"Fixing Sex marks a groundbreaking contribution to the bioethical literature concerning the medical management of intersex conditions, taking up standard Western medical practice as a cultural artifact burdened with conventional understandings of masculinity and femininity, normal and abnormal, and indeed, medicine and culture. Karkazis’s investigation of the experiences of those involved in the management of ambiguously sexed bodies brings into conversation an unprecedented number of points of view: of persons with intersex conditions, parents of children, and the physicians who treat them. . . . Fixing Sex indubitably demonstrates the importance of the living perspectives of those affected by medical management. It also provides insight into the ways in which history may be essential for biomedical ethical thinking."
