Should intersex people be allowed to marry?

Intersex may be defined as: a person who has characteristics of more than one gender. This could consist of someone having male and female genitalia or a chromosomal abnormality.

Intersex is different from transgender, in that a person who is transgender identifies with the opposite gender of what their genitalia suggest, while an intersex person cannot be classified into a gender for biological reasons.

Here are some examples: A person is born with both female and male genitalia A person is born with a "X and Y" chromosome and is genetically male but due to no prenatal androgen exposure, a person is born with female genitalia. Later in life androgens do become present in puberty and they develop male characteristics.

So in this case of a person being born intersex, should these people be allowed to marry? Should they be allowed all the rights that people of conventional genders are allowed?

    EVERYONE should be allowed to marry someone who wishes to marry them, regardless of what's between their legs and regardless of what their chromosomes say their sex is supposed to be. Love is love regardless of sex or gender.

    No. Their genes are defective and they must be prevented from reproducing at all costs, lest there be a society of freaks.

    Any two consenting adults should be able to marry. Marriage should be a civil ceremony, and those who want to add a religious element to it should be free to search out a church/temple/whatever that is willing to conduct a ceremony for them.

    But the basic marriage should be a simple civil contract.

    Yes.

    They were born with PHYSICAL characteristics of more than one gender!

    Is there a chromosome that causes a person to be gay?

    Yes.

    That would have been my whole answer but apparently it needs to be at least 15 characters.
