Buzzfeed article questions nonconsensual surgeries

This article provides in depth coverage of the groundbreaking South Carolina lawsuit by the Crawfords, parents of M.C., an intersex boy, against the doctors who operated on him. Great quotes by the Crawfords and OII-USA’s Hida Viloria. Some of the doctors interviewed expound deep prejudice against intersex traits, specifically ambiguous genitalia, and there are some inaccuracies about Viloria’s life and less than ideal language choices (for example, we are people, not just, or even always, “patients”), but otherwise great coverage and examination of the issues.
