Intersex Skeleton?

Recommended Posts

Guest DisDwarf

Is it possible to have a male body with a few parts of a female skeleton or female elbow angles or leg bone curvatures? Have you ever heard of something like that?

I have not seen any actual studies to prove or disprove this hypothesis but from personal experience I can tell you that I have never found a comfortable pair of mens shoes, however womens flats fit the shape of my foot perfectly so I am inclined to believe that we might just all have a few of the skeletal bits from our true gender tossed into the mix.

Love ya,

Sally

There are no definitive skeletal differences between male and female only generalizations that depend on age, race, and other factors. The only thing that comes close to being an indicator of sex is the hip bone after maturity and even that is a generalization.

Thanks, N. Jane! I always wondered about that...good to know. I always thought how they did that on the TV seemed a bit, well, dodgy.

Some ideas on that subject surface once in a while. Like the fact that a mans ring finger is longer than the digit finger while women will have both about the same length or a longer digit finger.

The most interesting to me is the angle of the elbow assembly. When a man holds his arms straight down, palms toward the front, he can touch the sides of his hands to his thighs (this is while standing). In a woman's skeleton, the elbows arch in and touch her waist, making it impossible for her hands to brush against her hips. Therory is something to do with the ability to cradle an infant.

But skeleton types are so variant.

And then men's chins tend to be square, women's more pointed. Some men have a pronounced brow-ridge.

And me? I always had no Adam's apple. I also have the 'above' tendancies toward a female skeleton with no real brow ridge, and the hand and elbow characteristics. Am I intersexed? Who knows. I am definately taller than a woman would normally be. Go figure.

Hi Dis,

Nature can throw any variation into the mix. I know this is not skeletal info

but...if I loose say 14 or so pounds ,13 stone to 12, I have fairly pronounced hips.

I deffo have b/moobs. So yeh, there are ""questionable" likeness"es out there .

Irradiated food, chemicals, lifestyle ,,,,not surprised myself, viv :)

Are you sure about that ? I mean... In general men have narrower hips compared to their waist than women, so wouldn't it make sense that

when men hold their arms down and palms front, they would be the ones who have hard time touching their hips/thighs because their elbows

are touching their waist/sides and their hips are too narrow...

I certainly can't... If I stand up straight, with my legs together and hold my arms straight down and palms front, and try and touch my hips

with the sides of my hands, the closest I get is somewhere around 10cm...

Hi all,

Everyone is an individual and lots of physical features (like stature) vary over a range with areas of overlap between the sexes, even if the averages for each sex are different.

There is no such thing as a "female" elbow angle. This is one physical feature with considerable overlap between the sexes. It is not even clear whether there is a sex difference in the averages.

See Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbow-joint#Carrying_angle

There is, however, extensive overlap in the carrying angle between individual men and women, and a sex-bias has not been consistently observed in scientific studies.

Friendly greetings to all,

Peggy

      Mine were painful for about eighteen months. Three years on hrt I can still function and have no pain at all. The fact you are in pain for a few days after is a red flag for me. Also, I have never read that estrogen or progesterone drops T levels. I'm so sorry you're experiencing this but I think you need to do some serious research. Best of luck....

      I'm almost embarrassed to report that my favorite trucks have been Toyota Tacoma pickups - I've owned two, both white! Although I did own a 67' Chevy Carryall once that was a gas guzzler but lots of fun to drive.  I bought it from a school system and it was school-bus yellow I'm surrounded by farmers who all have the latest pickups. I envy them all!   Gwen

      Good luck Amanda.   I had a friend for many years. As I changed he became very touchy and, particuarly,  toward the middle of last year, very trans and homo phobic. I think it was his other friends. He had worried about how other people would react with him from the very beginning (in fact has always been concerned at anything which could taint him as unusual). To me it seems like insecurety, but the break came when his other friends started winding him up, saying that we were an item. He finally snapped and lost his temper ridiculing the clothes I wore.   At that point I decided I had had enough and could not put up with the abuse any longer. I walked and have heard nothing from him since.   Tracy

      The little cars I have had had would be almost invisible next to these   I did like the look of a Dodge some time back, but totally impractical for me. Even the garage is too small for anything other than a car.   Lovely photo Charlize x
