Is that 160 or 160,000? Is that something that is normal or is it on the rise?

as of today when the bill was proposed there are 160,000 germans without gender oriented genitilia.   they need to be recognized on the birth certificates.

It must be a rough road for parents of children where the sex cannot be determined.  It doesn't matter during the early years, but waiting until puberty to figure out how your child sees the world is rough.  This is where communities come in.  If your family is part of a tight knit community (small town, neighborhood, church etc...) a child is more accepted and supported.  It's rough when it's just your family on their own.   All this legislation looks great on paper, but being part of a community is really the best environment and you can't legislate that.  How many people will draw their lines in the sand about what they will and won't 'accept' until one of the neighbors is different.  Sometimes a natural change of heart happens.  And that is beautiful.  It all comes down to empathy, respect, and kindness.   Human dignity at it's best.

LC,  A great post, community definitely is very important in our lives & development of our children, there are a hundreds of ways people can be different.  Children don't have a choice, on the way they are born, only on the way they live their lives. 

NP,   Great post also. You are a person that can say alot with few words. A skill I don't have, now I'm jealous.   PD
