The claim that intersex people comprise 1.7% of the population is wildly inaccurate.
The Canadian Bar Association is pushing this lie as fact in 2023. The organization for lawyers in Canada is lying to all the lawyers in Canada that it represents, and those lawyers will unwittingly propagate the lie.
I have red hair AND also happen to have Swyer Syndrome with MGD. I was under the impression that Swyer showed up in more people though...As for my case: I didn't even find out about it until I was 32. - I had psychiatrists who knew about it prior and withheld the information from me. I can tell you that everything made sense after I learned about the oddity. - everything about my self-hood and why I am like I am finally made sense.
The Fausto-Sterling parameters are too strict? Welcome in the sex of birth definition. I also read Sax' articles. Excluding the Klinefelter syndrome is highly arguable. Besides the part on chromosomes, they have low testosterone level, high sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and raised gonadotrophins (LH and FSH levels). Not clinically relevant features? Weaker muscles and bones, wider hips, enlarged breast, increased belly fat (all conditions going toward a female development), smaller testicles and penis and so on. Intersex is exactly everything that doesn't fit in those "rigid parameters"
