OII wishes to thank Dr. Milton Diamond for his brilliant contribution to the debate surrounding the new terminology that was elaborated by the Chicago Consensus Statement, DSD or Disorders of Sex Development. Dr. Diamond has suggested that Variations of Sex Development would be a better term and most members of OII agree because it is more accurate and NOT STIGMATIZING.
We applaud the courage and thoughtfulness that Dr. Diamond has brought to the discourse concerning the new terminology.
We encourage all organisations to consider his proposal and to realise that this could be the ONE proposal which could help mend the serious rifts that this new terminology has caused within the intersex movement.
