Darla Baker (as Thalia Chase) and KA Moll (as Zane Winslow) get together to discuss issues of the heart, the head and society in this 'agony aunt' style show.
In this episode they talk about intersex individuals.
With all the discussion about who belongs in what bathroom, one group of individuals is rarely mentioned.
An estimated 1 in 1500 to 1 in 2000 babies are born intersex. Intersex is not a new phenomenon. It has been around since at least the beginning of recorded human history.
Throughout history, the treatment protocol has been deplorable, often disfiguring children through untimely surgeries and leaving their gender identity in the hands of nature vs nurture, where nature usually wins and may not agree with the assignment chose at birth.
