What is intersex?
Intersex is physical differences in sex. They are differences where a person may appear to have features typical of both a male and a female, where a person may not be fully male or female or where a person is neither male nor female.
What causes intersex?
The search for the things that cause intersex has lead medical practitioners to treat intersex differences like a sickness.
OII Australia disagrees with this approach and holds that intersex is one of a number of physical differences in the spectrum of all the differences that are humanly possible.
