International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female, Intersex and All Forms of Genital Mutilation

The evidence is clear. 

So-called “normalizing” procedures aimed to modify sex characteristics without being personally consented to and justified by medical reasons irreversibly mutilate our bodies, our experiences, our lives, ourselves. 

These procedures are grounded in gender stereotypes, in homophobia and transphobia, in fear of bodily diversity, in ridiculous ideas about love, desire and sex, in ignorance, in the ease of which human rights can be violated in medical settings, in cruelty, in glorification of perpetrators and disdain for survivors, and in incredibly flawed scientific evidence. 

How do we know that? It’s clear. We are the evidence.
