Similarity in transgender and cisgender children’s gender development | PNAS:

Questions of nature and nurture have dominated efforts to understand human gender development. Today’s transgender children provide a unique window into gender development: They have been treated as 2 different genders (1 gender before transition and 1 gender after their social transition) and are the first sizable group of children living as a gender that differs from their assigned sex. As such, their experiences enable insight into gender development that is otherwise not possible. The current study provides the largest report to date of the experiences of these early-transitioning children’s gender development.
