"Hermaphrodite" is not a very accurate term, either; it implies that the person has full, functioning male and female genitalia. That is almost never the case; usually, the person will exhibit a complex of characteristics, often with one set of traits mostly dominant. "Intersexed" is the preferred term; it doesn't have the baggage other terms do.

*************** Gary Jenning's RAPTOR features a hermaphrodite protagonist. A fine hardboiled epic of the Gothic conquest of Rome.
