Op-ed: Stop Freaking Out About Female Intersex Athletes

“Op-ed: Stop Freaking Out About Female Intersex Athletes: The scientific authorities have said multiple times that intersex women don’t have an advantage in athletics. So won’t the sporting authorities just let them play?” featured in Advocate online.

Op-ed written by Hida Viloria a chairperson of OII, the Organization Intersex International, and director of its American affiliate, OII-USA. She educates about intersex as a writer, television and radio guest (BBC, Huffpost Live, Al Jazeera, 20/20, Oprah), lecturer, and consultant, and recently became the first openly intersex person to speak at the United Nations, along with Jason Collins and Martina Navratilova, at the event Sport Comes Out Against Homophobia.
