I read this first story and others because I once remembered my psychology teacher telling me that there are intersexed people that can be raised as either sex. I am bewildered by this concept and need some opinions and explanations. In the book of Genesis(forgot verse) God made made people male and female. But according to statistics of this pbs and other websites there are many people born each year with so called “ambiguous genitals.”
Consider the first story in the link. The baby is born looking like a male with all the male genitals but later on starts getting breasts and larger hips and a woman shape.NOTE: the person’s male genitals worked. The person is forced to get testosterone shots to become more manly but later on it life discovers “he” is a chemical “she”. As a Catholic what do you think would be the right choice or choices because maybe two would be ok. I am confused. Should the parents have
(1) done what they did.
(2) Had doctors perform surgery and remove the male genitals that worked
(3) Just let he/she develop naturally without interfering.
My conscience is telling me three because you are leaving the person as God made them but it seems wierd.
What do you this about all this?
