or not, hence she decided to record a video of herself.
She further revealed that there are many individuals living with the condition but cannot claim to be in the public, out of fear of stigmatization and rejection.
Chisom lamented, “Intersex are real. We’re real and we’re no more hiding.
“And anybody that is asking stupid questions; do they have dick, do they have this one? Then, I’ll just advise you, pray to God so God will give you a child that is an intersex. Maybe you will now see for yourself how intersex looks like.”
Wikipedia defines intersex as Individuals born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, sex hormones, or genitals that, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, “do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies.
