Focus:Human Rights
Action Request:Petition
Location:Netherlands

Maya Posch has been fighting for recognition as intersex in the Netherlands for nearly seven years. She has encountered hostility and apathy from doctors, psychologists and politicians who have ignored her, or worse. Her story is described at www.mayaposch.com

She is currently seeking refuge outside the Netherlands where she'll be safe.

We ask that the United Nations take action to ensure that the human rights of intersex people are upheld and that they are shown the same support and respect as anyone else. Intersex people must be protected from discrimination and from unwanted surgery. Provision must be made for them to receive medical support where needed without insurance penalties.

People like Maya depend on your support.

Please support this petition, tell your friends about it, and help to create a fairer society.

Think this is sad. Everyone should be free to have what ever sexual preference they like. With out being judge or being made to feel like a freak.

I agree, Caroline, but Maya's case in even more unfair than that. It's her own identity that's at stake, not her sexual orientation. Doctors in her own country believe and insist she's a transexual, even despite all the medical proof she has gathered showing that's not the case at all. She was born with parts from both sexes and doctors refuse to accept it. That's really cruel to her. Who are they to decide who she is?
