example of this theory early on. Based on David’s adult life would you conclude that John Money was correct in his theory? Why or why not? a. Money based his research on a case study, which is not representative of the population. Much like Freud’s study of Little Hands, the results cannot be generalized over large populations. According to “---”, there are # cases of intersex per year in the US alone. b. Money theorized that nurture can override nature. Two male twins were the case study.

biological boy, who was named “Brenda” never felt like a female, despite being raised as one. As a result, he committed suicide after many years struggling to feel female. When he finally became male again, the struggle was still too much and he killed himself. c. **USE THIS FOR GENDER DEVELOPMENT ASSIGNMENT** d. John was very incorrect in his theory. Gender identity is biologic. Study was that 16 children were genetically boys, but physically without a penis. All but two were biologically given female parts. Of the study, 10 out of 16 felt male. When given the opportunity, they went back to being male. The remaining 6 were not followed up on. (find more info on study) e. 1 in every 1500 to 2000 are born intersex (estimate) V. According to the documentary, we learned that the prevalence of individuals identifying as trans-gender has doubled in the past year. Consult credible internet sources and compare these to the statistics presented in the documentary. Is the documentary accurate? a.

Sexual orientation does not have difference in the hypothalamus, however transgenders do have physical gender differences in the brain structure, 2012 study in Belgium, fraternal twins have little likelihood of one trans child making two. Identical twins have 40% chance of the identical twin being transgendered also.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
