    She's 7 and was born intersex.

    She's 7 and was born intersex. Why her parents elected to let her grow up without surgical intervention

    Seven-year-old Rosie Lohman loves arts and crafts (especially any involving glitter), currently wants to be a DJ when she grows up, and happens to have been born intersex.

    Intersex is an umbrella term used to describe people born with bodies that are perceived as differing from typical "male" and "female" categories.
    She had two X chromosomes, so doctors considered her female, but she had external anatomy that appeared more traditionally male.
    "It was me who noticed," her father, Eric Lohman, said. "The nurse picked her up and showed her to us and I saw her body right away and noticed that she had what looked like a small penis."
    "I knew that surgeries were common for intersex kids, but I didn't really understand how it would work," Eric said. "And so, my fear at the time was that they were going to take Rosie out of the room, and they were going to suggest doing the surgery" right away.
    Rosie's mother, Stephani Lohman, said she felt extremely pressured by the surgeons to consent to surgery even after she voiced her concerns about the procedure, including the evidence that these surgeries can have devastating side effects including a loss of sexual function, psychological trauma and life-long pain.

    That was wrong for them to pressure them. Circumcision and intersex surgeries should be illegal. I have read testimonies from intersex adults and some of them wish their parents didn't consent to the surgeries because they felt more of the opposite sex than the doctors and parents decided.

    Their gender identities and bodies should be left intact until they're old enough to make decisions.

    Do you mean illegal period, or illegal to do on minors, or at least till they can show informed consent?

    My leaving the conversation does not indicate you won. It means that real life took priority, or I have just tired of your idiocy.

    Would you be willing to allow a mid to late teen if they can demonstrate informed consent?

    Personally, I'm rather thankful my parents opted for circumcision before I was old enough to remember it. I know guys who have had it done later in live and it's....unpleasant.

    This would be more convincing if you also opposed "gender transitioning" for minors.

    Don't bring that here. Keep that to the other thread.

    Re: She's 7 and was born intersex.

    Most intersex people are what used to be called "pseudo-hermaphrodites". They objectively belong to one sex or the other, but are deformed. A rarer condition is "true hermaphroditism", which is a type of chimerism in which a person has two sets of DNA (with opposite biological sex) and consequently has two sets of genitalia.

    It may make sense to ban cosmetic surgery for true hermaphrodite children, since their sex may be legitimately ambiguous. But with modern genetic science, I don't see the issue in other cases, as long as the surgical intervention follows biological reality.

    Some children are born with anatomical genitalia that is non-conforming to tradition male/female genitalia. Years ago, these children were assigned a gender for their entire lives by the doctor who delivered them. The mythological term “hermaphrodite” implies that a person is both fully male and fully female. This is a physiologic impossibility. Now with genetic testing, sex can finally be confirmed and children's identity is firmly established as to their natural sex. Usually an elongated clitoris can be mistaken for a penis and gender assigned as 'male' when in fact the child has two 'X' chromosomes designating them anatomically female. The exterior sexual characteristics can't be used to determine the true biological sex of an infant.

    It makes more senses psychologically to wait until this girl decides for herself whether to have the corrective surgery or not.
