This is an umbrella term for a variety of conditions that a person can be born with, involving a sexual or reproductive anatomy that society has trouble labeling as either definitively male or definitively female. A person labeled with an intersex condition has a combination of sex characteristics (for example external genitalia, internal reproductive organs, and/or chromosomes), some of which are typically labelled as female, some of which are typically labelled as male, and/or some of which appear to be somewhere in between. This was previously known as “hermaphrodite;” however, the term “hermaphrodite” is considered offensive and should not be applied to humans.
