“Female, Male, Gap – The New Amendment Harms Mostly Intersexes” – Maedchenmannschaft 11.09.13

CEDAW #43 To End Forced Genital Surgeries Now!Zwischengeschlecht.org on Facebook>>> Article by Lea on the new German Intersex Law, banning intersex children from having a sex registered on their birth certificate, thus reinforcing the position of power of doctors imposing harmful cosmetic genital surgeries on newborns – deceivingly praised as an ‘option for third gender entry’ and ‘breaktrough’ by lazy navel-gazing online-reporters around the globe that couldn’t be bothered to ask persons concerned and their organsisations.

German feminist blog maedchenmannschaft.net sets the record straight, reporting the facts and interviewing Daniela “Nella” Truffer and Markus Bauer of Zwischengeschlecht.org (the other german speaking groups weren’t available for comment). English translation by Kirsty. Thanks!
