Faux-intersexism breaks out in Denver

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…

    To the Huffpo and other journo’s that ran with this, saying that he now lives as ‘a woman’ – it took less than two minutes to google him and pull up his less-than-womanish profiles on facebutt and linkedin. Wasn’t hard, ask me how if you don’t know how to do it…

    I wonder if his male-pattern baldness vanished when he suddenly BECAME A WOMAN. I wonder why the Huffposts of the world love it so much when they see just how easy it is to BECOME A WOMAN? I wonder why these journalists are so lazy and ignorant? What else would they believe without bothering to fact-check a story? What can we cook up to put out there? “I went to the hospital with a urinary tract infection and they found…I’M A MAN!! TESTES!! That’s why I’ve always felt like a man ‘inside!'”

    The whole tranny thing is the latest sex-circus that the media are pumping up to sell advertising. Once we’re weary of the kiddy porn stories and the child sex trafficking stories, they have to recapture our hormonal interest with something else. Always upping the ante. Always an attack on Female Being.


  4. DaveSquirrel Post author

    I agree, it is a meeja circus to sell rags. It is also seasoning the general public into believing these fairy stories, particularly the faux-intersex stories, rather than the two most common causes of twanz – internalised homophobia or perverted predator. That covers the majority, the rest have jendah form of BIID (usually the TS, a separate class to the TGs, the latter being outright nutters).

    I blogged this on my blog and one dead give away to his whole claims of intersex, he fathered a child and fathered 6 children. No intersex person that I know of has been documented by the medical community to father a child NATURALLY. Vast majority of Intersex people including myself are sterile and sterile from birth to death. So we can’t father children. As for his claims of intersex, what Intersex condition, I’m waiting to hear what kind of intersex condition he’s claiming to have. This Steve guy claiming intersex, is nothing more than a Transsexual in denial and trying to use the intersex excuse to justify his transsexuality and transition.

    Reblogged this on Living Kallmann’s Syndrome and commented:
    Faux-intersexism is very common within the Trans community. It clearly shows that people like Steve Crecelius is now pretending and claiming to be intersex, without ever naming a single intersex condition that they are diagnosed with. I am still waiting for Steve Crecelius to say what kind of Intersex condition that he’s claiming to have. It’s clear that people like Steve Crecelius are like the Zoe Alan Brain’s of pretending and claiming to be born with something, without ever naming a single intersex condition. I also have to say that the Media got duped and conned into Steve Crecelius’s so called intersex claims.

    LMAO. Yesterday on twitter I sent an inquiry to Ashley J Jennings, the reporter who originated the story asking if any fact checking had been done but she declined to answer.
    Kidney stones make me want to dress in laydeeface!!!! Through no choice of my own!!! lol


  8. hearthrising

    If he peed blood from his kidney stone, that means he got a period! Oh, and Huffpo firmly and finally established their cred as the Tabloid for Computers (TM) with the “pregnant man” story.

    Thanks Nicky, I thought you would be interested in this one, another faux-intersex case. As you read the articles and go through it bit by bit, each fragment seemed suspicious – but finding the Huffpo comment about when he was 17 really sealed the deal that he was gay-in-denial and internalised homophobia. The fertility part was very suspicious too – and apparently four out of the six were boys.

    @ GM
    The earliest story that I (just) found was 12 May, a local rag (emphasis on rag obviously)

    And yo-ho-ho, guess what, the dude is ex-cop – close enough to ex-military (ex-military and IT are the top two professions of nouveau-laydees it seems) followed by prostitution.

    Regarding the fact-checking, he doesn’t even have another facebutt account in his Stevie name, only his dudely name with dudely photo.

    As I quickly read the Denver Post story, it becomes clear that one of the main purposes of these tabloid stories is to get women to accept this TG dressup – the ‘stand by your man’ propaganda. The public are being lied to a lot with these stories, they are full of spin and misleading information.

    And yo, Steve-o was another cross-dresser from childhood (Denver Post)

    He began to explain how he liked to dress up in his mother’s clothes as a child, and how natural it felt. She saw his tears, and knew how hard it was for him. Her first response was to take him shopping for a bra.

    Kind of kills the fairytale of ‘normal bloke, fathered six kids, accidentally finds out he is [faux-intersex] a woman inside’.

    Real story – cross-dresser since childhood. Repressed homosexual with internalised homophobia. Marries a woman, has six kids. Possibly sneaking out to the gay bars during the marriage. Concocts bullshit story about kidney stones (probably to fool wifey and all their friends) and story escapes local paper and goes international. None of the reporters seemed to be able to work Google. Anonymous internutz blogger finds giant holes in story after a few minutes.

    Yeap and it doesn’t take a Harvard, Smith or Yale college degree to find so many holes in this faux-intersex claim. I knew Steve Crecelius wasn’t intersex, when he couldn’t name a single intersex condition that he claims to have. The other was that he fathered 6 kids prior to his faux-intersex claim. It’s clear that when someone claims to be intersex and Really Fathered 6 children. They ain’t intersex by any stretch of an imagination. If people didn’t see the fact that he fathered 6 kids prior to claiming his so called faux-intersex condition. They either got lied to by the media or do duped and conned by a transsexual.

    One thing out of this so called faux-intersex claim, it looks like Steve Crecelius is doing what Zoe Alan Brain likes to push with his faux-intersex claims. The similarities are shocking that Steve Crecelius, who lived a normal male life, then out of the blue transition and claim a faux-intersex condition in order to justify his transition. Sounds like Steve Crecelius is pulling a Zoe Alan Brain on the internet, Media and anyone who reads his SOB story.

    The really sad thing of all this, Intersex people like me have to fight constantly to dispel all the myths and all the crap that trans people like Zoe Alan Brain and now Steve Crecelius like to push to people. It’s making life very hard for intersex people to just simply exist when you have Trans people muddying the waters.The really frightening thing of all this, is how many more are going to pull a Zoe Alan Brain on the internet, in society and try to pull a faux-intersex claim to people. It just boggles my mind

    Commonsense should really prevail with regards to the fertility thing, it doesn’t take a much to reduce a ‘regular’ male’s fertility, yet to overlook a (supposedly in his case) congenital condition whereby most intersex are either infertile or greatly reduced fertility, is astounding.

    But the part where he obviously had at least one, probably the two, working testes gets me. In foetal development the TWO foetal gonads either remain internal and develop as ovaries, or they descend and develop as testes. To lay claim for two sets of gonads??? Hence he is a medical miracle(!) And he must have had two normal looking testes, otherwise he/doctors would have investigated the matter before, but the way all the stories are written up, the ‘kidney stone episode’ was the thing that shed the light on the until-then-unknown ‘intersex’ condition (some tabloids going the full monty and claiming it proof of his ‘womanhood’).

    Shoddy fucking journalism.


  13. Nicky

    It’s shoddy journalism at it’s finest. Then it’s takes a blogger like us to do the hard nose investigation to bring the truth to anyone’s so called faux-intersex claims.


  14. DaveSquirrel Post author

    I guess if you count five minutes of googling, “hard nosed investigation”, then yes Nicky – LOL
    The point being that it really wasn’t that hard – so either these journalists (and all the agencies that picked it up on the wire) are stupid/lazy, or this is deliberate patriarchy propaganda. Given that the level of stupidity required would have to be so great as to miss the results on the first page of google, I am going for the latter.
