What’s the problem?
- Bodily integrity, and eliminating harmful methods
- Eugenics, prenatal testing and eradication
- Discrimination, combatting discrimination and stigma
- Recognition papers, intercourse and sex
Individuals born with variants of sex traits experience stigmatisation, discrimination, bullying, body shaming as well as other types of damage due to our intercourse traits, and in addition as a result of presumptions about our identities. These violate our legal rights, and restrict our involvement in culture.
Harms related to assumptions about our identities can arise from assumptions that people have nonbinary sex identification, or we are feminine or male, that individuals aren’t feminine or male sufficient, we are queer, that people are heterosexual, or that being intersex means our company is old sufficient to easily show an identification.
