Hi Michelle pet, TThe same thing thats happening in Australia about intersexed kids being genetically altered to suit society and probably damaging them is going on in Scotland I found out. I contacted my msp John Mason who wrote to the head of nhs Scotland for his reply and he forwarded a copy onto me outlining tere reasons for continuing to this to children in rare cases in Scotland. If you want pet I could send a copy of it too you to let you know that Australias intersexed kids are not the only ones going under the knife. I am intersex having 47xxy which means I was born male, but am 80 per cent female in having breats with nipples elongated bones no adams apple almost hairless body born pear shaped and my main hormone that runs through me is 80 per cent estrogen, but I get a jag in my dartboard every 3 months to make up for what I should have in Testosterone., My doctor wants me to through gynomastia but I said yes initially then no because I like my tits, would’nt be the same without them. All the best pet. Barry firstname.lastname@example.org
