Inb4 someone brings up tumblr or made-up trends, intersex is actually a word in biology used to describe several biological conditions in both humans and animals where a being has variations in sex characteristics that "do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies". Some people are born with these variations but some develop them during puberty.
The condition the person has can vary from a woman having facial hair or a deep voice to a man having breasts, and (in rare cases) a person having both male and female genitalia.
I knew someone who was intersex. She had CAIS (Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome). She has XY chromosomes but developed as a female in the womb. She didn't look or sound masculine at all but had to take estrogen pills because her body didn't produce any. She also can't have kids for this reason :(
