Genetic testing: LGBT vs. LGBTI (link)

OII Autralia addresses a tension between LGBT and LGBTI: For some time now, LGBT events, which are now increasingly often LGBTI events, have been sponsored by companies offering in vitro fertilization IVF). This often includes preimplanation genetic diagnosis – and the elimination of intersex traits, as several forms of intersexuality are treated as ‚genetic anomalies‘. As OII Australia put it:

We are aware that Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia and 5 alpha Reductase Deficiency are also subject to elimination via IVF and genetic testing.

Unlike sex selection, the elimination of intersex traits is entirely permissible and has a long history in Australia and other countries.
