Joint Statement on “Male and Female He Created Them”, Towards a Path of Dialogue on the Question of Gender Theory in Education, by the Congregation for Catholic Education

We, intersex-led and allied networks, organizations and activists, express our grave concern regarding the position adopted by the Congregation for Catholic Education in regard to people born with variations of sex characteristics. The document treats us as validly existing only when unnamed, and pathologized as subjects of forced and coercive medical interventions. This will cause profound distress to many intersex people and our families. We reject these positions because of their intrinsic harm to intersex people.

Intersex people were affirmed by Jesus in Matthew 19:12, and by Augustine in City of God 16:8. For more than a millennium, Catholic Canon law regarded intersex people as valid and existing: as “hermaphrodites”, to be regarded in tracts on marriage and ordination as female or male depending upon predominant characteristics.[1] To us, it appears as though the erasure of that language in recent decades has also erased institutional memories. That harmful erasure is compounded in the document’s separation of the modern term, intersex (para 25), from a description of our bodies (para 24). It is painfully clear that the authors of this document did not consider, let alone confer with, the many intersex people across the world who are members of the Catholic faith.

Intersex people are those people born with variations of sex characteristics. We are profoundly troubled by the reproduction of pathologizing language to refer to our bodies, and the reaffirmation of medical authority over them. All around the world, intersex people face gross human rights violations, including medically unnecessary “normalizing” interventions, and the concealment of such practices on individuals from themselves and from society. Consequences include insensitivity, sterilization, chronic pain, osteoporosis and depression.[2] Those interventions have been identified by intersex organizations and human rights institutions as amounting to torture and ill treatment in medical settings.[3] Medical science should not be used to “construct individual identity” on the basis of outdated gender stereotypes, this is a source of great harm: it should be used where necessary to affirm individuals’ personal decisions.

Medical science does not exist outside of society, and does not hold the foremost expertise regarding intersex experiences: intersex people do. In past decades, medical professionals have adopted a violent and medically unfounded relationship with intersex bodies. The idea that forced and coercive medical interventions are necessary to build a healthy identity has never been supported by scientific evidence.

The suffering of people who, according to the document “have to live situations of sexual indeterminacy” (para 24) is primarily created by social stigma, by forced and coercive medical interventions, and also by approaches to pastoral care that separate us from our own affirmative language, and so from our peers and community.

The Yogyakarta Principles Plus Ten have defined sex characteristics as “each person’s physical features relating to sex, including genitalia and other sexual and reproductive anatomy, chromosomes, hormones, and secondary physical features emerging from puberty”, stating that “sex characteristics” must be considered an explicit ground for protection from violations of human rights.[4]

Demands

We urge the Congregation in particular and the Catholic Church in general to change its position on variations of sex characteristics; to defend and promote intersex people’s bodily autonomy and integrity.

We call for dialogue that recognizes our existence, that affirms our right to determine what happens to our bodies, our right to know the truth about our medical treatments, and that ends stigmatization and human rights violations.

Declaración conjunta sobre “Varón y mujer los creó” para una vía de diálogo sobre la cuestión de la teoría del género en la educación, por la Congregación para la Educación Católica

Nosotr*s, las redes dirigidas por personas intersex y aliad*s, organizaciones y activistas, expresamos nuestra grave preocupación concerniente a la postura adoptada por la Congregación para la Educación Católica con respecto a las personas nacidas con variaciones de las características sexuales. El documento considera nuestra existencia como válida solo cuando permanece innombrada, siendo patologizad*s como sujet*s de intervenciones médicas forzadas y coercitivas. Esto causará una profunda angustia a muchas personas intersex y a nuestras familias. Rechazamos estas posturas debido a su daño intrínseco a las personas intersex.

Las personas intersex fueron afirmadas por Jesús en Mateo 19:12, y por Agustín en la Ciudad de Dios 16:8. Durante más de un milenio, la ley canónica católica consideró a las personas intersex como válidas y existentes: como “hermafroditas”, para ser consideradas en tratados sobre el matrimonio y la ordenación, como femeninos o masculinos, según las características predominantes. [1] A nuestro parecer, el borrado de ese lenguaje en las últimas décadas también ha borrado la memoria institucional. Ese perjudicial borrado se complica en la separación del documento del término moderno, intersex (párrafo 25), de una descripción de nuestros cuerpos (párrafo 24). Es dolorosamente claro que l*s autores de este documento no consideraron, ni mucho menos consultaron, a las muchas personas intersex de todo el mundo que son miembr*s de la fe católica.

Las personas intersex son aquellas que nacen con variaciones de las características sexuales. Estamos profundamente preocupados por la reproducción del lenguaje patologizante para referirse a nuestros cuerpos y la reafirmación de la autoridad médica sobre ellos. En todo el mundo, las personas intersex se enfrentan a graves violaciones de los derechos humanos, incluidas las intervenciones de “normalización”, innecesarias desde el punto de vista médico, y el ocultamiento de tales prácticas en los individuos y en la sociedad. Las consecuencias incluyen insensibilidad, esterilización, dolor crónico, osteoporosis y depresión. [2] Estas intervenciones han sido identificadas por organizaciones intersex e instituciones de derechos humanos como equivalentes a tortura y malos tratos en entornos médicos [3]. La ciencia médica no debe utilizarse para “construir una identidad individual” sobre la base de estereotipos de género obsoletos, esto es una fuente de gran daño: debe usarse cuando sea necesario, para afirmar las decisiones personales de los individuos.

La ciencia médica no existe afuera de la sociedad, y no ostenta la experiencia más importante con respecto a las experiencias intersex: las personas intersex, sí. En décadas pasadas, los profesionales médicos han adoptado una relación violenta y médicamente infundada con los cuerpos intersex. La idea de que las intervenciones médicas forzadas y coercitivas son necesarias para construir una identidad saludable nunca ha sido respaldada por evidencia científica.

El sufrimiento de las personas que, según el documento, “tienen que vivir situaciones de indeterminación sexual” (párrafo 24), es creado principalmente por el estigma social, por las intervenciones médicas forzadas y coercitivas, y también por los enfoques de la atención pastoral que nos separan de nuestro propio lenguaje afirmativo, y por lo tanto de nuestr*s pares y comunidad.

Los Principios de Yogyakarta + 10 han definido las características sexuales como “las características físicas de cada persona relacionadas con el sexo, incluidos los genitales y demás anatomía sexual y reproductiva, los cromosomas, las hormonas y las características físicas secundarias que emergen de la pubertad”, y establecen que las “características sexuales” deben considerarse un motivo explícito para la protección contra las violaciones de los derechos humanos. [4]

Demandas

Instamos a la Congregación en particular y a la Iglesia Católica en general, a cambiar su posición sobre las variaciones de las características sexuales; defender y promover la autonomía e integridad corporal de las personas intersex.

Llamamos a un diálogo que reconozca nuestra existencia, que afirme nuestro derecho a determinar qué sucede con nuestros cuerpos, nuestro derecho a saber la verdad sobre nuestros tratamientos médicos y que termine con la estigmatización y las violaciones de los derechos humanos.

Dichiarazione congiunta su «Maschio e femmina li creò» Per una via di dialogo sulla questione del gender nell’educazione della Congregazione per l’educazione Cattolica.

Noi, reti, organizzazioni e attivistɜ intersex e alleatɜ, esprimiamo la nostra forte preoccupa- zione sulla posizione adottata dalla Congregazione per l’educazione Cattolica in relazione alle persone nate con variazioni delle caratteristiche di sesso. La dichiarazione ci tratta come realmente esistenti solo se innominatɜ e patologizzatɜ in quanto soggetti sottoposti ad inter- venti medici forzati e coercitivi. Questo provocherà forti disagi a molte persone intersex e alle loro famiglie. Noi rifiutiamo queste posizioni a causa dei danni intrinseci che possono causare alle persone intersex.

Le persone intersex vengono nominate da Gesù in Matteo 19:12, e da Agostino nella Città di Dio 16:8. Per più di un millennio il diritto canonico della Chiesa Cattolica ha riconosciuto l’esistenza e il valore giuridico delle persone intersex: come “ermafroditi” che devono essere considerati femmine o maschi in base alle loro caratteristiche dominanti, ai fini del matrimo- nio o dell’ordinazione sacerdotale. [1]

A noi sembra che l’eliminazione di tale linguaggio in tempi recenti abbia comportato anche la cancellazione della memoria istituzionale. Questa dannosa cancellazione è aggravata, in que- sta dichiarazione, dalla separazione dell’utilizzo del moderno termine intersex (par. 25), dalla descrizione dei nostri corpi (par. 24). È dolorosamente evidente che gli autori di questo do- cumento non considerano né si sono consultate con le molte persone intersex nel mondo, che appartengono alla religione cattolica.

Le persone intersex sono quelle persone nate con variazioni delle caratteristiche del sesso. Siamo profondamente preoccupatɜ per la riproduzione di un linguaggio patologizzante in re- lazione ai nostri corpi, e per la riaffermazione dell’autorità medica su di essi.

In tutto il mondo, le persone intersex affrontano gravi violazioni dei loro diritti umani, inclusi interventi medici non necessari per “normalizzare”, e il relativo occultamento di tali pratiche agli individui stessi e alla società.
Le conseguenze di tali interventi includono: insensibilità, sterilizzazione, dolori cronici, osteoporosi e depressione.[2] Questi interventi sono stati riconosciuti dalle organizzazioni intersex e dalle istituzioni per i diritti umani come paragonabili a forme di tortura e maltrat- tamenti all’interno delle strutture mediche.[3]

La scienza medica non dovrebbe essere usata per “costruire identità individuali” sulla base di stereotipi di genere superati, perché questo comporta grave danno: dovrebbe invece essere usata, laddove necessario, per affermare decisioni personali degli individui.

La scienza medica non esiste al di fuori della società, e non detiene competenze esclusive re- lative alle esperienze delle persone intersex, queste le detengono le persone intersex stesse. I professionisti del settore medico, nei decenni passati, hanno avuto una relazione violenta e clinicamente infondata con i corpi intersex. L’idea che interventi medici forzati e coercitivi siano necessari per costruire identità sane non è mai stata provata scientificamente.

La sofferenza delle persone che secondo la dichiarazione “devono vivere situazioni di inde- terminatezza sessuale” (pa.a 24) è principalmente dovuta allo stigma sociale, agli interventi medici forzati e coercitivi, e anche all’approccio del trattamento pastorale che ci separa, dal- l’autodeterminazione di noi stessi, così come dai nostri pari e dalla nostra comunità.

I principi di Yogyakarta Plus Ten hanno definito le caratteristiche di sesso come “tratti fisici di ogni individuo legati al sesso, inclusi i genitali e altre anatomie sessuali o riproduttive, cromosomi, ormoni, e caratteristiche fisiche secondarie che si sviluppano durante la pubertà”, affermando che le “caratteristiche del sesso” devono essere considerate come motivo specifi- co di protezione da violazioni dei diritti umani.[4]

Richieste

Invitiamo la Congregazione in particolare e la Chiesa Cattolica in generale a cambiare la pro- pria posizione in relazione alle variazioni nelle caratteristiche di sesso; di difendere e pro- muovere l’autonomia e l’integrità fisica delle persone intersex.

Chiediamo un dialogo che riconosca la nostra esistenza, che affermi il nostro diritto ad auto- determinare cosa succede ai nostri corpi, il nostro diritto di sapere la verità sui nostri tratta- menti medici, e che la stigmatizzazione e le violazioni dei diritti umani finiscano.
