Ms. Magazine investigates what happens to newborn babies if their bodies do not conform to establish standards for male and female bodies. The magazine discovered it is standard practice for surgeons to perform cosmetic surgery on babies with sexual organs that do not look male or female. "Sometimes clitorises look more like penises. Sometimes the outer labia on a girl baby fuse into a scrotal-looking sac so her genitals may appear almost indistinguishable from a typical newborn baby boy." Doctors sometimes decide to change the sex of newborns simply because their sex organs look more male or more female. Ms. Magazine has found that this practice leads to problems for the babies later in life.
