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.
