The hidden Cost of Kallmann’s syndrome

2016-05-14 18.58.18-1What many people don’t seem to see about being Intersex and having Kallmann’s syndrome is that there is a huge hidden cost to being intersex and having Kallmann’s syndrome. One of those huge hidden cost I bear is the fact that I look way younger than my age and I’m never taken seriously as a person. It’s something that not many people know what it means to be intersex and have an intersex/DSD medical condition like Kallmann’s syndrome. That’s why, what many people don’t see is that I struggle to be taken seriously as a person despite having Kallmann’s syndrome.

One thing that many people don’t see is that being someone who is Intersex/DSD and having Kallmann’s syndrome, it’s hard for me to be seen as a serious person or a person at all. I am often times looked down as being way younger looking than my age. Despite being 40 yrs old but I don’t look like a 40 yr old and often times people mistaken me for a 23 or 25 yr old. Because of that, it’s often why I don’t get many opportunities in life and I am not in a relationship with women. The one that bothers me the most is that having Kallmann’s syndrome and being intersex/DSD, I’m always looked at as being younger looking than my age and not being seen as the true age. It’s why, the hardest part in my life is trying to be seen as a serious person or a person at all. Instead I’m seen as being too young to be taken seriously and as a result, I’m left out of all the opportunities in life. It’s why I don’t get to do many things in life that other people get to do and as a result I am shut out of everything in life.

That’s why for me, I mostly stick to myself and have very little to no friends because the fact that people don’t see me as a real person or take me seriously as a person. They see me as being young looking or not mature enough. It’s why because of my Kallmann’s syndrome and being intersex/DSD, I don’t get many opportunities that other normal people get to have. I’ve sheltered myself because the fact that people don’t take me seriously anymore and don’t even see me as a viable person. It’s why I don’t date women because of the fact that many women wouldn’t want to date someone that looks way younger looking than their actual age. It’s why I have stayed single for a long time and will most likely be single until the very end.

The sad fact is that, what many people don’t seem to realize is that there is a HUGE hidden cost to being intersex/DSD and having an intersex/DSD condition like Kallmann’s syndrome.  That cost is something that many delusional queers, trans or the LGBT don’t seem to get and will never get unless they are born into it. It’s why I tell people, it ain’t no fun being born with an Intersex/DSD condition because there is a hidden price to pay and that hidden price has a huge biological, physiological and psychological cost attached to it. That cost to me is that it’s nice to look younger than your age but it comes at a HUGE cost of not being taken seriously or not being seen as a viable person. It’s something I have to face and deal with for the rest of my life as a someone who’s intersex/DSD and has Kallmann’s syndrome.
