Dreger's previous book was Hermaphrodites and the Medical Invention of Sex. She is a leader in the Intersex Society of North America (ISNA), a group dedicated to the view that children born with genital malformations should not be assigned a sex as infants. These children should be free to choose what sex they wish to be when they are older.
Dreger's "10 Myths About Intersex" was published in the ISNA booklet, Introduction to Intersex Activism: A Guide for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans Allies.
In dealing with the issue of conjoined twins, Dr. Dreger told a reporter with Knight-Ridder that she favors waiting to obtain informed consent from the conjoined twins themselves, rather than separating them when they are young. Dreger claimed, "It sounds strange, but I came to appreciate that it's [being conjoined] not all that different from being married, having a roommate or a child."
In another article written by Kristina Latham, Dreger observed: "The transgender and intersexual movements are similar because they both attempt to make people understand gender and sex as fluid. People need to think more carefully about their bodies and their na´ve and convenient myths about gender."
