“How unusual bodies are treated is a critical historical question. In the United States they have been marked as ‘other,’ as monstrous, sinister, threatening, inferior, and unfortunate.  Once it was respectable to call those with unusual physical forms monsters, later not.” – Elizabeth Reis, Bodies in Doubt: an American History of Intersex
