Gwynne: I think I've caught up to most of the conversation now. The whole
red-hair thing confused me, since the incidence of red hair varies quite a bit
from place to place. And I wasn't aware that FGM victims were referred to as
intersex - I'd never heard of them being included in that grouping before.
