    I too am intersex and I have had 5 surgeries directly from this. In addition I had testicular/ovarian cancer and several mature teratoma and or parasitic twins removed. I am married but I do also have gender issues that haunt my life. As a child I was told to not tell the truth about my surgeries even though the doctors never explained anything to me or my parents. The exception was when I was ten years old a nurse came into my hospital room and whispered they had saved me from being a girl.

    bloody good on ya Phoebe! I loved your film and you and your sisters have my utmost respect, and I wish all of you the best in the years to come. You took a very personal condition that has been presented in normal media very impersonally, and gave it the feeling and the understanding that needed to be given to the subject. I applaud you and your sister for making this docco as well as your other family members. Regards, Anthony.

    No objectivity. A laudable effort and clearly there is a unique and painful story to be told, but I felt the first person narration accentuated the anger and bitterness and did not provide a lot of thoughtful reflection on their lives.

    This looks like great aussie doco-making at its best. Damned that I missed this when it came out!
