Entry level articles

The articles on thisisintersex.org are roughly divided into two levels: namely, an entry level and an advanced level. The information for the entry level is mainly informative and assumes less knowledge about intersex.

  • There is less reference to scientific publications than in the advanced articles.
  • Any basic knowledge the reader may lack is made accessible through ‘footnotes’. These become visible by clicking on a green dot in the text.
  • Specialist terms are underlined and explained when the cursor is placed on the word. Clicking on the word opens a page that sometimes goes into more detail about the meaning of the word.

The information is intended for those directly involved and allies who want to better understand sex diversity and the issues faced by intersex people. However, professionals will also find much knowledge in these pages that they can apply in their profession.
