Intersex Solidarity Day - 8/11/08


Διαβάζω στο μπλογκ Queers United, ότι η σημερινή ημέρα, 8/11/08 είναι η Intersex Solidarity Day, η Ημέρα Αλληλεγγύης για τα intersexual άτομα. Αντιγράφω:

November 8th is Intersex Solidarity Day. The Intersex community is keeping us on our feet. Just a few days ago was Intersex Awareness Day! In honor of the day please make the commitment to educate yourself about intersexuality and to promote intersex activism to others.

I'd also like to encourage this post to be about what it means to stand in solidarity with the intersex community, whether you are intersex or not, what we can do to be advocates and allies?

Other topics for possible discussion as suggested by the official Intersex Solidarity Day are The life of Herculine Barbin, intersex "normalization" treatments without consent, the violence of the binary sex and gender system, the sexism implicit within the binary construct of sex and gender.

Please sign the Solidarity with the Intersex Community Petition
