ANGUAGE ADVISORY - This is a program about the phenomenon of intersex. It is both scientific and personal in nature. Because the term intersex refers to people who, among other things, are born with both male and female sex traits and organs, this program includes the words ovary, testes, uterus, fallopian tubes, genitals, genitalia, gonads, gonadism, breasts, and penetrative vaginal sex (as a physician-presumed desired result in adulthood, around 19:10).
There is nothing indecent about the use of these words in this context. Nevertheless, we have included a content notice at the beginning of the program. Most of us are conditioned to think of sex in binary terms " people are either male or female, one or the other. But nature is rarely if ever binary, and some people are born with a combination of male and female organs, internal and external, and these people are called intersex. (The term intersex also encompasses other things, such as different ways in which peoples bodies react to hormones.) People can be intersex without even knowing of it; we recall a recent story of a man in his seventies who, following abdominal surgery, discovered that he had a uterus and ovaries.
On this edition of OutCasting, we talk with two eminent authorities on intersex who are intersex themselves: Dr. Georgiann Davis, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the board president of InterACT: Advocates for Intersex Youth, and Dr. Cary Gabriel Costello, Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and the coordinator of the LGBT Studies Program there.
On this episode, we look into questions like: How does the medical profession deal with intersex people? What kinds of discrimination to intersex people experience? Is it a medical emergency if a baby is born with intersex traits? Is it justifiable to perform life-affecting elective surgery on an infant simply to try to eliminate his or her intersex traits? Can an intersex people just be allowed to grow up with their intersex traits intact? Join us for this fascinating discussion.

We continue our look at gay parenting in this fascinating discussion with James Howe, a well-known author. In this interview, Jim talks with OutCaster Jamie about what it was like to grow up as gay in the 1950s and 1960s, why he felt he couldn't come out until later in life, and the support systems that eventually assisted him in coming out. They also talk about his strong desire to be a dad, about the difficulties he and his family experienced as he accepted his gay identity and transitioned into a new life outside of his marriage to his wife, and about his relationship with his daughter and the effects his coming out had on her.
This is the second part of an OutCasting series on gay parenting. The first part featured Gabriel Blau, a longtime LGBTQ activist, who married his husband and adopted a child. In contrast, our guest on this program, James Howe became a father in a heterosexual marriage and came out during the course of his marriage.
