‘Intersex and VENUS Clinic for Vaginal Inadequacy’ of Wisconsin – Anthony Balcom, Intersex Genital Mutilator of the Week (1)

Zwischengeschlecht.org on Facebook

STOP Genital Mutilation in Children's Clinics!Anthony Balcom, MD, Assistant Prof Ped Uro Perv
@ Children’s Hospital & Medical College Wisconsin,
Professional Interests’: ‘Hypospadias Repair’, ‘Vaginoplasty reconstructive procedures’, can’t even spell out ‘DSD’, professional member of the ‘American College of Surgeons’, which itself is member of the ‘World Federation of Associations of Pedo Mutilators (WOFAPS)’ meeting next week in Berlin. YUCK!

‘Another new program recently started by Pediatric Urology is the Vaginal Enhancement in Unique Situations, or VENUS Clinic for vaginal inadequacy. There are many different diagnoses that can result in vaginal inadequacy, such as Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser Syndrome and cloacal anomaly/exstrophy situations, to mention a few. There is also multidisciplinary representation in this clinic, including Pediatric Gynecology. These patients can present as neonates or as older adolescents. […] Our goal is to treat patients with vaginal inadequacy in a very sensitive, individualized, age-appropriate, patient-directed manner. […] The patients treated in the newly formed Disorders of Sexual Differentiation Clinic […] may [ultimately] also need the expertise of the new VENUS Clinic.’

CALL FOR ACTION! Digging the Dirt on local & regional Intersex Genital Mutilators – exposing the ‘4th World Congress of Pedo Surgeons’, Berlin October 13-19

Zwischengeschlecht.org on Facebook Dear fellow campaigners, friends, and allies

Perpetrators of Intersex Genital Mutilations from more than 84 (!!!) countries all over the globe will gather in Berlin, looking to increase their business – that is the ones actually wielding the scalpels!  (See wofaps2013.com for details + programme)

‘Hypospadias repair’ and ‘DSD’ are once again part of the programme of the ‘4th World Congress’ – human rights, ethics, and persons concerned aren’t – so far, same old.

In addition to the usual Peaceful Intersex Protests in front of the mutilators’ conference  (+ the upcoming call to sign the Open Letter), we CALL FOR YOUR HELP to expose the intersex surgeons, and make it stick, by digging up and collecting some of the evidence available online e.g. on paediatric university clinics’ listed treatments and related info, in publications by members of their staff, and then cross-referencing to the WOFAPS programme and regional member association.  

–> Please find a compiled list of WOFAPS member associations. Practical tip for investigations: Wherever there is a major regional (pedo) clinic with dedicated pedo endo and pedo surgeons / urologists / gynaecologists et al. departments, a relevant collection of dirt on the 3 most common surgeries – ‘hypospadias repair’, ‘clitoral reduction’ +/-  ‘vaginoplasty’, and castration – should be hit pretty soon in the pedo surgeons’ department, as well as for other relevant surgeries / treatments. Then cross-referencing these findings to the WOFAPS association member list and conference programme should match representation/involvement at/with the conference/WOFAPS.

We ask people to publish their collected evidence online (if possible), stating the specific surgeries / treatments evidenced, plus relevant quote(s) + source(s), so we can refer to this publication in the open letter when listing current practices. However, it’s also cool to just email us your findings (your details can also be withheld on request).

Zwischengeschlecht.org will be able to cover the following WOFAPS members:
– Germany, 3 dedicated clinics, all procedures, direct links to DSD content of conference
– Argentina, dedicated clinic, global dissemination of mutilations at least since 1925 until today, represented at conference
– On John Gearhart (USA) we’ll find some dirt soon enough, direct link to hypospadias content of conference

We already did receive dirt on (Thanks!):
Dix Poppas (NYC, USA)

Time is of essence! Please consider to find some time during the next week to investigate and document some of your local/regional clinics and doctors perpetrating medically not necessary, cosmetic genital surgeries on intersex/’DSD’ children – because, until they know they’re being monitored and start feeling the pressure, they won’t stop!

Kind regards

Daniela “Nella” Truffer, Markus Bauer
Founding members human rights group Zwischengeschlecht.org

PS: As always, we’re generally inviting comments / additions / corrections also regarding the template parts of the Open Letter. We’re hoping to have a draft available and be asking for signatures within a week – watch out!

Zwischengeschlecht.org on Facebook‘The risk of malignant change is not as great as has been suggested. […] Castration upsets a state of biological equilibrium that has been built over a long period of time. Since most of these patients have normally or even very well developped […] sexual feelings, it is very difficult to restore this ideal state by replacement therapy.’

Prof. Dr. John Gearhart (‘WOFAPS 2013′, ’25th ESPU 2014’) on Orgasmic Function after Intersex Clitoris Amputations: ‘Adequate intercourse was defined as successful vaginal penetration’

Cheryl Chase, Founder of ISNA and “Hermaphrodites With Attitude”, on a familiar Intersex Genital Mutilators’ ruse:

Cheryl Chase: 'Hermaphrodites With Attitude' (1997)

»Notice how John Gearhart, a noted specialist in genital surgery for intersex children, evades questioning about orgasmic function following the presentation of his paper on additional surgeries for repair of vaginas surgically constructed in intersex infants. ([…] the discussion was published in the Journal of Urology along with the paper.)

Dr. Frank: How do you define successful intercourse? How many of these girls actually have an orgasm, for example? How many of these had a clitorectomy [clitoris amputation], how many a clitoroplasty, and did it make any difference to orgasm?

Dr. Gearhart: Interviews with the families were performed by a female pediatric surgeon who is kind and caring, and who I think got the maximum information from these patients. Adequate intercourse was defined as successful vaginal penetration…. (Bailez et al., 1992, p. 684)«

>>> Mutilation Wholesale: Why we are targetting the ‘9th Joint Meeting’ 2013

Intersex Genital Mutilations: No Reckoning, No ReconciliationProf. Dr. Lawson Wilkins, the ‘inventor’ of systematic early cosmetic surgeries on children born with ‘atypical’ sex anatomies, and name patron of today’s North American ‘[Lawson Wilkins] Pediatric Endocrine Society ([LW]PES)’, contributed a foreword to the 1958 revised edition of Hugh Hampton Young’s ‘classic’ intersex genital mutilators’ bible:

Zwischengeschlecht.org on Facebook [ click to enlarge ] Lawson Wilkins’ foreword to the 1958 edition, referring to Hugh Hampton Young’s 1937 ‘classic’  1st edition, and boasting of corrective procedures and exploratory laparotomies on large numbers of patients studied in the gynecologic, urologic and pediatric endocrine clinic at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.’

The most common ‘corrective surgical procedure’ until the 1980s was cosmetic amputation of ‘enlarged clitorises’ on children, as featured in the 1958 edition on p 278-79 (and unchanged also in the 1971 3rd edition on p 340-41)

STOP Intersex Genital Mutilation!Zwischengeschlecht.org on FacebookIntersex Genital Mutilations is a global business, and the perpetrators are well organised in ‘subspecialities’ and ‘working groups’ within regular ‘western’ medical associations all over the world.

The ‘Global Intersex Mutilators’ Cartel’ consists not only of different medical branches, eg. paediatric surgeons/urologists/gynaecologists, paediatric endocrinologists, paediatric psychiatrists/psychologists, geneticists, sexologists, but as well of (backing) states, politicians, health care providers, etc.

Protest #1, 07.06.2013, Wilson Medical School
(‘DSD Training Workshop for Young Investigators’), @10.31 am

STOP Genital Mutilation in Children's Clinics!Zwischengeschlecht.org on FacebookFirst, we’d like to thank everyone again who signed the Open Letter to the ‘4th I-DSD Symposium’, helped spreading the word or otherwise lent their support!

As always, during the protests we had honest and good conversations with people and parents concerned, other participants of various fields (even doctors), and many passers-by.

And once more we were delighted that also within the conference people called the perpetrators on their bullshit, and that this was reinforced by our peaceful protests outside and vice versa.

Protest #2, 07.06.2013, Sir Charles Wilson Building
(Venue ‘4th I-DSD Symposium’), @1.13 pm

Needless to say, also at the ‘4th I-DSD Symposium’ both forms of objection to the inveterate mutilators were sorely needed. Despite one doctor, who, after realising the presence of persons concerned, quickly tidied up his presentation (i.e. silently taking out the “bloody slides” to make it more palatable, though of course without changing its tenor), many were shamelessly advocating medically not necessary surgeries on defenceless children, proving once more such conferences are anything else than a safe place for persons concerned.

Protest #2, 07.06.2013, Sir Charles Wilson Building, @ 1.16pm: Opening of the ‘4th I-DSD Symposium’ (Centre: Prof Dr Olaf Hiort, Team Leader ‘EuroDSD’ and ‘DSDnet’).

Just two examples from Paediatric University Clinics represented at the the ‘4th Symposium’ to illustrate why countering the mutilators was important:

  • University Children’s Clinic Sao Paulo, Brazil: Paediatric endocrinologist Prof Dr Berenice Mendonca (also mentioned in the Open Letter to the ‘4th I-DSD Symposium’ (PDF), and soon to be again prominently featured at the upcoming Global Intersex Mutilators’ Conference ‘9th Joint Meeting of Paediatric Endocrinology’ in September) made several deeply unsettling remarks during her presentation and the discussions, and continued unfazed despite disturbed reactions by persons concerned.

Protest #3, 07.06.2013, University of Glasgow, Main Gate
(‘Guest Lecture’ and ‘I-DSD Steering Committee Meeting’), @5.37 pm

  • University Children’s Clinic Ulm, Germany: Peaediatric surgeon Dr Gabriele Jergl-Corkin, boasted referring to collegue and co-contributor Dr Clothilde Leriche: ‘Over a 27 year period our specialized pediatric surgeon has operated over 600 children with CAH, performing clitoris reductions, vaginoplasties and reconstructions of the labia.’  (see ‘I-DSD Proceedings’ (PDF, p 25)

Protest #5, 08.06.2013, Royal Hospital for Sick Children – Yorkhill
(Homebase ‘I-DSD’ and ‘Scottish DSD Network’), @2.03 pm

Protest #5, 08.06.2013, Royal Hospital for Sick Children – Yorkhill, @12.13 pm:
Police writing up the details of all protesters after complaints from within Yorkhill.
(We got off scot-free in the end.)

  • Dr Clothidle Leriche (University Children’s Clinic Ulm, Germany) boasting in front of ‘CAH parents’ last fall, then ‘only’ counted ‘500 CAH girls operated on’, as well as ‘170 other children’ (again including ‘feminising procedures’ only), as Zwischengeschlecht.org revealed earlier this year (report in German). (Obviously, ‘masculinising’ genital surgeries, e.g. ‘Hypospadias Repairs’ were not included in this gruesome statistic at all …)

Protest #6, 08.06.2013, Sir Charles Wilson Building, @4.41 pm:
‘We demand: Comprehensive Information against Manipulation!’ 
Katrin Ann Kunze † at the 1st ‘Zwitter Demo’, State Court Cologne, 12.12.2007

  • The resulting figure of at the very least 900 children submitted to genital surgeries (as admitted by the University Children’s Clinic Ulm, Germany themselves) becomes even more unsettling when considering that their “specialized pediatric surgeon” Dr Clothilde Leriche favours “genital corrections between 9–12 months”, as Zwischengeschlecht.org revealed (in German).

Protest #6, 08.06.2013, Sir Charles Wilson Building, @4.09 pm
(Centre:  Prof. Dr. Inas Mazen (‘D$D-Life’, Cairo, Egypt)

  • Grand Total of these at least 900 children ‘feminized’ by medically not necessary, cosmetic genital surgeries admitted by the University Children’s Clinic Ulm, Germany themselves: With German hospital records leaked by Zwischengeschlecht.org in 2010 documenting a staggering profit for the hospital of Euro 8175,12 per pedo-vaginoplasty, at least 900 children sum up to 7.3 Millionen Euros + (or at the very least € 7’357’608.–).

Protest #7, 09.06.2013, Sir Charles Wilson Building, @10.06 am

All the more important that the mutilators continue feeling the pressure wherever they gather to promote their atrocities!
