how do the parents of intersex choose?

the parents who have a baby that has girl and boy parts how do they choose which one stays and which one goes? what is they choose the wrong one,then what? in that case is it okay for the baby to be gay,b/c its not technically gay,its only liking the opposite sex like a str8 person. And how would the parents tell the child? even more so if they choose the wrong sex?

  • Most of the time they choose to make it a girl because it is easier to make a vagina then to make a penis. and less expensive too.

  • If it were to happen with one of my children I would give a unisex name, and let the child dress either as a boy or a girl until puberty came. Only 1 or the other sex will mature. Then the child will know which one they are. If they choose they may have the surgery, and if we have to we would move and start over again elsewhere.
