It's good news isn't it Zoe!

But what's this I hear about the Federat Attorney-General backtracking on the inclusion of Intersex people in federal anti-discrimination legislation?

Can I just clarify that I haven't read the report as yet, and my initial response was in response to an article that I read in the Canberra Times yesterday.

I've only just been made aware that this report has created a "third sex" for Intersex people, something that my initial response was not addressing.
