世界首次國際陰陽人論壇

 世界首度國際陰陽人論壇2011935日於比利時布魯塞爾舉行。這次歷史性的會議匯聚了來自全球五大洲17個陰陽人組織代表、共24為運動者共同參與討論。

世界各地的陰陽人都還在未經當事人同意的情況下身受醫生決定與未經法律規範的不人道與令人羞辱的改造手術與賀爾蒙治療之中。這些治療目的是為了「矯正」陰陽人的生殖器與身體,以便讓陰陽人能符合性別二元的男性或女性。病理化陰陽人的結果,嚴重地違反人權並侵犯陰陽人身體的完整性與個人尊嚴。

本次論壇決議以終結對陰陽人的歧視目標,以保障陰陽人身體的完整與身體自決的權利:

1. 停止對陰陽人以「正常化」之名施以生殖器外科手術、心理上其他醫療上的傷害,包括在世界某些地方仍然存在的殺害嬰兒與(預防產下陰陽兒的)選擇性墮胎。

2. 保障所有的陰陽人個體,一定要在接受任何醫療措施與處置之前,能夠在充分自由與被完全告知資訊的情況下做出醫療決定

3. 創造與推動足以支持陰陽人及其家人的安全與快樂環境。

這個新建立的非正式網絡,將在國際、區域與國家層次推動尊重陰陽人人權。下次的論壇期待於
2012年底舉行。

本次論壇由ILGA(International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, LGBTI國際協會)與其歐洲分會ILGA-Europe發起並贊助。本論壇也同時也延伸邀請TGEU (Transgender Europe,歐洲跨性別組織) IGLYO (the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Youth and Student Organization,國際LGBTQ青少年與學生組織)等團體代表與會,並將持續跨大建立與其他女權、原住民與身心障礙者相關之人權及平權團體聯盟。

FIRST EVER INTERNATIONAL INTERSEX FORUM 

The world’s 1st International Intersex Organising Forum took place in Brussels between 3-5 September 2011. The historic event brought together 24 activists representing 17 intersex organisations from all continents. 

Around the world intersex individuals are being subjected to inhumane and degrading altering surgical and hormonal procedures, without consent of the intersex person, at the discretion of doctors and outside legal regulation. This is done to ‘normalise’ genitals and bodies in order to fit intersex people within the sex binary of men and women. Pathologisation of intersex individuals results in gross human rights violations and abuse bodily integrity and personal dignity. 

The Forum agreed on the demands aiming to end discrimination against intersex people and to ensure the right of bodily integrity and self determination: 

1. To put an end to mutilating and ‘normalising’ practices such as genital surgeries, psychological and other medical treatments, including infanticide and selective abortion (on the grounds of intersex) in some parts of the world.

2. To insure that the personal, free, prior, and fully informed consent of the intersex individual is a compulsory requirement in all medical practices and protocols.

3. Creating and facilitating supportive, safe and celebratory environments for intersex people, their families and surroundings.

This newly established informal network will campaign for the respect of intersex people’s human rights on international, regional and national levels. The next meeting of the Forum is expected to take place towards the end of 2012. 

The Forum was facilitated and sponsored by ILGA (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association) and its European Region, ILGA-Europe. The Forum also reached out to representatives of TGEU (Transgender Europe) and IGLYO (the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Youth and Student Organsiation) and will continue building wider alliances with other human rights and equality organsiations working in such areas as women’s rights, the rights of indigenous people and people with disabilities.
