In brief: A man

Xxy is shorthand for the arrangement of chromosomes in klinefelter syndrome.
These men are generally well - they have all of their man parts - but can have trouble making testosterone and usually are infertile. There was an argentinian film in 2007 entitled "xxy" about a person with both male and female anatomy - intersex. That might confuse folks. Klinefelter men are physically ... Well ... Men!
