Fetishized, minimized, and co-opted: Is it an identity? A “gotcha”? A political football? Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (CAIS) is in fact a serious medical condition, vanishingly rare yet disproportionately discussed by everyone with an agenda in the gender wars. Jo, a.k.a. CAIS Files, is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, adoptive mother, and adult with CAIS, who eloquently sets the record straight on what Disorders of Sexual Development (DSDs) are and are not. Just like sex is a material reality rather than a feeling in a fantasist’s head, so are the numerous conditions (mis)labeled “intersex“. Enjoy the edifying wisdom and common sense of this long-overdue, much-anticipated episode.

One thought on “Episode 94: The CAIS Files”
I remember a trans identified female on the old butch-femme.com forum who had CAIS. She found out during a pelvic exam and the doctor ran out into the hallway like “hey, fellas, come here and get a load of this!” I felt so bad for her to have to go through that and what a lousy set of cards to be dealt in life.
