Human Rights Watch E.D. Speaks Out Against Nonconsensual Intersex Surgeries!

The medical establishment has been aware of the intersex community’s desire for an end to nonconsensual medically unnecessary surgeries on intersex youth — aka Intersex Genital Mutilation (IGM) — for over two decades, but as history has shown, social change rarely comes without support from allies. Big thanks to Human Rights Watch​ E.D. Graeme Reid for speaking out against IGM in the excellent article, “Doctors Should Stop Defining Sexual ‘Normality,’
which voices activists long held views, and for highlighting Pidge Pagonis​’s awesome Intersex Awareness Day 2017 intersex protest at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago!
