However, there are no reports of true human hermaphrodites. 

Omid guess ther is some word confusion because omid never know any thing like "hermaphrodites".
all I've noticed is that human've this kind of condition they call it Gay may be not ver sure :-\

Okay - lets get back to the core of the question...

DiscoverDave is quite right, Eunuch is a word we use to refer to castrated males, rather than people born who are born with no definable gender.

As I understand it, a very small proportion of people are born with "ambiguous genitalia", but are genetically male or female, exactly as DiscoverDave said.  This could be caused by genetic abnormalities in sperm/eggs, or something occuring during development.

Hopefully, someone here will know more about development/genetics and be able to give a less woolly answer!

This does not stop people from living a full and happy life, and becoming successful in their chosen career.  There are rumours at the moment that a high profile pop star may be intersexual, so this may bring the issue into the light for discussion and, hopefully, more public understanding and acceptance.

Moving on..

Sexuality is a different issue.  Some people are gay, some straight others bisexual - we don't yet understand all the reasons why.  Again, this has no bearing on how happy/successful someone will be in life - even until relatively recently a man could be jailed for acting on an attraction to another man, but luckily we're now a more understanding and less draconian society.

There have been eunuch pop singers: the castrati.

Listening to the results I'm not sure it was worth the sacrifice ... http://www.archive.org/details/AlessandroMoreschi  [xx(]
