Happy Inters*x Awareness Day!
S*x is one way that society has chosen as a marker for both de jure and de facto segregation of people into "easily identifiable" categories, creating a binary that correlates with its construction of cisgender. However, s*x is not as black and white as male and female, just as gender is not simply man and woman. For those who fall somewhere in the middle, the term Inters*x can be applied. It is NEVER ok to call some one a hermaphrodite--the term is outdated and its connotations are offensive.

Really insightful article regarding breast cancer awareness and screening in people who undergo top surgery.

Not to mention, "No Bra Day" leaves men (who can also develop breasst cancer) out of the conversation.
