Gender Identity
The Difference Between Men and Women

Why are there men who don't seem to be quite 'men' and women who don't seem to be quite 'women'? It could be because of the male/female chromosome characteristics. Most mammals have only one pair of sex chromosomes in each cell. Males typically have one Y chromosome and one X chromosome, while females have two X chromosomes. In mammals, the Y chromosome contains a gene, SRY, which triggers embryonic development as a male. The Y chromosomes of humans and other mammals also contain other genes needed for normal sperm production and other male characteristics.

However there are exceptions and they are stark and real. For example: some men have two Xs and a Y ("XXY", see Klinefelter syndrome), or one X and two Ys (research XYY syndrome), and some women have three Xs or a single X instead of a double X ("X0", see Turner syndrome). There are other exceptions in which SRY is damaged (leading to an XY female), or copied to the X (leading to an XX male). For related phenomena, research the Androgen insensitivity syndrome and Intersex. These are differences we know about and of course there surely are many we know not of.

There is often developmental delay as well. There is also a condition called androgen insensitivity, wherein the bodies of a few XY males are unresponsive to testosterone and therefore will not have fully developed male characteristics. Often the choice is made to raise them as girls, since they will be intellectually normal but will never be normally developed men. Many live productive and fulfilled lives as women, and may marry and adopt children. Some, however, feel they really are males and struggle with whether to live as delicate, unmanly men or to live as females, and a small percentage may struggle with attraction to females because their brains are hardwired male. So when Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual people say they were born that way they are absolutely right. Kind of like when we realized that the world was round and not flat, we have to realize that people are different. The world we live in is not made up of only the male/female coupling/family scenarios and we must understand that. We're not going to sail off the end of a flat world and fall into oblivion by accepting that. Everyone has a distinct genetic makeup and sometimes it's different enough that most of us don't immediately understand it. It's time we all start looking at one another in a new light, understanding the wonderful differences between us. We can share with, and love, one another in this big wonderful world God has given us.

Now this is being written by one who loves Jesus and is a devout Christian. If you are a Christian, and are against the church reaching out to people who are different, then you need to wake up. If your not a Christian and resist accepting people who are different then you need to wake up as well.
