We oppose all consensus statements, especially those without representation of intersex people as equal stakeholders in the consensus.
We have no desire for any consensus statement because intersex people do not agree on:
- the exact definition of intersex
- what treatments are appropriate for all intersex people
- what gender assignment, if any, is appropriate for all the different intersex variations
- pathological definitions of our bodies and identities
Consensus statements imply that there is consent. We dissent!
