Summary
Deeply ingrained assumptions hold that every person should be designated either male or female, but some experts are now questioning whether that is correct. This program tells the stories of people born with ambiguous genitalia or what has often been called "intersex" anatomy. It is a condition long shrouded in shame and secrecy, even though DSDs (disorders of sexual development) are estimated to be as common as twins or red hair, appearing in almost one in 50 births. Viewers are presented with powerful insights from people living with DSDs and from medical professionals at the forefront of the issue, including clinical psychologist Tiger Devore, whose own sex was ambiguous at birth
