Our first post on hubpages on intersex awareness

We always wanted to make a difference. Making a difference is not easy. It needs time, patience, and effort. Blogging needs all these three things, especially when you want to make a difference. While we are willing to give the effort to make a difference, we are running a little low in the time and patience departments. We need a readership if we want to make a difference. A blog’s readership does not grow overnight. Having said that, there are existing websites that have the readership and that are seeking content. We decided to take the advantage of such an authoritative website — hubpages — to publish our awareness related posts. Our first post on hubpages focuses on Intersex Awareness.

A great thing about hubpages is that each article is reviewed by hub-reviewers. I mean a real review, not an unmanned review. Each article has to maintain a minimum quality to be indexed. We published our first article on hubpages on May 12, 2017. As said in the last paragraph, the topic is Intersex Awareness. We hope more and more people will know about intersex children and these children will have a normal life just like any boy or any girl. The article is linked below.


Intersex Children

1.7% babies around the globe are born in between a female and male trait. This means that intersex people are as common as people with red hair. The article focuses on facts in raising intersex awareness. It explains how common intersex is, how well the society embraces intersex children, and if “fixing” intersex children is necessary. Read the article on hubpages.

From now, we will attempt to publish a few impactful posts (especially on awareness) on hubpages and link them from our blog. Please feel free to provide comments either on hubpages, or on this blog.

  1. First of all, congratulations for getting your article published on Hub pages. There are some strict standards to adhere to, so good for you! Secondly, you post sounds interesting. A close friend of mine nearing 50 underwent a sex change because he had always had a gender identity problem. While this is a different issue, the idea that people exist between the two genders is not an issue that people discuss comfortably. So again, good on you!
    1. Thank you for visiting and commenting. Agreed that people may not feel comfortable in discussing intersex and transgender orientations as much as they are comfortable discussing male or female orientations. I think, more awareness is required. The BBC post — The midwife who saved intersex babies — caught my attention and touched my heart a few weeks ago, which motivated me in writing this awareness post on hubpages. At the end of the hub, I provided a video link, which is probably the United Nations’ first video on intersex awareness.

      Thanks again. Best regards.

  2. I did not know About the Numbers.

    IT is a strange thing people Needed to be Placed in sexes.

    Kind regards,

    1. Agreed, it is strange. Secrecy and surgery have been common practices for many years for intersex children, even though they are just normal kids.

      I appreciate your visit and kinds comments.

  3. This is way to go and excellent too. More effort have to be put in public awareness on the issue of intersex. People get easily uncomfortable at the topic of intersex and this is as a result of lack of proper education on the topic. I commend your genuine effort really and I expect to see more of this though.
    1. I appreciate your comment here. We will come up with more awareness related posts. Thank you once again for your valuable comments on our blog. Have a wonderful weekend.
  4. To pick such a topic for your first hubpage experience is truly commendable. Slowly society is accepting this as just a natural happening and efforts are made to embrace them with love and care. More and more governments are recognising the need to give them special attention.
  5. I haven’t used Hubpages but I heard it is a good platform for blogging. You are right making a difference, is very hard and there is need a lot of work and commitment. I think that if we work hard and give all the best we can be the one that is leaving something behind!
  6. This is actually a great stepping stone towards more open society. I hope government everywhere should legislate important issues concerning inter sex society. I hope this will breed education and awareness to people worldwide. Congratulations!
  7. That’s so good for you. Congrats! More power on tackling the intersex awareness about children. Discrimination is not welcome in this world. No to racism and discrimination. Every child with this condition is just as normal as a normal child.
  8. Nice. I’m sure this post will help not only the children but also those parents to be aware of intersex. We should always guide our children so they won’t do unnecessary things that will affect their lives. Thanks for this post. Good Job! 🙂
  9. I am on Hubpages. I joined Hubpages in 2010. When I created my account on Hubpages, I also joined many similar sites, Squidoo, Helium to name few. However, most of these sites are shut down and Hubpages is still going strong. I have even completed Hubpages Apprentice program (which was halted a long time ago). Intersex is a serious issue in our country as well. I hope to find your article on Hubpages.
  10. It is good that you’re speaking up for those kids that are being stereotyped in a way in our society. I do not see anything wrong in intersex kids for they deserve normal lives like every other people in this world. I am glad that you’re really making a difference.
  11. Hubpages is one among its kinds that kicked off a long time ago and still running. it’s a great platform with quality materials, and very challenging with regards to membership, so I say a big congrats to you.

    Your post talks about a subject that rarely makes the news until recent times. I think it’s very important we share such details as a way of informing, enlightening and urging people to accept and live with intersex people without any show of rejection.

    In the country where I come from, such people face harsh treatment from the society. Intersex people are perceived sometimes as been possessed by demons. So i think post like this might make a difference.

  12. The intersex people are very common now and I think people should stop judged them too harsh. We have evolved in many domains we should evolve in this domain as well and stop looking with the finger because in one day we may be the one who will be judged for who knows what stupidity.
    It is not their fault they have been born in this way, I don’t see why some people are really bothered by this aspect!
    Hubpages was a good choice to post your blog and I hope many people will read it!
  13. Absolutely loved your article on the matter and I 100% agree with you!

    Something that worries me a lot is when this awareness is not brought inside schools and you have teachers with a complete disregard for their students’ comfort! A figure that children and teens often look to for protection and understanding. I’ve sadly seen this happen twice this year alone, one time in a high school class and another in a university class.

    I have a question though. What is your opinion on puberty suppressors for individuals whose gender is obvious at birth (I use gender loosely here because for me intersex is, in fact, a gender although some won’t agree)? In my opinion, I think that intersex individuals should benefit from these in the same way that the transsexual community does. We mustn’t forget that gender is a confusing construct and it might take someone quite a while to decide on who they truly are. I’d feel horrible if I ever forced my child to “pick” a gender. I’m pretty sure that they would resent me for life if anything went wrong!

    Once again, that was a great read!
