● Until society at large becomes educated on intersex biological variations, those born intersex, will continue to be regarded as an anathema within their communities.

  • Now it’s your turn, on a sheet of paper, or in the comment section below, write a sentence using the word: anathema.
  • Tip : Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing, the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word.
