ODIELE. NOT MAN. NOT WOMAN.
Humans have no control over the bodies they are born with. Odiele has male chromosomes but was raised as a girl because her body converts testosterone to estrogen. It’s a relatively rare condition that today is called intersex.
The media and fashion industry are using intersex Odiele to promote women who strongly resemble men. It fits the long-term New World Order goal of having only one gender, sort of a blend of male and female.
While the alt-right has no quarrel with intersex people, there is a sinister agenda in promoting them in the name of inclusion. No woman or man should aspire to look like Odiele.
Mass androgyny would be a disaster for the human race.
NO SEXUAL ATTRACTION HERE FOR THE TYPICAL MALE.

It took a long time for Odiele, now 28, to come out of hiding, but in January she came out publicly in Vogue, and instantly brought into focus the sixth – and least appreciated – letter in the queer acronym, LGBTQI. “For a lot of people, the first time they hear about it is when they talk to me,” Odiele says. “Most people really have no idea.”
“There’s a kind of shame placed on our bodies, like we’re not supposed to talk about it,” she says. “I will never know what it is to be a cis-gender woman, I will never be able to talk about a period or having a child, but I’m not a man either – I’m proud intersex.”
Like Calliope Stephanides in Jeffrey Eugenide’s 2003 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Middlesex, Odiele was born with internal testes, and no uterus or ovaries. She had one X and one Y chromosome, in keeping with men. “I have XY chromosome insensitivity,” she says. “I was born with internal testicles that produce testosterone, but which my body converts to oestrogen.” She smiles. “It’s crazy, right?”
There’s no one way of being intersex – the term covers around 30 variations of characteristics – but standard procedure has always involved surgery to force the body into one sex or the other, often on the assumption that bigger medical problems will lie in wait down the road. Odiele spent large parts of her childhood in and out of hospitals undergoing treatment, and she knows that time will never come back to her – like the body she was born with, it’s gone. “There are so many complications that come with surgeries, they’re irreversible,” she says. “You have to be on hormone therapy your whole life, and that messes up a lot of things.”
ODIELE WITH HUSBAND.
After coming out, Odiele met an intersex woman from Utah who had avoided surgery – a rarity. “She’s a very strong person, with a lot less trauma than I have,” she says. “But most people I’ve met have had surgery. To normalise the body, they just cut things out.” She considers it a human rights violation, an age-old impulse to correct things that don’t conform to the binary ways in which men seek to shape the world. As with transgender rights, she believes greater visibility will change the way people treat intersex people.
As a child, Odiele could feel the pull of the male chromosomes she was born with, but was unable to articulate why. “It’s weird because I went to psychologists my whole life and even when I had a question, everyone just dismissed it.”
In the Catholic school she attended she was a bundle of hyperactivity, always fidgeting in class – flipping her chair, upsetting her desk. “I couldn’t sit still,” she says. “I was always moving around.” She thinks briefly before adding. “They did love me, though, my teachers. They loved and hated me at the same time.”
Finding out she was intersex was both a relief and a shock. “I always felt like I was the only one like me, that I had this weird thing going on – having to go and see the doctor for my genitals, thinking, ‘What the hell is wrong with me?’”
Being prodded and stared at for so much of her childhood was humiliating and lonely. Now she feels the solidarity of a community, with just a lingering trace of sadness. So many surgeries, so much energy spent on “fixing” her. “There’s nothing wrong with being a little bit different,” she says – the mantra of the age. “I just don’t understand why we need to fix something that’s not broken.”
By coincidence David Duke ran the following Tweet a little while ago. Although the point he makes is about race, and the example is extreme, the point remains that women should strive to be as feminine as possible and men should strive to be as masculine as possible.
