What Is Intersex?

“The term intersex describes human beings who have naturally occurring differences of sex anatomy and whose biological sex cannot be classified as clearly male or female. An intersex person may have the biological attributes of both sexes or lack some of the biological attributes considered necessary to be defined as one or the other sex. Intersex is always congenital; the term is not applicable to situations where individuals deliberately alter their own anatomical characteristics. Intersex people are marginalized both in society and in law. Many human rights instruments fail to identify intersex people as rights holders, rather protecting “men” and “women”. Even where their rights are explicitly protected in law, intersex people are often unable to enforce those rights. They suffer from many forms of discrimination in all aspects of life, including their family life”  (“Equal Rights for Intersex Vol. 10”).
