“If you ask experts at medical centers how often a child is born so noticeably atypical in terms of genitalia that a specialist in sex differentiation is called in, the number comes out to about 1 in 1500 to 1 in 2000 births. But a lot more people than that are born with subtler forms of sex anatomy variations, some of which won’t show up until later in life.”
If being born intersex is that common, why on earth wouldn’t there be signficant other types of variation in gender and sex? Thanks for writing about this so sensitively and well! It’s just not a binary world and people need to keep being exposed to that idea until it sticks.
