Dr. money had the son s sex reassigned after electrical cauterizing needle cut off brenda/bruce/david s penis, which left him intersexed. Intersexed infants are babies born with ambiguous genitals because of a hormone inbalance in the womb or some other cause. Your sex depends on whether you were born with distinct male or female genitals and a genetic program that released either male or female hormones to stimulate the development of your reproductive system. Your gender is your sense of being male or female and your playing of masculine and feminine roles in ways defined as appropriate by your culture and society. Gender identitiy is a person s identification with, or sense of belonging to, a particular sex biologically, psychologically and socially. A gender role is the set of behaviours associated with widely shared expectations about how males and females are supposed to act.
