Individuals born with one of the many conditions of genital ambiguity (aka intersexuality) constitute a challenge to human societies, which usually endorse a mostly binary sex/gender system in line with the binary biological system of reproduction in mammals. Societies vary tremendously in how they accommodate such individuals, but forms of stigmatization and discrimination are common.

In turn, the clinical management of individuals.
