"[A] sensitive yet trenchant critique. . . .This important book gives voice to persons with intersex conditions whose experiences of pain, shame, isolation, and anger as a result of their medical treatment may have heretofore been dismissed by clinicians. By presenting these experiences in the context of ethnographic research that problematizes the objectivity of biomedicine, Karkazis may persuade the medical establishment to listen."
