About one or two weeks ago a Dutch court decided that hermaphrodites (persons with a certain intersex condition) do not have to undergo medical procedures in order to get their preferred sex registration recognised.

We have been instrumental in both the political statement and in the pointing the lawyer to the right grounds on which to act.
