Five years ago, Steve Crecelius apparently went into hospital with kidney stones, and came out with a diagnosis of “woman”.
Denver-based photographer Stevie Crecelius says she always felt more like a woman inside, but a trip to the emergency room five years ago uncovered the reason why: She actually was.
“I had a kidney stone and we’re in the emergency room,” she told FOX 31. “The nurse is reading the ultrasound and says, ‘Huh, this says you’re a female’.”
Actually, Crecelius was born intersex, meaning she has an unclassifiable combination of male and female sex traits.
The news brought with it some understandable trepidation, but that soon gave way to the buoyancy of emancipation. “It validated everything I had always felt inside,” she said.
Of course, only a nurse who got their qualifications off the back of a cornflake packet would utter “Huh, this says you’re female”. Probably because a qualified one would diagnose ‘intersex’.
As for “an unclassifiable combination of male and female sex traits”, ummm, again no. If there are mixed or indeterminate genitalia or sex organs, it pretty well is classified as ‘intersex’. No ‘unclassifiable’ about it. The journalist probably got their training off the back of a cornflake packet as well. Here’s a tip: name the actual intersex condition.
It is fairly curious what treatment Steve/Stevie received after getting a diagnois of “woman”, given that kidney stone symptoms would indicate, well yanno, kidney stones? Personally I would be more than a little miffed at the hospital staff, when presented with a patient with kidney stone symptoms, just to fobb me off with diagnosis of “woman”. Severe pain is actually the sign that something is wrong and should be investigated. Cornflake packet degrees again perhaps?
The other thing, we born-females are curious to know Steve/Stevie, what – apart from bad period pains and pregnancy – does ‘feeling like a woman inside’ actually feel like? Pink maybe? Please do tell.
The Huffpo ran with it too. At the end of the video:
Stevie is now working in public as a woman and as a photographer. She is no longer afraid of letting anyone know and hopes her confidence will help other transgender people.
Working in public as a woman eh? Let’s just check that.
At Linkedin, whoopsies, still says “Steve”:
OK, but we are told that “Stevie” is now out to his family and working as ‘a woman’, lets check out facebutt:
Umm, yeah ok. Very womany looking profile pic there Steve. Pardon me if I don’t seem convinced that you are living and working as ‘a woman’. Part-time tranny more like it, with a generous side-serving of internalised homophobia:
“When I was 17, I was working my first part-time job at a TV station as a floor cameraman and the person in charge said to me, ‘You know, you walk like a queer,” Crecelius told Fox 31 in Denver. “I thought I was hiding who I was, and I wasn’t.”
Very strange actually, he was told he walked like ‘a queer’ (meaning back then, ‘flaming homosexual’ male). Mincing about really doesn’t mean that you are a female Steve.
Now, back to the Huffpo video, want to pull up one important detail:
and hopes her confidence will help other transgender people
Either you are intersex or you are tranz Steve old boy. You can’t be both. And if you are intersex like you claim, why aren’t you helping intersex people? Why help the tranz?
As for the mysterious and unnamed intersex condition Steve old boy, fathering six kids, way-to-go, no reduced fertility on your part, you are a goer! And we really must get the medical community onto this because it is pretty rare, even with the true hermaphroditism/gonadism, it is amazing you have a full set of both male and female gonads (rather than a mixture). You must have had four gonads to do this!
True Gonadal Intersex. Here the person must have both ovarian and testicular tissue. This might be in the same gonad (an ovotestis), or the person might have one ovary and one testis. The person may have XX chromosomes, XY chromosomes, or both. The external genitals may be ambiguous or may appear to be female or male. This condition used to be called true hermaphroditism. In most people with true gonadal intersex, the underlying cause is unknown, although in some animal studies it has been linked to exposure to common agricultural pesticides.
Frankly, I am going against the Denver quacks on this one, and diagnosing you with a case of Faux-Intersex-Trannyism and Internalised Homophobia. Don’t be ashamed Steve, there are others too with the same condition – get together and form a support group.
Or get a bloody room.
I forgot to add Steve/Stevie to the Lazy Tranny Namechanges hall of fame. Very creative of you there Steve, whoops, I mean Stevie…
