OII Australia president, Morgan Carpenter, has been published in the UNSW Law Society journal “Court of Conscience” 2015 issue on “rights and freedoms”. The paper considers what it means to address the rights and freedoms of people born with intersex traits:
“Intersex status” is a new attribute in federal anti-discrimination law, introduced in 2013, but few institutions have yet responded to this development. Those few have typically focused on the same issues of honorifics, pronouns and toilets that they might address in tackling gender identity discrimination, while media reports frequently suggest that LGBTI people are all gay. So what does the law say, and what does it mean to address the rights and freedoms of people born with intersex traits?
