Professor Elizabeth Reis quoted in Time article, “Gender is Not Just Chromosomes and Genitals”

The internet and social media are perhaps the most important aspects of the modern age that serve to amplify the voices and experiences of historically oppressed, marginalized or minority populations, and those who identify as genderqueer, transgender or intersex are prime examples.

At the time of writing, South Dakota has just passed a controversial bill that attempts to restrict bathroom usage of individuals to the bathroom that matches with their “chromosomes and anatomy” at birth. But where does this leave people with intersex characteristics, whether visible or invisible? Professor Elizabeth Reis comments in a new Time article on the matter.
