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?

Found a few views by the fundies on intersex marriage:

of course, they just say that anything that doesn't fit their narrow worldview is because of a 'fallen world' (ie adam & eve's sin)

 

here's a good article about the damage religion does

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"

here's a post I wrote about labels & stigma
