"As a gynaecologist at University College Hospital, [Sarah Creighton] was the first to set out to compare those whose doctors had, at birth, attempted to 'normalise' their genitals, and those who had no surgery. Nobody had followed up on patients in the past, as, cloaked in secrecy, doctors had concealed the truth from parents and child. . . .
Creighton's findings were to start a British-led revolution: first, telling parents the truth about their child's ambiguous-looking sex and, even more radical, saying that perhaps he or she could stay that way."
