Intersex Voices: Vickie Boisseau (Partial Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome-PAIS)


  

Vickie Boisseau has Partial Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (PAIS), but was assigned a male gender.  Childhood "normalization" surgeries failed in adulthood.  A surgeon decided to remove her malfunctioning male organ, without Vickie's consent.

Vickie Boisseau participated in Transfaith's "For Such a Time as This" series and talks about herm experience.

I came out of the closet the day I was born. It took the doctors 3 days to figure out what the heck I was. They gave me SRS [sex-reassignment-surgery] because a child has to be either a male or female. [The doctors said,] "It can't be both. There is no such thing as ambiguous genitalia."
