got into the hands of some "do gooder" christian (or other:@@ group and they protested a treatment based on the description having no real idea the
severity of the deformity.

I don't know how you read that, but when I read that I see that nature is producing another variant on what's considered male and female. I don't
think we should be playing god.
Read elsewhere that among people with CAH there's a higher presence of bi or homosexuality. Most of them are still hetero just like in the general
population, though. Interesting.
There're severe cases of CAH that're life threatening. I agree that in those cases medical attention is needed. It looks like it will be needed for
life for some of them. Who ever said that natures games have to always benefit us? Sometimes they do in certain circumstances, and sometimes they're
just a random mess. My point is people sometimes overcontrol nature.
Our current way of living is very messed up, yet people accept it like it's good for them? It's so easy to pick something apart and find bad things
about it, but not when we already accept it.
But what I'm referencing is the fact that how the genital looks is being forced on the child by its parents before it has an ability to understand the
implications and make its own choice.
I feel grateful that I wasn't circumcised. My brother was. I am reminded of this now.
I don't think we have all the cards on the table. I think we're being foolish.
It's a lot easier for us to fixate on differences and fear them than it's to embrace the unknown. Or maybe some people just cannot live with the
unknown. They have to experiment or deny.
Sorry if I get personal. I just do not trust authority anymore. They're power addicted.
