Evidence Supporting the Biologic Nature of Gender Identity

Evidence Supporting the Biologic Nature of Gender Identity:

“Results Evidence that there is a biologic basis for gender identity primarily involves (1) data on gender identity in patients with disorders of sex development (DSDs, also known as differences of sex development) along with (2) neuroanatomical differences associated with gender identity.

Conclusions Although the mechanisms remain to be determined, there is strong support in the literature for a biologic basis of gender identity.”

  1. There is an interesting book I read called Evolution’s Rainbow, by Joan Roughgarden, which is about diversity and gender in different species. She is a scientist who happens to be transgender, and has researched gender non conformity and diversity in other species. The book blows away all of the traditional arguments about the gender binary, sex roles, and the purpose of variance (as opposed to deviance). It is written in lay-language and is worth slogging through a couple of chapters to get her drift even if you don’t have the time or the inclination to read the whole thing. If you have an e-reader, you can download the pdf at https://teoriaevolutiva.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/joan_roughgarden_evolutions_rainbow_diversitybookos-org1.pdf
