An intersex woman born with testicles and a vagina has declared ‘we are not freaks’ after being operated on as a baby.
Courtney Skaggs, 29, is genetically male but was also born with a clitoris.
However, her body rejected its male hormones and she now lives as an intersex woman following the invasive surgery from when she was a newborn.
Courtney, from San Diego in California, was deemed female by doctors soon after birth because of her overall physical appearance.
She then underwent surgery at six-weeks-old to ‘normalize’ her genitalia by removing her testicles, but is now distressed that such a major, life-changing procedure was conducted without her consent. (Metro)
