Ulrike Klöppel führt in ihrer materialreichen Studie vor, dass Hermaphroditismus für die Medizin immer wieder Anlass war, sich mit der Vielfalt der das Geschlecht bestimmenden Faktoren – Gestalt und Form der Genitalien, Chromosomengeschlecht, Keimdrüsengeschlecht (Hoden vs. Eierstöcke), Hormonhaushalt, Geschlechtsrolle und Geschlechtsidentität – zu befassen und zu versuchen, Geschlechtszugehörigkeiten verbindlich festzulegen. Neben einem historischen Teil, der vor allem die Medizingeschichte der Frühen Neuzeit, der Aufklärungszeit und des 19. Jahrhunderts in den Blick nimmt, wird im zweiten Teil der Arbeit der Zusammenhang zwischen der Formierung des gender-Konzepts und dem damit verbundenen Paradigmenwechsel in der Behandlung von Intersexualität dargestellt.
Ulrike Klöppel’s extensive study shows that hermaphroditism has, over and over again, caused medical science to study the variety of factors that set the gender – shape and form of the genitals, gender according to chromosomes, gender according to gonads (testicles vs. ovaries), hormonal balance, gender role and gender identity – and to try to determine a mandatory affiliation with a certain gender. In addition to a historical part which mainly sheds light on the medical history of the Early Modern Age, the Age of Enlightenment, and the 19th century, the second part of the study illustrates the correlation between the forming of the gender concept and the related paradigm change in the treatment of intersexuality.
