Ethics in intersex disorders
Intersex cases are rare, and even medical personnel may not fully understand the finer nuances, implications and complexities of such cases.

Not only is the continuity of the family assured but old age provision for parents is made. The arrival of a girl is attended by less bonhomie, and is linked with the travails of finding a suitable match and dowry.
