Just read the novel Golden Boy, by Abigail Tarttelin, about a 16 year-old intersex boy. The full review’s coming up separately, but I want to quickly say that I found it hard to put down, and that it didn’t– unlike lots of stuff written by non-intersex people about intersex people – offend me or, imho, promote views that harm the intersex community. In fact, there’s a ton of stuff about it that I really liked—like how the protagonist’s girlfriend affectionately calls him “half and half”, like one of mine used to do. 🙂

Intersex or not, you ought to read this.  I didn’t want it to end….
