What do christians make of intersex, pregnant male seahorses, sex changes in fish etc?

eg many fish are intersex & some undergo full sex changes in nature.  Male seahorse gets pregnant & gives birth.


Humans can be intersex.


what do christians (& other religionists) make of this? 


A few opinions I found out there were than intersex individuals were a defect caused by sin & they shouldn't breed & that transexuals are an 'abomination' etc.   How can they justify this view if nature undergoes sex changes, can be asexual, intersex etc?

Thanks for the link! I'm checking it out now.
Ok, yes. We learned about this condition in Genetics. I know about this. Thanks!
I don't think most Christians are aware of this and the ones that are just ignore it.
Have you asked any theists what they think about this?
Theists ignore a lot of scientific evidence-- like for example evolution. Some theists believe that the devil put dinosaur bones on earth to confuse people about evolution. (they explain away the evidence with weird beliefs). So maybe they have a weird belief to explain sex changes in nature.
So, God mad people intersex?  He couldn't make up his mind?

Very Simple Answer: They Don't Care!!!

Insofar as most christians are concerned, humankind is apart and separate from the rest of creation, created in the image of their homophobic, mega-violent and paternalistic deity, and the bible is THE basis for normalcy and the ultimate guide to life-living.  Homosexuality may occur in hundreds or thousands of OTHER species, but for homo sapiens, sexuality must be fixed and invariant ... because that's a nice, simple answer and it's in agreement with their holy book.

Note that these are the same people who deny climate change and evolution.  They know what they believe and cannot be bothered with facts.

That's right Loren, they don't care. They ignore the facts.
As I understand it, dolphins also indulge in recreational sex ... NAUGHTY DOLPHINS!!!
You're right. Loren.  That's why they don't seem to give a hoot when thousands of species are killed off from off shore drilling and other environmentally destructive practices.
Accept for when a mistake is made and "Johnnie" turns out to be "Jessica"
