The tyranny of the Esthetics:

For me reading about genital correction it was very new to me. I had never herd of such a problem or even a surgery about this. I was disturbed reading this article how could a parent even chose to do this to there child when they know the effects it could have on there child. It is sad to read, “How it is easy to poke a hole rather than build a pole”; actually it really pissed me of more than anything. Why do we always try to conform to this perfect that doesn’t even really exist. So someone is a little different, is it worth the emotional and physical scaring they will now face for the rest of their lives.
I understand it may be easier to take care of a double genital situation at an early age, but how do you know if you child is a male or a female. Yes there is testing, but is that the correct answer. Shouldn’t we let this be a rare but magnificent opportunity, the choice to be either male or female? The child already has to suffer enough from being different from most people. I feel this issue needs to be more publicly known because these uneducated parents are making decisions for their child because they want them to look normal not because it is what best for the child. Does it ever cross the parents mind that there child we never be able to experience sexual pleasure because they just wanted there child to look normal but now they will never feel normal.
