It’s an odd feeling to be turned off by a compliment.
I don’t typically tell people I’m intersex. It’s not that I’m ashamed, but I’d rather not be treated differently.
“Maybe I should have said something, but at that moment, just getting out of there unnoticed and safely seemed most important…”
The staff made it clear my sexual orientation should be kept hidden.
It’s offensively wrong to paint an entire community with one brush.
