Very rare. It's a general term used for a variety of conditions (chromosomes other than xx and xy) in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn't seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. Psychology gender identity may or may not be intersex. Preferred pronouns depend on the person.

Sex assigned at birth is either male, female or intersex. Gender fluid is a gender identity which refers to a gender which varies over time. A gender fluid person may at any time identify as male, female, neutrois, or any other non-binary identity, or some combination of identities. Their gender can also vary at random or vary in response to different circumstances. Preferred pronouns depend on the person.

    I'm really triggered by reading your definition of a Cis male as a "non-transgendered male." Why should males be defined in term of the negation of transgenderism? It's like referring to intact penises as "uncircumcised." The thing that is normal shouldn't be defined in terms of that which is abnormal. So I'm just triggered as fuck.
    Is this still revelant?

    So many words, when it's just so simple. 2 genders: Male and female, the rest is just bullshit people who are insecure and unhappy tell themselves.
