23:28 From the programs I have seen on this subject, many involving people who have  grown up after these "corrections", I would be greatly tempted to leave the child  alone. They are often unable to experience any sexual gratification in a "normal"  way (erectile tissue has been removed) and many don't "fit" their assigned  gender. This has been attested to by people born with this condition who have  had the operations. In fact, one intersexed person who teaches at a university  has been on several documentaries and is all for leaving these people as is, i.e.  "don't fix what ain't broke". Others who have had these reassignments were given  a gender they didn't think fit them. If the child is healthy otherwise, leave it alone. I would not feel right choosing for the child. Educate them and explain to them  why they are different. Teach them young and continue through out their teens.
