Neither a girl nor a boy, or a little of both, the intersexes are from an invisible community that does not have any real legal, social or even medical status. Is it a pathology, an anomaly, or a difference among many? In civil status in any case, there are only two boxes to check - masculine or feminine. So, should we assign a sex to these babies by operating on them from birth? This is still the case in France, where every year, out of 2000 children, irreversible surgeries are performed. Luck or curse?

Video is in French with English subtitles.
