From the Dr. Oz Website: When the Sexes Collide

A program about Intersex. Click on the play icon on the middle, then at the bottom left if it says the program is unavailable.

It's a program showing the ignorance of one non-specialist medic that so often leads to surgery that blights lives. When the Intersexed woman in the audience speaks, just look at the expressions of discomfort in those around her.

And then listen to what the Mom of an IS child has to say at the end.

I think my hormones are out of balance at the moment, because I'm crying now as I type this. But then again, maybe not.

Seeing a child is involved brought this home in a way little else can. One knows children are involved, intellectually but until the heart gets engaged...

Thanks for sticking with us supposedly normal people.

Zoe, if yours are out of balance then so are mine. It reminds me of how I felt watching that video of the trans children and their parents by American TV show 20/20 with Barbara Walters.

Refreshing to hear things like that isn't it?

Nice Nicole!, it's very refreshing to hear that and I think the show is not showing ignorance at all. :)
