What is Intersex?

Intersex (also known within the medical community as DSD, or disorders of sex develpment) refers to a series of medical conditions in which a child's genetic sex (chromosomes) and phenotypic sex (genital appearance) do not match, or are somehow different from the "standard" definition of male or female. About one in 2,000 babies are born visibly intersexed, while some others are detected later.
