Lecture 2 chapter 11: sexuality and gender. Intersexed infants are babies with ambiguous genitals because of a hormone imbalance in the womb or some other cause. we are biologically determined to be male or female. being male or female is not only determined by biology but also determined. a person"s gender comprises of feelings, attitudes, and behaviours associated with being male or female. gender identity - person"s identification with a particular sex. when you behave according to expectations, you develop a gender role. babies develop a sense of them being a boy or a girl at the age of one. At the age of around 2-3 they have a full blown sense of their gender identity. researchers believe that if gender reassignments occur before the age of 18 months, it will usually be successful but once social learning of the gender takes hold it is difficult to undo it.
