We, the undersigned, support the members of the Organisation Intersex International, in their demands that:

  1. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) abandon its demands that female athletes with intersex variations have their variations diagnosed and treated.
  2. The IOC allow the above mentioned athletes, known as intersex women, to compete as females without having to undergo diagnosis or “treatment.”
  3. The IOC, the press, and medical practitioners refer to females with intersex variations as “intersex women,” and not “women with disorders of sex development.”

One of the most important things you could do today. Sign this petition to allow intersex athletes to freely compete in the Olympics!

this should have way more notes. being an olympic standard athlete is hard enough as it is (fun fact: I was heading that way for a while when I was younger) without having to deal with assholes
