Abstract

In one year’s time, the Trump administration went from acknowledging the struggles of intersex people to pretending they don’t exist.On October 26, 2017, a year ago today, the Trump Administration issued a press release in recognition of intersex awareness day which acknowledged that intersex people—those born with a unique combination of what we perceive as male and female sex characteristics—“face violence, discrimination, harassment and persecution on account of their sex characteristics.” Intersex people around the country and the world welcomed this acknowledgement; it marked one more step in the right direction, and it echoed the first show of support for Intersex Awareness Day by the Obama administration in 2016.
