The Fight To Stop Genital Surgeries on Intersex Infants

Pidgeon Pagonis’ childhood memories include surgeries, hormone therapy, and repeated inspections of their genitals. When they turned 18 and got a copy of their medical records, they finally understood why.

The first page had a handwritten note: “46 XY male pseudohermaphrodite.” The procedures that followed were also listed: a clitoral reduction, vaginoplasty, and surgery to remove undescended testes.

For Pagonis, the results of some of these procedures have been both physically and psychologically damaging.

“The surgeries left me with tons of scar tissue and nerve damage,” Pagonis told VICE news.

Pagonis was born with an intersex condition called Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. It’s one of more than 20 conditions that fall under the medical umbrella of “intersex.” There’s a wide range of diagnoses, but each includes an individual having combinations of chromosomes, gonads, and genitalia that place them between typical definitions of male and female.

Surgeries are sometimes necessary to allow proper functioning or remove malignancies, but many of the procedures that Pagonis underwent as a child were cosmetic.

Pagonis and other intersex rights advocates are pushing for a ban on cosmetic genital surgeries for infants born with intersex variations, saying they do irreperable harm and should be delayed until a child is old enough to give consent.

Many pediatric urologists are staunchly against this growing movement, arguing that legislated delay on certain procedures is a one-size-fits-all approach that denies parents their right to decide on surgeries.

Some former patients also oppose a ban, saying the procedures they received as infants were necessary to save them from physical pain and emotional distress.

That battle is increasingly being waged in state legislatures. One of the most notable victories came last year, when the California State Senate passed a resolution condemning medically unnecessary surgeries. But that resolution was nonbinding, and intersex activists want a mechanism for enforcement.

Since 2016, lawmakers in five states — Indiana, Nevada, Texas, Connecticut, and California — have introduced legislation that would ban surgeries deemed medically unnecessary. Some efforts failed, while others have stalled. But it’s still percolating in some of the biggest states in the country: a second California measure that would enforce its earlier resolution was deferred to the 2020 legislative session. In November, a New York state legislator announced his own plans to introduce a similar bill, also in 2020.

“We’re pushing for a shift in the way that intersex people are treated towards a first do no harm approach,” said Pagonis.

“The surgeries can still happen, but the person can grow up and make a decision and have autonomy over their body. And that’s huge. It’s a human right.”

People Don’t Know What To Think About The Biden Allegations (HBO)

Joe Biden touched a Connecticut woman inappropriately at a 2009 fundraiser, including rubbing noses with her, the woman said Monday, days after another woman said the ex–vice president gave her an unwanted kiss on the back of her head in 2014.

“He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth,” Amy Lappos told the Hartford Courant.

“It wasn’t sexual,” she added.

Lappos said she met Biden at an October 2009 fundraiser in Greenwich, Connecticut, for U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, a Connecticut Democrat. Lappos was a congressional aide to Himes at the time, and said she was in the kitchen with other volunteers when Biden approached her. There are three photos that show Lappos with Biden at the event, the Courant reported, though they were taken before the nose-rubbing incident.

Here’s What You Need To Know About Paul Manafort

Paul Manafort was sentenced to 7 ½ years in prison as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Here’s what you need to know about President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman.

He was born in 1949 in Connecticut. He graduated from Georgetown University in 1974. He practiced law at a private firm before going into politics. He advised Gerald Ford’s 1976 presidential campaign and established deep connections as a political lobbyist.

Manafort served as an international consultant for world leaders, including dictators Mobuto Sese Seko of DR Congo and Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines.

In 2004, he became an adviser to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych was a pro-Russia strongman who was criticized for backing out of a deal with the EU. Riots broke out and protesters were killed. Yanukovych was ousted in 2014.

In March 2016, Trump hired Manafort to manage the RNC.  He was eventually promoted to campaign chairman.

Reports came out about his work in Ukraine. One report claimed that he was paid $10 million to lobby for Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, a close Putin ally. Manafort resigned from Trump’s campaign in August 2016. He was charged with secretly working to advance Russian interests.

In September 2018, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy and obstruction. He was also convicted of eight counts of tax and bank fraud in Virginia. New York state prosecutors have charged Manafort with 16 state felonies alleging he took part in a fraud scheme to illegally obtain millions of dollars.
