Not all intersex people are sterile. In some cases one set works, the other doesn’t. However, there was at least two reported cases of both functional. They were not cross functional (self fertilization).
Most intersex people I know do not widely publish. Being a lab rat is not a very nice job.
Intersex has touched my family twice, although there isn’t supposed to be a heredity component to it, nor am I claiming one. In both cases, removal of one set of hormonal producing organs was necessary. In one case the person was within hours of death.
Transgender is an umbrella term from cross dressers, drag queens, gender queer (whatever that means), transvestites, etc etc etc. Most of those are mental issues that need to be addressed. This is primarily what the anything goes “lobby” supports, unfortunately.
The Vatican had for a long time a document on its site (in a quick scan I couldn’t find it, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there). 10 cent summary: don’t know what these people are (intersex), but they exist and are and have been from birth one sex or the other. Since we (Church) don’t know their sex, they are expected to be celibate. We do respect their prayerful discernment given a well formed conscience.
I would totally agree that most “professionals” in this area are indeed “hack jobs”, but not all are.
Yes, God made us Male exclusive-or Female. In some cases, it’s one of St. Paul’s “thorns” to be dealt with, just like SSA, addictions, loss of or missing limbs, Downs Syndrome and the like.
