Carla’s love of pink no justification for gender assignment surgery

“Liking the colour pink is no justification for enforcing gender assignment surgery on a 5-year-old,” said the Australian Greens LGBTIQ spokesperson Senator Janet Rice. . . .

A 2013 Senate Inquiry into the issue of ‘Involuntary or coerced sterilisation of intersex people’ concluded that “irreversible medical treatment, particularly surgery, should only be performed on people who are unable to give consent if there is a health-related need to undertake that surgery, and that need cannot be as effectively met later, when that person can consent to surgery”.
