Let me just start off by saying I don’t necessarily agree with transgender sex changes.
But what I’m talking about here, is something different. I’m not taking about a person who calls themselves transgender. I am talking about a legitimate, true hermaphrodite.
A hermaphrodite is a person who was born with both sets of sex organs, and whose sex chromosomes do not distinctly identify them as either male or female.
Let’s say this particular hermaphrodite has the sex chromosome XXY.
XX = female
XY = male
XXY = ???
So it seems like in an instance such as this, where both the body and the DNA composition points to neither female or male, it would be up to the person’s own mind to determine which sex they feel they are.
Would it be moral in this case then, for a true hermaphrodite with both sets of sex organs and with XXY chromosomes to remove the male sex organs if they identified themselves as female in their minds? Would it be just as morally neutral as removing extra limbs a person might be born with?
Please vote on the poll, and explain your rationale.
