For the first time in the United States, NYC has issued a birth certificate reading “intersex” in the gender field.
Sara Kelly Keenan, a Brooklyn native was just granted the validation for her intersex gender that had gone ignored for decades.
The original “lie” of an intersex birth had been perpetrated by the hospital and the adoption agency without her adoptive parents’ knowledge or consent. However, this second lie relied on their participation, observed Keenan. Trying to learn why she was not developing normally, they had taken their 16-year-old daughter to a succession of doctors, who ordered various tests.
The results showed Keenan to be genetically male with female genitalia and mixed internal reproductive anatomy. (Via CNN)
This is a huge win for gender identity politics, and shows we still have many improvements to make for everyone to be equal. Hopefully the United States will keep moving forward to become more progressive in these tentative times.
