Last quote by Daniela Truffer

At two months old they castrated me and threw my testicles in the garbage bin without telling my parents. I was mutilated. I have spent my life in fear, pain and shame. I would have liked to decide for myself. These surgeries are medically unnecessary, irreversible and non-consensual. We don't deny there are psychosocial issues but these should be addressed with psychosocial tools, not with surgery. They always told me and my parents I shouldn't talk to anyone about it. There was a lot of shame and secrecy in the family. I was always hiding to make myself as invisible as possible.feedback
