Clever premise, and well-written.

There might be...? A typo? Deliberate pun? Anyway, Intersexction --> Intersection (in the title.)

If it is a pun, I'm pretty sure the story needs to be rated T. :twilightblush:

Not a typo; this is intended. :ajsmug:

“I know intersex is being born with an ambiguous mix of what they call ‘chromosomes', but I do not realize the problem.”

Intersex is being born with an ambiguous set of sexual organs. Chromosomal abnormalities are a whole different bag, and depending on the abnormality, may or may not result an anomaly of sexual organs, in most cases in a way that's still one sex or the other rather than intersex.

This is an interesting premise, but there are indeed some errors with the terminology, mostly with the word transgender itself.

Transgender is neither a sex, nor a gender; rather, a transgender person is someone whose gender is different from the one they were "assigned at birth" (AKA the one typically associated with person's sex, though there are exceptions with intersex people).

This means it shouldn't be in the lists of sexes and genders, as it currently is in several paragraphs like this one:

“Of course.” Celestia used her horn to grab and float the pending law in changeling rights. “Regarding that, Equestrian law equally supports all, male, female, transgender, nonbinary, and transgender.”

Instead, support for transgender individuals is evidenced by the fact that there is a distinction between sex and gender, and that the law allows changing one's gender.

I believe I have amended my errors, and I will not hesitate to correct further.

Dear Princess Celestia Twilight:
Today I learned that Intersex has nothing to do with gender. Which given the name is quite obvious in hindsight

I feel silly

Is this supposed to be satire?
Cause a preachy glitter bug bemoaning the 'plight' of an entire race of snowflakes seems like satire to me.

Edit:

“I think it’s about time I taught myself. I’ll need to establish a ‘Council of Equality for all Genders and Sexes and Identities and Orientations and Romanticisms of Any Manner Regardless of Totality in the Population’. Though, I will want to workshop that name…”

Kay, apparently I've overlooked the last paragraph.
Question answered.
Needs 'comedy' tag.
