transgendered children

After reading about every ones comments on the transgendered child in the video, i wanted to see what the cause geneticily or anitomicly was for this, or if one was even understood enough yet to where they could pinpoint if there even is a cause.  What i found was a theory, not a cause.  The theory, according to my findings, is that  in every fetus with in the first 8 weeks of conception every ones brain looks the same: female, and only after testosterone surges through the brain does the brain turn to male.  The theory suggest that during this stage there was a hormone imbalance that cause the testoterone to turn the body to male, but left the brain female.

During my research i came across a story on some one who is considered to be the youngest person ever said to be transgendered, though i wont get into it in this post, i highly suggest every one read it,

  1. Besides different levels of testosterone when the brain “turns into a males brain” did you read of any other differences between a male brain and a female brain. I’m curious…

  2. I can’t believe the comment Jazz made at only two years of age: “Mommy, when’s the good fairy going to come with her magic wand and change, you know, my genitalia?” ..To have been so sure of her sex at such a young age!

    Truly fascinating article.
