“I feel compelled to let the public know that you can grow up intersex and be perfectly fine and happy,” said Hida Viloria, the executive director of the U.S. affiliate of Organization Intersex International. “It’s not as hard being intersex as everyone assumes it will be — at least that’s my belief.”
I’m very happy to share the sentiment of intersex pride in the fantastic Buzzfeed article, “Born in Between: When A Newborn’s Sex is in Question, Why Do Doctors Get to Decide?“, by Azeen Ghorayshi. The article covers the Crawford’s lawsuit against the doctors that operated on their intersex son M.C., and questions the practice of nonconsensual surgeries on intersex children, aka Intersex Genital Mutilation. Please share widely to educate on this issue!
