The Medicalization of Intersex Bodies

A workshop session by Mari Wrobi

The Medicalization of Intersex Bodies is a workshop about the objectification and mistreatment of intersex people within the medical community. From experimental genital surgeries, to the wide scale lack of informed consent on common procedures, to social and political stigma guiding medical necessity, and the medical abandonment of intersex people as they age out of pediatrics‚ intersex bodies have suffered enough. By first defining what “intersex” means and then detailing the very real problems that intersex people face today, this workshop seeks to guide medical providers and other professionals on how they can be a better intersex ally and advocate in their day-to-day lives.
