Document Summary

First case of gender reassignment for child who ended up with the name. Penis had been burned off during castration so parents found doctor money who believed gender could be reassigned if surgery and hormones were given. Intersexed: infants are babies born with ambiguous genitals because of a hormone imbalance in the womb or some other cause. Then brenda continued to act like a boy through much of her childhood, lashing out, being teased at school and at 14 attempted suicide. Eventually told of her original gender she decided to undergo sex reassignment once more to be male. Eventually became david, married and adopted 3 kids. In 2004 at age 38 he committed suicide. Sex: depends on whether you were born with distinct male or female genitalia and a genetic program that released either male or female hormones to stimulate the development of your reproductive system.
