Callahan À 2 Read & download Free read Between XX and XY Intersexuality and the Myth of Two Sexes Of sex development What makes someone a boy or a girl Is it external genitalia chromosomes DNA environment or some combination of these factors Not even doctors or scientists are entirely clear What is clear is that sex is not an either or proposition not girlboy XXXY switching between two poles like an on off switch on a radio Rather sex is like the bass and treble knobs on that radio  Between XX and XY provides a fas. a very informative and enlightening book with some issues i was greatly looking forward to reading it and while i definitely don t regret it per se i will say that i am disappointed it s definitely a good run down of intersex issues in general buteven though the author interviews discusses multiple transgender individuals the way he talks about them is far less than ideal when referring to events in a person s life prior to that person s social transition he uses the name and pronouns that the person used at the time rather than the name and pronouns they now prefer for example stuff like this dave was born a boy but realized he was a girl and then she was named mary sure some trans people are fine with referring to themselves this way or being referred to by others this way but many of us increasingly many especially today s youngest generations of trans people prefer REUIRE that you refer to us with our CURRENT name and pronouns regardless of what period of our lives you re discussing as a cis person hopefully one who wishes to be an ally to the transgender community much like he s an ally to the intersex community his job is to learn how to respectfully refer to trans peoplehe makes a point of saying multiple times throughout the book that the sex someone is assigned at birth may not speak the full story of what their sex actually is and someone s apparent sex isn t always indicative of the gender identity they ll grow into when they re older this is very true and i m glad he says this so much however confusingly at many points he also uses the words sex and gender interchangeably when in reality they re not synonyms at alland my final issue with the book is perhaps the most baffling one throughout the entirety of the book he uses a certain thirteen letter word beginning with H derived from the name of an androgynous greek god among much of the intersex community this word is considered outdated and rude at best or a slur at worst i was very surprised at his repeated use of the word and disappointed bewildered at the fact that it wasnt until than halfway through the book that he discussed the negative connotations of the word in uestion i can t uite remember but i believe it was given less than one page of discussion he mentioned how the language that we use to talk about certain things can affect how we think and feel about those things and as a result we should reconsider our use of such a stigmatizing word and the real kicker he still continues to use the same word throughout the rest of the book Shadows in the Starlight makes someone a boy or a girl Is it external genitalia
