What is XXY?
XXY is the second most common type of healthy human male chromosome.
What is XXY not?
XXY is not interesex.
XXY is not a combination of XX and XY.
This site shares the truth about the XXY chromosomes. Nearly every search engine result online contains wildly misleading “facts” about XXY. There are four types of healthy human chromosomes (not just two), and XXY is one of them. (chromosomes are the building blocks of DNA.) XX and X0 are female, and XY and XXY are male.
Why is XXY important? XXY represents an evolving human race. Expecting mothers need to know the surprising truth that their XXY baby has no chromosome defect. Doctors, by and large, are not presently telling them this, and they regularly recommend abortion of XXY fetuses (285,448 terminations per year and rising).
Living XXY men need to know they can live on equal terms with XY men, yet the medical standards for XXY males are well below that of their XY counterparts, and doctors often treat their XXY patients with a stunning level of disrespect. The standards must change.
Who has XXY chromosomes? One in every five hundred men is endowed with XXY chromosomes. That means there about two million XXY men, many being treated as subnormal, unworthy humans by their doctors and educators. The problem is, many parents, researchers, doctors, and educators have a fundamental misunderstanding of the differences, and instead of seeking understanding, many mislabel XXY males as unintelligent, unruly, slow learners.
It is documented that XXY boys and men learn differently. Yet, our learning difference poses no imposition, slowing of pace, or unproductive interruption in a classroom. In fact, the difference may help increase critical thinking in classmates.
XXY is NOT Klinefelter: Google, Wikipedia, universities, nonprofits, Johns Hopkins, Genetics Home Reference, and National Institute of Child Health and Human Development all equate XXY chromosome humans as having a ‘condition called Klinefelter Syndrome,’ but they aren’t telling the truth. XXY is not a condition. The truth is, medical researchers lack real-world XXY experience; they benefit from not gaining experience, keeping their standards and research funding routine intact. Although they are aware of this, they promote incorrect and misleading data anyway.
Why should you take my word for it? I am an XXY man, and according to doctors, I am the antithesis of everything they say is typical XXY male. I have many success stories, and every reason to share them.
Aren’t there non-profits who advocate? The main non-profit organization who helps families of XXY boys and men in the US discouraged me from telling my story. Why? Well, I’m still trying to understand this, but that organization, AXYS, works directly with Johns Hopkins, who publishes grossly biased and questionable information about XXY boys and men.
Ideology and Education: If researchers, doctors, and educators are going to identify and diagnose difference, they must in equal measure illuminate the positive attributes and advantages of difference, otherwise, they are inherently promoting ignorance and intolerance. The dialog needs to change.
What can you do? How do we, as non-medical professionals, tell researchers, doctors, governments, and educators that they have a fundamental misunderstanding of XXY boys and men? Their interdependence will likely see them band together to reject the stark evidence. The good news is, there is a whole lot we can do. I hope you will take action, because this is a basic human rights issue, encompassing human equality, patient rights, invisible diversity, community, and equal education. This issue needs to be addressed on a community level.
