Androgen was the Nebari term for an intersex child. Androgens were enormously discriminated against in the conformist Nebari society; frequently they were taken away at birth and killed. Those who were not immediately exterminated often ended up running away from Nebari Prime and joining a Nebari Resistance group; the only place where they were allowed to exist at all.
- Intersex is considered to be the same as hermaphroditic, but the former is considered the polite term. Dictionary.com defines it as: "An individual displaying sexual characteristics and/ or organs of both male and female; at birth an unambiguous assignment of male or female cannot be made."
