Stop forced medical interventions on intersex children
Today is Intersex awareness day.

We stand together against unnecessary and harmful medical practices. For Intersex rights.

Intersex; we who are born with bodies that are considered not typically male or female.

People with intersex traits are subjected to forced medical interventions from early ages, so called “normalizing” surgeries/hormonal treatments. Share this post to show your solidarity with the intersex community and to show that you support intersex rights, as the right to informed consent before medical interventions.
