Hermophrodite dating real sex
We could change the example, then: If I wake up feeling like the President of the U. Of course not; and it's important to this example that the property of being the President of the U. a socially constructed property—e.g., it's not that some but not others are born with the attribute/property of "being a future President of the U. In these groups, hermaphroditism is a normal condition, enabling a form of sexual reproduction in which either partner can act as the "female" or "male".Medical procedures could aid in restoring persons to their appropriate sex. Hermaphrodite persons suffer a biological defect, which, strictly speaking, implies nothing about gender confusion (although they might also be gender confused).Transgender persons suffer gender confusion because of psychological and/or hormonal reasons.Fortunately, there is good reason to think that a sex is determined genetically.

Let me preface my comments by saying that I'm not an expert in this matter; nonetheless, I'll do my best to think clearly about the issues.

(My own view is that not all gender is socially constructed, thus at least some gender is determined by sex).
Either there is a fact of the matter as to which sex a person is, or there isn't.
To get to the point, what is the moral thing to do for a hermaphrodite? If they decide to engage in a relationship, how will they determine which sex to date? I am well aware of what the bible has to say about engaging in homosexual activity, but would it be considered moral for someone who has both reproductive organs to choose which gender to date?
