I’m quoted today from my recent letter in The NY Times in this KICK-ASS article by Katrina Karkazis (author of Fixing Sex) and Rebecca Jordan-Young, about the Olympics discriminatory policy toward intersex women. yay! 🙂

“In a letter to The New York Times, Viloria pointed out that meeting participants discussed other physical and medical differences that might give athletes competitive advantages, but that are unregulated. Viloria writes:

‘The IOC’s response was that other differences do not call the athletes’ status as male or female into question. The real issue is not fairness, but that certain athletes are not accepted as real women because of their appearance.'”

Interesting fact: At approx. 1.7% of the population, Intersex people are as common as red-heads. “Everyone’s met an intersex person, you just may not know you have.”
