>>> Campaign against corrective surgery on children born with indeterminate genitalia argues that children should be allowed to grow up untouched

Doctors 'playing God with children's sex' Daniela Truffer protesting outside Bern University Hospital It's a boy! It's a girl! But what happens when life doesn't fit in with greeting cards and the defining moment of childbirth becomes a bewildering puzzle? Swiss intersex activist Daniela Truffer is spearheading a campaign to stop genital surgery and hormone treatment on children born with indeterminate sexual organs. Truffer argues that affected individuals should be given the time to grow up and decide for themselves whether they wish to become male or female or remain in-between. 'Forced surgery can not be the answer,' she said, quoting medical studies that reveal poor outcomes and show that most patients suffer a lifetime of frustration and regret. 'These surgeries are painful and irreversible and most likely to reduce or remove sexual feeling. Non-consented cosmetic surgeries violate the right to physical integrity and self-determination. It's a human rights issue,' Truffer told swissinfo.ch. (continued)

Thanks for this work. The level of extermination of intersex people in the developing world is greater and more horrendous than reported. At SIPD, we are launching a vibrant media campaign against silence, stigma in Uganda and corrective surgery of infants.

I applaud the work you are all doing and the open letter sent to participants in the symposium in Lübeck. It is appalling to hear of the continued disgraceful behavior of the medical profession and their mutilation of children's bodies. Unless there is a threat to a persons immediate health, there should be no intervention or surgery until a person is old enough to decide for themselves.

These actions and attitudes permeate through all areas of life and it is time those attitudes changed and that our world learns to accept and embrace diversity. That is what makes up our amazing human race.

Keep up the great work.
