>>For decades, parents and pediatricians have sought
to offer children whose anatomy does not conform to 
strictly male or female standards a surgical fix. But
the private quest for "normal" is now being challenged
in a very public way by some adults who underwent
genital surgery and speak of a high physical and
emotional toll.<<

--I wonder if that throws a monkey wrench into the
"one man, one woman" definition of marriage now being
used to ban gay marriage... are intersex individuals
allowed to marry according to their feelings, or
limited according to their birth certificates? Are
there even well-defined rules on the subject?
