This is a website I’ve set up to highlight the link between exposure before birth to medical treatment with synthetic hormones, and intersex conditions, gender dysphoria and various other problems later in life. I set it up quite early in my journey of self-discovery, and didn’t realise at the time that “hermaphrodite” is a bit of a dirty word among intersex and transgender people (due to the medical co-opting of the term, and its subsequent association with Victorian freak shows and botched genital surgeries). The hermaphrodite of mythology was a being made up of a male spirit and a female spirit sharing a body with the genitals of a man but the arms, legs and breasts of a woman. Apart from my breasts being a bit small this is a fairly accurate summation of who I am, so the term seemed appropriate!
