  • There's a rumor going around that Lady Gaga is intersex. Supposedly she said, "It's not something that I'm ashamed of, just isn't something that I go around telling everyone. Yes. I have both male and female genitalia..."

"But I consider myself a female. It's just a little bit of a penis and really doesn't interfere much with my life. The reason I haven't talked about it is that its not a big deal to me. Like, come on. It's not like we all go around talking about our [genitalia]. I think this is a great opportunity to make other multiple-gendered people feel more comfortable with their bodies. I'm sexy, I'm hot. I have both. Big fucking deal." There's no link to where the quote came from, but there is also an upskirt video from one of her concerts that shows a bulge in her underwear (that may just be bunched up underwear).

Monotremasaurus Rextraordaire

I have both male and female genitalia

No, she does not. No one does. It's impossible. This is greatly simplified, but there is a single structure in the fetus which develops into either a penis or a vagina or into genitalia which is not clearly one or the other. For a person to have two sets of genitalia, they would have to have two structures to begin with. That is a little like having two hearts (proto-hearts, or whatever fetii have before the heart develops). I recommend that everybody go read the [] entry on Jamie Lee Curtis being XY.
