Should doctors operate on intersex babies?

Postby Ready-for-the-worse » Tue Aug 11, 2015 5:44 am

M.C. was born with ambiguous genitalia, a rare condition that doctors addressed with surgery. Now, in a landmark lawsuit, M.C.’s parents are challenging the medical mainstream: Why does a surgeon decide what sex a child should be?

I don't understand the controversy about the intersex people. That's the result of the tolerance sickness in the society. A surgeon has a right to decide the future sex for an intersex baby cause he knows science. Moreover he can do several tests to know for sure whether the chromosome set of the baby is XXY or XXX (is it genetically male or female)
I still don't understand why do people ignore the nature and accept transsexualism. If a person has penis he's a man, vagina - a woman. Otherwise he's insane.
I hope you agree with me!

Checked the article out of curiousity. The baby's adoptive parents are filing the suit. I thought that surely this would not be done without consent and indeed, it is not done without consent.

I hope I'm wrong, but it seems from the article that this may be a case of people looking for a fight and putting this poor child in the middle of it.

HE was a "heterosexual" man. Definitely. Honestly I don't believe he "felt" some need to be a woman. How can a man have a desire to become a lesbian woman? That's absurd.
I believe the only reason he did this transformation was to attract more attention to the Jenner-Kardashian family.

Is it that absurd? If a man is going to become a woman I say lesbian woman is the better deal for a number of reasons.

If you like your haircut, you can keep your haircut.

You can show up to watch football with the guys and they'll treat you like everyone else, instead of explaining a touchback to you like you're a developmentally challenged 5 year old.

When lesbians get ridiculously drunk everyone thinks they're fun, life-of-the-party types. Straight girl at the bar/party gets ridiculously drunk, everyone is on defcon 5 trying to make her sit down and drink water. No fun.

If you're chatting it up with a woman somewhere and her husband/boyfriend shows up, it's still worth a shot . Straight girl will get herself strangled if she thinks it's still worth a shot with a guy whose girlfriend has just showed up.

You can watch sports like a man and drink like a man and keep your wardrobe/grooming simple and easy like a man and those are some really nice guy things that straight girls don't have. The main thing you would be giving up (if you want to go full transition via surgery) is your penis. And that's definitely not something you should take lightly. But lesbian sex seems pretty cool. It's definitely one of the first things I would want to try as a lesbian woman.

That said, the doctor wouldn't really do a surgery that makes you a lesbian woman. The surgery along with hormone therapy, will change your body from a man's to a woman's. You are still you, so if you were a straight man, you'd be a lesbian woman. If you were a gay man, you'd be a straight woman.

Wonder why they want even more people to know they are a dysfunctional bunch?

Probably for the same reason that you feel the need to expose your hatred of biology to as many people as possible.
