Intersex and Identity The Contested Self review ç E-book, or Kindle E-pub With sensitivity and solid critical analysis Intersex and Identity brings to the fore the long ignored voices of people with intersex conditions This is an important and accessible book for all including 'patients' parents clinicians activists scholars and novice students Cheryl Chase Founder of the Intersex Society of North AmericaIn Intersex and Identity Preves has produced the most up to date comprehensive account available of what it is like to grow up and live with a body that isn't simply male or female This work is compassionate intelligent and beautifully written and promises to be well read and highly valued Alice Dreger author of Herm. The appalling length of time it s taken me to read this book is no reflection at all on the content or my response to it Just the usual matters of being too busy and having skewed priorities As I mentioned in a status update this is exactly the book I was looking for on this subject Here a professor of sociology tackles intersex via the study of identity I am not intersex myself but like many of us my gender identity isn t a neat match with my biology Also again like many of us I have spent most of my life frustrated by our society s binary approach to gender and the hetero normative approach to sexuality that goes with it People who are intersex aren t a neat fit with our society s pigeonholes for sexual biology let alone for gender identity or for conventional notions of sexuality Every day we are all compartmentalised into male and female often I think completely unnecessarily What do you do if you don t fit neatly into either compartment on the most basic level of chromosomes or genitals It s tough enough for those of us who have an unambiguously male or female body The book includes some very useful consideration on the history behind why intersex is currently seen as falling under the purview of medicine It certainly doesn t have to be In the majority of instances where there is nothing life threatening about the physical manifestations why isn t intersex something to be handled on a social basis with the support of the legal and where applicable religious systemsPreves dedication reads For those with the wisdom and courage to forge a new path We need to forge a new path indeed in which the birth of an intersex child isn t automatically treated as a medical emergencyIn her concluding chapter Preves says the clear message from my research is to decrease sex and gender categorization rather than to create yet a third rigid sex or gender line for us all to ponder Instead we should focus on loving and accepting children as they are not because of or in spite of their differences but rather just because they are terrific kids in their own right with or without bodies that vary from some mythical standardThree cheers for that The sooner we can all be people free to find our own identities and attractions the better Amen And I ll climb down off my soapbox now
