Growing up, Pidgeon Pagonis had a recurring nightmare of being rushed down a corridor in a hospital bed, lights blaring overhead. But in college, a professor mentioned intersex conditions in class, and Pagonis felt like a lightbulb had gone off.
They obtained their medical records and read them, sobbing, behind a locked door in a tiny, cinder block-walled study room at DePaul University in Chicago. There was no medical need for the clitoral surgery they underwent at age 4.
Today, Pagonis has been left with no external clitoris, making it almost impossible to experience sexual pleasure. As Pagonis would learn, they are far from alone. Advocates often note that is about the same percentage of the global population with red hair. But a growing number of patients have spoken out in recent years about how surgeries, performed when they were too young to understand—much less give consent—have deprived them of sexual pleasure, sterilized them, traumatized them, or altered their bodies to reinforce a gender assignment that is not theirs.
Last year, three former U. But a report released shortly after by Human Rights Watch and the intersex advocacy group interACT found no clinic has firmly instituted such a ban. Now, California lawmakers are poised to pass the first legislation to acknowledge the rights of intersex people in the United States.

The surgery Pagonis underwent at age 4 was not the only one they had as a child. At 13 months, doctors removed their internal testes.
