An Intersex condition is an incongruence between a person’s outward appearance and their genitals, hormones, chromosomes or internal reproductive anatomy.
More often than not these conditions are not unhealthy and represent little medical risk. Yet throughout history doctors have been performing invasive and traumatic corrective treatments on Intersex patients because their bodies don't adhere to a rigid definition of normal.
Currently, Cornell doctors are performing clitoral reduction surgeries on girls with ambiguous genitalia even though there is no medical risk. It's the same old story, and it's time the rights of Intersex individuals were recognized.
