Summary
"Merging critical theory, autobiography, and sexological archival research, Malatino explores how and why intersexuality became an anomalous embodiment requiring correction and how we can contest the pathologization of intersex and trans embodiment in order to develop ways of enacting gender otherwise to promote medical reform and human rights for intersex persons"-- Provided by publisher.
