I get asked a lot what does intersex mean. Well, it can mean a lot of different things for people. “Intersex people are 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.”(Wikipedia) So people ask what does that mean for me? Well, I’m a girl with XXY chromosomes and ovaries and if my body was to be dug up in 300 years they would look at my bones to tell my sex and my bones would indicate that I was female. Another question I get asked is what parts do I have or if I have both. Well! That is not a respectful question to ask because it doesn’t matter what I got between my legs — it’s between me, my doctor and my partner at the time. No, you can’t tell if someone is intersex, and you shouldn’t treat them like a toy or anything other than a human being. At the end of the day be yourself, live your life, and love like crazy. ~ Gean
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumntree.” “Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.” “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” “I hope I can be the autumn leaf, who looked at the sky and lived.“
My name is Gean. I’m 21 and a small town girl. I love the outdoors and having the cozy sunshine on my face. I enjoy photography, reading, and going on adventures though life. I’m an old soul who has been around for awhile who has seen the most beautiful moments in life, and the saddest too. I go on. I climb the hardest mountains even when people say I don’t have any experience or I’m not gonna make it. I will always learn from my mistakes, get up, and try again because I know one day I will be at the top of that mountain. I’ll be looking over the world and seeing what a beautiful and wonderful view it is, and what a beautiful adventure it was to get there. So never give up on your dreams, be yourself, and live life with love, peace and happiness.
