Around the bloggosphere
Is it me overlooking more than I used to do? or is there indeed relatively little on intersex in the bloggosphere? In any case, here’s what I found recently and happily recommend to anyone intererest in the past and present of inter*:
- The LA Review of Books has an article on intersex, and more specifically on ISNA: https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/ending-the-intersex-exception-the-battle-for-informed-consent-for-people-born-with-atypical-sex-characteristics/#!
- Lianne Simons from “Intersex and Faith” has sent questionnaires to signatories of the so-called “Nashville Statement”, which contains inter alia a passage on intersex as disorder, and was co-written by a theologian who seems to support assinging gender to inter children “regardless of the apperance of the genitals or other secondary sex characteristics“. Have a look here for her post, the questionaire and the quote: http://www.liannesimon.com/2017/10/05/barren-women-and-the-nashville-statement/
- The German Supreme Court ruling, published (significantly perhaps) on 8 November last year, continues to attract comment and interpretation. For a short reminder (in English) what is was about, look here: https://intersex.hypotheses.org/5114.
- Dritte Option e.V., the group supporting Vanja in his*her case that ultimately led to the ruling has issued a statement on the new legislation which is due this year (in German): http://dritte-option.de/aufruf-an-die-community/.
- For another take on the same Supreme Court ruling by a French legal scholar (in French): http://sexandlaw.hypotheses.org/337/moron-puech-b-autre-sexe-outre-rhin-d-2018-p-73-74
