This week’s DSDvoices is from the parent of a child with mixed gonadal dysgenesis, one of the most rare and complex intersex conditions. I think it’s probably one of the most important stories I have ever shared. As I often say, no one expects an intersex baby. Sharing the stories and perspectives of parents who are faced with the complex decisions associated with the birth of a baby with ambiguous genitalia, hopefully, will help future parents who also walk that path, by letting them know they are not on their own.
This feels particularly timely in light of this recent, important article, from a urologist who works with DSD patients, which looks at the impact trans activism is having on our understanding of intersex conditions and medical protocols for treating them. Please read and share both as widely as you can.
