I felt it didn't rely on solid scientific evidence. I was reading at the time this book by Michel Foucault. He basically tells the story of this girl who clearly has a large clitoris.I mean, I'm a scientist, I'm a big believer of you can't just do things without being supported by evidence. She goes and gets sexually aroused as she sleeps in the bed of other girls, as it was normal for girls to do.Now, Keenan, who uses female pronouns, is making history.Hers is believed to be the first birth certificate ever issued in the United States that reads “intersex” in the gender field, instead of “male” or “female.” Lambda Legal attorney Paul Castillo commended the New York City agency “for issuing an accurate birth certificate.” “In the United States, birth certificates often provide access to a wide range of public services and critical identity documents, such as state IDs and passports,” Castillo said.In this case it was more like people would say it was just common sense—if the clitoris sticks out this much, you have to fix it. There were a lot of patients and it was always the same discussions. She goes to this religious institution for girls until eventually someone finds out, and then it's a big scandal.Or if the penis is really too small, it has to be bigger. And you know, I was never convinced by common sense. She becomes a pariah, and she ends up committing suicide.
Apart from the intriguing reproductive biology, it is economically important with a continuously growing aquaculture in the Mediterranean Sea, but limited available genetic resources.She has since undergone endocrinological testing to confirm her intersex status.“Not all intersex people will choose to identify legally as intersex,” Keenan told NBC Out, “and not all parents will choose to have their intersex child identified as intersex on birth documents.And, when males were exposed to levels as high as 25 ppb of atrazine, the frogs showed a ten-fold decrease in testosterone levels.Based on work done in other laboratories, Hayes' team suspects that atrazine feminizes the frogs by increasing production of an enzyme called aromatase, which converts testosterone to estrogen.
