  4. What is bodily autonomy?

  5. People born with intersex variation always have the same sex characteristics

People born with intersex variations are different to each other and it is important not to have a blanket treatment option for all of them. Each person will have a different need and it is paramount to put their needs first, rather than the needs of societal expectations. The health of intersex people is often discussed and managed in tertiary centres with multidisciplinary teams consisting of paediatricians, surgeons and fertility specialists amongst others. It’s always a good idea to have referral services at hand, e.g. the Royal Children’s Hospital in Victoria.
