"The real person, the soul, has no realization of sex or gender. Our human bodies are but a temporary challenge for each soul to realize & work through. Human body sex and/or gender identity is just another issue to overcome on the road to enlightenment. 

Gender queer people will understand exactly what I'm saying. Enjoy your life's journey however you please knowing that when you come to the point of realization that we are all One, you will understand that a house divided against itself cannot stand. Loving and embracing yourself fully wherever you are in your life's journey is key to loving others. United we stand, divided we fall. Welcome to the religion of kindness.

My name is Josef Kirchner and this is my personal website where you can learn all about me-- my past, my present, my thoughts about the future. I've had the honor of getting to live a very unique life and I want to share it with you.

More than likely you have come to my personal website because you learned of me from somewhere else. If you simply Google my name on the Internet you will come up with all kinds of wild stories about me and a lot of misinformation.  Better to get your information from the source, wouldn't you agree? 

In this incarnation, I was born intersexed with a XY/XO male Mosaic chromosome pattern.  I didn't uncover my intersex secret till I was 40 years old, until then I'd thought I was your garden variety MTF transgender. My first Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) was performed as a baby to change me (or polarize me) from an intersexed to male. The opening of a partial vagina was fused to create a scrotum and undescended testicles were brought down, one being removed as it was an ovotestis. My genitourinary system through the penis was intact and the only surgery on my normal penis was circumcision until age 24 when I had MTF SRS.

I don't have anger towards my parents for their decision that they felt was for my good to lead a more normal life as a male that would have no knowledge of my birth condition. I began the process of transition to female in my teens and completed that transition fully at age 24. At age 40 my transition continued, and today, I am legally female, yet my outward appearance is male. 

My life now feels as harmonious and peaceful as it can get as a decidedly masculine male with a vagina. While I was born intersexed, I followed the path of the transsexual, yet I don't claim to be transsexual.  I'm an intersexed person who found my sweet spot living as a male with a vagina. I am a bit of a stranger in a strange land, but I like it that way.

Thousands of babies are born with intersexed conditions around the world every year.  Most never know they were altered as babies as I didn't until I was 40 years old. Many live in shame with their birth secret.  No person should be ashamed of how they came into this world.The intersexed certainly make a mockery of mankind's binary sex rule of male or female only.

I'm sure you have a lot of burning questions about my life, body, and motivations.  For this cause I created a Frequently Asked Questions page and am writing my condensed Memoir online as time permits that is free for all to read.  I may publish a more fully detailed memoir one day.  

Thanks for visiting.
