Poem by Gina Wilson
Spokesperson for Intersex Rights in Australia
I will draw a wavy line on this board
it seems to want it.
then I'll draw some lines beneath,
seems they won’t be silent.
Intersex is not about gender
though some Intersex have genders
of all sorts.
Intersex is not about sexual preference
though some Intersex prefer this
Intersex is about sex.
The sex you preform on me
The sex you expect me to preform
rare as ambergris
Intersex is the sex that I am.
Look beneath the blanket tops
Look beneath the waves
If you love me Intersex
is just another word
