    By Cindy Gresselmeyer

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Frauenstudien / Gender-Forschung, be aware: 1,3, CVJM-Kolleg Kassel, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Sprechen Menschen heute von uneindeutigem Geschlecht, Geschlechtsumwandlungen, Transgender im Alltag, so fällt bald der identify „Conchita Wurst“. Er oder sie scheint nicht klar klassifizierbar zu sein. Allerdings steckt hinter der „Kunstfigur“ Conchita Wurst ein homosexueller Mann: Tom Neuwirth, der angibt sich wohl in seinem männlichen Körper als Mann zu fühlen.
    Somit hat er nichts mit Transsexualismus, oder dem dritten Geschlecht zu tun, sondern ist eindeutig männlichen Geschlechts. Jedoch deutet die Verwirrung hinsichtlich einer geschlechtlichen Zuordnung Tom Neuwiths auf eine Problematik hin, die sich auf das Leben von intersexuellen Menschen - auch Hermaphroditen genannt - auswirkt.
    In dieser Ausarbeitung soll es um diese Menschen – Hermaphroditen - gehen, um so nicht nur den Versuch zu unternehmen, ihre geschlechtliche state of affairs zu beschreiben, sondern auch auf eine Problematik ansatzweise hinzudeuten, die sich durch immer neue Gendertheorien für eine unterrepräsentierte Gruppe Menschen in dieser Gesellschaft ergibt.
    Ausgeklammert wird entsprechend, dass analog zur Begrifflichkeit des „Dritten Geschlechts“ heute „Queere Identität“ benutzt wird und u.a. von Anhängern der Queer-Theory und Transgenderanhängern daher u.a. beide Begriffe genutzt werden, um die unterschiedlichsten Ausprägungen von neuen „ideologischen Konstrukten“ zu bezeichnen, bzw. sie davon ausgehen, dass diese „(...) gesamte Geschlechtlichkeit gesellschaftlich konstruiert (...)“ sei.
    Das Geschlecht – Kategorien
    Das Geschlecht kann aktuell laut Wikipedia in zehn unterschiedliche Kategorien eingeordnet werden. Diese Kategorien beziehen sich u.a. auf das biologische Geschlecht beruhend auf Geschlechtsmerkmalen, sowie auf das genetische Geschlecht und das genitale Geschlecht. Diese möglichen Einordnungs-Kategorien betreffen u.a. Geschlechtsidentität, Geschlechtersozialisation, „Doing Gender“, kulturelle- und biologische Normierungen. So kann guy angeblich zwischen fifty six verschiedenen Geschlechtern bei seiner fb Einstellung wählen.
    Laut Ant bilden Geschlechtskategorien nicht nur Strukturen ab, sondern stützen auch Machtverhältnisse. Diese „ (...) auf die Unterdrückung bestimmter Personengruppen abzielen bzw. deren Unterdrückung nutzen.“

    Einleitung – used to be hat Conchita Wurst mit den Hermaphroditen zu tun?
    Das Geschlecht – Kategorien
    Die Unmöglichkeit einer Unmöglichkeit
    Fazit: used to be bedeutet das Dritte Geschlecht nun für Hermaphroditen?
