If you go by genitalia then the answers are not obvious!!you could make a choice say if one set of genitalia were incomplete to operate and change sex to the "complete" genitalia sex.At the time,he said he had no intention of having any surgical procedures,and had intended on continuing to live his life as a heterosexual male. We did spend a few weeks together on holiday and had a great time. K., I guess he drastically changed his mind on how he wanted to live as I understand through mutual friends that he is now living his life full time as a woman.
From what i understand of genetics any featus with other combinations of genes is unlikely to survive pregnancy anyway.
Obviously genetics giving you the sex of a person merely means that "intersex" people are just deformed rather than a specific sex.
On balance of probabilities Id choose to have my intersex child put into one distinct sex as in likely terms less psychological harm will happen.
An intersex child growing up as the wrong sex will come to no more harm than a normally sexed child who grows up to become TV and has the ops etc.
Im fairly open minded about children but that may change as i get older and if having my own child with my partner was reallly important to me then having a relationship with an intersex partner who could not do that would be a lot harder.
I dont think it would end such a relationship if you loved them but like many challenges in life it could be hard to deal with.
I could imagine in some relationships an inability to bear children may be a deal breaker too.
I know you can adopt/surragecy/fostering these days but not everyone feels able to do that.
I only phrase it that way as I don't know if there's been surgical intervention. We're no longer in contact but gender did not play a role in our loss of communication.
I did know someone who was intersexed , i always knew her as female as she was my sisters friend and never thought of her any different than female .
you would then carry the risk that the child grows up and identifys themself with the opposite sex to what was forced on them by surgery.
