Intersex has occurred for generations, but most never knew that our trusted physicians would unilaterally make a decision for an infant and perform surgery (some would say mutilation) to assign a gender the doctor felt was best - all without consulting or advising the parents before the surgery was performed. History has shown that the doctors' choice has, on most cases, not been good for the child. Today more parents are being proactive and not letting doctors make that choice for their child. It’s important that doctors be required to give parents the choice!
