Item description for Sugar and Spice and Puppy Dog Tails: Growing Up Intersexed by Katherine Connella...

Hermaphrodite! It's a word which usually invokes snickers or eye-rolling. But for those people born a combination of genders (estimated to be about 1 in 2000), it can be heartwrenching: a life lived in silence, secrets and fear.

Actress/author Katherine Connella steps out of the shadows to frankly reveal her childhood and adolescence growing up intersexed. Deemed a boy a birth (in spite of full female interior organs and irregular genitalia), she fought her whole life to prove what she was: a female. Katherine discusses survival of a number of traumas: incest, medical abuse, mental hospitalization, chemical-induced manic depression and a series of sexual assaults. Yet through it all, she writes with a spirit of humor and a positive outlook.

"I know my life would have been bizarre under any circumstances," Katherine chuckles today. "But being intersexed added an entirely new and dark layer to the big picture."

Reviews - What do customers think about Sugar and Spice and Puppy Dog Tails: Growing Up Intersexed?

Intensely personal and moving  Sep 20, 2001
I've read very few memoirs as utterly revealing and no-holds-barred as Katherine Connella's powerful coming of age story. Born intersexed at a time when the condition was a complete medical mystery (it's only now becoming broadly discussed in the medical community), Connella was raised as a boy, all the while knowing deep down that she was indeed female. Her tale takes you through mental institutions, violence, discrimination, and misunderstanding, yet she clearly tells this difficult tale from a survivor's perspective.

If you're curious about intersexuality and eager to learn about it from a personal rather than a clinical point of view, I wholeheartedly recommend Connella's brave, moving book.
