The same as any other child should be?
I worded that incorrectly. I just wonder what you think should be done when that phenomenon occurs in individuals, because I feel as if you’d disagree with the current practice.
My answer stands regardless.
Sorry, last thing. What would you think of an intersex individual deciding to use hormones to become “male” or “female” later in life (around puberty-ish)?
The Intersex Society of North America recommends a patient-center model of treatment for children with intersex conditions. This model views intersex as a “variation” in physical sex and not a medical problem. Their suggestion is to treat any medical conditions that need to be fixed immediately (such as urinary infections and metabolic disorders) and leave any non-essential treatments until the patient can consent for themselves for the treatment. This is due to high rates of gender reassignment amongst those with intersex conditions. They additionally suggest that the child be given a male or female sex after hormonal and genetic diagnostics.
Traditional concealment-centered models view intersex conditions as an abnormality that needs to be repaired. With this model, parents are encouraged to correct an intersex child’s ambiguous genitalia using surgery, hormonal, or other methods. Concealment-centered models use new medical technologies brought about by the advent of modern medical procedures, which encourages that the correction of the condition in order to prevent trauma to the child.
These are only two opinions in the treatment of intersex conditions. It is up to the parents, child, and medical staff to determine appropriate interventions for those with intersex conditions.

i can’t believe guns are a right in this country but housing and health care aren’t. like you don’t have the right to not die but you have the right to shoot people and get away with it if you’re white
so are we gonna discuss how fucked up it is that women have to wear makeup to be taken seriously at work and job interviews but if a woman has a genuine interest in and enjoyment of cosmetics she is written off as shallow, vain, and stupid, and consequently not taken seriously
"BDSM isn’t abuse"
And as soon as I visit their profile I find out they have other stupid views 😩
