What about chromosomal anomalies? XXY XXX, XXXX, etc? How about XX with male genitalia? Chromosomal anomalies pared with ambiguous genitalia means intersex, aka in between sexes, though they are not exclusive. There is a big spectrum of ambiguity in the sexes and everyone in that spectrum deserves respect and the CHOICE to choose which gender (or none, or their own) to identify with. Doctors used to chop off girl’s clitoris’s because they were too big and resembled penises. They used to give full hysterectomies to babies who had “passable” looking male genitalia. This law gives babies who are intersexed the ability choose their own gender when they grow up, not as a baby when gender is a complete blank.
Nor is it defined by genetics. There are numerous anomalies out there including XXX, XXY, etc. You can even have XX chromosomes and have male genitalia. Gender is not just male and female even on a genetic level. Intersexed people can have any number of ambiguity in their genitalia including full on hermaphrodite. Get out of your box and actually look up the things you’re arguing about.
Damn you. I moved from NJ to MO 3 years ago and now all I want in my life is a WaWa sub. Damn you again.
I just had my baby at this hospital on 12-7-12 and I have nothing but good things to say about the doctors and nurses. I don’t think Mercy will want to keep these individuals; it taints their otherwise steller staff.
melanyw I am really boring.
