<< This story is really old news. Since it was published some years back, a decade or so or more, the Intersex movement has come into being. Intersex people are those born with ambiguous genitalia who previously had been assigned a sex by doctors concerned that the child would have difficulty socializing if they did not 'fix it." Intersex people have protested this and insisted that they be the ones to make the decision as to which sex they are or to remain as Intersex persons.
Gender identity is not the same as sexual biology. As transsexuals testify again and again, one can have the genitals of one sex but the gender of the other sex. Thus, doctors should not presume to know simply on the basis of the biological evidence at the time of birth..
Clearly, in the case of John/Joan Dr. Money made a big mistake and what is more didn't discover it, but continued to publish his erroneous conclusion after he stopped seeing the child.. A grad student went back to see how things were working out and discovered the tragic outcome. This case supports the right of the individual to determine their gender identity and interventions should not be made until that person is old enough to accept responsibility for the decision.
