Is the existence of hermaphrodite a myth?

There is a myth in Greek mythology about Hermaphroditus, the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. He was the god of hermaphrodites and effeminate men.

Are hermaphrodites a myth? No. They are generally refered to as 'intersex' or persons with 'disorders of sex development (DSD)'. The truth is that the labels of 'man' and 'woman' are not natural and they are many other sexes in existance.

If you'd like to look into this a bit more, here are some names to Google:
