It is rare indeed for the mainstream media to write about intersex in anything other than terms that echo the current orthodox medical protocols. It is therefore very welcome to read a published article in The Guardian questioning the application of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis for intersex variations. This happens in the UK. The HFEA lists the all known intersex variations as a legitimate reason for requesting PGD.
In case anyone needed reminding, Intersex is not an illness, nor is it a disability. The struggles that intersex people endure and encounter during their lives are most often the consequence of other people’s lack of understanding, or prejudice.
