Snopes.com still lists the claim that Jamie Lee Curtis was born with both male and sex organs as "undetermined". Their background on the issue contains the most offensive assessment of the intelligence of the average internet surfer ever:
Intersexuality is a reality; some children are ambiguously gendered at birth. However, one particular point needs to be made, and made quite vehemently: The existence of such medical conditions is not reason in itself to suppose that Jamie Lee Curtis has any of them. Using the one to bolster belief in the second is akin to claiming the existence of the Atlantic Ocean somehow proves a particular ship sank in it.
