Intersex Society of North America - A world free of shame, secrecy, and unwanted genital surgery

OUR MISSION: The Intersex Society of North America (ISNA) is devoted to systemic change to end shame, secrecy [http://www.isna.org/faq/end_secrecy], and unwanted genital surgeries [http://www.isna.org/faq/surgery] for people born with an anatomy that someone decided is not standard for male or female [http://www.isna.org/faq/what_is_intersex]. We have learned from listening to individuals and families dealing with intersex that: Intersexuality is primarily a problem of stigma and trauma [http://www.isna.org/agenda], not gender [http://www.isna.org/faq/third-gender]. Parents’ distress [http://www.isna.org/faq/patient-centered] must not be treated by surgery on the child. Professional mental health care [http://www.isna.org/faq/patient-centered] is essential. Honest, complete disclosure [http://www.isna.org/faq/end_secrecy] is good medicine. All children should be assigned as boy or girl [http://www.isna.org/faq/gender_assignment], without early surgery. Click here to learn more about our agenda [http://www.isna.org/faq/patient-centered]. With your help, we can make the world a safer place for families dealing with intersex conditions.
