The Journal of Medical Ethics have published this short contribution written with Katharine Dalke and Brian Earp on the word endosex.

Endosex, in contrast to intersex, refers to innate physical sex characteristics judged to fall within the broad range of what is considered “usual for binary female or male bodies by the medical field,” or to persons with such characteristics [1] (p. 437). In this short contribution, we explain the origins and increasing use of this little-known term and discuss its practical and ethical relevance to medicine as well as to scholarship from a range of disciplines concerned with individuals’ sexed embodiment.
