    I believe we are all born somewhat intersex genetically speaking - some traits will be corporal and other only mental. In the extremes, there are males and females and in the middle, there are other configurations. Its normal that there are men/women that would be considered, physically, intersex that like regular, dominant male submissive female sex, and there are very feminine/masculine looking people that not only are only attracted to their same sex, but also feel being the opposite gender and even more incridibly, there are people that feel the other gender, sometimes transition but still, like the opposite gender too. Thinking that all those people are lying to themselves, influenced by hyped thoughts or to open societies and that them all would be cisgenders if raised in a society that only incentivised heterossexuality for me sounds just stupid. Also, believing that their interssexuality is comparable to a strange or even condenmnable fetiche is either a true lack of knowledge, respect or fear: the fear that their own, not accepted sometimes even by themselves interssexuality might want to come to light and somehow harm them - their heterossexual egos or societal image. In other words, they either don't know what they are talking about because they are too heterossexual (and too less empathetic) and can't find a parallel in themselves for interssexuality besides bizarreness or they fear the thought that they are, also, interssex.

    No one cares...they are backward with that crap! And we don't need to copy it. Any other practice they have, that good is ok to admire and learn.

    Congratulations, You impacted them as a market, and force inflation to end their independent living and cause a wide Gap in development of humanity. You put them in jeopardy, because you want to sell your clothes and force their woman under your Actions of cooperation, proposals, etc. You wanted to mate with Indonesia and you found out they have a culture different from yours, food, shelter, clothing's, attitude. You have a different body really all humans, Now you are a dominant female species, they will out mate you. Create more children than you, they earth will flavor, favour them through nutrient and when you change their nutrient they will change yours too, you can nevermind, for than, as the food may be for increase in height or reducing weight. You experience, and reports so other can learn, why they can or can't go that way.
