Man Admitted to Hospital for Kidney Stone, Discovers He's a Woman

Denver, Colorado photographer Steve Crecelius was admitted to the hospital for a kidney stone. After testing, he received a surprising results that he is actually a woman. "When I was about 6 years old, I started having these feminine feelings, but that was in the '60s. Wearing my mom's makeup, I thought I looked pretty," Crecelius told ABC News. He was intersex, meaning he had both male genitalia and internal female sex organs. Intersex is a term used to describe people who bear both external genitals and internal organs, such as testes and ovaries. "The nurse is reading the ultrasound and says, 'Huh, this says you're a female,' Crecelius said. "It was very liberating. I had spent so much energy after the age of 13 constantly evaluating how people looked at me and acted towards me." Steve, who now goes by "Stevie," said his wife and their six children accepted his new identity right away. "We told them individually. Some were in person and some weren't," Crecelius said. "Every one of them said, 'We don't care one way or the other. We love you for who you are and you're still my dad.'" Crecelius and his wife, Debbie, have been together for 25 years and she's supported him every step of the way, including taking him to buy his first bra. "The condition used to be called hermaphroditism, meaning that person can't be identified as male or female," Crecelius said. According to the Intersex Society of North America, more than 1,500 children a year are born intersex. Source ABC News
