We must make people aware of all the victims who suffered these unnecessary surgeries, the victims of societal rejection who took their lives because of isolation and despair, as well as those who never had the opportunity to live the lives they were born to live.
Barbin was assigned female at birth, but she never felt like she quite fit in with the other girls at school. She was awkward, and not at all graceful or feminine looking like her friends. At puberty, she did not begin to menstruate, her breasts never developed, and some fine, facial hair appeared on her chin and cheeks.
It’s time that doctors stop playing god with Intersex children, and time for society to stop trying to fit them into a box where they don’t belong. There is nothing wrong with these children. They do not need to be fixed.
