Yesterday on the Tyra Banks Show she interviewed people that have male and female sex organs. She stated 1 in every 2000 births the baby is born "intersex". She compares it to red headed people. 1 in every 2000 people have red hair. What is Morristowns population? And if it were that common why do we never hear about? Do you think the statistic Tyra gave is correct?

i have read that most hermaphrodites have one genital removed as a infant. the one that shows dominance in traits is the one that they leave as a primary sex organ.

What if, as a parent, you make the wrong choice for your child. Life is already hard enough.

There is no way that statement is correct. Statistic wise, Morristown would have 60 intersex people. Surely you would hear more about this if it were that common.

See, the statistics are correct, but there are people that don't know that they have another sex organ, Someone who is predominately male could have an ovary inside him, and die without knowing, Same with someone predominately female, she could have an undecended testicle around the area where her ovary should be, so no questions are raised during a pelvic exam. Sometimes It can cause the person to be sterile, while others can go on to have children. but for people with hidden abnormalities, unless they have reproductive problems, or a sharp persistant pain (which could be an ovary in a man pressing on his bladder) that they have checked out my a medical professional, most of the time they never know themselfs

the interesting fact about hermaphrodites is that because they are from two separate fertalized eggs that fuse as one, they have 2 sets of DNA, of course one is predominant, being found in body fluids and saliva, the other only presents itself in about 5% of the body, but if that person were to murder someone and a hair fall out of their head, but the hair have the recessive DNA, they could test the person's saliva and get two separate DNA, so the person would not be convicted. there have been some cases where the recessive DNA is predominant in the reproductive system and a mother have a child, and the child's DNA not match the mothers. A Chimera, or Chimera DNA, is a person who has 2 sets of DNA but they result from two embryos of the same sex fusing together. These people usually never know that they have 2 sets of DNA, unless they need an organ trasnplant and they have a family member (child, or parent) that is willing to donate, so they run genetic testing and not only is the child not a match, but the DNA test says that this isn't their child. With that being said, what is the chance that a father asks for a paternity test, and it comes back negative, he believes the child isn't his, when in fact it is, he just has Chimera DNA? Crazy to think about huh? Take a look : http://boingboing.net/2009/05/01/the-mind-blo...

Yeah,I definitely can see it being correct. When first fertilized,you aren't a specified gender. You're simply a fertilized egg. Gender is developed later in pregnancy. This can somewhat explain why you can have a twin of another gender. Also,a lot of us are actually in the womb with a twin...but we sometimes can absorb that twin. There are cases of people with tumors filled with teeth or other body parts from where they absorbed the other twin in the womb.

On the population thing,remember,population doesn't exactly mean that is how many of those types of people are in your community. If someone said that 1 out of 10 people had blue eyes,that doesn't necessarily mean 1 out of 10 people in your town have blue eyes.

We all start female in the womb. Ovaries are testes that did not drop or, testes are overies that did not drop. Different sex twins come from 2 eggs, their sex was determined before the parents knew they were having twins.
