My Own Wings
My Own Wings is a transmedia project that aims to explore the intersex identity. Originally the term "hermaphrodite" was used to describe the phenomena, but it has since been substituted with intersex because it was seen as offensive. Intersex people are not born with "both" sexes but born with a variation from the standard of what is socially accepted as a male or female body.
