This is false. There are a wide variety of naturally-occurring intersex conditions that cannot be classified as either female (XX) or male (XY). Some intersex people are born with XO, XXY, XYY, and other chromosomal configurations that differ from the (XX = female) and (XY = male) binary that is imposed to regulate social interactions. Many intersex people receive involuntary "corrective" surgeries early in life because of how threatening non-binary sex is for Western society. Here's some more information in case you're interested in learning more about this:

Also, being male is not the same as being a man, and being female is not the same as being a woman. If these were the same, then we would hear commands like "Male up!" and "Be female!" instead of "Man up!" and "Be ladylike!" Gender is an ongoing behavioral accomplishment, not an inherent fact that is discovered with an ultrasound--unless, of course, you believe that being a man means acting like a dick, which, given the patronizing tone of your writing, seems to be the case.

Lastly, this article is a great example of how it is a misnomer to refer to "the LGBTQ community" as a monolith, for it is clear that we all do not get along with each other because we are so caught up in identity politics. I and my transfeminine community are consistently treated the worst by cisgender white gays--especially when we dare wear makeup with facial hair. It is as though we disturb others--especially those who desire us--by showing through our mere existence that it is not necessary to sacrifice half of your human potential to strict adherence to binary gender norms. As my partner says, "I'm not a man or a woman--I'm an experience."
