Intersex Activist Tony Briffa, on Identifying as Intersex (and the Problematic Use of "DSD")

Tony Briffa, intersex activist and former mayor of the City of Hobsons Bay (Victoria, Australia), wrote a piece on OII-Australia's blog detailing why it is so important to advocate for using the term intersex, instead of "DSD." He discusses why the label "DSD" is still problematic and stigmatizing, and how using it is not an effective way to promote intersex human rights.

Right on, Tony! Great work, great piece.
