“The UN’s new fact sheet provides a poignant summary of various intersex human rights violations and makes a straightforward call for action, including outlawing all medically unnecessary procedures on intersex children and ensuring families and children receive adequate counseling and peer support. I have no doubt that if parents were presented with this fact sheet and thus realized that the United Nations recognizes cosmetic genital surgery as medical torture, that the number of such surgeries would rapidly decline! Furthermore, doctors can no longer reasonably ignore what activists have been saying for two decades. It’s time for this insanity to stop.” – Kimberly Zieselman
