Note: The original definition said "male-to-intersex" and "female-to-intersex" instead of "mixed genital set" because it seemed like kind of iffy terminology to use to describe this.
Color meanings: The root word comes from Salmacis, a nymph who plays a role in the myth of Hermaphroditus (who in turn is the source for the word herm***ite). In the myth, the two were joined together in one body and lived in a fountain/spring from then on. The design is meant as an abstract picture of the spring. Top half is light blue for the sky, bottom half is greenish brown for the ground, and then a thick blueish-purple bar in the middle for the spring
also idk why but I can only type in italics, ok
edit: I meant "biologically determined" by chosen, sorry. Like it's a group you can't be in unless you were born into it
' is more of an identity that can't be chosen' <- particularly this bit.
Obviously no, being intersex is not something that can be chosen, but...the way you've worded this seems to imply that there are other identities that can be chosen? are you saying being trans is a choice...?
Sorry again, i'm just confused here.
two people run this account but only one of them was involved in writing this. call me Dog.
I think I meant biologically determined?
I don't have sources for that, but I do recall finding it somewhere a while back. I can try and find it again, if you're interested.
And yeah, that sounds better, I fixed it, thanks!
