A recent >>> New York Times article by Katrina Karkazis und Rebecca Jordan-Young now confirmed this, referring to a (in the article not referenced) >>> 2013 publication in "The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism" (PDF) (doi: 10.1210/jc.2012-3893):
Therein, Intersex Genital Mutilators Patrick Fénichel, Françoise Paris, Pascal Philibert, Sylvie Hiéronimus, Laura Gaspari, Jean-Yves Kurzenne, Patrick Chevallier, Stéphane Bermon, Nicolas Chevalier, and Charles Sultan report how unnamed sports representatives sent them "4 young [...] women [aged 18–21] years [...] from rural or mountainous regions of developing countries" suspected of "hyperandrogenism" for screening in clinics in France (Nice, Montpellier) and Monaco. All 4 athletes were described to have undescended inguinal testes and "enlarged clitorises" ("clitoromegaly"), and eventually were diagnosed with 5-alpha-reductase deficiency. After further invasive testing, they were attested to have "elevated" testosterone levels.
Subsequently, all 4 athletes were coerced to submit to castration and partial clitoris amputation, surgical widening of the vagina and hormone "replacement theapy" with estrogens ("partial clitoridectomy with a bilateral gonadectomy, followed by a deferred feminizing vaginoplasty and estrogen replacement therapy"). According to the mutilators, all 4 athletes "consented" to the procedures explicitly described as medically unnecessary, in order to be able to be cleared for competition one year later. However, the report doesn't mention if the athletes were informed about all the "side effects" of the mutilating procedures, as well as that most survivors later regret having these procedures done on them, and it also doesn't mention whether or not the athletes were offered access to peer support – serving as a strong indicator that, as per usual, in fact they were NOT.
While there are still no ideal gender testing rules in sight, and therefore possible future revisions will mostly also remain imperfect, the above confirmed blatant human rights violations of intersex athletes from the global south by the global sports bodies once more highlight the urgent need for TRANSPARENCY and ACCOUNTABILITY in current and future gender testing, including mandatory DISCLOSURE of all cases of testing, banning, and enforced "medical" treatments (while of course respecting the privacy of the athletes concerned), as well as independent MONITORING including collaboration with intersex organisations.
