It occurs to me that this could possibly become feature article material... I'll try thinking up some ways to improve it. KaloFoxfire 04:40, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
- I think perhaps some mention regarding how some people see hermaphrodites as little more than sexualized caricatures, when many herms that I know prefer not being characterized as a sex object. Many herms prefer their sex to be considered no different than aperson of the male or female sex.

My concern re: the abbreviation section (I added the NPOV template) is about the "misunderstanding" comment - I'm not sure it demonstrates anything other than a desire not to write out really long words constantly. I think that bit could be struck or at least reworded. Silvermink 00:20, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
I was concerned with the tone and lack of factual information (e.g. misinformation about the greek myth) in the original. Please look this new version over and tell me what you think. --Lynn Onyx 07:11, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
- So what cleanup is needed? --Lynn Onyx 03:09, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
I can imagine it was in reference to the personal rant that 188.8.131.52 made on 27 December 2007. The information didn't belong on the Hermaphrodite page because it involved gender identity of humans, which I don't really see directly relating to this topic, especially when the pages for Transgender and Transsexual exists. Perhaps it can be replaced with something like... "Don't confuse this with transgender" or whatnot, but I also removed the "intersex" thing by the same user (184.108.40.206) because there's a thing at the head of the page, directing the user toward wikipedia for intersex regarding humans. Just explaining my edit. The article seems cleaned up to me, but I'm not sure how this wiki works, so I'll leave that there. Nexnix 13:11, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Shemales are not hermaphrodites for the most part (see wikipedia). They have female characteristics, but carry the male sex and lack the female. I'm not sure why 'shemale' links to here. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Miriafox (talk • contribs) .
I agree. If "shemale" redirects here, the article should at least define the term. --Trickster Wolf 19:22, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
