Dreger and Eugenics - The redefining of intersex as a genetic birth defect
Please note: We in the intersex community are not particularly focused on who is right or wrong about Bailey's theories on transsexualism. We are concerned about Dreger's support of a man who has supported eugenics of gay people and who is now focusing his attention on intersex people, supposedly the group of people she says she supports. If she really supports us, why has she not listened to many of us for so many years? Why would she choose to listen to someone like Bailey over us and then collaborate with him in the redefinition of intersex as a genetic birth defect? What is her agenda? It is not my agenda, that is for sure. Click on the red button above to see the type of people she is defending and all the while working to further pathologize us in the intersex community and put us in the very category they are working to eliminate from the gene pool.

[MA, USA] [Letters to the Editor]
A Doctor's Impact
Excerpt: Transgender and transsexual issues aren't discussed enough, and in today's diverse world, it is important to bring such matters to the surface. I have two friends who are transitioning, and I am trying to gain some kind of perspective on their reasons for doing so without causing them embarrassment or pain.
