KISSIMMEE, Fla. | A Central Florida intersex woman asked an Osceola County judge for a gender marker change on her birth certificate Jan. 15.
Juleigh Amanda Mayfield was born 47XXY, meaning she has an additional chromosome attached to each pair of her chromosomes. This left Mayfield neither completely biologically male or female, but both. At birth, her parents began raising her as male.
