Anne Fausto-Sterling

Anne Fausto-Sterling is the Professor of Biology and Women's Studies at Brown University.

She once claimed, in a paper entitled "The Five Sexes", that there were five sexes: male, female, merm, ferm and herm. Advocates for intersexual people stated that this theory was wrong, confusing and unhelpful to the interests of intersexual people.

She has since stated that she no longer advocates it.
