This article coins the term Intersex Justice Pedagogy and outlines this practice as a decolonial and intersectional teaching and learning praxis that affirms bodily integrity and bodily autonomy as the practice of liberation for intersex people of color. The author examines the personal, political, and pedagogical exigency for a pedagogy that centers voices from overlapping and interlocking intersex, queer, trans, nonbinary, and feminist communities of color, and takes a critical approach to examining paradigms of power, sovereignty, and “the science of sex” in a social world. Using specific examples of texts and approaches to teaching and learning, this article inspires an examination of pedagogical approaches, not only to teaching intersex and trans studies, but also to teaching social justice, with an emphasis on bodily autonomy and bodily integrity from multiple disciplinary/interdisciplinary locations and perspectives.
