“Hermaphrodite”

“Hermaphrodite”

(noun)

An outdated and derogatory term for someone who was born visibly intersex. While some intersex people are working to reclaim this term, it is widely considered deeply offensive.

e.g. Seren began looking for a new doctor as soon as his current PCP used the term “hermaphrodite”
