Abstract: This project investigates the methods employed by activists in the genital autonomy movement in the United States. “Intactivists” advocate the inalienable right of humans (and children in particular) to have intact genitals, free from any unnecessary or damaging modifications without their fully informed consent. For this project, I conducted structured interviews with sixteen self-identified intactivists to identify the primary methods they use to advocate for genital autonomy. Participants advocate the principle of autonomy by disseminating information about (a) the intact body and functions of the genitals; (b) the damages of genital surgeries that worsen with age; and (c) the ethical dilemmas associated with all medically unnecessary genital modifications.
