When doctors try to fix what ain’t broke
Remember how Dr. Ruth told us that size doesn't matter. As it turns out, the kindly doctor was wrong, and all those nervous adolescents she reassured have good reason to clutch their genitalia in fear. According to a new book called Lessons From the Intersexed (Rutgers University Press, August, 1999) by Suzanne Kessler, Professor of Psychology at Purchase College in New York, babies' genitals are measured with a ruler and snipped if they don't fit into supposedly normal size ranges.
