The Kessler article has to do with gender and the stress society puts on fitting in today. When a child is born with unknown genitalia, the medical doctors seem to pressure the parents to chose a sex for the baby. This is done so that the baby can then grow up either male or female and live a â€śnormalâ€? life. They donâ€™t want to child to grow up different or unique to this society, they want them to fit in the norms in order to live their life like they are supposed to, like everyone else does. But the question here is that why is this pressure so strong for parents to decide what sex their child should be without knowing anything about what they will turn out like or what the childâ€™s preference might be later on in life. The children should be able to live their life the way they feel is right and decide that for themselves. Our society doesnâ€™t help with the fact that if people arenâ€™t so called â€śnormalâ€? they are not welcome or treated well. By deciding so soon, it could create even more problems if the child is living their life one way, when they feel the total opposite. Physical appearance isnâ€™t something we as a society should dwell on, let alone live by. By waiting and allowing the child to decide when they know could get our society to eventually accept intersexed people.
