Australia’s proposed internet filtering scheme

News reports and opinion pieces continue to flow about the Australian federal government’s planned scheme to filter the content on the Internet.

Internet filtering is of great concern to OII Australia. Intersex people have historically been silenced, effectively forbidden from talking about intersex, from knowing our status as intersex, and we have only just now begun finding our own voice in public. This website is an example of that.

Intersex conversations often use words considered to be unspeakable by some in Australian society. The term intersex itself contains a word banned by many filtering applications, “sex”.

We hope that this website will not be banned to Australian readers as a result of Australian Internet filtering.
