A trans intersex person has explained, in a moving opinion piece for Intersex Awareness Day (October 26), why they didn’t need surgery to be “fixed”. There are many different ways that a person can identify as intersex, which is an umbrella term encompassing those who are born with sex characteristics outside of the binary “female” and “male” definitions. Maddie Rose, who uses they/them pronouns, wrote about their experience growing up with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH) for Teen Vogue. People with MRKH are born with XX chromosomes but the genetic condition usually causes the vagina and uterus to be underdeveloped or absent.
