Not so. Born male, genetically and anatomically, she always identified as a girl. The biological explanation is illuminating. True, the basic human blueprint envisions two distinct sexes. Of course, this actually came about through evolution; and its complexity is wondrous. An embryo begins sexless, able to turn either male or female. Either path entails a lengthy to-do list of things that have to happen for the baby to conform to the blueprint, all regulated by elaborately choreographed chemical signaling via hormones.

Males, females, and chicks with dicks
I assume my readers possess the same common sense. A couple weeks ago I answered a letter from a woman who had just found out that her husband was cheating on her; the gist was that she was losing her sense of herself as a sexual creature. She illustrated this by saying that she felt like she was growing a penis. I thought she was being metaphorical, but several more literal-minded readers took me to task for my irresponsible advice. On the off chance that this chick was being literal, here are two of these letters. Dear Dategirl, Perhaps you are not very informed yourself about the care and feeding of the female sexual parts. Dick or Dock might be having a major hormonal crisis. It can be caused by ovarian cancer or a pituitary condition as well, both of which can be life threatening! Get some serious medical review or a good legal advisor who knows medicine to review your columns, deary.

The church is really good at putting on a happy, wholesome face to show the world, but if you look behind the curtain, you see that it's a despicable cult. I'm so sorry to hear this. If you think your girlfriend's resistance to being exposed to anything critical of Mormonism sounds cult-like, you are right.
