Well, that’s interesting.

Every time I read Middlesex I find more . . . Christiane Volling won a lawsuit in 2009 for non-consensual surgery in which they removed her uterus and female reproductive organs because she had been raised as a boy until that point in her life.  She didn’t even find out what they did until 30 years later!  Sounds a lot like what almost happened to Cal!  More over here.

Las Salinas, Dominican Republic is also reported to have 1 in 90 people born with alpha 5 reductase deficiency (called guevedoces), just like Cal.  Check out this fascinating article on it from the BBC.

And then there’s Wallace Fard Muhammad, I mean, talk about an enigma who “escaped history”!

There’s really no end to the rabbit holes you could go down with this book.
