Today's guest has explored the science and psychology of sex and gender in her book Making Girls and Boys: inside the science of sex.
My comment :
Thanks to the Jane McCredie, and the ABC team for this programme.
Intersexed and Trans people face enormous challenges, most of which are completely un-necessary and entirely of society's making.
These challenges are due to an "Ick" factor regarding anything to do with sex that's strange or outside our own experience, and very often due to ignorance. The DLP's policy to prevent "Intersex marriages" is an example, they think it must be some sort of Leftist Political Plot To Undermine Society.
Others' lack of knowledge can and does kill us, quite literally, and certainly harms us.
Thanks for doing something that will inform people. Goodness knows, we need all the help we can get, if we're to get rid of discriminatory legislation and legally allow the provision of appropriate health care.
