Important clarification: CAH is a real and serious disease. There are no objections to pediatricians treating the physiological disorders in utero.
I see. So all gender-related behaviors and traits are strictly biological in nature.
Yes, delmoi, they are indeed proposing to reduce instances of female homosexuality in 46,XX girls and women with 21OHD deficiency; yes, they are indeed stating that a whole constellation of what we see as gender-related behaviors is biological in nature.
I guess we can agree that the “strictly” was beyond the pale.

It's basically just a little review article in a little journal. It really doesn't propose this therapy as a "treatment for masculinization"; it just states that this therapy would be expected to reduce masculinization, which I guess it probably would. The main focus is on introducing the audience to the concept and practice of prenatal diagnosis.
So we should withhold medical treatment from children en utero because it makes them more, uh, dateable.
