This book concludes with a discussion of how intersex activists may benefit from forming mutually beneficial alliances with other social justice movements having similar goals and concerns, such as feminist and LGBT movements. In particular, it considers the potential for such alliances to help the intersex movement advance its agenda through the assertion of legal claims. Because current medical practices are driven by a combination of normative assumptions about sex, gender, sexual orientation, and disability, the intersex movement could adopt a number of legal strategies to ensure that decisions about the appropriate treatment for infants with an intersex condition are made under optimal circumstances.
