1 in every 2,000 births is intersex and it's more than that if you take into account elements that are not readily noticeable to the eye because they relate to hormones, etc. How exactly are all of those people supposed to have surgery without someone assigning a gender? If a baby has both testes and a vulva, is it a boy or a girl? Which "surgery" should it have? And how will they operate on a baby's genes, endocrine system, etc.? I really can't stand this type of uneducated, anti-scientific nonsense, and particularly not when it is used in the cause of hate.
