Hi there,

Just wanted to send it to you, in case you're interested:

This story revolvs arouf the state lottery monopoly which insists that gay blog takes down its article on Superloto for the reason that they do not want to be associated with 'this sort of sites'

My regards,
Cyrill

For those who recognize my picture, please no that this is not a quote from me! I have never defined "intersex" in these words in any context. Many intersex people would consider using the term "faulty" in reference to their sex development to be an insult.

I have asked the managers of this blog to remove my photo. I am sure this post was made in error and expect that they will correct it soon.

In solidarity,

And, yes, it is "Please know..." not "Please no..." My grammer is usually better than that! I am just distressed at being misquoted, and there seems to be no "edit" function available.

I apologize for anyone who may have thought that this was being attributed to Anne. I personally don't like the word "faulty" either as I believe Intersex is a natural variation of the sex and the human condition. I was just defining the word as I had seen it defined.
